Christian Long Distance

Viewed on Home DVD

The film is prefaced with "This film includes subject matter that some may find inappropriate for their younger children. Parental guidance is encouraged." I agree for the reasons presented in this report.

This film is not "Friday night entertainment." It is documentation of findings made by filmmaker Colin Gunn and his family and crew.

"This is a story of our children. This is a story of the big yellow bus. This is the story of indoctrination." Those three sentences fairly well identify the scope and purpose of the film. Several paths and systems used by the public schools to reject God from the classroom are revealed. With the rejecting of God from the schools comes rejecting of wholesome moral standards such as sexual purity.

Filmmaker Colin Gunn travels the US with his wife Emily and seven kids visiting many schools and other facilities across the country to interview their staffs for answers to questions such as:

o Who established the American public school system?
o Are my kids physically and morally safe in public schools?
o Are public schools religiously neutral?
o Should Christians try to be "salt and light" in public schools?
o Can the public school system be fixed or redeemed?

Or should we withdraw our kids from public schools and homeschool them or leave them in the system and try to make it better? After all, there is no Constitutional authority for the Federal government to control the education of our children. President Ronald Reagan even tried to dissolve the Federal Department of Education.

Colin records interviews with whistle blowers of school staffs, a number of students, parents and educational professionals and experts. Gunn has assembled a sobering fabric of challenge for the public school system to clean up their act. A great and quite likely unanswerable question is must the majority believers suffer for the sake of the minority non-believers: must the majority succumb to the wishes of the minority?


Following are brief discussions of the content per individual content investigation area. As always the Findings section of this report, the heart of the CAP Analysis Model, is the best source for discovering the full accounting of the content of this film.

Wanton Violence/Crime (W) - 84 out of 100
A security camera clip is used to present a brutal elementary school beating. Newscasts report of rape and suicides. An interview with a student reports on the student seeing a firearm on the school bus.

While the intent in showing the beating video is to impart the heinous properties of such violence, God warns in Proverb 16:29 that violence is enticing, that violence can led one into the path that is not good. And four professional public health agencies jointly published that violence onscreen can, among other things, lead the observer, especially youth to real life violence.

Impudence/Hate (I) - 80 out of 100
Gunn reveals school affronts to parents. One school would not allow parents to prohibit the school from giving their kids condoms and other schools practice academic fraud [Prov. 20:17]. Several scenes are presented of children being led to embrace the homosexual lifestyle without parental knowledge or approval, likely before the kids can even spell it. Definitely before they should be getting "sexual" anything.

Sexual Immorality (S) - 44 out of 100
Here is where the strongest content was found. Though there are no acts of sexual immorality and no nudity in the film, many reports of sexually immoral programs and behaviors are presented. A student tells of learning of sexual sin from an abstinence program. A newscast reports more than half of school kids have had immoral sex, many without condoms. Another student reports that four of her classmates are pregnant. Another newscast reports a school providing condoms to high school and elementary school students. Gunn also finds reports of teachers condoning the chosen practice of homosexuality in the classroom and programs to normalize the practice of homosexuality.

It is important for the parent to realize that for some children onscreen references to sexually immoral behaviors can embolden them to "try it for themselves." [Eph 5:12] There is more to the content applicable to this content investigation area and I ask that you inspect the listing in the Findings/Scoring section for a full accounting of them.

Drugs/Alcohol (D) - 87 out of 100
Again one must realize that onscreen references to illegal drug and alcohol abuse can embolden some to experiment with them. Gunn finds that drug abuse is nearly rampant in most public schools. He even presents scenes of illegal drugs from police evidence.

Offense to God (O) - 87 out of 100
Gunn finds that most Christian high school graduates reject their faith in Jesus. Gunn exposes reports of teachers and other school staff being fired or suffering other action against them for even speaking the name of Jesus to the students. [Luke 6:22]

Murder/Suicide (M) - 90 out of 100
While there is no murder portrayed in this film, a real murder victim is displayed. Gunn interviews the father of one of the Columbine victims culminating with a scene of his dead son on the school sidewalk beside a puddle of his son's blood. Gunn also finds reports of murder by abortion in middle school.

  • Prov. 16:29 A violent man enticeth his neighbour, and leadeth him into the way that is not good. [The issue is the violence, the 'way that is not good' no matter how "small" or "fantasy" or "justified" the violence might seem, and its "leading" effect on the observer. "A violent man" can be any character of any age, any gender, human or not in the act of committing violent behavior/action whether for good or evil OR the violent behaviors/actions themselves. Such exposure can and does embolden the viewer into aggression, especially youth. It took years for the American professional health community to finally affirm, probably without knowing it, that which God told us in 1 Cor. 15:33 below.]
  • Prov. 20:17 Food gained by fraud tastes sweet to a man, but he ends up with a mouth full of gravel. [It doesn't have to be "food" but can be anything of gain, profit or advantage.]
  • Eph. 5:12 For it is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret.
  • Luke 6:22 Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake.

