The Digital Cinema Media Agency (who run Odeon, Cineword and Vue) have banned the above advert from showing in cinemas. Their justification is revealing.
“some advertisements – unintentionally or otherwise – could cause offence to those of differing political persuasions, as well as to those of differing faiths and indeed of no faith,” and that “in this regard, DCM treats all political or religious beliefs equally”.
This is what ‘equality of religion’ means in secularist eyes. We all get treated the same. We all get excluded from the public square. This is the secularist version of equality and diversity.
Footnote: the NSS have just tweeted in response to us “Nice try! There is no ban on the Lords Prayer. We support the right of cinemas to decline religious/party political adverts.” The DCM have banned the C of E advert – the NSS tell us there is no ban (just the freedom to decline). It would be disappointing if a primary school pupil could not see the illogicality and dumbness of that remark! This shows the kind of Orwellian use of language that our militant secularists use. They want us all to be equal – which means we all get banned!
