More Christianists Demanding Special Rights

From the Houston Chronk:

The Friendly Atheist reports that two movie theaters in the Greater Dallas area aren’t allowing clips by a local atheist group to run in their theaters.

The Green Oaks Movie Tavern in Arlington rejected last month an ad from the Dallas-Fort Worth Coalition of Reason, citing a policy against religious advertising, and now the Angelika Film Center in Plano has rescinded an initial decision to run the ad, even though it has accepted ads from churches.

Zachary Moore, who leads the Coalition of Reason chapter,  told the local CBS affiliate Angelika had received complaints from Christians….

And, now, the money shot:

[Dallas attorney Stewart Thomas] says, “it seems to me the public accommodation is to attend the theater and watch the movie everyone has the right to watch the movie. I’m not sure the theater has to sell to anyone that wants to buy advertising.”

Uh huh….

Riiiiiiight….
