Those wonderful Christians

IMAX theaters in the Carolinas, Georgia and Texas have decided not to show the film Volcanoes of the Deep Sea because it makes references to the connection between human DNA and those of undersea microbes.

There were no protests (that I”m aware of); there was no outrage by Jesus freaks. The theaters apparently decided that it”s not worth the risk of “offending” patrons who believe in creationism, not evolution. Lawyers might refer to this prior restraint.

So is this the standard we can expect here in the South? Something that contains information Christians don”t agree with simply won”t be shown? Are Christians really so delicate that they can”t handle being exposed to information that doesn”t mesh with their beliefs?

Maybe Tom DeLay will introduce a bill banning the volcano film, just to be sure.
