The lorax offended me

In the opening music scene, they sang a verse that says " we thank The Lord for all we've got". I'm not Christian so I turned the movie off immediately. I don't want that crap crammed down my children's throats. Why can't they just leave that out of it???

    But "lord" can be symbolic for whatever you want it to be.

    When I hear things like that or participate in prayer with people of other religions I just substitute their word for mine in my mind

    I mean I'm all for each religion having their owned themed movie, but they should warn you

    How would they do that?  "Just so you know, there's a song at the beginning that mentions 'Lord'.  Watchers beware!!"  It's not like there's a religious rating on movies.

    I don't recall hearing that. We love that movie and we aren't religious. Even if it was said its not a religious based movie.

    I'm guessing you won't let your kids watch home alone because there are a few scenes in a church

    lol Oh geez...

    I'm not Christian, I'm not religious in anyway. I don't know if I even believe in God. But I still think it is REALLY stupid to get offended over something like that, and to refuse to watch a movie over it. Oh well, your loss though. It must be exhausting for you to be so easily worried about things.

    We're Pagan and yes i did catch that line but big deal. Exposing your children to others beliefs  just teaches them that everyone is different not wrong but different.
