A Christian-made film, , Facing The Giants received a ‘PG’ rating instead of a ‘G’ based upon its evangelical Christian content according to the producer, Provident Films:
Provident spokesperson Kris Fuhr told Scripps Howard News Service that the MPAA used the word “proselytizing” in its explanation for giving the film–which contains no sex, violence, or profanity–a PG rating. “They decided that the movie was heavily laden with messages from one religion and that this might offend people from other religions,” Fuhr said, adding: “It is kind of interesting that faith has joined that list of deadly sins that the MPAA board wants to warn parents to worry about.”
After receiving more than 15,000 e-mails protesting the rating, MPAA (Motion Picture Assoc. of America) President Dan Glickman denies that religion was a factor in the rating of the film. Who are we to believe? See article: by Ann Morse of Weekly Standard.
