Universal ratings system for games and movies?

Thanks to GamePolitics.com for pointing out a creepy proposal being tossed around the US House of Representatives, which is to creates a "universal ratings system" for games and movies. I say "creepy" because this was brought up during a meeting between high ranking House members and the MPAA, which was initiated by a handful of Christians who are up in arms because the MPAA dared rate Facing the Giants a movie about high school football and faith, PG. They see the rating as a slap in the face, as they believe the film should be rated "G". Because our House leaders will do whatever they can to appease their "base", they took up the issue and scolded the MPAA for its decision (having watched the trailer, I think the MPAA made the right decision).

"Creepy" comes in when you realize these are the people who want video game ratings to be federally regulated, and now they're talking about bringing movies into it, too. I guess books are next.
