The war within
September 20, 2017 9:10am CST
This is a name of a movie. It is about a man, his wife and their daughter. Their daughter died in a car accident. They were both in car when their daughter wanted her mother to see a story book about Jesus. The father was arguing with her mother and no one was paying attention to the child's requests. That is how they got in a car accident. The movie focuses on the war in the man's head because he feels that his daughter died because of him. Well, that is not my point. I have watched the movie twice. The second time I watched the movie I noticed the name God and Jesus were censored. The actors could talk but you can't hear those two names when in their conversation. The TV goes silent at that part and I was wondering why. Do you know any reasons as to why some words are always censored?

I also felt the same way. I expected abusive words to be censored only but in this case it was different. My brother told me that maybe many people complained about the movie and that is why we can't hear the actors say God and Jesus when they start talking about the bible

They censor the word "God" in almost all the movies in my country, they even blank out the word on all the written interpretations on the T.V screen. I used to wonder why they do such until someone told me that the name is too big and powerful to be used anyhow by people all for the sake of acting. So I guess they are very respective of the name "God" that's why it's been censored.

Yeah. I never noticed anything wrong in what they said but coming to think of it, a person named "fear' in the mind of the main actor used to be against the right thing. I'm not sure who cursed the Holy name since I rarely pay attention to every word.
