BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - An atheist organization that says it relies on the right to express unpopular opinions is offering to show “The Interview” at its upstate New York headquarters.

Center for Inquiry President Ronald Lindsay says Friday in a letter to Sony Pictures that shelving of the satirical film sends a troubling message about censoring ideas that may offend some people.

Lindsay says the Buffalo-based Center for Inquiry believes so strongly in the right to express even unpopular ideas that it’s willing to risk showing the film.

He says the center would show the movie in its auditorium and open it to the public free of charge.

Sony pulled the movie about a fake plot to assassinate North Korea’s leader after a hacking attack the FBI blamed on the country’s government.
