Prayer party against porno on television

By

This one is for all of you out there who think that the Dutch are so very liberal and totally relaxed about sex, drugs and rock & roll.

A huge brouhaha has been created by a Dutch television station that will be broadcasting the 1972 porno film Deep Throat after 10 pm I might add on Feb 23. As if all those R&B videos with ‘hos’, those sex programmes with couples getting married naked in Jamaica and misleading webcam sites haven’t taken up enough space on television already.

Apparently, a bunch of religious fanatics (yes, we have those too) led by former evangelical television director Bert Dorenbos have decided to pray on Friday 8 February and Friday 15 February by the television broadcast tower to try and stop the broadcasting of the film.

1. Unless you take the tower out Jack Bauer style, you’re wasting your time. I hope it rains really hard.
2. Are you blind to all that other porn-like stuff on TV or just having Christian tunnel vision?
3. Don’t watch, no one is forcing you. You can always rent it if you change your mind.

  1. When you say “all that other porn-like stuff on TV,” you should probably also mention a show on their very own evangelist channel, 40 Dagen Zonder Seks (40 Days Without Sex), where they try and frame the narrative to portray some of the contestants as true sluts, and where the leader has images of sun-cream ejaculating from bottles.

    But none of this is news. The evangelists aren’t interested in faith, or (fighting) obscenity, they’re only interested in control.

  2. And they have a lot of time to waste on Friday nights apparently.

  3. All morals aside, this movie *is* of incredibly bad taste. It was made in the early seventies, furcrissakes, the heydays of way too much pubic hair.

  4. What really bugs me is that people stil today get ideas about sex in porno movies and this one didn’t help. Disney doesn’t help either, but that’s less raunchy :)
