‘Deadpool,’ ‘Easy A,’ And More: 12 Films Condemned By The Catholic Church
When it comes to movie ratings, we are all familiar with the same letters: G, PG, PG-13, and R. These ratings serve as a notification for movie-goers so that we know the general level of maturity of the film. If the film is PG, sure, bring the kids. If it’s R, leave the kids at home.
What you may not know is that the Catholic News Service has their own set of ratings in accordance to their own beliefs and morals. They have five different ratings, consisting of A-I (general patronage), A-II (adolescents and adults), A-III (adults), L (limited adult audience), and O (morally offensive).
While an L rating states that a very small adult audience should see the film, an O rating claims that the film shouldn’t be seen at all.
