Burleson's Retta Baptist Church Going All Quentin Tarantino. Or Not.


It's a film that the church was heavily involved in And the pastor thinks the R rating slapped upon it by the MPAA may involve some religious discrimination. If the Dallas Observer story is correct, he may be right:

The R, according to the movie poster, is for "some" drug use (a young mother smokes weed, then gets her kid taken away) and violence (the boy's father arms himself and raids a church to get the child back), both of which seem fairly staid when compared with Hollywood fare.
 "When people have seen the film, they are shocked by the rating," [Pastor Chuck] Kitchens told the Southern Baptist Texan.

Well they certainly wouldn't be the first producers/directors pissed at the MPAA. There's a great documentary about it titled "This Film is Not Yet Rated."

It's available for streaming on Netflix, and worth the time to watch. The movie-ratings system is ridiculously arbitrary.

Organized religion is nothing but a cash racket.

12:00 Maybe so, doesn't mean they should be treated any different by the MPAA because of it.

Organized government is nothing but a cash racket as well.
