Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

So everyone says we shouldn't watch rated R movies, and I agree. But I cannot find any definitive statements concerning this from General Authorities. Does any such statement exist?

These are just a few of the numerous questions and comments about the whole rated R thing and the MPAA. If anyone brings this up again, or if they let :::Latro::: see anything about it, they will be flogged, by order of The One.

The article itself leans heavily towards the "pro-R" side, but page 4 has the only thorough compilation of statements by General Authorities that I've ever seen.

A: Dear Clubber,

I am sure one of those links above will have :::Latro:::'s reference to Orson Scott Card's article on the matter, but I am going to throw the link out again because the article is just awesome. http://www.nauvoo.com/library/card-r-rated-movie.html

I've made my thoughts on the matter quite clear. I'm not a general authority, but I am omniscient. And ridiculously good-looking.
