Christian movie rated PG

Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things….

[They] changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshiped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen….
And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

(Rom 1:21-32)

NewsMax reports today that a new movie produced by evangelical Christians has been given a rating of "PG" by the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA). The movie has no profanity, violence, sex, or nudity. So, what does it have to earn the "Parental Guidance Advised" rating?

Well, it has too much faith, of course! The MPAA explains that the movie has strong "thematic elements" that might disturb some parents. Horrors – you mean my kids might actually see something virtuous and good on the silver screen? We can't let that happen, says the MPAA – we'd better warn parents fast!

Does this seem a little backwards to you? I guess it wouldn't surprise Paul, who penned the words above about 2,000 years ago, because he (under inspiration of God) warned us it was coming.

*I've not seen the movie and I don't know anything about it more than what NewsMax reported today, so I'm neither condoning nor condemning it. I'm more interested in the basis for the PG rating than I am in the actual movie.
