I kid you not, this is an actual post from Glenn Beck’s blog:
The American Dream Labs are changing the face of faith-based films. Alongside Ben McPherson, head of the American Dream Labs, Glenn unveiled two projects they are working on: ‘The Immortal’ and ‘The Revolutionary’. While there were few details revealed about the latter, Glenn did go into detail about ‘The Immortal’. It’s a gritty action-adventure film that marries a rugged version of Santa Claus with the eternal story of Jesus Christ.
