Britain Bans Ad for Containing The Lord’s Prayer


An advertisement encouraging Britain to pray has been banned by British movie theaters that have deemed the commercial as too offensive to be shared with the general public.

The commercial was created by the Church of England and had been planned to be released alongside the opening of the new film in the Star Wars franchise, “The Force Awakens.”

The “offensive” commercial is about one minute in length and features the Archbishop of Canterbury and other Christians from across the country reciting the Lord’s Prayer as they go about their daily lives.

Arun Arora, who is the director of communications for the Church of England, told CNN: “I am shocked by this wrong decision. We worked with DCM from the beginning. We said: ‘We are religious, we are the Church of England. Is there a problem with that?’ They said, ‘no that’s fine.’ They were very happy and welcoming and even offered us a 50% discount on the price of advertising slots.” Arora also added that the Church of England was considering legal action because “Under the equality act, you can’t lump religious and political beliefs together. Political views are not a protected characteristic, but religious belief is.”

Even some of Britain’s liberals (who have mainly cheered the decision – not realizing that they are in essence supporting the destruction of free speech), were a bit surprised, considering that Parliament still recites the Lord’s Prayer at the start of each day.
