"The Blind Side" gets the boot
Comes now an interesting story about the inspirational 2009 movie “The Blind Side.”
You know the one that features actress Sandra Bullock as Leigh Anne Tuohy, who, with her husband Sean, adopted Michael Oher, a poor teen who went on to become a collegiate football player and NFL player. I met the Tuohys, by the way, when they visited Oklahoma City in June 2011 for the Arrow Child & Family Ministries Ambassadors luncheon and they were very nice and, well, inspirational.
Lifeway Christian Resources, affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention, has apparently decided to take “The Blind Side” movie videos off Lifeway Christian Store shelves. A Baptist pastor is saying that it contains a racial slur and profanity. The movie, which is PG-13, may be brought up at next week’s Southern Baptist Convention annual meeting in New Orleans, La., through a resolution submitted by the pastor, a Florida minister, who brought up these same concerns at an SBC meeting several years ago.
