Hey +AMC Theatres
, what's up with the barrage of Christian propaganda you target at children
? Today I took my kids to watch Home
, and we had to put up with no less than three pieces:
, about some awful evangelical music
- Little boy
, delusional fantasy about the power of faith
- Some TV series about Bible/Jesus, don't remember the name
It's not the first time this happens, I remember similar experience watching another kids' movie a few weeks ago. This is not simple advertising of other movies that happen to be G-rated; it's clear targeting of religious bullshit to children. And these trailers are clearly produced as self-contained "evangelization" material, they are equivalent to trailers of teenager's-action movies that show only the parts with cars exploding and tits exposed. Except that I'll rather have my 6/8 year old children watch some killing or soft-porn than religious indoctrination.
Like the well-known quip goes, Religion is like a penis, it's fine to have one and to be proud of it, just don't try to shove it down my children's throats.
Well all I can do is voting with my ticket money. These days theaters are not really that necessary: I have a big 4K TV, I can stream super-recent movies from Google Play and other sources, I don't like 3D anyway, and my home snacks are better and healthier than your stuff and not overpriced. There's the family fun of going out for a movie, but I can take the kids to bowling or some other fun place afterwards.
Link to Home's website both as a signal to other parents, and because the movie is great, recommended. Just not recommended on AMC.
