Desire and ability

A minister announced that the film Brokeback Mountain has nothing positive and is offensive particularly due to the "abnormal behavior" of homosexuality. No surprise of course. Christians have been throwing tantrums about the film even before it was released.

But I didn't say the minister was a Christian nor did I say what kind of minister he is. In fact he is from the Ministry of Culture and Information with the United Arab Emirates. Of course the Islamic fundamentalists like their Christian counterparts are opposed to this film. They are peas in the same pod.

The UAE has banned the film. Fundamentalist Christians lack that power in the US though they would dearly love to have it. Their reluctance to do the same is not due to their wishes only to their abilities.
