Anne Hathaway In 'Sound Of Music Live'? Von Trapp Family Reveals Their Ideal Choice For Maria

Anne Hathaway In 'Sound Of Music Live'? Von Trapp Family Reveals Their Ideal Choice For Maria

Commented Dec 9, 2013 at 19:55:31 in TV

“She gave it a good try but it was an impossible feat to begin with. Julie Andrews spoiled it for any future singer. I think we all like to sing along with the Sound of Music soundtrack and that's why the ratings were so good. I personally turned it off after 45 mins and decided to get the movie at the library.”

“I agree. There are some movies that were just so well done that no remake is ever going to hold up to scrutiny.”

“Well said”

“Thank you, Mrs. R! I have had 10 angry replies all saying that the police were right, the kids were brats, etc. etc., and not a single one of them seemed to get my point: if you want children to not act like brats, don't act like a brat or a bully yourself!

Your reply was a most welcome change, laugh, from those who seemed to think the officers should have been given medals rather than suspended.

That was never my child rearing theory, and my 31 year old son is the most polite man I know.”

“I have been a great fan of Hayden Panettiere since I saw her paddle up to fisherman about slaughter trapped dolphins and begged them to stop. It brought a lot of attention to the cruelty that was being committed. On the humanity scale, she's got more guts and character than most of us.”

“#1) according to wikipedia (article on HP);" In this video Panettiere mocked Republican candidate John McCain for his age and temper"...Did you read that?? She mocked someone b/c of his AGE (That's called AGEISM)...#2) Is she an advocate of all animals or just the one's she thinks look cute?? IF she WAS compassionate about animals, then she would be VEGETARIAN, but, she ISN"T (if she was, there would be an indication of it on her Wiki or google, but there isn't)”

“If the exact birth date is unknown, how reliable is anything about Buddhism. Could it be a bunch of made up stuff like other religions?”

patparco on Nov 30, 2013 at 21:40:18

“Buddhism is not primarily about belief like Christianity, it is about practice. The Buddha said "Come and see," Try the practice and see what happens.”

MoreButtons on Nov 28, 2013 at 14:14:55

“While I agree that religions are a "bunch of made up stuff", I'm not sure why knowing the EXACT birth date is necessary to know anything reliable about Buddhism.”

TrueWine on Nov 28, 2013 at 11:33:05

“Buddha said before he died, each person has to work on their own Enlightenment. Each person has the potential to become a Buddha by realizing the true nature of their own mind. Buddha taught how to do this, and many commented on those teachings afterwards. Buddhism is not set in stone, it is a living tradition handed down from teacher to student.”

JOHNMEDLIN on Nov 28, 2013 at 10:38:15

“Buddhism is not a religion. You can be a Jew or Catholic and practice Buddhism. It does not ask you to worship individuals past or present. Only to listen to what those people said and to see if it may not be of value to your life. Western Buddhism is largely parables and insightful messages designed to help you be at peace in spite of your troubles and hardships and to find joy and beauty in all things as we are created from the same basic material as everything else in the world and thusly related. Symbiotic. It does not want you to be wrapped up in the begats and time tables to the point you miss the message entirely. It is a living thing constantly changed as you become wiser and more open. The attention to dates and details instead of the message is what is destroying Christianity. Buddhism is a philosophy, not a religion. It was here before Christianity and will be here long after.”

“I do not find this picture attractive nor do I think displays of religious figures who don't respect women as equals are appropriate. They should have made a better choice. Like a gay couple.”

WhitneyAIA on Nov 27, 2013 at 16:26:31

“The role of women in Sikhism is outlined in the Sikh scriptures, which state that the woman is to be regarded as equal to the man. In Sikhism, women are considered to have the same souls as men and an equal right to grow spiritually. They are allowed to lead religious congregations, take part in the Akhand Path (the continuous recitation of the Holy Scriptures), perform Kirtan (congregational singing of hymns), work as a Granthi, and participate in all religious, cultural, social, and secular activities. As such, Sikhism was among the first major world religions to imply that women were equals to men. "Guru Nanak proclaimed the equality of men and women, and both he and the gurus that succeded him allowed women to take a full part in all the activities of Sikh worship and practice."[”

“Sikhs are respectful to women. Certainly more than the fundamentalist Christians I grew up with. It's a beautiful picture, and I find it hard to understand why a turban would be so offensive.”

notatowniegirl on Nov 27, 2013 at 14:15:30

“And? I think it's very attractive. They're both gorgeous human beings.”

Satyr Cat on Nov 27, 2013 at 14:14:30

“What you find attractive is irrelevant, I like caucasian men with beards, that doesn't make a clean shaven Will Smith ugly. Who is to say the image is not attractive, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. And for your information, Religion and Race are not a guarantee of sexism if you think it is, that is profiling. Besides racism is just as serious as homophobia.”

Anniebabe on Nov 27, 2013 at 13:45:52

“Not everyone who wears a turbin is a radical fundamentalist Muslim - or even Muslim - or wearing it in order to be attractive to you. This particular man is a Sikh and perhaps you should learn about that religion before you describe it as disrespectful to women. It is anything but...”

“he's a sikh, not a fascist islamist, sikhs give absolute equal treatment to women, we had female warriors and generals leading battalions of men into combat before the US was even a country, as well as women in leadership roles in villages, towns, sikh temples, women were also elected to lead the entire faith as well. please read more before making such comments”

“The gentleman depicted is not Muslim, he's visibly Sikh. A different religion with different beliefs. This image shows a handsome Skih man with an attractive girl wearing Gap clothing. Nothing else said.”

“Wait is Waris a misognyst? Nothing in the article says that he is, so I'm assuming you read somewhere that he hates women. Also, I'm not sure that Mr. Ahluwalia is a religious figure. On his wiki page it says he's an actor and designer, but nothing about him being a religious figure”

GraphicMatt on Nov 27, 2013 at 13:23:26

“This man is not a religious figure, and Sikhs are very respectful of their women. You seem quite ignorant Mrs. Roberts. The Guru Angad believed all should be educated, including women.”

PDG04 on Nov 27, 2013 at 13:22:34

“Amazing that you can accept one group but not another... you're just as ignorant as people who hate the gay community. Furthermore, not all Muslims hold the same beliefs towards women. Please don't confuse the radicals with the everyday Muslims. Get informed. And no, I'm neither gay or Muslim.”
