Evangelical trailers

The Americans have started advertising movies, or religious-linkable movies (theoretically, anything with a good-overcomes-bad message??? ie. a large majority of all movies!?) in churches. I've just been watching ABC News (via the odd roundup they show on BBC News 24) and was appalled that they've let commercialism in like that. I know some religious sects over there (and, surely, elsewhere) are rather dodgy and seem like money-making schemes for their leaders; but this immediately made me think of that section in the bible where Jesus goes round overturning the gamblers and traders in the churches where he was growing up. Apparently they want to try and capitalise on the evangelist 'market segment' (ugh, even calling it a market segment seems wrong...)
