And I think trying to stir up Christian and religious animosity to get a film extra attention has been used so many times over the last decades that it no longer works.
I'm sure a lot of British films didn't get a release in America either. Is that because of religious America too?
With movies like the Saw series and other horror and macabre movies showing in U.S cinemas all the time, it's almost laughable that these industry types still keep trying to make out that the religious christians have any power over what gets released to cinemas and what doesn't these days.

How weak in faith must the 'American Christian' be to be threatened by a film?
If religion wasn't a control system, the movie would face this kind of censorship. It just shows the sham of valueless Christian values.
This is quite ridiculous. What's next? Ban Star Wars in case people begin to follow 'The Force'?
