In Passing

And besides, it’s ‘‘cultural appropriation’’

Alinsky Rule #4  Dept

The Telegraph:
Ban Christmas ads if you don’t like religion, Church tells cinemas

Cinemas should ban all Christmas adverts after refusing to screen a commercial featuring the Lord's Prayer because of its religious content, the Church of England has said.

The Church is threatening to take legal action against Digital Cinema Media (DCM), which handles adverts for cinema giants Odeon, Vue and Cineworld, after it barred an advert featuring the Archbishop of Canterbury encouraging prayer.

DCM told the Church the advert risked ‘‘upsetting or offending audiences’’ and pointed to its policy document barring commercials that advertised ‘‘any religion, faith or equivalent systems of belief’’ or ‘‘any part’’ of any such religion or faith.

Rev Arun Arora, the Church of England’s director of communications, told the Telegraph: ‘‘If they want to be consistent on not carrying any ads that have any connection with religious belief, I’d like them to cancel all ads linked to Christmas as a Christian festival.

‘‘If they’d like to apply it consistently, ban every ad that mentions Christmas.’’
‘‘RULE 4: ‘Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.’

2 Wow, yes how hypocritical. It's funny how they want to do stuff like this without really understanding any of it. Let's hope that things are smoothed out and the people involved begin to re-think there decisions and motives. Debra, handyman |

A good life is one in which you have a lot of money and a good health. If you don’t have health then you will never use your money. whale watching in San Jose del Cabo

5 This is truly ridiculous, I agree 100%. Cinemas are allowed to show what they want and in most cases they are allowing people to view content that I would say is much worse then a hearing a prayer or being blessed by a TV ad. Great points, I loved the article! Kaden @ Hail Repair

7 Best Synthetic Oil" category from more than 15,000 potential contenders.

The close-knit tech industry is racing to acquire Ultra-High-Performance Vehicles, a leading vehicle suspension, and air-cooling supplier and NASA supplier, in what is expected to be the largest acquisition in automotive history.

The acquisition, which would increase Via's stake in Horizon to 57.5%, is expected to close later this month.

The acquisition is worth about $1.2 billion with 8,000 employees, approximately 20 new Airbus A320neos, and more than 1,000 new Challenger 800s, according to multiple sources.

A source familiar with the plans said Via Motors intends to go through the process of acquiring Via's remaining shares in Formula E,

12 Leave Christmas alone! Christianity and Christmas are fundamental parts of Western culture, if you dont like them then move to one of the many countries where they're not practiced.

14 There are a lot of interesting points being brought up by various commentators. Hard to know if there is a definite answer or not but I'm definitely thinking about it! It certainly makes a house painter like me think!

17 Christmas should be out of bounds for the politically correct, - anything these people touch it goes bad. There's no reason we need to listen to these types anyway, ignore them and do your own thing, regards, Jamie..
