    Thanks a lot DyePack. You just proved my point.

    We all know that it's a movie.  We all know that it's not 'real'.  But it doesn't mean that it won't affect a 12-year old called on to simulate the physical and emotional trauma of rape.  That is what is being debated here.

    I just wanted to address the fact that you use so much rhetoric your arguments get lost in a flurry of hatred. But if it makes you feel better to spew the "easy" answers than to actually use reasoned and reserved arguments, there's not much hope for you.

    Liberals, take a bow.  Your cultural permissiveness pushes the card every day in the ethical center of your politic: Hollywood.

    And by the way, don't be bitching about it now.  Cat's out of the bag, and Hollywood's having another laugh about how they play you people.

    Oh yeah? They didn't show the rape in a Time to Kill...only the implication.

    The throwing her over the bridge was disturbing, but drew you into her character, or the emotion of her father.

    I think you can GET THE POINT across without a live sex scene involving a 12-year-old.

    But again, it's another "push of the card" for Hollywood.
  6. Yes, because child-rape, simulated or otherwise, is the province of Hollywood liberals.
    Please see: "Church, Roman Catholic" for details.

    This in an email to me:

    "Just when I thought I have seen it all, and thought that society could not sink any lower, Hollywood comes along to prove me wrong.

    "I was sitting nice and comfortable in my living room, watching the evening news on the Fox News Channel, thinking about how great it is to have four more years to get some morality back into our society, when a new item about a new movie coming out of Hollywood, titled "BIRTH", Staring Nichole Kiddman.

    " According to the news report about the movie, it is about a woman's (Kiddman) dead husband who comes back to life as a 10 year old boy, isn't that wonderful? In the movie, there is a scene where the boy gets undressed and climbs into a bathtub, where a naked Nichole awaits him. In another scene, Nichole and the boy share an open mouth kiss. And, in still another scene, Nichole asks the boy if he has ever had sex with a girl.

    " Just what kind of message does this movie send to the child molesters in our country? Just last week, in one of our eastern States, a thirty-some year old woman (a mother of an eight year old daughter) was arrested for having sexual intercourse with an eight year old boy (a playmate of her daughter). Her explanation was that she was fantasying that the child was her boyfriend and that they were deeply in love (perhaps she saw the movie "BIRTH"). But, what really shocked me, was on the Fox News Channel, they said that a National Child Protection group was asked what they thought of this movie, and their answer was: "We don't feel that it is our place to make any judgments or statements about the movie." Wonderful, then just who's place is it?"

    I can't wait to see someone attack the Fox News Channel for slanted journalism.

    You're sharing with us an email about Birth? The movie that was released in October 2004? Are you friends with d_b?

    Would you like to share your email about the end of the Red Sox Curse?

    Tell d_b her name is Nicole Kidman, not Nichole Kidman.

  9. OK, Fox News Channel is slanted news for five-year olds.
    And that movie's four years old. And Rupert Murdoch, who founded Fox News, is a glorified tits-n-bum merchant who'd put a five-year old pulling a train with a Hells Angels chapter in a movie if he thought it meant more money.
    Try to keep current with the Rightwing Outrage du Jour, will you?

    So what? It's just the continued evolution of the process. And they're laughing at you under their breath while saying "see you at the polls...remember, our enemy is the GOP."

    They're laughing at this right now - saying "Can you believe they're so dumb? Just hold up a picture of Bush in case they really get stressed and they're putty in our hands."

    Uhhh OK. Time to take your meds.

    Fenian said it far better than I could have: When you guys cry about Hollywood's poor taste, you lionize a guy whose tabloids and programming plumb the depths of poor taste on a daily basis.
