The Deadly & Deliberate “Ratings Creep” Epidemic In Hollywood
Satan Has A Bid For Your Child!
By David J. Stewart | November 2014
There is not a more evil group of people in the world than the Hollywood film gang in California. This includes Hollywood Studios, 20th Century Fox, Universal Studios, United Artists, Capitol Films, Sony, Warner Brothers, CBS, NBC, FOX and the entire film industry in Hollywood. An increasingly disturbing trend in Hollywood in recent decades has been the gradual “Ratings Creep,” gradually putting more R-rated sexual perversion and violence into so-called PG-13 films. There is no argument that this is being done deliberately to corrupt America's youth and homes. Satan is the boss of Hollywood (or we should say, UNHOLYwood).
In the recent October 2014 movie OUIJA, which is rated PG-13, the movie begins with a teenage girl wrapping a cord of Christmas lights around her neck and dropping 10 feet from the ceiling to hang herself. The scene is graphic, her neck loudly snaps, the body is hanging there. The scene is violent, disturbing and certainly nothing appropriate for adults, let alone children. Children flock with their parents to watch these films, because Hollywood advertises them as such. These types of scenes desensitize the viewer to the pain and suffering of others. The truth is that Hollywood is of the Devil, and it always has been. Jesus said that a corrupt tree cannot bring forth good fruit (Matthew 7:18). Hollywood is corrupt to the very core, saturated with pride, greed, satanism, sexual immorality, blasphemy, idolatry, homosexuality and every sin imaginable. It is blatantly obvious to any spiritually-minded Christian that Satan is intentionally targeting today's youth to corrupt them through the movie, television and music industries. Adults are being targeted too, but especially the youth.
I read a bullcrap article by contributing editor, Scott Mendelson in Forbes magazine from November 14, 2013 titled, “Blame Washington, Not Hollywood, For R-Rated Violence In PG-13 Films.” That is an irresponsible claim. That's like saying we should blame the U.S. government for street gangs and crime. Although it is in fact the fault of our elected government leaders for the deliberate deindustrialization of our nation (sending U.S. jobs to foreign soil); as well as the deliberate open-borders flooding our country with illegals (who are taking American jobs); two wrongs never make a right; there is no justification for anyone who lives in the United States to sell, buy or use illegal drugs!!! Judgment Day is coming for all men, citizens and leaders alike, Christian and unsaved alike (Ecclesiastes 12:14; Romans 14:10-12; Revelation 20:11-15; Matthew 12:36; 2nd Corinthians 5:9-11).
Hollywood is 100% to blame for the evil movies and smutty garbage that they produce. Hollywood has no one to blame but themselves!!! God will put them into the hottest parts of the Lake of Fire (Revelation 20:12-15; Isaiah 13:11).
Here is some vital information, an excellent article, about how Hollywood manipulates the ratings system to corrupt families...Ratings creep and wakeup calls

A few weeks ago we rented “The Amazing Spider-Man.” It’s PG-13, so how bad could it be? Probably suitable for our 3-, 5-, and 7-year-olds – right? Ten minutes in, an angry villain pummeled one of his enemies. The scene involves graphic, violent face punches with blood spurting from a broken nose.
Anna Jane (my 5-year-old) screamed and bawled, worse than during her 4-year-old immunizations or when our dog chewed off her Cabbage Patch Doll’s head. She hid under a blanket and refused to come out.
I, of course, felt like a superlative parent.
Good research proves that television (and video game) violence desensitizes children to the pain and suffering of others, worsens fears of the world around them, and increases aggression towards others. It’s difficult to argue for any positive effects (though some claim it is a necessary and natural part of childhood development).
My children watch different cartoons, many with some level of violence. In general, the violence seems more plentiful now than the years of “Smurfs” or “He-Man.”
While there’s certainly room for television viewing refinement in my home, my experience with Anna Jane forced me to consider how television violence specifically affects me and my children.
In the past year, I’ve enjoyed the acclaimed shows “House of Cards,” “Breaking Bad” and “Dexter.” There are multiple parts of each of these series that I’d squirm if watching with my mother (some even with my wife, Kristen).
But clearly I’m smart enough to guarantee that savage, graphic scenes don’t really affect me. I’m well-educated and self-aware, right?
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recently published a study entitled “Parental Desensitization to Violence and Sex in Movies,” which raised concern that, like children, we are easily numbed to the improprieties we view.
Participants viewed short movie clips containing scenes including sex and violence. With each subsequent viewing, participants exhibited desensitization towards violence and, subsequently, movie rating (meaning that they were willing to classify R-rated movies as PG-13). Additionally, those who frequently watched movies were more readily desensitized.
This study helps validate what researchers describe as “ratings creep,” the growing rate of violence and sex in PG-13-rated movies. Last year, researcher Dan Romer, Ph.D., published a study showing that the amount of gun violence in PG-13 movies has tripled since 1985. PG-13 movies produced in the past five years contain as much violence as R-rated movies.
In the most recent AAP study, after subsequent movie clip exposures, parents also reported an increased willingness to allow their own children to view more explicit movies.
This study suggests I not only rented “The Amazing Spider-Man” out of carelessness, but also because my conscience no longer serves as an appropriate guide.
Sadly, I’ll accept some responsibility. I only briefly contemplated what affect the adult aspects of the movie I would rent would have on my children. I was driven more by my desire to keep my three-year-old son entertained for 139 minutes.
Anna Jane’s epic reaction served as a good wake-up call.
As parents, we need to be more conscious of media, knowing that our viewing decisions subconsciously impact our children. We are not as unimpressionable as we’d hope.
In addition, to help monitor what our children watch, the media advocacy group Common Sense Media rates entertainment content and suggests appropriate usage ages. Earlier this month, the group announced it would give its own seal of approval for “family-friendly” films.
My hope is that we are all more thoughtful with viewing decisions – our children’s and our own. If not careful, you’ll end up with your five-year-old in your bed for a week due to Spider-Man nightmares – which presents a whole other host of concerns.

Most people don't realize that Homeland security has a paid liaison in Hollywood to incorporate brainwashing government propaganda into the movies. They do this to shape public opinion in favor of their Communist agendas. Literally, the CIA are using military psyops against their own U.S. citizens.
Jesus identified the Devil as a liar and a murderer from the very beginning. John 8:44, “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.” My friend, Satan is a real spirit person and he wants to destroy you and your children's life. Satan will take you to Hell with him if you let him. The Lord warned us that Satan is a thief whose only intend is to kill, steal and destroy people's lives. John 10:10, “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”
