“No matter how many times you see Monty Python and the Holy Grail, it still makes you laugh, right? But I always lapse into nervous silence when the mob yells, 'We've found a witch! May we burn her?'”

    The first time I ever saw this movie, I was stoned, and I walked in on some friends at the rabbit scene. I thought I was gonna DIE, and cough up my guts in laughter. Oh, MAN, that rabbit…

    I laugh every time I see the Wizard of Oz. I swear it’s a movie with an atheistic moral and viewpoint. Yes, Baum was religious, but both he and his wife were self-proclaimed theosophists and debated religion voraciously. Who knows what leaked out while he was writing that piece.

    All of us are subjected to so much superstitious/religious claptrap in our fomative years its no wonder that some of it lurks in our subconcious mind. Even after we have through logic and rational debate kicked it into box marked Tooth Fairy, Santa Claus.Religion and other Bollocks – we can’t unlearn it. I do not beat myself up about it.

  4. The Heretic Says:

    Actually, condsidering how much superstitious nonsense we are subjected to – why aren’t we immune in our later years? Why don’t some disregard deities as they do Santa Clause and the tooth fairy? I am assuming some just need an invisible friend, albeit a courtyard bully, to make their way through life.

    Burn her anyway!
