Vue Cinemas cancels ‘gay cure’ film screening after protests

Feb 7, 2018 by

from ITV:

Vue Cinemas has cancelled a private screening of a controversial documentary about “conversion therapy” after protests from LGBT+ rights campaigners.

Voices of the Silenced: Experts, Evidences and Ideologies features testimony from 15 people who claim to have “emerged out of homosexual lifestyles” after undergoing so-called gay cure treatments.

The private UK premiere organised by the evangelical Christian group Core Issues Trust was due to be held at Vue Piccadilly in central London tomorrow evening. The group, which had hired a screen for the premiere, said it was “disappointed” by the decision and insisted that the documentary was not “hateful”.

However, after invitations were sent out to press, more than 600 people signed a petition calling for the screening to be cancelled after details were obtained by Pink News, an LGBT+ new publisher.

Some people said they would boycott the chain if the film was shown.

Editor’s note:

At Anglican Mainstream we have for many years been highlighting the way the powerful LGBT lobby has prevented an alternative point of view from being heard. In particular, through a combination of emotive rhetoric, false information, bullying and intimidation, they have suppressed expression of the fact that some people have successfully moved away from unwanted sexual identities, feelings and practices, and they have all but shut down similar pathways for those who choose to explore them. The point of the film “Voices of the Silenced” is to explain this censorship and restriction of freedom, so it is an extraordinary irony that a private screening of the film has been prevented. Nothing could better illustrate the threat to freedom of belief which affects us all.
