Rita Jahanforuz, a Persian born woman whose family moved to Israel when she was little, sings a message of Peace. She remakes Persian Oldies in Tel Aviv and apparently she is a big hit in Tehran, where underground parties are playing her music. The cultural arts, the heart of a people, unifies a people, tells their story and exposes their soul. John Paul II, freed his polish people reminding them to be not afraid to be who they were meant to be. He repeated this same theme to artists around the world. He recognized the great gift of an artist, that empowered a person to achieve freedom. Again and again he challenged the chains of inordinate power, with the words "Be Not Afraid", "Be Not Afraid".

When looking up RITA, she apparently has done a few concerts in New York City, Beverly Hills, California at an Israeli Leadership Council, and Washington DC, where she sang "Let Freedom Ring" at Lincoln's Memorial.
On the extreme left, the Communist Party undergoes a transformation, holding onto its same ideas, but changes in its appearance. The Communist Party-USA admitted on video that The United States of America is a very religious country. They use a movie, who American actor Mattew Modine, produced called "Jesus Is A Commie". It is a short film presenting quotes and ideas that produce an image that Jesus was a Communist.
A very conniving approach to recruiting the Youth of America, however many times the Catholic Church has spoken out against Socialism and Communism. http://www.vatican.va/ . You would think the Catholic Church with its many services across the world helping over a billion people, the poor and the afflicted, would know the devastating effects of Communism upon humanity.
2425 The Church has rejected the totalitarian and atheistic ideologies associated in modem times with "communism" or "socialism." She has likewise refused to accept, in the practice of "capitalism," individualism and the absolute primacy of the law of the marketplace over human labor.207 Regulating the economy solely by centralized planning perverts the basis of social bonds; regulating it solely by the law of the marketplace fails social justice, for "there are many human needs which cannot be satisfied by the market."208 Reasonable regulation of the marketplace and economic initiatives, in keeping with a just hierarchy of values and a view to the common good, is to be commended. Taken from The Catechism of the Catholic Church
So, William Jasper of "The NewAmerican" had this to say about CPUSA's use of an Episcopalian priest, Rev. Tim Yeager:
"The Communist Party USA (CPUSA), naturally, finds Modine’s new film “inspiring,” and uses it in a live-stream online video of a recent presentation entitled, Was Jesus a Communist? The program featured Communist Party functionary Roberta Wood as host, along with Rev. Tim Yeager and Pat Flagg as the commentators.
Rev. Yeager, of Grace Episcopal Church in Oak Park, Illinois, is Chairperson of the Communist Party USA’s Religion Commission. Pat Flagg is a member of the Commission. Yeager is also Financial Secretary/Treasurer of the National Organization of Legal Services Workers, United Auto Workers (UAW) Local Union 2320. In addition to his national CPUSA and union activism, Yeager is also an activist in Chicago-area politics, such as the Occupy Wall Street movement.Jesus is a Commie, the movie, is shown in many cities across the USA."
Video from CPUSA featuring Rev. Yeager admitting Jesus was a communist and how the people of the United States are a religious people.
CPUSA of course also realizes that they must also change their language, to appeal to the youth, so as not to appear as the old Communist Party the United States opposed in the 1950's. This is stated in YCPUSA.
"We have to recognize and put into context the language that Lenin uses in the text. During Lenin’s time period, there was still armed struggle being waged in different countries and the Soviet Union was just coming out of a civil war. The language and phrases that Lenin uses such as “iron discipline” of the Party and the “ruthless” struggle against the capitalist class reflects the climate of intense and deadly struggle that was taking place. Today, we would not use this type of language when discussing the work of the Party and the types of struggles that we are involved in.
Making all of these connections is more of an art than a science and the world communist movement continues to debate, discuss and develop the ideas started within Lenin’s work." Taken from Young Communist League USA http://yclusa.org/article/articleview/1832/1/319/
The Arts as you can see can be used to express the beauty of God, His Love for mankind, and Love between humanity, or used as a tool to disillusion those seeking Truth.
The Arts must be guided by prayer, the communication to and with God, our Creator, otherwise one will be a wreckage on the surf of life.
May the prayers of those who are calling on God's protection and assistance for Religious Freedom, for Life of the Unborn babies, for the Sanctity of Marriage between one man and one woman, inspire those in the arts to "Be Not Afraid" to reign in the Culture of Peace and Life.
HOLY SPIRIT, RAIN DOWN (SONG)
