In celebration of July 4th, here's an article that showcases so many of the things wrong with America -- religion, politics, money, influence, etc. A nice reminder of how far we've strayed from the ideals that this country was founded upon, even if the Founding Fathers were a bunch of hypocrites (real hypocrites, not James Dobson hypocrites).

"This incident raises the disquieting possibility that the MPAA considers exposure to Christian themes more dangerous for children than exposure to gratuitous sex and violence," Blunt said in a letter to MPAA Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Dan Glickman.

Yes Roy, that's an excellent point, because so many movies with gratuitous sex and violence are getting G ratings.

"Mr. Blunt does continue to have questions about the process by which 'Facing the Giants' was rated and what that says about ratings creep in general," spokeswoman Burson Taylor said Friday.

We can argue about what a bunch of bullshit the MPAA ratings system can be, but it's sad that the only reason they're getting all up in arms over this is because of Jesus. I am so tired of the poor little repressed Christians getting all boo-hooey when they just think someone is doing something to go against their superstitions.
