The Church of England has said it is “bewildered” by a decision to ban an advertisement featuring The Lord’s Prayer from the UK’s cinemas.
The Church said the refusal of the country’s top cinemas to show the 60 second advert was “plain silly” and could have a “chilling effect” on free speech.
The Church has published a new JustPray as part of its strategy to adapt to the digital age with advice on what prayer is and how to pray. The site also provides a “live prayer” feed of prayers being prayed across the globe via Twitter, Instagram and Vine. The cinema advert promotes the new website and the plan was for it to be shown in cinemas from December 18th before Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
