Since they have nothing better to do, lawmakers are upset and demanding
answers for why a movie about someone's faith received a PG rating.
House Majority Whip Roy Blunt and other lawmakers are demanding explanations after hearing complaints that the movie "Facing the Giants" was rated PG instead of G due to religious content.
We have a neverending war taking place in Iraq. We have millions of children without access to affordable health care. We have, oh my god, gays getting married. All the problems in the world, and people are complaining about a PG rating on a movie? What's wrong with these people?!
"The first communication from the MPAA was that religion was a factor in the ratings," said Kris Fuhr, vice president of marketing at Provident Films, which is owned by Sony Pictures. "Since then, the MPAA has revised those factors to no longer include religion."
Okay, religious factors will not be a consideration. So, if a children's movie about the joys of LeVay satanism is made, the religious factor will not be a consideration for the rating of the film? Makes me want to try it out... can we say "Deviled Egg Tales."
