I took a newly baptized born-again christian
friend to see the Matt Damon/Ben Affleck film "Dogma"
with George Carlin as the bishop developing a new
public relations plan for JC. Lots of delicious irreverence
towards religion, spirituality, attitudes about sex, but also
posing a lot of things
to take a good, honest look at.
She was a mess ("blasphemy! blasphemy! they're all going
to hell, and I will too, if I stay and watch this!")
and I thought to myself,
now, did you just take her to this movie
to see her squirm? LOL
Well, no, actually. I am innocent, I tell you!
I suggested it because I had
known her to have a very open mind,
especially about sex. As I mentioned, this
born-again christian phase was relatively new.
I was surprised at how offended
she was, and I did find it kind of funny.
She got so worked up and had to leave the movie.
And after I paid good money to see it.....
