Brave-Movie

Movieguide says that the movie attacks marriage and people should contact the producers complaining about the movie.

From movieguide.org:

BRAVE has a strong Romantic, feminist worldview about following your heart first rather than God’s Kingdom or God’s Righteousness. Merida fights to create her own destiny, rather than do what is right. She also lets spirits guide her actions, which is occult. As God warns in Deuteronomy 18:10,11:

“Let no one be found among you who sacrifices his son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead.”

Thus, MOVIEGUIDE® advises strong caution regarding BRAVE. For full review click here.

For article about how the film attacks marriage published on movieguide.org click here.

Action: Movieguide says that the action steps that parents need to take is to be careful about letting their daughters and sons be infected by the messages of BRAVE, and to contact Walt Disney Company and Pixar and ask them to be more careful about their productions for children.

Here are the people and addresses for Disney and Pixar:

Robert Iger, President/CEO, The Walt Disney Company

Alan Horn, Chairman, Walt Disney Studios

John Lasseter, Chief Creative Officer, Walt Disney Animation

500 South Buena Vista Street
Burbank, CA  91521
