So now religious themes are apparently as worrisome as profanity, violence and brief nudity. The Motion Picture Association of America is now trying to save face:
"...Joan Graves, chairman of the MPAA ratings board, contacted the Catholic League, admitting that she was the MPAA official who originally spoke to Fuhr. According to Graves, she told Fuhr that the PG rating was given to the movie, not for being overtly religious, but because of mature issues, e.g., depression, matters relating to pregnancy and sports-related violence..."
Actually, I found Disney's The Lion King quite violent, and I'm pretty sure there was a pregnancy in that movie.
Anyway, I'm not going to rant and rave about how we're all going to h-e-l-l in a handbasket. Nope, I think this is a wonderful turn of events. What kind of self-respecting kid would want to go to a G-rated movie anyway? This is providential because the movie is going to reach a far wider audience than it originally would have. God works in mysterious ways indeed.
