Now They Know How John Waters Feels

Republicans have their panties in a twist again, this time because some Jesus freak film got a PG rating instead of a G. They think it’s because the MPAA is a bunch of Jews and atheists trying to “protect” our children from hearing about Jesus in any way.

"This incident raises the disquieting possibility that the MPAA considers exposure to Christian themes more dangerous for children than exposure to gratuitous sex and violence," Blunt said in a letter to MPAA Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Dan Glickman.

After meeting with MPAA officials, Blunt and a handful of other House members said they remain concerned about the subjective native of the ratings process.
You know, now that you mention it, I can think of another film with a strong religious theme that got an R-rating:

The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men...

It all makes sense – anti-religion bias at the MPAA. I can’t wait to see this film.
