cognitivedissonance - 2012-10-11 I remember my first brush with social conservatism as a child came from wanting to watch this movie at a sleepover, because it was my favorite movie ever and I wanted to share it with my friends. The mother in charge of the affair freaked out and refused to allow it in the house, and told me to go home and not come back.
The next day we had the front door plastered with The Watchtower and and invitations to go the Jehovah's Witness church. This was before my father's own heel turn to reactionary fundamentalism, and he defended me and told me I had made a good choice in films.
Three years later and I'd be trotted out at Pro-Life rallies and forced to sign abstinence pledges.
