If it was just some Muslim clergy objecting to a movie (clergy have to worry about box office too), one would gently reply, "Oh blessed imam, peace be all over you and yours, and behold: I do not give a flying ****. Selah."

But it's not. There really is a bomb vest crowd, and they really do want their 144 virgins. Prudence is called for by the infidel movie chain. (Let's hope that they tell the coppers all about any threats.)

If the pious clergy find themselves associated in the public mind with the rough trade, then

By the Prophet's dingdong, I am very sorry.
