I’ve been playing with this idea for a while, and I’m giving it a shot today. If it turns out I don’t like this idea, I can always delete it later. 😛 (I’m going to edit this post as necessary to clarify the intent, so don’t be surprised when the wording changes.)
I want to start building a list of famous people, stores, mayors, whatever, that captures how they feel about Christians, and a similar page about how famous people feel about America. When somebody expresses their faith in Jesus Christ publicly, they’ve announced to the world that they are a disciple of Christ and called to share their faith. I think if you’re trying to support actors or stores or whatever that are delivering a positive Christian message, such a list might help you determine what store to shop in or what movie to see. Here’s the list on Where they stand on Christianity, and it also shows up under the Links on the Sidebar.
Likewise, you might want to avoid some movies or stores because they’re actively working against Christians. One does not get listed if they have some other faith (or no faith at all) but if they’re actively trying to stop Christianity, then I’ll add them to the list.
I’m making a similar list based on Where they stand on America. In each case, I’ll try to minimize the commentary and let the public figures own words speak for him or her. I’ve populated some of the names off the top of my head, but I’ll update the links as I get around to it.
I don’t want to be disparaging; just noting whether they have expressed an opinion one way or the other. In other words, a person so listed won’t mind that he’s listed under a certain category. The Dixie Chicks, for example, certainly wouldn’t mind being listed under a category called “Dislikes George W. Bush.”
What do you think? Good idea or a bad one?

Good idea, but it might be more efficient to compile one list and add the performer/businesses’ comments – perhaps in a database format. That would make it easier for you to update, and easier for visitors to search. You could give each comment a rating on the positive/negative scale, so each person/business would then have an “over all” rating – ‘click the rating to see all the comments’ kind of thing? Each person/business could also be listed in several categories easily…..
Just a thought, I figure a little work up front to make the database/display would make the maintenance much easier down the road. My 2 cents.
I’m going to have to email you, I think. I’m lost.
