In what has to be one of the most absurd decisions, the city of Chicago forced the Christkindlmarket Chicago to remove the upcoming film, The Nativity Story, from the list of sponsors.
Here’s how the list of sponsors used to look:
New Line Cinema, the company behind the movie, says they are “stunned.”
We don’t understand why our sponsorship would be rejected for religious reasons, particularly considering the fact that our film details the story that inspired the holiday season that the Christkindlmarket was created to celebrate.
Irreligious commenters, are you offended by seeing an advertisement of a movie about the birth of Jesus? If Wiccans can have their symbol on a tombstone paid for by the government, why can a major Hollywood studio not advertise a movie about Christmas at a Christmas festival?
