Samoa bans Elton John biopic over gay scenes

The Pacific nation of Samoa has banned the Elton John biopic Rocketman because of its depictions of homosexuality. About 97 per cent of people in Samoa identify as Christian, and the society is generally considered conservative and traditional. Under Samoa’s 2013 Crimes Act, sodomy is deemed an offence punishable by up to seven years in prison.

Censorship is a much greater imorality than homosexual propoganda. I will critique and condem the movie after i have seen it, but until it is free to be seen, i condemn this.

I must respect that Elton John never used Sexuality to define his Career
