SILVER SPRING, Md. --- "This is a day or rejoicing for Adventist Sound of Music fans around the world," said Sabbath Permissions Advocate, Elaine Biggins. "This morning the GC-based Biblical Research Institute added this uplifting classic to its official Sabbath-approved movie listing."
Gwenneth Jones, 96, described the decision as the "biggest victory of my life," sharing how she lobbied for decades for the movie to take its "rightful place next to Charlton Heston's The 10 Commandments."
"We are ecstatic to give Sound of Music the recognition it deserves," said the Biblical Research Institute spokesperson, Milton Longton. "It's taken years of discussion and painstaking study but we know that it was worth the wait."
The institute explained its reasoning for the movie's Sabbath worthiness despite the fact that the film has nuns in it. Integral to its thinking was the fact that "Maria LEAVES the abbey and its papist trappings for a life of singing and service."
The researchers also offered some specific viewing guidelines to enhance the Sabbath-worthiness of the film. Topping this list were strict instructions to fast-forward through what they called the "steamy garden scenes."
