Hollywood announced today that their current movie-ratings system would be scrapped and replaced with a "What would Jesus watch?" rating structure. Critics of the current system complain it is too secretive, inconsistent, and no longer uses the cool X rating.

According to Dan Glickman, who heads the Motion Picture Association of America that runs the ratings system, the new system would indicate whether Jesus gives thumbs up or down.

The current system has the familiar NC-17, R, PG-13, PG or G ratings. There is also the F-BN (Fun But Nasty) rating which is used only rarely.

Ratings critics include conservatives who say Hollywood in general is out of touch with mainstream values. Movie studios hope that getting Divine movie reviews will silence critics as well as keep the masses coming to see Saw XXIII.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
