A billboard company in Cleveland, where the Republican Party will hold its convention next week, has rejected a giant ad promoting the release of “God’s Not Dead 2″ for being “too incendiary,” but a quote by former President Ronald Reagan used on a pro-atheist billboard has been approved.
The Hollywood Reporter said on Wednesday that the “God’s Not Dead 2″ ad was rejected by Orange Barrel Media for its text, which reads: “I’d rather stand with God and be judged by the world than stand with the world and be judged by God.”
Orange Barrel reportedly told Pure Flix, the distributor, that it did not like the phrase “judged by God,” claiming that it was “too political” and “way too incendiary.”
The film, which was released earlier this year, is about a high school teacher, played by Melissa Joan Hart, who answers a question about Jesus in class, which leads to a high-profile court case.
