Producer: My Christian Film Got Rated R. It Has No Nudity, Sex, Bad Language

Full Title: Producer: My Christian Film Got Rated ‘R.’ It Has No Nudity, Sex, Bad Language, Gore, Drugs.

The Motion Picture Association of America adds its name to a list of increasingly brazen leftist media powerhouses who discriminate against conservative voices in the public square.

Facebook: Graphic images of a woman smashing and eating a baby do not violate “community standards” but quoting a Bible verse on homosexuality does.

Twitter: Conservative voices and alternative news sources frequently find themselves muzzled while profane rants against them are celebrated.

Google: Discriminatory algorithms ensure that articles praising the Second Amendment, President Trump, traditional marriage, and lashing out against illegal immigration are suppressed while the “fake news media” gets free rein.

It’s called censorship.

And now the MPAA. Kids killing each other in “The Hunger Games” with swords and spears and killer bees? PG-13. A zombie witch in the “Suicide Squad” wearing a lacy bikini gets her heart ripped out in the finale? PG-13. But the faith-based action moving “The Reliant” which has no foul language, no nudity, no torture, no glamorized violence or gore or zombies or orc beheadings or anything near “R” rated violence?

Rated R!

What prompted the “R” rating? The MPAA’s explanation is vague and inconsistent, but most likely, a scene wherein a 12-year-old skillfully uses a handgun to defend his sister from the villain.

Society works when everyone basically agrees with what is good and evil, what is criminal and not criminal, and what is appropriate and not appropriate.

This is not the place we currently live in.

If this doesn’t describe America . . . . God will not be mocked and His judgment is final.

God’s Wrath Against Sinful Humanity (Acts 1:18-32
18 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.

24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.

26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.

28 Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. 29 They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31 they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. 32 Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.

The trailer REALLY needs narration to explain what the story is about.

Who are these people?

Who are they fighting?

Etc etc

To quote Vox Day
"Jesus did not die on the cross so the world could rebuild the Tower of Babel"

But that's what half the people in this country are working towards whether they're just useful idiots or dedicated to that end consciously.

Somehow, Mel Gibson managed to do quite well with “The Passion”.

If it’s good, and espoused Christianity as a positive force; people will swarm to see it.

Some movie makers want an “R” rating.

Movie description:
Economic collapse causes widespread rioting and social unrest, leaving a lovesick 19-year-old girl struggling to care for her siblings in a stretch of woods bordered by lawless anarchy, wondering why a good God would let this happen. Written by J. P. Johnston

The critics panned The Passion of The Christ - one with the Chicago Tribune said, “If I were a Christian, I’d be appalled to have this primitive and pornographic bloodbath presume to speak for me.” But Gibson had enough name recognition to pull people in to see it.

I’m not suggesting this film is equal to Gibson’s, just noting an arbitrary rating used to reduce audience appeal on a Christian film. I wonder how this film would do if it had someone with Gibson’s name recognition attached to it.

I see the problem. Too “White” Too “Christian” Too “White Christian people with guns.” Too “Survivalist”. You know what that spells to Libs? White Supremacists. Yeah I know that is not true but that is what the Left sees behind every White, Christian with a gun prepared to defend himself and his family.

Take all the grownups you can to see it in the theaters.

Take the kids to see it... in your living room.

So all the old western kids shows would now be rated R. Batman would even be rated R. The riffleman, and the lone ranger even. What a world we live in now that the liberals and snow flakes have taken over.
