Christianity is Dangerous

Or so the Motion Picture Association of America thinks. They just slapped a PG rating on a family Christian movie made by two church pastors in Georgia. They claim that the movie, which describes a high school coach struggling with his faith and receiving affirmative responses to his prayer:

...contained strong 'thematic elements' that might disturb some parents...

and also the MPAA:

decided that the movie was heavily laden with messages from one religion and that this might offend people from other religions. It's important that they used the word 'proselytizing' when they talked about giving this movie a PG...

This is a whole new low for the MPAA and for common sense vs. political correctness. It's not like a child seeing a positive view of Christianity is ever "disturbing," or that supporting one religion is "offensive" towards another. How many movies have the mass murderer quoting the Bible as he kills?

This is like having a "Viewer Discretion is Advised" warning before Touched by an Angel.
