Millions look to “Movieguide” (www.movieguide.org) as a trusted Cristian values resource in selecting the movies that they see. In this time of anytime radio with longtime friend Dr. Ted Baehr, Ted “wowed” me with his report that Movieguide receives 34,000,000 to 36,000,000 in depth searches … more extensive than just “hits” … each month! That averages to more than one million … every day!
He has spent years documenting and reporting to movie producers and decision makers that “G” rated movies make more money than the dirty and evil ones. The result? Now there are notably more “G” rated than “R” rated movies being produced!.
Ted used the word “revival” – in a spiritual sense — in aspects of the entertainment world that is happening now. That explanation will need to be in an upcoming radio conversation with him.
