    You are so right. I had spiderman on tv one night for my son and they said "damn", I almost fell out of my chair. It was rated TV-8y. But still, I mean come on!

    I think it is good, too, but what I have a problem with is marketing it as "Films for Christian Viewers".

    From the link - "The home-video division of Twentieth Century Fox said Tuesday it will acquire as many as a dozen family friendly movies a year and market them under the FoxFaith banner."
    That implies to me that they feel only Christians would be interested in family friendly movies. Christians haven't cornered the market on family values. Just ask any of our Jewish, Buddist, or Atheist posters here.

    Does anyone know what The Passion of the Christ is rated? I thought it was R. The article references that movie, but R-rated movies aren't usually family friendly!

    ...at least an NC-17, or more likely an X rating for both sex and violence... (if it were to be made into a movie)

    I agree. I am not Christian nor am I religious, but I generally like films aimed at Family and values. If they are marketing family values, Great! If they are going to preach Christianity, then they are limiting their audience.

    It is nice to watch wholesome stuff..
    I don't care too much about swearing or sex stuff (as long as its not over graphic) but I can't tolerate violence on kids shows..
    Michelle, they learn really quickly 'don't do as I do, do as I say' lol
    I swear all the time but my 8 yr old would never think to swear, he knows he's not allowed.
    (like bloody/shit..damn isn't even a swear word is it?)
    Plus, they hear stuff when they get to school...

    Well, the source of the story is aol, not FoxFaith. aol is just reporting that Fox is starting this more wholesome line of movies. Not promoting it....so Paris, Willie, Kate and Lindsay are not there in relation to the FoxFaith movie group.

    imo
