According
to a study by the Dove Foundation, as reported by the Associated Press, G-rated
movies are more profitable than R-rated films. The study showed that the average
G-rated movie was 11 times more profitable than the average R-rated movie. The
film industry has yet to take notice since they make more than 12 times more
R-rated movies. The study encompassed the 200 most widely distributed films
released by major studios in a fifteen year period. The average G-rated movie
earned $79 million dollars, while the average R-rated movie made $6.9 million.

Weatherhead used to ask his audience to imagine walking in a beautiful garden.
It has beautiful trees, a rock garden and a pond. But, we notice that it is locked
at night. There are iron railings around it. There are signs that say, “Don’t
pick the flowers,” and “Please do not walk on the grass.” At first
we would be frustrated. What is the point? Why all the restrictions. Weatherhead’s
answer: “Without them there would soon be no park for anyone.” God’s
rules are not to bring grimness to life, but to allow true beauty to grow.
