“Uncommon will help to educate teens, parents, and school officials on religious liberty in the public schools,” Liberty Counsel, a legal defense group that works to oppose LGBT civil rights, notes via a press release:
The film will address the questions about religious liberty of students in public schools. Estrada, who is currently touring for his most recent, faith-based film, Finding Faith, stated his reason for getting involved: “For too long the confusion about prayer at graduation or a Christian-themed musical to be performed in a public school has left Christians uncertain and silent. It’s time we found our voice.”
Both a film and a musical, Uncommon will challenge teens to live dynamically by faith even during unjustified conflict. The film is about high school students who run into conflict with those who think public schools should be religion-free zones. The film will feature scenes with drama, music, and dance.
The filmmakers are looking for local talent to cast in the film and will be conducting an open casting call at Thomas Road Baptist Church on March 22 and 23, 2013. The film will be a ‘High School Musical’ type of film production, so those with dance and singing talents are welcomed!
Uncommon will be filmed this summer in Lynchburg, Virginia. The majority of all filming will be completed at Liberty Christian Academy. More information about the film can be found at www.uncommonfilm.com.
Liberty Counsel is closely aligned with the late televangelist Jerry Falwell’s Liberty University.
Matt Barber, who work for both Liberty Counsel and Liberty University, recently attacked Sen. Rob Portman‘s son, Will, for his “abhorrent lifestyle.” Will Portman, who is 21, is gay, and attending Yale.
