Hollywood’S LatesT Cinematic AssaulT

“CNSNews.com – A conservative advocacy group is bristling over the PG rating given to a new family film with a “pro-God theme.”

According to the movie poster, the theme of Facing the Giants is, “Never give up, never back down, never lose faith.”
But the movie poster also says parental guidance is suggested “for some thematic elements.”

The American Family Association is outraged. It accuses the Motion Picture Association of America — the movie raters — of putting Christianity on the same level as sex, violence, and profanity because it might offend non-believers.
“The MPAA is controlled by Hollywood moguls known for their bitter opposition to Christianity,” the American Family Association said in an email to supporters.

According to its website, Facing the Giants tells the story of a Christian high school football coach who uses his faith to battle the giants of fear and failure. The plot includes answered prayers, a medical miracle, and messages from God.

In one scene, the coach tells a student to change his ways with God’s help. The boy tells the coach that not everybody believes “in all that honoring God and following Jesus stuff.”

The coach tells the boy that no one’s forcing anything on him: “Following Jesus Christ is the decision that you’re going to have to make for yourself. You may not want to accept it, because it will change your life. You will never be the same.”

The American Family Association believes that’s the exchange that earned the movie its PG rating.

The AFA is urging its supporters to send an email to the MPAA, asking it to “stop their anti-Christian bigotry.”

“The group says the MPAA refuses to warn parents about movies that promote the homosexual lifestyle in a positive manner; and it wonders why a movie that bills itself as “a powerful experience for the whole family, inspiring viewers to live with faith, hope, and love,” would need a warning attached to it.”

Blatant prejudice against religion…Jewish or Christian.
Whatever you do..don’t offend a Muzlim.

“Bryant Gumbel in a June, 2000 CBS “Early Show” interviewing Robert Knight of the Family Research Council appearing to defend the Boy Scouts refusal to allow homosexuals to be Scout leaders, thinking the mike was off, muttered that Knight was “a f***ing idiot.”

CNN founder Ted Turner asked employees who had ashes on their foreheads on Ash Wednesday if they were “a bunch of Jesus freaks?”

In his book “Bias” Bernard Goldberg reported that CBS producer Roxanne Russell called Christian activist and then-presidential candidate Gary Bauer “the little nut from the Christian group.”
The Media and Hollywood War Against Christianity continues..
Christians have been called “the American Taliban, with one reporter for a Florida newspaper, Bob Norman referring to “evangelical loonies,” and “way-out-there Christian wackos.” In the St. Petersburg Times columnist Robyn E. Blummer wrote that the “religious right” is trying in “Taliban-like ways to inject religion into public schools and the operations of government.”

Alright then.
Imagine the Lefty wailing and hand-wringing that would accompany anyone who dared called Muzlims “evangelical loonies”, or “way out there wackos”.
No, anti- Christian sentiments and self hating Jewry is far more typical of the way the movie industry does religion these days.
Parodies are loaded with Christian and Jewish stereotypes, invariably portrayed as malevolent, hypocrites, or simply pathetic.

Why you may ponder…
It’s simple. Traditional religious Judeo-Christian values stand in the way of their seedy political agenda.
How will they perpetuate their erotic indoctrination of young girls who are seduced into dressing like prostitutes?
How will they continue to tell mothers that the work force is the only place where fullfillment lies and that universal day care is the goal of all feminists?
How will they continue to vehemently advocate the normalcy and acceptance of homosexual relationships and ultimately marriage?

But of course the ahem..cough cough…Liberals will never cede to the fact that the entertainment industry and Hollywood specifically, has been primarily responsible for the rapid degeneration of our entire culture.

That lil tidbit of reality..is far too painful.
Kind of like looking in the mirror.
Ouch.

    The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) is now warning parents of movies which contain a reference to the Christian faith, equating Christianity as being on the same level of sex, violence and profanity when it comes to objectionable materia…..

    “The American Family Association believes that’s the exchange that earned the movie its PG rating.”

    I don’t know what to say. This defies all logic.

    The forces of evil just can’t stand for God’s work to be done, I guess.

  6. Gayle says:

    Always on Watch said: “The forces of evil just can’t stand for God’s work to be done, I guess.” …and that exactly hits the nail on the head! These people are afraid. They are running scared and fighting us with everything they have got simply because they are afraid. As well they should be. If they ever find themselves realizing God truly does exist, then they are going to be in a world of doo-doo of their own making.

