Protecting Young People From the Gospel

Marsha West of writes, "Enough is enough. NBC is censoring Veggie Tales star, Bob the Tomato. All our plump little friend wants to say is, "God made you special and He loves you very much," but the censors at NBC are worried that Bob’s love for God might offend some viewers. Let’s see now, showing Madonna’s special in November, where she’s hoisted up on a cross for the sole purpose of mocking the crucifixion of Jesus Christ is not deemed offensive to anyone, yet a tubby tomato that mentions the God of the Bible must be censored?"

That is right. NBC picked up "Veggie Tales", but they are editing out explicitly Christian content! At first they said they were shortening it to allow time for commercials, but the creator says the one he gave them had already been shortened.

The movie "Facing the Giants", which opened at number 12 despite being on only 441 screens, was given a PG rating even though it is clearly G material. The reason? The raters thought parents should be warned that the movie has "explicitly religious content".

So now we have Hollywood, with some of the worst culltural polluters on Earth, trying to protect us from "christian content".

Mark, you are right on this one. I saw "Facing the Giants" and it has NO objectionable material. It is a feel good movie which I recommend to any parent wanting to expose their children to a Gospel, pro-Christian message in a fun (camp style) way.

It won't win any Oscars for directing or acting but it is a real movie that addresses real people issues from a faith based perspective.
