Bowling is THE wholesome activity. It is one of the few remaining middle-class participatory sports. The pinnacle of innocent fun, I have heard that over in St. Paul there’s an alley in the basement of a church. What about the separation of church and bowling?
Most censorship of public morals is carried on by churches. The effort to satisfy a wide range of sensibilities forces them to swing to the right. The objective decisions of their censorship boards apply only to members of that church. Using threats of boycott and other economic pressures, the boards can force private firms not to publish or print distasteful subject matter.
The controversial photograph by American photographer Andres Serrano, “Piss Christ” is something that the middle class family normally does not come in contact with, since it is found hanging in an art gallery. The media outcry “lofted” by the late Jesse Helms has brought it home and up your alley.
A pilgrimage to the new frontier would find the Judeo-Christian-thought-police are still here. I, too have been programmed. Themes of belief and damnation are central to the production of my obscene material. Being an artist, language is inadequate to express my dreams, desires, emotional and altered state. I need visuals, perhaps technically-assisted telepathy where you can literally see what I mean. A little imagination is needed by everyone, as opposed to a fine line of discrimination.
My goals are Truth and Beauty.
