Kudos to Steve Martin for putting his money where his mouth is. An Oregon high school was forced to cancel a production of Martin’s play “Picasso at the Lapin Agile” due to typical American Christian/conservative idiocy about mature themes. Martin stepped in and helped them stage an off-campus performance at a nearby college
One has to wonder about these parents… Did they attend high school in Mayberry? Having seen the play in question when it was put on at MTC a few years back I have great difficulty seeing what their complaints are about. The so called mature themes are tame compared to a Monday morning discussion of the past weekend, much less other literature that is tackled in high school or (god forbid) a night of television.
If you want to homeschool your kids and turn them into sheltered, useless human being with no social skills… do so… stop forcing everyone else’s children to lower themselves to your level.
