The Religious Right and Film censorship

David Pogue has an excellent little piece in the NYT about the latest efforts to provide family friendly films and why their efforts fail so miserably. This is a good piece not only on parental control, but on the horrifing way in which the religious right in this country seems to have no problem with extreme and gratuitous violence, suffering, and fundamental inqualities, while becoming apoplectic at the slightest sex or "strong language." Renews my faith in what we're doing here at UC Berkeley in the Rhetoric department.
