An expert with a pro-family group that serves as a watchdog for graphic content in entertainment media does not believe the recently announced changes to the MPAA's ratings system offer anything new.
Dan Isett, director of public policy for the Parents Television Council, told The Christian Post that while the decision was a "step in the right direction" it did not go far enough.
"Certainly anytime there is more information for parents it's a good thing. There's nothing to criticize about that," said Isett. more >>
Executive Producer of the History Channel's "The Bible" miniseries Scott Sassa was booted from his $6 million job by conservative heads at media giant Hearst Corporation last month after they got wind of his racy text exchange negotiating a drug-filled $1,000 sexual encounter with a teenage escort last Christmas.
Sources speaking with the Business Insider have since suggested that Sassa, 54, could also have been the victim of a "catfish" scam of Manti Te'o proportions.
While millions of Christians were busy experiencing the epic stories of "The Bible" unfold on the small screen in March when "The Bible" series was being aired, however, the New York Post was breaking the scandal on Hearst's former president of entertainment and syndication. According to the report, the 18-year-old escort was texting Sassa "sexy pictures, and he was responding using words you absolutely would not want your bosses to see." more >>
Christian psychologist and author Dr. John Townsend, an expert on Christ-centered recovery for mental and emotional health issues, will be speaking at Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, Calif., for all five worship services this weekend, just a little more than a week since the death of Pastor Rick Warren's son, Matthew.
Townsend told The Christian Post in an exclusive interview on Friday that he had already been asked to speak at Saddleback prior to the tragedy in order to talk about an upcoming feature-length movie that includes the church's Celebrate Recovery program as part of the film's story. He said he now plans to include some of his thoughts about what the Warren family is going through.
Matthew Warren's death was ruled a suicide by a self-inflicted gunshot wound occurring on Friday, April 5. He was 27-years-old. more >>
Dove Award-winning and Grammy nominated singer Kari Jobe said she decided to endorse the movie "Not Today," that opens this weekend, with a song because of her passion to fight human trafficking – ministry work that she has been involved with for the last six years.
"It's just an evil, evil situation going on with human trafficking," Jobe told The Christian Post. "A lot of people think it's just happening in other countries but there's a lot going on in America as well."
Producers of "Not Today" are hoping to raise awareness about sex slavery, one of the most critical problems in society today. Today, there are more slaves than at any other time in human history. Roughly 27 million slaves around the world are being exploited for manual and sexual labor against their will. Women and children are the primary victims in this industry, which is estimated to make profits of over $32 billion. more >>

Baseball fans and movie fanatics alike have something to celebrate this Friday with the release of the new film "42."
Aptly titled after the athlete's jersey number, the film is based on the true story of Jackie Robinson, the first African-American to join Major League Baseball. He became a player for the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947. In honor of Robinson, the number 42 jersey became the first number ever to become retired in MLB history.
Furthermore, each year on April 15, every MLB player on every MLB team dons the distinctive number in remembrance of Robinson. more >>
