The movie is about God, but Disney has decided to remove all references to God from the ads for the movie, “The Ten Commandments.”
Radio Disney was to broadcast a radio spot for Promenade Pictures, makers of the film “The Ten Commandments,” but the company sent an e-mail earlier this month instructing that the phrase “chosen by God” be stripped from the script.
“Our BS&P [Broadcast Standards and Procedures] said both scripts need to include the studio mention and omit the following line: CHOSEN BY GOD…. Please let me know if you have any questions,” reads the e-mail, sent Oct. 2 to Promenade media buyer Casey Baker by Radio Disney Network sales associate Jason Atkinson.
“In connection with the Ten Commandments, I did find it offensive,” said Promenade president and Chief Operating Officer Cindy Bond. “God in our movie is the main character. You rip the whole guts out of the piece.”
Liberty Counsel quickly stepped up and has petitioned to reconsider its position given the nature of the film and its target audience of families.
Liberty Counsel is launching a petition drive to ask Radio Disney to stop its ridiculous censorship of the word “God.” On its website, Radio Disney promotes other movies with references to mythical gods, Tiki gods, Navaho gods and animal gods. Radio Disney claims to be the “ultimate music environment for kids and families.” Their actions offends families who believe that Moses was chosen by the God of the Bible.
