Passion of the Christ Rating

New Zealand Association of Rationalists and Humanists (Inc)
Media Release

RE: The Society for the Promotion of Community Standards
07.4.04

Readers may not have had an opportunity to read the lengthy SPCS media release "Response To Chief Censor Bill Hastings Attack On "The Passion" Re-Rating" released Today, 7th April. Here is a summary:

Violence in films that promote Christianity = Good Violence

Violence in all other films = Bad Violence

Sex = Bad


Good Violence should be shown to everyone, including children.

Bad Violence should not be shown to anybody, including grown-ups.

Sex is disgusting.

We hope this is helpful.

The New Zealand Association of Rationalists and Humanists is the country's oldest and largest organisation representing people without religious beliefs. Its principal objectives are to advocate a rational, humane and secular view of life without reference to supernatural agencies and which is compatible with scientific method; to promote a tolerant, responsible and open society; to encourage open-minded enquiry into matters relevant to human co-existence and well-being.
