Movieguide Warns Sexual Revolution Leading Us To Nazi Military Takeover Just Like In Captain America

Movieguide, a website that judges the “moral worldview” of Hollywood movies for a Christian conservative audience, warns today that dystopian scenarios in films like The Lego Movie and Captain America are not so far-fetched because the “sexual revolution” is leading to a “financial collapse of epic proportions” which will cause “chaos” and open the door for a Nazi-style military takeover of the country.

“Your family’s survival may be at stake,” warn Movieguide’s production editor David Outten and publisher Ted Baehr in a blog post circulated by WorldNetDaily. “Batman, Iron Man and Spider-Man won’t be coming to your rescue.”

Outten and Baehr conclude that the only way to fend off a real-life sci-fi movie disaster is for viewers to “vote with your remote for traditional values” and reject entertainment that promotes the “sexual revolution.”

Reports have come out that a 2010 Pentagon directive details how United States military forces can be deployed against United States citizens in the case of emergencies – as authorized by the President.

This scenario is in many movies, including the top two movies so far this year, THE LEGO MOVIE and CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER. It’s only logical that some of the horrible disasters presented in Science Fiction and Fantasy movies (the two most popular movie genres today) would require every possible form of military, police and superhero involvement to restore a civil society. The interventions are not always against some alien invader. Viruses and domestic superthugs have been used as reasons for intervention.

Conservatives mad that such a Pentagon directive exists aren’t being realistic. Nearly $18 trillion of federal debt and 151 million Americans receiving some form of government assistance is a recipe for financial collapse of epic proportions.

American lifestyles are sustained by the free enterprise system. Make the dollar worthless or end all government payments, and it’s predictable that families will have to do bizarre things to survive – even for just one week. The possibility of chaos is very real. If local police are unable to maintain public safety, U.S. military intervention probably would be welcomed by most uninformed citizens, just as it was in National Socialist (NAZI) Germany.

Ask yourself, “Why are we in such great danger?” The answer is the sexual revolution. The demise of marriage and the traditional family has resulted in massive spending on welfare, crime and prisons. America is losing the war on poverty because we’ve waged war on the family.

Traditional families are the taxpaying backbone of America. We won’t be able to cut spending and raise more tax revenues unless we have fewer dependents and more taxpayers.

Every choice you make with your TV remote or iPad is a vote for or against the cultural revolution kicked off in the 1960s. When you vote for a more moral society that honors marriage and the traditional family, you are voting to bring the federal budget in balance and reduce the need for domestic military intervention. Every time you vote against traditional values, or for libertine values, you encourage more federal debt and a greater threat of military intervention.

Movies last for two hours and the crisis they portray gets replayed for the next audience. You get to go home, open your refrigerator, and get a drink of your choice. If you wish, you can stop at the grocery store on the way home and buy a loaf of bread. Hollywood is leading us to a disaster that changes that. Our infrastructure is not designed for worthless money, power outages, gas shortages and empty grocery stores. People may try to break in your windows if they think you have food. Your family’s survival may be at stake. Batman, Iron Man and Spider-Man won’t be coming to your rescue. You may want military intervention.

If you think such a real life disaster is undesirable, vote with your remote for traditional values. Pray that America can change fast enough to avoid the looming disaster.

'Anti-Christian Bigotry In The Mass Media' Is To Blame For Elliot Rodger's Murder Spree

In a piece published today on the Charisma website, Tom Snyder and Ted Baehr of Movieguide assert that the real cause of Elliot Rodger's murder spree was anti-Christian bigotry within the media.

As Snyder and Baehr see it, Hollywood and television have systemically promoted an "anti-Christian, unbiblical view of sexual morality" through a "pagan ideology" that is "overtly antagonistic" to Christianity and which has turned people away from God and into "narcissistic monsters."

As a result, "this anti-Christian bigotry in the mass media has created a culture of anti-Christian bigotry and atheist advocacy" which, in turn, results in mass murder:

In his manifesto, he expresses rage against "beautiful" men and women who get all the sex partners they want, while he, at 22, still remains a virgin. He says his upcoming murder spree is a "day of retribution" against these people and against society.

Where did this young murderer get his narcissistic views about sex?

Well, for decades, the mass media—not only through thousands of books and movies, but also through the national "news" media and popular music—has been promoting the so-called "Sexual Revolution," an anti-Christian, unbiblical view of sexual morality.

This pagan ideology has undermined the institutions of marriage and the family, along with the moral fabric of the United States and many other countries.

In that light, it's important to note also that the mass media too often not only has been apathetic but also overtly antagonistic toward religion, especially Christianity and those of us who believe in the Bible.

This anti-Christian bigotry in the mass media has created a culture of anti-Christian bigotry and atheist advocacy.

