Lord’s Prayer may upset somebody

Have your say

Well I never! Cinema chains in OUR Christian country have refused to show an advert featuring the Lord’s Prayer.

The UK’s three leading cinema chains have refused to show an advert by the Church of England that features the Lord’s Prayer, citing fears that it could offend people of other faiths.

It was cleared by the Cinema Advertising Authority and the British Board of Film Classification, but the Odeon, Cineworld and Vue chains, which control 80 per cent of screens around the country, have refused to show the advert because they believe it, “carries the risk of upsetting, or offending, audiences”. Who would it offend? Tell us! Would it be atheists, Hindus, Sihks, Buddhists or Muslims etc?

Someone should enlighten these people that the UK is still a Christian country which still operates free speech and if they want anything Christian and free speech banned they should emigrate to Saudi Arabia, Qatar etc.
