the reliant kevin sorbo rated r

A new movie called The Reliant that features no profanity, nudity, torture or extreme violence just received an R rating by the Motion Picture Association of America. Why? No one knows for sure–except the fact that it’s a Christian movie that is pro-Second Amendment.

Is this yet another case of liberal Hollywood being biased against conservatives?

The producer, Dr. J.P. Johnston, started an Indiegogo fundraising page to get support to “fight the MPAA’s ridiculously unfair R rating.” Johnston, notes that “there’s no obscenity, no sexuality, no gore, and no horror in this movie.”

The film stars Kevin Sorbo of Hercules fame, former NFL star turned actor Brian Bosworth, Eric Roberts, and Mollee Gray.

“A deliberate attempt to sabotage” a pro-Second Amendment movie

The Christian Post reports, “According to the synopsis, the film takes place during an economic collapse that “precipitates widespread rioting and looting, forcing a 21-year-old lovesick girl to care for siblings in a stretch of woods bordered by lawless anarchy, wondering why a good God would let this happen.”

“There’s realistic suspense and combat, and perilous situations where civilians are attempting to defend themselves, but, thanks to careful counseling from experienced filmmakers, we remained vigilant to stay well below the level of violence that would be categorized as ‘R.'”

Producer Johnston did not hold back in explaining why he thought his movie received an R-rating, calling it “a deliberate attempt to sabotage” the pro-Second Amendment film. He said it was always intended for  “lovers of faith-based movies and meaningful, family-friendly entertainment.”

Pro-Second Amendment advocates have backed-up Johnston’s claim.

“Tim Schmidt, the CEO of the U.S. Concealed Carry Association and executive producer of ‘The Reliant,’ also described the film as ‘family friendly,” The Christian Post observed.

“It seems the MPAA gave ‘The Reliant’ an R-rating due to their discomfort with how the movie depicts the responsible use of a firearm by a pre-teen boy. This boy saved the innocent lives of his own family members! It just doesn’t make sense to me,” Schmidt said, according to Laconia Daily Sun.”

This is not the first time a movie featuring actor Kevin Sorbo has received a rating from the MPAA that many believe reflect more on the politics of liberal Hollywood than the film’s actual content.

If you’re a conservative, Christian, or gun rights advocate, go see The Reliant. It’s family friendly despite what liberals say, not to mention…

… aren’t you tired of everything – especially entertainment – being dictated by what liberals say?