    Selected Scriptures of Armour against the influence of the entertainment industry

  • Jer. 37:9 - 10 This is what the LORD says: Do not deceive yourselves, thinking, 'The Babylonians [the destroyers from within] will surely leave us.' They will not! Even if you were to defeat the entire Babylonian army that is attacking you and only wounded men were left in their tents, they would come out and burn this city down. [The "destroyers form within" do not have to be army warriors. They can be the ones who destroy through corruption of moral standards as well, such as filmmakers who perpetuate desensitization against wholesome standards. They aren't going anywhere, folks. Not until Jesus comes again.]
  • Ps. 12:8 The wicked freely strut about when what is vile is honored among men [when enough people continue to defend what is vile, embrace it, enjoy it, want it, submit to it.]
  • Col. 2:8 Beware lest any man [by his influence] spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
  • 1 Cor. 15:33 Be not deceived: evil [kakov: of a bad nature, not such as it ought to be] communications corrupt good manners.
  • Rom. 5:19 For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.
  • Jude 1:4 For there are certain men* crept in unawares [secretly slipped in among us], who were before of old ordained to this condemnation [whose condemnation was written about long ago], ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness [a license for immorality], and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ. [*men: anthropos {anth'-ro-pos}, generic, a human being, whether male or female]
  • Matt. 25:40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
  • Luke 17:2 It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. [Offend: skandalizo {skan-dal-id'-zo} - scandalize, to entice to sin. And remember, mom/dad, "little ones" is mikros, meaning less by birth; younger. All of your children are younger than you and less by birth than you. So, "little ones" includes at-home teens.]
  • Ps. 119:133 Order my steps in thy word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me [let no sin rule over me].
  • John 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.
  • 1 Thess. 5:22 Abstain from all appearance of evil. ["Evil" includes all things that are sinful.]


    As always, it is best to refer to the Findings/Scoring section -- the heart of the CAP analysis model -- for the most complete assessment possible of this movie.

    There are some in the entertainment industry who maintain that 1) violent programming is harmless because no studies exist that prove a connection between violent entertainment and aggressive behavior in children, and 2) young people know that television, movies, and video games are simply fantasy. Unfortunately, they are wrong on both accounts." And "Viewing violence may lead to real life violence." I applaud these associations for fortifying 1 Cor. 15:33. Read the rest of the story. From our years of study, I contend that other aberrant behaviors, attitudes, and expressions can be inserted in place of "violence" in that statement. Our Director - Child Psychology Support, a licensed psychologist and certified school psychologist concurs. For example, "Viewing arrogance against fair authority may lead to your kids defying you in real life." Or "Viewing sex may lead to sex in real life." Likewise and especially with impudence, hate and foul language. I further contend that any positive behavior can be inserted in place of "violence" with the same chance or likelihood of being a behavior template for the observer; of being incorporated into the behavior mechanics and/or coping skills of the observer. In choosing your entertainment, please consider carefully the "rest of the story" and our findings.

    * CAP Equivalence to MPAA Rating Scale:
    Please note our new manner of indicating a film's Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) rating in comparison with the CAP equivalence such as "PG-13 [R-13]." The first term is the Motion Picture Association of America's (MPAA) rating. The second term [in brackets] indicates that which the film earned under the CAP analysis model. In the example, "PG-13 [R-13]" indicates the MPAA rated the film PG-13 but the film earned a CAP final score in the scoring range earned by R-rated movies in the comparative baseline database. Other comparative terms used might be "PG [13-PG]", "G [PG-G] or even 'PG-13 [PG]" as was the case for Alien vs Predator. I doubt there will ever be a "G [R]" used, but only time will tell. The CAP analysis model is Rock-solid. The MPAA is not.

    The current CAP to MPAA** nomenclature is:

    For G rated Films with
    G equivalence: G
    PG equivalence: PG-G
    PG-13 equivalence: 13-G
    R equivalence: R-G<
    For PG rated Films with
    G equivalence: G-PG
    PG equivalence: PG
    PG-13 equivalence: 13-PG
    R equivalence: R-PG
    For PG-13 rated Films with
    G equivalence: G-13
    PG equivalence: PG(13)
    PG-13 equivalence: PG-13
    R equivalence: R-13
    For R rated Films with
    G equivalence: G-R
    PG equivalence: PG-R
    PG-13 equivalence: 13-R
    R equivalence: R
    For NR rated Films with
    G equivalence: G-NR
    PG equivalence: PG-NR
    PG-13 equivalence: 13-NR
    R equivalence: R-NR
