Femnista: Faith & Villainy (May / June 2014)



Faith has in some way shaped millions of lives over the centuries. It inspired some, like Ghandi or Christ, to lead movements that changed the world. Others used it for personal power -- like Rodrigo Borgia.


This issue of Femnista explores those who used their faith for good... and those whose actions reveal that their faith was nothing more than the means to an end.

My Mission


To honor God in all that I do. To critique movies as objectively as possible, trying to be considerate of the moral views and spiritual concerns of others. To encourage my writers to reach their full potential. To inspire others to see the depth in popular entertainment. To never take anything at face value and strive to help other indie writers succeed.
