Brokeback Banned in Bahamas

The BBC is reporting that Brokeback Mountain will not be allowed to be shown in the Bahamas. The powers that be have refjected it on the grounds that it contains "extreme homosexuality, nudity and profanity." No word on any further action but the Rainbow Alliance was quoted, in the article, and I imagine they're not done.

Go ahead, keep banning the film. Banning the film generates news articles. News articles keep it in mainstream consciousness. That means more tickets, and rentals. The producers will get rich off your indignation. I love how that works. --Terrence Ryan
