Who'd have thunk it? "Footloose" was a documentary.

El Gato Negro!

A human of my acquaintance, back in his school days, gave the "King David/leaping and dancing" speech, the one that Kevin Bacon gives to John Lithgow, to his fundamentalist parents, almost word for word. Quoted the bible verses and everything. They let him go to the prom. I guess he figured his parents would never see the movie.

Es la verdad.


I would say the school authorities are well within their rights, although of course they're being dicks. But what would you expect from fundamentalists? We can apply Menckens' definition of a Puritan to a fundamentalist just as well.

All in all, I'm not sorry this happened to the kid - maybe it will encourage him to take a closer look at religion, and hopefully, outgrow it. And maybe his parents will know better than to put their trust in fundamentalist institutions from now on. One can hope.


And anything that gives us the phrase "fleeing lustful situations" can't be all bad. That made me giggle like crazy.


The school may have no pregnancies, but they don't know the difference between incidence and incidents. He'd be better off expelled.
