On September 18, 2002 The Associated Press reported that "about 100 Houston-area Muslims peacefully protested an adult cinema Wednesday, upset over a film advertised as Sex Life of the Prophet Muhammad in a weekly newspaper. Several of the protesters acknowledged they had not seen the film, citing religious beliefs that prevented them from entering the building. The theater's manager, who declined to give his name, said the owner contracted an exclusive run of the film. Some protesters agreed the theater had a right to run the movie, others argued the government should stop it."
