Issued pit bulls beat band as domestic pets I mention a few moments ago of the pit bulls were were bred to -- to kill. And it had a couple of Dexter corrected me on this that may not be totally accurate they are bred to be very vicious. And they have the the physiological. Equipment. To bite and just latch on to a victim. The a word. They may not have originally been -- for the despite more recently in recent years they've been bred for fighting. And there's no question that pit bulls can. Be very vicious but you know I've opened up this conversation to anybody who wants to support -- as loving family dogs. However pit bulls do have a instinct in them I mean there's -- there's there's got to be recent white pit bulls. Account for so many deaths. So much of a percentage of all the -- when it comes to. -- dog bites and and and dog attacks. 32. Attacks in the US. 32 fatalities occurred in 2013. So that's not that many. It's it's it's too many obviously because we're talking about dogs were talking about situations in many cases where it's a family dog. But pit bulls. Accounted for 78%. Of the 32 US stolen by relate to the -- last year 2013. Coming in sick it was the Rottweiler. Which accounted for. Just one out of the 32. And that between the two of them between the two dogs but they need to be 81%. Of the recorded dance. -- last year. So.

Ban them why do people think it's cool with demonic chain and walk -- I mentioned this earlier I see downtown all the time there are people who now want people's. But it's the attitude with which they walked the pit bulls that convinces me that the pit bull is actually -- to intimidate people. It's kind of like. A wave of gaining respect. They want respect I'm -- pit bull you better not mess with me. Again I'm I'm basing this on my perception of the year did their body language and the gratitude I know that's not always fair. -- if people are. Are. Deciding to owned pit bulls. Because they want that intimidation factor. Then that mentality that attitude is gonna transfer. Into the dog. And that could make the dog not necessarily a good family -- Also tonight we've talked about an eight year old girl who was told she's not welcome to return to her Christian school because she's not feminine enough that we'll tell you more about that coming up. And tonight really the big thing we've been talking about is the new movie no. Story Russell Crowe which is being criticized by some Christians and the criticism is now drawing criticism. -- a movie no opens up this Friday and it's it's based on no way and any sort. And that there are people who always become critical no matter -- if something is based on anything. -- from the Bible and and it is fair to point out that there was from the old testament so that's not. Just and -- for for Christians but yet. Others don't get upset. Why is -- that there are some Christians that just gets so upset win when something doesn't jibe with exactly what they think infield. And at what point. Is a movie not just a movie. And I I had this discussion when there's a movie out about. A historical figure and I remember we talked about it on the show with the movie Lincoln. There were people who are upset because well it did exactly happened that way. OK. It is a movie. And you shouldn't go to a movie to get a specific history lesson you should go to a movie to learn about the Bible you should go to a movie to be entertained. And if Hollywood chooses to do a movie about a Bible story. Isn't that going to just start a conversation about what's in the Bible. And how could that be considered to be negative thing. The -- blog tonight is is it about exactly what we're talking about it's a title Christians criticizing no movie need to lighten up. And there are people who disagree with me you agree or disagree you can read it share with your Christian and on Tuesday non Christian friends.

Where their congregation. Which. I can literally had tens of millions in box office profits that's what the studios try to edit Noah two win Christians over. But they also played down the criticism and called Christians fanatics. I say what the consumer decide and if the studio wants the Christian market. And that requires the studio to ensure the film is accurate in the studio should have the right to make. An accurate film but if they decide to make a movie based office story in the Bible.
