A new study showing that the number of dirty words in movies has decreased about 50% in the last 25 years since MOVIEGUIDE® began publishing shows that MOVIEGUIDE®'s strategy of influencing Hollywood executives is working.
The study of foul language in G, PG and PG-13 movies by three Brigham Young University professors shows that the 1980s movies analyzed averaged 35 obscenities or profanities per movie, decreasing to 25 per movie in the 1990s, down to 16 per movie in the current decade!!!
The researchers only looked at movies featuring teenage characters or that had plots revolving around teenagers.
Their database included such movies as the SPIDER-MAN and HARRY POTTER flicks, BACK TO THE FUTURE, KARATE KID, CASPER, CLUELESS, HONEY I ...
The BBC, Great Britain's government run TV network, apparently has an ongoing policy to knock Christians and their faith while treating Islam and its followers with kid gloves.
BBC executives admitted in 2006 they would consider televising a scene where the Bible is thrown away but would never do the same thing with Islam's Koran. They also recently broadcast a show where a Christian fanatic beheaded a "moderate" Muslim, when the exact opposite is what has actually been happening in the real world!
"A Martian watching TV drama of late would probably conclude that the country is crawling with homicidal Islamophobes," a TV reviewer wrote.
Says Dr. John Sentamu, Christian Archbishop of York, "They can do to us what they dare not do to the M...
Rabbi Dr. Morton H. Pomerantz recently accused President Obama of "creating a climate of hate" against Jews by his recent actions and speeches.
Not only did Obama irrationally compare the Holocaust murder of six million Jews with Israel's actions in dealing with so-called "Palestinians" in a recent speech to Arabs and Muslims, but he also whitewashed the violent, warlike history of the false Muslim "prophet" Mohammed and his brutal descendents.
Pomerantz also noted that Obama did not mention the brutal oppression of women in Arab and Muslim countries. Nor did he mention the fact that "Arab Muslims were the greatest slave traders in the history of humanity."
In fact, reports from Africa show that Muslims are still practicing slavery even...
President Obama signed a proclamation on June 1 supporting the neo-fascist, homosexual indoctrination of Americans, including young children, and the oppression of those who do not agree with the radical homosexual agenda, including the campaigns for civil unions and sae0-sex marriage.
In Proclamation 8387, which can be found on the Internet at http://www.thefederalregister.com/d.p/2009-06-04-E9-13281, Obama writes:
"My Administration has partnered with the LGBT community to advance a wide range of initiatives. At the international level, I have joined efforts at the United Nations to decriminalize homosexuality around the world. Here at home, I continue to support measures to bring the full spectrum of equal rights to LGBT Americans. The...
The facts of history show that Christianity has played the major role in securing people's rights and liberty in Great Britain, Europe, Japan, South Korea, the former Soviet Union, parts of the Middle East, and the United States.
Throughout history, Christian leaders in Great Britain, the United States, Continental Europe, Asia, India, Africa, the Middle East, South America, and Australia not only have led the way in securing our political, religious and economic rights and liberty, but also have led the way in providing charity to the poor and needy, including healthcare.
This shows that we don't need government programs to make the world a better place. All we need is a bigger commitment to faith in Jesus Christ and His Gospel. Individu...
A conviction of X-rated pornographers in Pensacola and Pace, Florida last year proves once again that local communities can stop pornography if they put their minds to it.
"Local obscenity trials of X-rated photography, videos and movies almost always result in a conviction," MOVIEGUIDE® Publisher Dr. Ted Baehr, who has a law degree from the prestigious New York University School of Law, said. "Most citizen juries will convict the perpetrators, because they want to protect their children and grandchildren.
"Your local community can stop pornography in its tracks!"
Facing a three-week obscenity trial forced the four key players in the case to all plead guilty.
"We have this problem statewide," Assistant State Attorney Russ Edgar said. "...
While European, American, British, and Canadian leaders are caving in to demands from the misguided Muslims in their midst, Christians in Pakistan are coming under increased persecution by Muslims.
According to the Los Angeles Times on Feb. 5, "rising Islamic extremism" in that country is putting more Christians in serious danger. Dozens have been jailed for allegedly violating arcane blasphemy laws forbidding anyone to defame Islam, even indirectly or unintentionally. Christians are also barred from equal pay, housing and educational opportunities, or even attacked or murdered.
Consequently, many Christians are so fearful that they don't wear any outward symbols of Christian faith.
"The U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom...
With the new HARRY POTTER movie coming just around the corner, it's important to remember this:
Nearly three quarters of American teenagers, or 73%, have engaged in at least one experiment with witchcraft or psychic activities, with about 50% having explored witchcraft.
Even more worrisome is that 69% of Born-Again teenagers have experimented at least once with witchcraft or psychic activities.
Please don't let your child or grandchild be seduced by the occult!

Los Angeles, Calif. - Family advocate and Christian media scholar Dr. Ted Baehr, publisher of Movieguide®: The Family Guide to Movies and Entertainment, announced today that a new three-year study of the Top 25 movies released in 2006-2008 earning the most money overseas shows that international moviegoers prefer clean movies with strong or very strong Christian, moral and/or redemptive content and values.
"This study is significant because it matches our annual study of the Top 25 Movies at the Box Office in America and Canada and the top home video sales annually," Dr. Baehr asserted, "and because Hollywood now makes more money overseas than it does in the United States."
The Movieguide® study found that 20 of the Top 25 Movies Over...