    I have witnessed many miracles in my life-time, and I will probably witness many more. I do feel sorry for liberals for one reason… they have obviously never witnessed a miracle, or – if they have – they didn’t recognize it as such when they saw it. Their extreme selfishness has blinded them to the truth, which makes them far more seriously “blind” than any person who truly cannot see because his eyes are damaged.

    Nothing surprises me about Hollyweird and the movie industry.

  13. David says:

    Even worse that blatantly anti-Christian measures such as you note in this post are the “positive, uplifting ‘family values’ (whatever that means)” movies and tv shows that feature “people of faith” week in and week out in ways that show absolutely no connection with reality… or rather, a connection with reality-based fantasies of what Hollyweirdites think Christians believe, or how they behave.

    Example: Seventh Heaven. I have suffered through more than a few episodes of the show while friends or relatives watched, just to “be with” ‘em as much as one can while being anesthetized by a boob tube. I have asked specifically if the episodes they watched were typical, lacing my queries with specifics from the episode just past.

    Now, let me get this straight: the family featured in the show is supposedly not only Christian but the father’s a pastor, right? Yep. The only “pastors” I’ve known who were similar to the character in the show could only vaguely call themselves Christians. I actually saw a couple of episodes featuring “sermons” for example. Less “Christian” than a pep talk at a completely secular motivational rally or an EST seminar.

    Daily life? I’ve lived in a PK family, Nearly all my cousins did, too. many, many friends as well. That’s no PK family of a Christian pastor. Maybe some cultural “family values” sorta vague “My daddy was a Christian, I think, and I wanna reflect those values of his i liked, though certainly none of that biblical stuff that’s so uncomfortable” kinda way.

    A distortion that is to the point of deception is a lie, and that’s why I nearly vomit when that show’s on somewhere I’m trapped into watching. Was the same with the Touched by an Angel piece of crap.

    Anti-Christian doesn’t always mean acting directly to squelch Chrstian catch phrases. As Seventh heaven and Touched By An Angel demonstrate, if can also mean the secularization of Christianity to the point that there’s no Christianity there, just some vague “people of faith” message and (twilight zone music) references to prayer, “spirituality” and such… in ways that are distinctly unchristian, unbiblical and designed to mislead.

    I can tell that between this post and Alexandra’s recent post on Belief vs. Unbelief that I need to repost (or rework) an old post on *pistis* and *pisteuo*—and while I’m at it, throw in a lil treatment of *chesed* (also transliterated *’hesed*—you’ll have to forgive the transliterations, cos i don’t have an easy way to insert Koine Greek or Hebrew fonts in comments here :-) ) or *’emuwnah* (or *chemuwnah*), as well.

    There’s an awful lot our subliterate society has lost… and the fact that even “good Christian church folk” would watch (and enjoy) crap like Seventh Heaven and TBAA and think they portrayed Christianity in a positive light pretty much proves the point.

    *sigh*

  20. radar says:

    Hollywood, and I mean even Mel Gibson, really has no idea what a Christian really is…Which is why TBAA and 7th Heaven were so far off. Ignorance more than anything. Sure, there are individual Christians in the business but they don’t hold the purse strings or power.

    Then again, in some old-time denominations that have gotten radically far from Christ (Like having Darwin Sunday or preaching from Playboy Magazine??!!) that maybe 7th Heaven isn’t so far off. It nails the empty Christ-less religious folks who go to church to be nice or to be seen or as part of a bargain with God – “I won’t kill anyone, God, and I will go to church sometimes and then you won’t throw me into Hell, agreed?”

  21. Lyn says:

    David at TWC has (once again) clarified an issue that we might otherwise miss. It’s not that Hollywood is so much anti-Christian (there is that) but that it doesn’t understand true Christian faith. So it swings from one extreme to the other (from anti-Xn flicks like DaVinci Code to pablum like 7th Heaven) in search of a market. It is money driven, not necessarily anti-God driven (although it is admitted that Satan can use whatever tools are available for his anti-God agenda). But then every now and then an independent distribution like Mel’s Passion breaks through. Does not Hollywood have a clue? If they would make good stuff they’d make money (by and large G rated films outgross R rated films). The answer is they do not have a clue. Couldn’t find a clue with a clue-sniffing dog in a field of clues. That doesn’t make them bad. It demonstrates that they are lost.

    Angel, I really like Lyn’s comment “Couldn’t find a clue with a clue-sniffing dog in a field of clues!” That is really original. After church I must come back and visit the link to her blog.