Thus, one thing that stands out like a sore thumb in the life of all of the murderers mentioned above is the lack of religious training and spiritual expression in their lives. Instead of nurturing a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ, all of these murderers seem obsessed by their own hedonistic pursuits.

Without God, and the salvation that comes through Jesus Christ, by the power of the Holy Spirit, people become narcissistic monsters looking for the next victim they can devour.

The solution to this is the gospel of Jesus Christ. Spreading that gospel is the best way to stop further media terrorism like what happened Friday night.

Movieguide: Hunger Games No Longer Gay Nazi Flick, OK To See

Last year, the Religious Right group Movieguide was hysterical about the supposed dangers of The Hunger Games, fearing that the book and film series promote homosexuality and glorify dictators like Adolf Hitler.

At The Awakening 2012, Movieguide head Ted Beahr repeatedly attacked The Hunger Games, blasting parents who brought their children to see the series’ first film for “corrupting your children” with “death and humanism and evil.” Beahr also linked The Hunger Games to promiscuous sex and abortion.

But today, Movieguide announced that the second installment in the movie trilogy, Catching Fire, “has a strong moral worldview” and even posted an interview with stars Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson discussing the film’s “moral lessons.”

  • It looks like Joseph Farah's "9/11 National Day of Prayer and Repentance" is going to be an annual thing.
  • Tony Perkins continues to blame the SPLC for last year's shooting at FRC headquarters.
  • Ted Baehr knows how to stop mass shooting like the one this week at the Navy Yard: "We must end the arbitrary judicial bans on religious and moral teaching in our schools that deprive America’s children of the Ten Commandments that God gave Moses and the Hebrew people on Mount Sinai and the teachings that Jesus Christ gave his disciples in the Sermon on the Mount in Chapters Five through Seven of the Gospel of Matthew and in Chapters 13 through 17 of the Gospel of John."
  • Speaking of the Navy Yard shooting, Rob Schenck says it turned out to be a good opportunity for him to spread the Gospel: "What had begun as a horrible tragedy became a wonderful opportunity to show the love of God, to turn attention to our only true source of help in times of desperation, and to point hearts and minds to the only Savior of humankind."
  • Finally, Matt Barber says President Obama is "creating a constitutional crisis here because he is violating the Constitution" by letting gay couples take advantage of federal benefits.

Ted Baehr: Gay Marriage Supporters Creating Tyranny and 'Are Subject to Indictment, Trial and Just Punishment'

Adding to the list of off-the-wall reactions to the Supreme Court’s decisions on two same-sex marriage cases, Religious Right activist Ted Baehr of Movieguide released a statement demanding that all officials who back marriage equality be “subject to indictment, trial and just punishment.”

He claimed that same-sex marriage is part of a Marxist plan to “abolish marriage and the family” and may one day allow dictators like Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin to rise to power in America.

“The Supreme Court’s decision today is absolutely criminal,” according to Baehr, arguing that neither the government nor voters “have the right to legalize same-sex marriage,” as it violates “God’s law” and the First Amendment’s protection of “the freedom to worship.”

“Neither the court, the state, the president, the Congress, nor even the voters have the right to legalize same-sex marriage,” Baehr says. “It violates the First Amendment of the United States Constitution, which states that Congress can’t deny anyone the freedom to worship.



Baehr notes that the idea to abolish marriage and the family comes from The Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx and Frederich Engels, which produced such mass-murdering tyrants as Lenin, Stalin, Mao Tse Tung and Castro.

Thus, the Declaration of Independence made it clear that King George III acted illegally when he oppressed the American colonies, because he was under the law of God. Countries that allowed men to rule above the law have produced tyrants, such as Stalin, Hitler and Mao Tse Tung. Current examples include Mugabwe, Castro and the military junta in Burma, among many others. Baehr condemns the idea spread by “misguided, mendacious” proponents of same-sex marriage that the traditional definition of marriage and family in the Bible is outdated or oppressive.

“A bad heterosexual marriage or a bad family doesn’t give us the right to abolish marriage and family or to change their definitions,” Baehr says.

“The Supreme Court’s decision today is absolutely criminal,” he explains. “Our local, state and federal governments, along with the courts, have created most of the alleged problems we see in many marriages and families today because they have accepted a radical Marxist, communist definition of taxation, culture, and government.



“We need to stand for God’s law in the face of the power-grab by those in civil authority who know no restraints.

“The increasingly socialized federal government does not have the right nor the authority to violate God’s law; they have also violated their own Constitution and the will of the governed. When they do that, they are just like King George. They have abdicated their moral and legal authority and are subject to indictment, trial and just punishment.

