Lone resistance to The Last Temptation?

28 February 2014


From the Revd Toby Crowe

Sir, - I read with interest that opposition to the screening of The Last Temptation of Christ was "confined to a single person distributing leaflets before the screening". This, at least, is how the Dean of Wells saw it (News 31 January).

I, for one, asked him to reconsider his decision, in an email acknowledged by his secretary on the same day as he told you how little opposition there had been. I doubt I was the only one to do so.

Doesn't that count as opposition, too? And, if not, why not?
