Why "American Sniper" is not "just a movie"

"American Sniper," starring Bradley Cooper as a patriotic sniper serving in the Iraq War, is not “just a movie."

The Lord really does know best

"The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is long-suffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