  • Conservative judicial icon Robert Bork died today at the age of 85.
  • Mat Staver says Bork would have made an excellent Supreme Court Justice who would have overturned Roe v Wade, if only Joe Biden and Ted Kennedy had not been "so mean" to him.
  • Buster Wilson really does not seem to appreciate our efforts to help him spread his message.
  • We can only hope that, at some point, VA Rep. Bob Marshall's district will grow tired of being a laughingstock and stop electing him.
  • Finally, Ted Baehr and Tom Snyder explain why the Sandy Hook tragedy happened: "By removing God, the Bible, God's Law, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit from society, including the mass media and the schools, we are raising generations of people with no faith in God or Jesus and, hence, no moral conscience, and no self-control. If so many people have no faith, no moral conscience and no self-control, then it’s no wonder our society is suffering from all these mass murders by evil lone gunmen."

Movieguide Warns 'The Hunger Games' Will Lead to an American Hitler, Has 'Homosexual and Cross-Dressing Implications'

The Religious Right’s go-to movie review group, Movieguide, is not happy with The Hunger Games. Movieguide, a website dedicated to offering “in-depth analyses of current movies from a biblical perspective,” is also politically active. At May Day 2010, for instance, its president Ted Baehr urged conservative Christians to take the societal “mountain of arts and entertainment” and insisted that in order to reverse the “homosexualization of the culture,” politicians who support marriage equality should be tried and punished.

In its review of The Hunger Games, Movieguide wasn’t just upset about the violence in the PG-13 film but also worried about its “homosexual and cross-dressing implications” and characters who act “effeminately.” The group seems to completely miss the movie’s messages about societal oppression and how people can become desensitized to violence, even claiming that the dictatorship at the center of the film is not rebuked “strongly enough”:

Strong but not extremely explicit or very overt humanist worldview with some Romantic elements, plus light moral elements such as protagonist protects her younger sister, some strong elements suggesting opposition to totalitarian dictatorship, and some homosexual and cross-dressing implications where men in a large city wear makeup and gaudy outfits and a minor character acts effeminately; three profanities and five obscenities; very strong violence includes children kill children with knives, swords, bows and arrows, not always shown but with blood implied, girl is burned, youngest child is killed by bow stabbing right through her, adults get into fights and destroy buildings, mutated dogs eat boy, girl beaten against wall, and girls fight and one gets slashed on cheek; no sex scenes but some kissing and kissing on cheek, plus some homosexual cross-dressing where men of large city are in makeup and gaudy outfits; no nudity; drinking and drunkenness; no smoking or drugs, but bug stings girl and she hallucinates for two days; and, dysfunctional family implied as mother has left children and father is not alive, lying, mentor for children is an alcoholic, government plays propaganda, and a dictatorship but it’s implicitly rebuked though not strongly enough.

Movieguide’s David Outten and Tom Snyder go on to maintain that the movie and book trilogy will lead to school shootings. Warning that the movie “rejects” and “neglects America’s Christian heritage,” Outten and Snyder say the film will exacerbate America’s cultural degradation. The popularity of The Hunger Games, they write, could even make “a tyrannical leader like Nero or Hitler” become “a distinct possibility for the land of the free and the home of the brave”:

Are there really millions of Americans hungry to watch a movie where children fight each other to the death? Yes, it’s a movie. The actors who “die” in the movie actually get paid and live to make more movies. Even so, the spectacle is still all about children being forced to kill one another.

Is that what we want school children discussing over lunch? Children killing each other?

Few children who buy tickets to THE HUNGER GAMES will ever kill anyone, but it only takes a few. Horror stories of school killings, including a recent event in a Cleveland, Ohio school, often reveal similarities to movies the killers enjoyed.



What Americans need to realize is that the values that keep the rulers of the United States from doing things like forcing children to fight each other to the death are Christian values. The values that ended the death matches in Rome were Christian values. The values that ended slavery in England were Christian values. And, the values that should be crying out against such violence in movies like THE HUNGER GAMES are Christian values.



America has long been on the road to rejecting the Christian, biblical values that made republican virtues, hard work, capitalist progress, and liberty a beacon of light to a dying, hurting world.

Consequently, our culture, including the mass media that creates our culture, is filled with misguided leaders who want to completely change God’s definition of marriage, make pornography available to children or at least teenagers, keep every teenager constantly supplied with boxes of condoms, and steal money from the taxpayers to re-distribute that hard-earned money to freeloaders, loons, rich union goons, and radical activists.

THE HUNGER GAMES is supposed to be mere fantasy, but it seems like part of the problem. If one of the biggest movies of the year so far rejects or neglects America’s Christian heritage, then maybe a tyrannical leader like Nero or Hitler has indeed become a distinct possibility for the land of the free and the home of the brave.
