Over the last couple of days I’ve read thru the archives of the mailing list for Move American Forward – the organisation behind the campaign to persuade US cinemas not to show Fahrenheit 9/11. I’ve never come across such an incredible amount of bigotry and intolerance in one place. It’s full of people with the most closed minds I’ve ever seen. The most offensive racist and homophobic language goes completely unchallenged.
These people claim to be moving America forward, but it seems to me that they want to take it back to a past where no-one stepped outside of a restrictive definition of normal behavior that was set by the church. I really hope that they represent the death-throes of a particularly unpleasant type of dinosaur.
