    Why do we even pay lip service to the ratings scam of Hollywood? You wouldn’t expect them to honest and open, would you, as the heart of man is deceitful in all his ways, who can know it? Stay away from the Hollywood entertainment and protect yourself, your own heart.

      I don’t support Hollywood anyway. I don’t watch TV and I don’t go to movies anymore. Get it when it comes out on DVD. That way they make the least money from it. Or, you could just take your kids to see it anyway. If they make a big deal of it and won’t let your kids in, sue them.

      • DVD fan

        Better still, buy those DVDs from the used market so Hollywood doesn’t see a dime! Amazon resellers generally sell used copies, and there are sites that specialize in selling used discs (secondspin , goHastings, etc.) Just do a quick web search and you’ll find plenty.

    I noticed a shift in America’s morality back in the 1970’s. I learned Christian morality from my parents and my church, but in TV shows, movies and the news I was being taught a different morality. The media began introducing characters with different moral values and they were portrayed as funny, smart, charming and very likable. You wanted to be on their side because their side was the right side, the fair side and the good side, or so it was portrayed. People who had “old fashioned” Christian values were portrayed as out of touch, narrow minded, judgmental and un-likable (think All in the Family). Hollywood successfully de-moralized America. We are now living with the results.

    Hollywood is so twisted and immoral it’s easy to see why they would do this. What isn’t clear is why anyone would believe anything those money grubbing crazy-stupid morons publish anywhere. After all what would you expect from anyone that openly supports”The New World Order ” and Obummer.

  • TPCK353

    Who would put any stock in Hollywood period? That rating systems simply parallels the moral compass of our society. Both have been drifting for years.

  • Howieincvil

    Would that “R” rating be classified as “Religious”, “Reverend”, Righteous” ? That to me is the only way you could rate a clean decent movie pertaining to CHRIST.

    As far as I’m concerned, all of Hollywood should get an X rating!

    1970–it was the start of portraying all Christians as haters, bigots on TV and in the movies…… and “hippies,” like meathead, as being smarter than the adults. (It is the Marxist push to brainwash children to think anyone over thirty (like their parents) is dumb—bigoted–know-nothings—-when all of Western Civilization realized, since Socrates, that prior to 30 years of age, you know absolutely nothing—you are pretty much a dupe to whoever you “believe”. All text books use operant conditioning with no hard knowledge of ideas so people decide everything by emotions….no Reason.

    Then, they dumbed-down schools so that when you graduate—you know nothing of the brilliant ideology which founded the USA and created the Age of Reason and Renaissance (Christianity). God was kicked out by this time along with the Bible which taught people to be Wise—for centuries and in Natural Rights from God—not the State.

    “Go, Spot, Go”—replaced the Classical Education of John Milton, which stretched the mind and created profound thinkers. Now, kids are drugged, addicts to stuff, and can’t process any information because there is no knowledge in their mushy brains. They have never even heard of the most profound shapers of Western Civilization, so they can not understand slavery/socialism, Communist Manifesto, Plato’s Cave, freedom and our Constitution.

    • Frederikahere

      Eloquently put. Even some people on conservative sites such as this one, won’t recognize your classical references,due to the trends in education. I am over 45 and I remember studying them and actually THINKING about them in a Socratic way. Even writing papers on them.

      I’ve had to teach my kids about literature and the great Western classics because they don’t even hear about them in schools! Such a tragedy.
      We not only are losing our country, we are losing our minds and our souls, and for what? Free obama phones?

    • William Halterman

      You’d think with how much you claim this is going on that Christians are a minority in America. The Bible should have a “M” rating for Mature anyhow.

    Do you know who OWNS Hollywood?Do you care?

  • IslandJohn

    I never believed the people who said that Hollywood was in league with the devil. I always thought that’s crazy, but lately all the extreme immorality and outrageous attacks on Christianity have me thinking something is wrong. Just look at the world in general. I never really believed in the Revelations of the Bible, but when I see people eating soldiers organs and torturing little children to death, you have to wonder what is happening.

