A movie theater is banning a movie with the Bible in it for the most insane reason

26

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.

  1. When I fought in the US Army in Vietnam I carried a Pocket size New Testament with me and it was a comfort to me knowing I had the Good Lord watching out for me when the chips were down so I say Boycott the Theaters for two weeks and put them on their knees and teach them to Pray

  2. Jesus spoke of this time of a great falling away from God by mankind. But He did not pine about it – He simply said that when we see this come to pass ‘to look up, for our redemption draweth nigh”. So as we watch the world reject God – and never in such a great way as now – it won’t be long until Jesus makes His return – Be Ready.

  3. What is this craziness that 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. ” Of course it is a religious document!! How would he take someone saying this:
    The Koran is not a “religious” document, just for Muslims or just for religious life; it is a book for everyone.”

    You could insert the Book of Mormon, the RgVeda, the Bhagavad Gita, the Dao de Jing etc. in that statement and clearly it would be absurd. You continually try to make the case that only one political group is Christian, and that others are trying to take away your freedoms. Not so! just because this chain did not want to show this movie might have more to say about the quality of the movie.

  4. Do not fret because of those who are evil
    or be envious of those who do wrong;
    for like the grass they will soon wither,
    like green plants they will soon die away
    For those who are evil will be destroyed,
    A little while, and the wicked will be no more;
    though you look for them, they will not be found.
    he wicked plot against the righteous
    and gnash their teeth at them;
    but the Lord laughs at the wicked,
    for he knows their day is coming.
    The wicked draw the sword
    and bend the bow
    to bring down the poor and needy,
    to slay those whose ways are upright.
    But their swords will pierce their own hearts,
    for the power of the wicked will be broken,
    But the wicked will perish:
    Though the Lord’s enemies are like the flowers of the field,
    they will be consumed, they will go up in smoke.
    but the Lord upholds the righteous.
    and their bows will be broken.
    Wrongdoers will be completely destroyed[c];
    the offspring of the wicked will perish.
    The wicked lie in wait for the righteous,
    intent on putting them to death;
    but the Lord will not leave them in the power of the wicked
    or let them be condemned when brought to trial.

  5. I don’t have a lot in the way of religion, but, have never felt the need to denigrate those that do.
    I admit to admiring christians and Christianity for the way they have handled the constant bullying , by the liberal dem bloodsuckers and their queer, bent gender and atheistic familiars, without making any serious attempt at retribution.
    It is coming, that is the way that people are sooner tr later, when they are mistreated long enough, they seek retribution.
    I have no idea what form it will take, but it will happen.
    Were I a member of importance in the religious community, I would probably start with closing the ER’s in the 43% of hospitals, founded and funded by religions and refuse service to any one not of my faith.
    I would close all of the free clinics funded bt religions and all of the Food Banks, and refuse entry to any of the colleges and universities funded by religions.
    Perhaps after several million of them had died inthe streets from lack of medical care and starvation, I would go back and ask, if they had learned any manners, yet.

    • “Vengance is mine, saith the Lord…” Most believers hold onto this-and though we do not want anyone to suffer the fate of those who outright reject God, leave the judgment up to Him…

  6. Truth is important. The Bible is not a religious document. People make it a religious document. True Christianity is the life of a true follower of Christ.
    It also was not just another book but shines a light from the Son of God that a True Christian walks in. Some also see it as a road map for life in this evil time we are living in where men are lovers of themselves and not lovers of God the Father or his Son Jesus Christ. You might want to study how and where the Bible originated.

  7. Western Civilization, including the United States, have over the last several decades denied their religious heritage. Christianity is slowing disappearing on the European Continent, and religious liberty is under constant attack and threat in the U.S. It is not surprising this British movie theater has canceled this brief film.

  8. Britain is an Islam country now and as a result Britain’s history is being changed to match the fake history of Britain always being an Islam country so therefore Britain’s soldiers could not have had a Christian Bible with them to comfort them in war. This is how Islam takes over a country, lying about a Christian Bible being good but the Koran is okay, perfect in fact by changing a country’s history. This will happen in the U.S. too, it is already happening in our major cities. Britain’s Christians are being browbeaten into being subjects of Islam, better yet the word should be terrorized by the gov’t into putting Christianity down. I hope Britain enjoys living under Islam as their gov’t is already terrorizing Christians to benefit Islam and Muslims.

  9. “But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.” (2 Peter 3:10) But His Word will remain. His Word will be your Judge. You can know right now by reading it where you will end up. Don’t pass up the opportunity to find that out. He loves you.

  10. Christianity is not a religion. It is our relationship with God through Jesus, the Christ, the Son of God. See John 3:16. The First Baptist Church promotes a religion with its own rules, beliefs, creed, etc. This is not to say that Baptists don’t also support Christianity, hopefully they all do, but the Baptist Church is it’s own organization, as are all religions. Your relationship with God needs no religious organization to flourish. The Bible does not require church attendance. Early Christians met in private homes to avoid the wrath of the Romans who wanted them dead and gone and frequently demonstrated their hatred of Christians by crucifying those caught violating Roman law. Frankly, I never thought I would see Christians openly discriminated against in the USA. We seem to be more tolerant of evil these days than we are of truth and goodness. Whether you call yourself a Christian or not, you should be alarmed when innocent people are judged for their beliefs and evil-doers are not judged for their behaviors. It’s a crisis to be sure.

  11. Interesting. Ban the Bible but I would bet that they show movies that glorify T**s, P***s, and a**s because that brings in the money. As the saying goes, “follow the money”. Marine Bob
