HOLLYWOOD, CA (ANS – Feb. 13, 2015) -- I want to tell you today about something that is very close and important to my heart. I’m a member of the Board of Reference for MOVIEGUIDE® because I believe that Hollywood has a tremendous impact on the lives of our young people. They are standing strong to let the message of Christ be heard in Hollywood.
The battle for the hearts and minds of the next generation has never been more important than now and that battle is taking place at movie theaters and on your TV. Everyone agrees that media has an immense influence on the way we think, act and even believe, yet, much of what is produced and praised in Hollywood attacks our core values of faith, family and freedom. But we can make a difference!
How can we ensure that our young people are being influenced positively through media? The answer is simple…
* WATCH… on February 21st 4pm PST/7pm EST the 23rd Annual Movieguide Awards airing on the Reelz Channel. Find out where to watch on your cable or satellite system here: http://www.reelz.com
* COMMENT… Go to REELZChannel’s Facebook page and state that you support Movieguide’s mission and will watch on February 21st: https://www.facebook.com/ReelzChannel
* PRAY and INVITE… Keep the telecast in your prayers, share the information through your social media accounts, and perhaps invite someone over to watch along with you!
By watching, commenting, praying, and inviting, you and your family are making a statement. A statement that you are tired of the violence, tired of lewd content and vulgar language, tired of seeing your values attacked at the movie theater. Help us remind Hollywood that America is made up of families that want to be uplifted and inspired by wholesome entertainment.
On February 21st, let’s thank those in Hollywood who have given us inspirational entertainment and let’s encourage them to continue for the sake of our children and the generations to come. We can change Hollywood with your help!
