    Christian Movie Slapped with PG Rating

    There's no sex, nudity, profanity or violence in "Facing the Giants," an inspirational family film about a high school football coach whose faith helps him and his young players overcome fear and failure.
    Why then, why did the all-powerful Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) slap it with a "PG" rating instead of the family-friendly "G" rating?

    That's what the shocked filmmakers who made the movie wanted to know. They found out soon enough - it was because of its Christian message of hope and faith in God.

    "The MPAA told us that the movie contained strong 'thematic elements' that might disturb some parents," explained Kris Fuhr, vice president for marketing at Provident Films, the subsidiary of Sony Pictures which will distribute the independently made film to 400 theaters this fall.

    "Their rationale was that when films are heavily-laden with messages from one religion, the MPAA wants to alert parents to something in the film that might be counter to what they themselves believe," said Fuhr, who added, "I personally find it interesting that faith in God has been added to the list of items that they want to warn parents about.

    THese people are certainly NOT Christians and they seem to hate Christianity.
    To be honest, either you rate movies with Christians values, or you don't rate movies with Christian values.

    Have you noticed they don't mind G ratings for movies with occult overtones?
