A letter to the editor of The New York Times:

To the Editor:

Re "Months Before Debut, Movie on Death of Jesus Causes Stir" (front page, Aug. 2):

Why is it that free speechers will defend the publicly financed exhibit of a religious image in urine, but not a privately financed controversial movie on the death of Christ? If they object to the movie, they don't have to watch it.
