‘This Sort of Thing’ Banned


buncrana-cinemaBuncrana Cinema in the former St Mary’s Church, Buncrana, Inishowen, Co Donegal

Delighted that Buncrana Cinema will not be screening ‘Fifty Shades’  [Despite being listed in the  ‘coming up’ section on the cinema’s website] Christian campaigner Mary Doherty, who lives in Bucnrana, , described it as a ‘pornographic’ film which ‘portrays and accepts sexual violence against women’.

Initially fearing that the film would be shown however, Ms Doherty said it would be ‘scandalous’ to show such a film under the church’s roof.

    What the fupp i didn’t want to see this pile of poo movie and from what i have heard they have cut out all the nude bits anyway but i am totally on board with a campaign to get this movie shown in the Buncrana Cinema just to annoy that christian.

    …lovely cinema…they don’t build them like that anymore. Broadsheet should organise for a special screening and competition for readers…can I suggest ‘Eat The Peach’.

            If only! Tis a skin-crawlingly unsexy film adapted from a play set on t’Yorkshire moors, a bloke having a threesome with his two foul-mouthed babysitters. It coined the phrase “We’re having a gangbang, we’re having a ball, we’re having a gangbang against the wall…”

    Good on you Mary. I was that shocked to hear they were going to show that film that I spilt my tea on the telly when the Angelus was on. Luckily I had a bottle of Lourdes Holy Water and Padre Pios sock handy to clear up the mess. I tell you I went through somes decades that night.

      The thoughts of all the 12 year old girls who are flat out ridin’ now that they’re vaccinated and have a free pass for fornicating.

    sexual depravity under a church roof. Despicable. She’s most likely upset that it involves too much straight sex and not enough paed0philia

    A few thoughts come to mind on this one: Is it still a consecrated church or just called St. Mary’s church? Matinee Mass there on Sundays? Secondly, Ms.Doherty ‘described it as a pornographic film’. So the implication is that she has been privy to a pre-screening or has read the book and can ‘imagine’ what it’s gonna be like. And she no like. Or more likely that she has simply heard about it through the media. Lastly, I suspect that this is all a ruse by some wag to amuse his/her pals. I deduced this because either Mary must be either a Catholic Priest or the boss of that deconsecrated church, now bingo hall cum bingo hall. If she is either I support her choice, but if not she should mind her own beeswax.

    It’s not been banned. They just haven’t received it. Some mad auld Christian wan wants it banned but it hasn’t been. Still, this sounds better I suppose.
