It’s been about 40 days and 40 nights of controversy over Darren Aronofsky’s biblical epic “Noah” which opened last weekend taking in an estimated $44 million. As usual, any film involving Biblical material will generate discussion and some disagreement about faithfulness and artistic decisions.

5:20 – Kresta Comments: The New Divorce Phrase “Conscious Uncoupling” Dangerous, Ignorant and Untrue.
Last week, celebrity couple Gwtneth Paltro and Chris Martin announced their separation. In that statement they introduced the world to a new phrase: “Conscious Uncoupling.” It didn’t take long for the news of a celebrity divorce to be quickly eclipsed by that substitute term for the D word, one virtually no one had ever heard before. The person who coined the phrase, Katherine Woodward Thomas, a New Age 56-year-old psychotherapist, had this to say: “It’s a kinder term for divorce. It is essentially a no-drama approach to separation, one that protects the children and encourages both sides to avoid pointing fingers.” Al discusses this term and its dangers.
