"Bleep" Save the Queen

This is what could happen if schools were given a list of "bad" words that would not be allowed to be found in novels in the curriculum or school library.

The CBC reports that all mention of God were bleeped out of the Oscar-nominated movie "The Queen." Jeff Klein, president of the distribution company, stated that some films being distributed to Delta and other airlines, had all references to God bleeped by mistake by an overzealous and inexperienced employee who was told to edit out all profanities and blasphemies.

What passengers heard was, "(Bleep) bless you, ma'am," as one character speaks to the queen. In all, the word "God" is bleeped seven times.
