Flight diverted after family raises concerns over PG-13 inflight movie
A family's criticism of inflight entertainment allegedly prompted a United flight to be diverted over "security concerns."
In a story published in The Atlantic, one family recounts traveling from Denver to Baltimore with two young sons, ages 4 and 8. During the flight, the PG-13-rated detective film "Alex Cross" was shown on drop-down monitors across the plane.
The family worried about their young children seeing inappropriate content in the film.
"Alarmed by the opening scenes, we asked two flight attendants if they could turn off the monitor; both claimed it was not possible," the family said, according to The Atlantic.
Absolutely despicable of United to feel that they can usurp the authority of the parents and just take over.
Why have a rating system when there's no choice in the matter?
In a situation like this there's not much a parent can do. They are stuck in a plane. Their objections will either be shrugged off, or if United feels inconvenienced by the objections, then the parents are labeled a "disturbance".
Who is wronged here? Clearly, it is United that IS ON the wrong here. Just on the strength of a rating system alone - a cautionary advisory put out by a very liberal panel who is judging a very millitant pro-gay Hollywood. I don't want to argue on the strength of the rating system but since United swims in the same cesspool, it stands condemned.
If more Christians would stand up, not in civil disobedience, but peacefully an respectfully oiling their concerns our nation wouldn't be where it is today. People do not respect Christianity today because in this country it has become a religion, filled with words but no action. May The Lord help us all!