    • aRareSaneOne

      Well, its much better late to wake up than never. Hope you continue on the seeing path. Jesus said seek and you will find Him. Worked for me.

  • HM2_Sam

    This rating will likely turn into a plus for the movie.

  • slkgej6

    UNBELIEVABLE!!! It’s a good thing that leftists and progressives are completely immune to the absolute, rampant hypocrisy that so infests their attitudes, their ethics (aka, the lack thereof), and their actions.

    It never seems to occur to these “crusaders for justice” that they are NEVER just. They scream, swear, take their clothes off, destroy public property, rape, murder, plunder, pillage and attack any who dare to stand up for anything moral. At no time do they ever bother to trouble themselves with morality.

    This must be a great movie. In order to receive the kind of venom and attention of this sort from progressives must mean that it has a feel good message of gargantuan proportions. I’ll be attending this movie and make certain that my family and friends hear about it and attend. My family does not normally attend R-rated movies, but in this case, we’ll just consider the “R” rating to mean, “Righteous”. Kudos to the producers of this movie.

    1 Corinthians 1:

    20Where is the wise man? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? 21For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not come to know God, God was well-pleased through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe.22For indeed Jews ask for signs and Greeks search for wisdom; 23but we preach Christ crucified, to Jews a stumbling block and to Gentiles foolishness, 24but to those who are the called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. 25Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

    I am definitely going to share this with everyone in my email list and challenge them to see this movie when it comes to a theater near them, and take all of their children, the neighbors, the neighbors’ children, and all the friends and relatives they can bring with them. If everyone did this, the movie would bring in more money than any blockbuster out there rated P-13 or higher. That would show the industry where our hearts are. In this case, our money would speak volumes, wouldn’t it? Hope to see y’all there!

  • G-Mom

    Another reason why Hollywood is the cesspool of the nation.

  • old_salty_dawg99

    It started when the Supreme Court took a LIE and made it Law next they took a LIE and made it so millions of Babies could be MURDERED because they are inconvenent to a women who cannot take responsibility for their acts. Nor can they say no, keep their legs closed or make the man or men in their lives be responsible, and then we took GOD’S Creation Marriage and turned it into a LIE. We did by way of the Supreme Court that two men could marry or two women and that GOD who is PERFECT and makes NO MISTAKES did so by as some STUPIDLY say were put in the WRONG body. That is something GOD has ever done made a Homosexual or put someone in the WRONG body. GOD says Homosexuality is an ABOMINATION and he makes no mistakes so he never put one in the WRONG body ever. So it is these THREE MASSIVE LIES and IGNORANCE that man has done is DESTROYING America and we ask him to by our actions or lack of Actions.

    1963 prayer was outlawed. Been down hill since. SAT scores started dropping, teen pregnancy and crime started climbing. Check it out.

    So I have a question if the MPAA says it was for Some violence and drug use why can we not believe that is the reason it got an R rating?
    We are told to respect authority and the MPAA is the ratings Authority even though you disagree it is important that before you form your opinion at least what the MPAA says about it. Maybe the director is just trying to promote his movie.

  • ignorance

    You know its not news reporting when you tell people what to think, instead of what to think about. If you tell people that his movie received an R-rating because it has a “Jesus message”, then that’s what people will believe. No one gets to decide for themselves. I’m pretty sure I’m not going to watch this one. I’m sure that no one outside of christians is going to care what rating this movie gets. I judge a movie on whether I think its appropriate for the audience I’m going to show it to, no matter the rating and have found several PG and PG-13 movies/TV horrendous to show to young adults, while several R rated films are perfectly safe for 13 to 14 year olds. Shoot there’s a lot of G rated material I wouldn’t show to anyone, it only reduces the intelligence level of everyone in the room, and I don’t tolerate that. So what, It got an R-rating, from the 50 or so 2 sec clips shown all over news tonight and the web today, It looks like a movie with a direction that only teens and above would understand, and it will probably push its box office numbers through the roof, where a PG-13 rating probably wouldn’t get people to get off their personal pews (couches lol) and into the theater to watch it. Good luck, Ignorance is bliss.
