Star Wars and the Lord

Here is the 56-second video that was to have been shown in UK theaters before the new Star Wars movie (The Force Awakens) but “has been rejected…due to fears it could be offensive.”  The Church of England was going to pay for it to be included with the movie trailers and popcorn ads that are shown before a movie begins.

The movie lasts 136 minutes; the video, 1.  But apparently even one minute about the Lord is deemed to be too much for Star Wars fans to have to endure.

Truly we live in a world that prefers the dark side…with not so much as a token mention of the Light.

But maybe I’m being too harsh.  Perhaps the video would indeed give offense and therefore deserves to be kept out of theaters.  If you have a minute, why don’t you watch it and judge for yourself.
