Video: The 4 Big Lies In Fifty Shades of Grey

Zoe Romanowsky - published on 02/16/15

Matt Fradd explains why this best-seller is not a love story at all.

The movie, Fifty Shades of Grey, based on the best-selling book by the same name, just opened in theaters this past weekend and just in case you’re still debating whether to check out what all the fuss is about, or you’re trying to persuade friends and family not to see it, here’s a video to help. Matt Fradd from Covenant Eyes— an internet accountability and filtering company—talks about why Fifty Shades of Grey is not a love story at all, but a violent, misogynistic, pornography-filled story with subtle — and not so subtle — lies about sexuality and relationships.
