Movieguide: Bringing so-called "movie reviews" with so-called "high biblical standards" to FOX News

Here’s the breaking news about Movieguide

And here’s a link to my recent post that should be more than sufficient in explaining why this is awful news.

It’s bad enough that “Christian” and “Biblical standards” will now be even more directly linked with the right-wing-extremist bias of FOX News. But it’s a heavy blow to those of us who are Christians who are pursuing a thoughtful, intelligent engagement with the art of cinema, because now America will have even more reason to believe that Christians who talk about movies are interested in judgmentalism and cultural condemnation rather than beauty and art.
