Paging Elmer Gantry…

Filed under by Amanda Toering — 04/18/2005 @ 10:05 am

Summoning Elmer “You’ll Burn In Hell!” Gantry, TV Week explores the Right’s religious mandate to save us all from TV.

Welcome to 21st century America, where a thin majority of narrow-minded Elmer Gantrys are determined to act as though they have some great mandate to impose their last-century ideology and old-fashioned point of view on the rest of us for our own good, even if it is anything but good for us.

In other words, at a time when there is crime in the streets, crime in corporate America and criminal pollution in our environment and we are being robbed at the gas pump, you, Mr. Broadcaster, may face time in the slammer because somebody flashed an inappropriate body part or pitched an F-bomb on your air, probably without any foreknowledge on your part and almost certainly without your permission.
