Soul Surfer Fights for Bible

Bethany Hamilton lost her arm in a shark attack while surfing.  Months later, she returned to surfing and became a champion.  I plan to watch her movie, "Soul Surfer", when it's released.

Not only did Bethany overcome many obstacles to return to the waters, she also battled producers who edited out the words "Holy Bible" in one of the scenes featuring Bethany's dad reading to her in the hospital room.  Producers wanted to have this movie appeal to non-christians.

Carrie Underwood is also featured in the film.  Producers were okay with Carrie's inspirational comments as long as the source (the Holy Bible) was not disclosed.  Editing is a difficult task, especially if the people editing don't trust the source of Bethany's hope and inspiration.

Make sure you watch this movie and send a message to producers that these are the types of movies you want to see in the future.

Way to take a stand, Bethany.  I salute you!
