Hollywood, as we all know, has a corner on the market of corrupting young people's minds via film. Fortunately, here to remedy that situation is one Rick Santorum: According to a press release he posted on his website, the former presidential candidate has become CEO of EchoLight Studios, a "faith and family film production company."

He writes:



Many of you have heard me talk about that if we are going to make a positive impact on our country's cultural challenges, we have to do it by reaching the masses often through entertainment. For too long, Hollywood has had a lock on influencing the youth of this country with a flawed message that goes against our values. Now, we can change that. EchoLight Studios has the resources and commitment to produce, finance and distribute faith-based and family friendly films.

According to the Washington Post, the studio's first film will be a Western, “The Redemption of Henry Myers,” wherein a bank robber has to "between revenge and Redemption." (I, for one, will be waiting with bated breath to see what he picks.) Here's the trailer:

EchoLight is based in Dallas, so we won't have the pleasure of running into Santorum at our local Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, but no doubt we'll feel his presence as he slowly but surely erodes the dastardly influence of Hollywood on our nation's young minds.
