Let's say you're driving your car around Ottawa, and you see a line full of die-hard movie fans waiting to attend a rare screening of the 1968 George Romero classic Night of the Living Dead. Is your first instinct to pull your car over, hand your significant other a video camera, stand on your always-handy stepstool, and scream about Judgment Day to the captive audience?

It is if you're Paul Latour. Patrons of the Mayfield Theatre were treated to a sermon from the spontaneous zealot at their screening last week. Letour writes on his blog, "Murder, gore, bloodshed and cannibalism only begins to describe the kind of 'entertainment' that was being offered. And, of course, people are still lining up to pay and view horrific merriment on the screen. Kim and I thought this would be a good opportunity to preach the gospel to an organic congregation and hand out some tracts."

No, it's probably not the best time to make a positive impression for Christ, but at least it sounds like Latour has actually seen the film.
