Today’s Mission: To petition the movie industry to add a rating to the Voluntary Film Rating System. It is our goal to get a new rating added that will alert Christians to language within the film/movie that uses the Lord’s name in vain; specifically, curse words that are pre-fixed by “God”.

Advocates for God speak for God in saying that there are many films/movies that would be just as good or better without “God” as a pre-fix to curse words. No, we are not saying that all curse words need to be removed. We are saying that we do not choose to view or listen to films/movies that use God’s name in vain. Therefore, we have a right to know before renting or buying them that the films/movies we choose will not include blasphemies and will therefore meet God’s standards of approval.

blaspheme: To speak of (God or a sacred entity) in an irreverent, impious manner.

BLASPHEMER: A contemptuous or profane act, utterance, or writing concerning God

Cursing is one thing, but using God's name before the curse word is blasphemous. Advocates for God want to be able to watch a movie without cringing every time our Father's name is abused in this way. Therefore, we are determined to work hard to get as many Christians as possible to join us in this petition.
