Christianity = PG rating

MPAA Rates Film 'PG' for It's Christian Message

Why should parents be forewarned about a Christian film with no sex, violence or raw language?

The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) has placed a PG rating on
forthcoming film because it has a Christian message.

Randy Sharp, director of special projects at the American Family
Association, said the rating that reviewers gave Facing the Giants was for
"thematic elements." Not only was the rating unwarranted, Sharp said the
reasoning behind the rating was just as offensive. "The MPAA gives a warning
to parents about content that may be found offensive," Sharp told CitizenLink.
"Usually, a PG rating would include violence or sexual content or profanity.
There is none of that during this movie, so the MPAA has basically said, 'We're
going to warn parents that it has a Christian theme — and it may be offensive."

That's crazy-- but I am glad more people will see it because of the rating. God works in all sorts of ways!

I agree with the idea that the PG might be a blessing in disguise. It sounds like an interesting film to me. I migh just have to check it out.

Hope all is well with you and the family.
