A church in Texas feels that the Motion Picture Association of America film rating board gave its new film a hard "R" rating not because the film is unsuitable for minors but because the board is anti-Christian. The pastor of the church that sponsored My Son and footed the $25,000 production costs, Chuck Kitchens--who is also listed as an executive producer--told Fox News' Todd Starnes that he was surprised by the MPAA rating. "I was very shocked. It makes me sick at my stomach," he said. Pastor Kitchens feels that members of the film board are against his film because they oppose its Christian message.
