MOVIEGUIDE®, through its sister organization, The Christian Film & Television Commission®, has filed a complaint with the Motion Picture Association of America about the R rating for the movie ‘Watchmen,' which opens tonight after midnight.
"This movie contains extreme violence, nudity, and sex, including rape" said Dr. Ted Baehr, chairman and spokesmen of the Commission. "Throughout most of the whole picture, one male character walks around completely naked, with his private parts waving in the breeze.
"This kind of content used to be rated X or NC-17," Dr. Baehr added. "The motion picture industry keeps changing its standards. No wonder the MPAA's rating system confuses parents."
Dr. Baehr said, "The MPAA office told us ...
A study in the United Kingdom overseas has found that teenagers are spending an average of 31 hours weekly on the Internet.
The study by www.cybersentinel.co.uk found that about 3.5 of those hours are spent communicating with friends and about two hours on YouTube and in chat rooms. Also, just over one hour is devoted to looking at cosmetic surgery procedures, including breast enlargements and collagen implants. Another 1.5 hours are spent on pregnancy and "family planning sites, and about one hour and 35 minutes investigating weight loss and diets. Finally, at least three hours are spent online each week working on homework.
One quarter, or 25%, of the 1,000 teenagers polled said they regularly speak to strangers online but think it is h...
The Brazilian government has decided to force 92% of its citizens to change their views that "God made men and women with different sexes so that they could fulfill their role and have children."
The new plan, which will be launched in May, is expected to attack heterosexual families as "homophobic," label all criticism of homosexual behavior as "criminal," and forcibly "re-educate" (i.e., brainwash) the public.
The plan's title? The "National Plan for the Promotion of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgendered Citizens."

Frank Wright, president of the National Religious Broadcasters, warned at the recent NRB Convention in Nashville that new proposed laws and regulations in Congress and President Obama's administration could be used against Christian broadcasters and preachers who label homosexuality a sin, who say that Jesus is the only way to God, or who don't provide anti-Christian "balance" on their radio programs.
Hate crimes legislation protecting "sexual orientation and gender identity" was introduced in January in Congress.
Also, President Obama's top advisor, David Axelrod, from Chicago, recently admitted to Fox News, that Obama and his new FCC commissioner may indeed consider supporting the application of a "Fairness Doctrine" against talk radio....
Many people, especially the elderly and those who have "atypical" conditions or who need experimental treatments, will be denied medical care under the "stimulus" bill signed by President Obama on February 17, according to healthcare expert Betsy McCaughey, chairman of the Committee to Reduce Infection Deaths, constitutional scholar and former Lieutenant Governor of New York (1995-1998).
The bill slows the development and use of new medications and technologies because they drive up costs. It also encourages elderly patients to forego treatment of many conditions that come with old age.
The provisions are similar to former regulations in the United Kingdom where it took nearly three years of protests to do away with a rule that said elder...
President Obama has appointed pornography advocate David Ogden as second in command to the nation's very liberal new Attorney General, Eric Holder.
"David Ogden is a hired gun from Playboy and the ACLU," Fidelis, a pro-family organization, says. "Ogden's record is nothing short of obscene. He has represented Playboy in multiple cases, Penthouse Magazine, the ACLU, and the largest distributor of hardcore pornography videos."
For example, Ogden represented Playboy and Penthouse to fight attempts to put filters on computers at federally-funded libraries.
MOVIEGUIDE® also opposes the appointment of this misguided person to the U.S. Dept. of Justice. Ogden clearly is not sensitive to the civil rights of women and children.

Shortly after becoming President, Barack Hussein Obama did away with George Bush's regulations preventing the use of taxpayer money to promote abortion, the murder of unborn children, overseas.
President Obama's new regulations are expected to kill more babies in Africa than any other continent.
The question arises, How many black babies does President Obama want to abort today?
If President Obama is going to support these nasty, merciless babykillers, how can he be trusted to do anything else, much less properly follow the United States Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, both of which overtly and clearly protect the right to life?
Los Angeles, Calif. - "Moviegoers in 2008 preferred movies with Christian and Biblical worldviews reflecting traditional values," reports family and child advocate and media scholar Dr. Ted Baehr, chairman of the Christian Film & Television Commission® (CFTVC), a Christian advocacy group based in Southern California.
Dr. Baehr said moviegoers in America and overseas also rejected movies that attacked Christianity, the Bible and "the traditional values of Western Civilization."
For example, he noted that CFTVC's annual analysis of the Top 270 or so movies released in 2008 showed that movies with strong or very strong Christian, Biblical or traditional worldviews (numbering 64 movies in total) averaged $39,778,002 million in America...
Los Angeles, Calif. - The Annual Movieguide® study of what movies do best at the box office shows that moviegoers prefer movies with Christian, Biblical worldviews much more than movies mocking God, Jesus Christ or the Bible.
According to the non-profit family guide to movies and entertainment's 2009 Annual Report to the Entertainment Industry of 2008 movies, movies with very strong Christian, biblical and/or moral worldviews did five to 33 times better at the theatrical box office in America and Canada in 2008 than movies with very strong secular humanist, nihilistic, anti-Christian, and/or anti-biblical worldviews.
The movies with very strong Christian, biblical and/or moral worldviews included such movies as PRINCE CASPIAN, FIREPROOF...
Moviegoers Prefer Clean Movies Without Explicit Sex, Nudity, Foul Language, and Drug Abuse, Annual Report Shows Again
Los Angeles, Calif. - Once again, Movieguide® Magazine's Annual Report to the Entertainment Industry shows that moviegoers prefer movies with no explicit sex, nudity and foul language.
"This was especially clear in 2008," said Dr. Ted Baehr, founder and publisher of Movieguide®: A Family Guide to Movies, Entertainment and Culture. "Movies with no foul language, sex and nudity averaged significantly more money at the theatrical box office in America and Canada than movies with some or a lot of such vulgarity, sex or nudity."
Movieguide®'s analysis of the top movies released in 2008 also showed that moviegoers rejected...
