Kevin Sorbo is on The Palin Radio Update with Kevin Scholla! We’ll need a Herculean effort to get through four more years of Obama, so we turn to Hercules himself. Sorbo and his wife have been talking common sense on the talk show circuit for years and now a new movie, starring Sorbo is sure to serve as inspiration to so many. The two Kevins discuss Sorbo’s upcoming film Abel’s Field, as well as his movie Christmas Angel, and his book "True Strength: My Journey from Hercules to Mere Mortal – And How Nearly Dying Saved My Life". Also, some words of wisdom from Governor Sarah Palin. Plus we’ll hear why we should savor Thanksgiving a bit longer and not rush into Christmas in SarahNET Radio’s Steel Resolve, our weekly commentary from Sarah Steelman.
Sorbo Defends Christianity, Denounces Political Correctness
In his interview with Kevin Scholla, Kevin Sorbo spoke about his background as an actor and current projects he is working on. Though the two Kevins did not discuss Gov. Palin during their interview, Sorbo spoke out against leftist attacks on Christianity while they protect other religions from similar attacks. Sorbo said political correctness contravenes common sense. Sorbo also said that there is a strong market for movies that emphasize positive values and themes such as love, but Hollywood producers have largely ignored it until they saw films – like the ones Sorbo has starred in – earning money.
Christmas Angel was released November 24 and is available via Netflix Streaming, Amazon, and Walmart. It also airing on the GMC Channel. He is working on Julia X which will be released to theaters in Europe. Sorbo is best known for his role in Hercules: the Legendary Journeys, which surpassed Baywatch as the most viewed TV show in the world and resulted in two spinoffs.
Sorbo on Mentoring Children
Sorbo spoke about his work as a mentor which has been ongoing since 1997. He is a spokesperson for "A World Fit For Kids, a non-profit organization that provides gang, drug, and dropout prevention to teens through mentoring programs" in Los Angeles. The after-school program boasts a 100% graduation rate compared to a 54% rate for the general population.
Sorbo on True Strength
At age 38, Sorbo suffered an aneurysm in his shoulder that triggered blood clots throughout his body and three strokes which left him blind and incapacitated. He details his recovery in True Strength. Sorbo’s biography is on acting website.
Sarah Steelman: Christmas Before Thanksgiving?
Sarah Steelman said the over-commercialization of Christmas (for those who still haven’t fallen prey to political correctness and still refer to it as Christmas and not "holiday") has pushed it ahead of Thanksgiving. She said BlacK Friday sales which now begin at midnight the morning after Thanksgiving result less than 24 hours to give thanks for the blessings we have. Steelman has a rule in her household which prohibits Christmas decorations and activities until after Thanksgiving has completely passed.
