Players No Longer Play the Same-Sex Marriage Card

Call off the boycott, brothers and sisters. According to the Globe and Mail, Famous Players has dropped the same-sex marriage ads from their theatres. The “issue-driven” adverts have been pulled from 79 theatres after threats were made to the Players staff. Though the ads have ceased, the Calgary-based Canadian Family Action Coalition still wants to see balance in movie theatres, and is demanding Famous Players run an anti-same-sex marriage ad.
Meanwhile, Sponge-Bob Square Pants is just happy the spotlight is off of him. Next up for the Christian do-gooders: Shrek 2.
