So-called “progressives” want to rewrite the history books.
They hate the fact that Bible-believing Christians are responsible for the success of the Western world.
Now this movie about the Bible is being banned for this absurd reason.
The Bible Society is a non-profit organization that translates and distributes bibles all across the world.
They recently made a short film about how the Bible was crucial to the perseverance of many British soldiers during the first world war.
British theater “Empire Cinemas” had agreed to run the short film in honor of the 100-year anniversary of the WWI armistice.
But now they are going back on their agreement.
The British movie theater “Empire Cinemas” now refuses to run the film, saying it’s “too religious for the public.”
The Guardian writes:
A UK cinema chain has rejected a short film highlighting the comfort some first world war soldiers found in the Bible.
The film by the Bible Society was intended to be shown in 125 screens around the country in the run-up to the armistice centenary this weekend, but was vetoed by Empire Cinemas, which does not accept religious or political advertising.
Over footage of soldiers in trenches, the three-minute film informs viewers that all British troops were given a Bible as part of their kit. “To many it was a source of hope, for eternal peace,” reads caption material.
According to the Bible Society, the cinema advertising company Pearl & Dean agreed to distribute the film. But in an email sent to the society last month, Pearl & Dean said Empire Cinemas, which has 125 screens at 14 venues across the UK, had declined to show the film.
“The reason for this is in the contracts with our exhibitors, they get veto over any sort of religious or political ad. I am sorry to deliver this news, but unfortunately they do get final say,” said Pearl & Dean’s email.
Paul Woolley of the Bible Society said: “The Bible is not a ‘religious’ document, just for Christians or just for ‘religious’ life; it’s a book for everyone. It’s an historical fact that the Bible was a core part of a British soldier’s kit and that, to many, it was a source of hope.
So instead of allowing the public to decide whether they think the short film is too religious for their tastes, they just cut the showing altogether.
This is just another example of how the movie theater industry wants to censor anything remotely Christian or conservative.
And it’s not just happening overseas.
Here in America, Hollywood is more emboldened than ever in making fun of Christians and conservatives.
As we reported, a liberal comedian tried to depict Jesus as a pansexual hippie that “curses all the time.”
So-called “progressives” show their true colors when they try to get away with these antics.
Their goal is to silence anyone who disagrees with them.
But it will continue to backfire on them just as it did in 2016 when Trump won the presidency.
