I love in the Oliver Stone version of the Doors, Ed Sullivan is trying to get Jim Morrison to sing "girl we couldn't get much better", instead of "girtl we couldn't get much higher". Dunno if that was his actual suggestion to Jim, but the fact that lyric was controlversial is laughable by today's standards.
Also, I had no idea Dylan had a song about the John Bitch Society..lol
'the same rel. groups...are often the ones who...'
quite so...let's not forget...the klan was a religious organization...and the...ahem...(cough - cough!!) golden days when religion reigned o'er everything w/impugnity where the ones where crowds of happy little white folk would regularly gather w/their beers and burgers on the village square to happily and 'christian-ly' lynch a black guy for supposedly looking at a white woman...if the murdered victim had even done that !
while many/most did not agree with them or their tactics/sentiments...society as a whole rreally did not put much effort into stopping it/...
same goes for the american indian...same goes for jews in germany and throughout europe in the '30's...same goes for so many peoples, even up to this day
it shows an endemic problem within some aspects of faith itself that it so often cannot get it correct within its own confines...but has no problem attempting to generate a mass appeal/effect and doing unto others as they unable to do to themslves
