A lesson about men for marriage-minded women (and also about women for marriage-minded men) from the movie “High Noon”

Will S.:

Excellent post.

A few years back, I did a short review for a Reformed magazine of High Noon:

A Western classic, High Noon portrays a town sheriff who has to face an unrepentant criminal just released from jail; the sheriff finds himself increasingly isolated, as the townspeople turn away in fear. Not a Christian movie per se, High Noon nevertheless should strike a chord with Reformed viewers, with its portrayal of the universal wickedness of humanity (shown as afflicting even the most upright and decent citizens, in terms of their moral cowardice in the face of evil), but also, in terms of the sheriff’s heroic unwillingness to compromise with evil, standing on principle, regardless of the cost. An entertaining, thought-provoking movie.

But I don’t think I gave much thought to the wife’s character, just seeing it as part and parcel of the general cowardice of the townspeople, though still remembering that ‘a man’s foes shall be they of his own household’, as well. Whereas I think if I saw the movie for the first time now, that might be the first thing I’d notice, the wife’s refusal to stand by her man, to be a proper help-meet.

There are indeed many lessons to be learned from ‘High Noon’, as well as it being an entertaining Western.

One of my favorite movies for explaining the differences between men and women is “High Noon” (1952).

Here’s the summary from IMDB:

Former marshal Will Kane (Gary Cooper) is preparing to leave the small town of Hadleyville, New Mexico, with his new bride, Amy (Grace Kelly), when he learns that local criminal Frank Miller has been set free and is coming to seek revenge on the marshal who turned him in. When he starts recruiting deputies to fight Miller, Kane is discouraged to find that the people of Hadleyville turn cowardly when the time comes for a showdown, and he must face Miller and his cronies alone.

The main theme of the film concerns Amy’s decision to break her wedding vows the very day that she makes them. She tells her new husband that…

Last Quotes from “Women are Destroying Themselves”

The First Rule of Fight Church: You Do Not Talk About Fight Church

Fight Church: Can You Love Your Neighbor While Pummeling Him?

Among the thorny theological questions that divide men, one that hasn’t been much considered is “Can you love your neighbor as yourself, and at the same time, knee him in the face as hard as you can?” In fact, that very question is posed by one of the subjects of Fight Church, the new Lionsgate documentary by Daniel Junge and Bryan Storkel, that follows the fights and faith journeys of a more than a half dozen mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters in and out of the ring. In Fight Church, we meet several charismatic, articulate and, might I add, attractive men of the Word, strong in their ties and devotion to their Christian faith. The film’s characters span the spectrum: from a retired gun-toting, strong willed brawler to a retired kick-boxer who is now anti-CWF (Christian While Fighting). Ultimately, all of the faithful men in the documentary are, well, wrestling with what message their brutal vocation sends to believers and non-believers alike.

Sounds like an intriguing movie. I hope it eventually comes out on Canadian Netflix.

Homeless drunkard / stoner guy doesn’t sleep on the street every night, because of Game


If you were homeless, could you still pick up chicks?

Meet Joe, the homeless Millennial who has mastered the art of getting women to take him home with them.

Originally from Boston, Joe, 26, may spend his daylight hours panhandling in Manhattan – making up to $150 on a given day – but his nights are a completely different ballgame.

If you don’t think Joe looks homeless, well, that’s only because he’s good at what he does. According to Joe, his only responsibility is to not look homeless. In his mind, his appearance is a survival tactic.

Joe spends whatever money he makes on keeping his appearance up, in addition to copious amounts of drugs and booze, with one goal in mind: attract as many girls as possible.

For Joe, sleeping with a lady is his only chance at sleeping with a roof over his head. Joe uses his charm and good looks to sleep out with chicks three to four nights a week, where he’ll shower and enjoy an evening away from the streets.


Pies for Peace!

And now, from a comment at Dalrock’s this morning, it seems lefties and neo-con Karl Rove are pushing the idea of having Condoleezza Rice become NFL commissioner.

Between all that, and the annual October pinkifying of the NFL, it’s clear the NFL is more interested in female fans than their male base (though they seem to want other male fans)…
