Atlas Shrugged Part 3 film
Part 3 has been given the greenlight:http://www.forbes.com/sites/billfrezza/ ... atlas-iii/
From the Forbes article:
The added scene, Father Amadeus was his name.
Peikoff: "Father Amadeus was Taggart's priest, to whom he confessed his sins. The priest was supposed to be a positive character honestly devoted to the good but practicing consistently the morality of mercy. Miss Rand dropped him, she told me, when she found that it was impossible to make such a character convincing."
I don't think this is a good idea. At all.
If the producer is in fact just saying this scene as a trial balloon, let's make sure we pop it!
TAKE HIM OUT! DON'T PUT HIM BACK!
No room for charity crap!
Read or listen to Tara Smith about charity, generosity, etc. Don't make room for it in this movie!https://estore.aynrand.org/p/180/virtue ... 3-download
