Harry Potter star shouldn't be in a 'porn' movie

Editor,

I think the Standard has hit a new low, publishing the piece written by David Germain of the Associated Press (Jan. 22, "Radcliffe of 'Harry Potter' fame conjures brave new role"). The article is almost a full-page on the Sundance film festival. The headlines are prominent with the story of Daniel Radcliffe, aka Harry Potter, and his new movie. I read part of the article, because my children and grandchildren are Harry Potter fans. I could not finish it, after I read the graphic description of this movie and Mr. Radcliffe's role. To quote:   

"Radcliffe goes nude for an explicit sex scene with another man, makes out with co-star Dane DeHaan, and also appears in another sex scene with a clerk in a library while DeHaan's  character looks on."  

There are millions of young fans around the world that have supported and enjoyed the Harry Potter series. I am astounded that Mr. Radcliffe would take his responsibility as a role model so callously. I am sure he has enough money that he would not have to star in "porn" movies. I am appalled that Mr. Germain would glamorize this movie by promoting it. I am disappointed with the local newspaper for publishing it.  

Dr. Lambert Dolphin, a renown physicist, who now spends his time studying civilizations, stated that there are three stages to the collapse of a civilization. 

1) As a nation turns away from God, and loses contact with him, there is a "sexual revolution" beginning with an increase in premartial sex and adultery. This represents a breakdown in the integrity of the family. 2) The appearance and acceptance of homosexual immorality is one step farther away from God's intended purpose for marriage and sexual expression. 3) There is an appearance of violence in the society. Terrorism, and terrible crimes, child abuse, kidnapping and the murder of innocents, bizarre acts defying rational explanation. During this last stage good is often called evil and evil good. (Isa. 5:20-25) The moral order is turned upside down. That is where, it seems, we are now.
