Christ Not Welcome for City of Chicago

The city of Chicago wants nothing to do with Christianity and have successfully pulled its support of Chicago’s Christkindlmarket Christmas celebration because of The Nativity Story movie.

The Corner has New Line Cinema’s reaction to the city of Chicago’s demand that the move be banned:

We were stunned that our paid sponsorship of Christkindlmarket Chicago – the largest Christmas celebration in Chicago – was rescinded based on the “religious” content of our film The Nativity Story.

We had committed to a $12,000 sponsorship for the market, which was to include a display area in the Festival tent, logo signage in all print ads, direct mailings, brochures, flyers and on the website.

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.

Wizbang has more details, including an image of the sponsorship looked like with The Nativity Story on the list.

Others: Stop The ACLU

Let Chicago city officials know they have overstepped their bounds here.

I can’t wait for The Nativity Story to come out. Here is the trailer:
