The Liguorian - a memory



My Mom useta subscribe to a weekly paper called the Liguorian, because she was a good catholic, and wanted to strengthen her hypno-indictrination. We eventually found it very useful when it came to going to the movies: if they condemned it- it was a viable candidate. They would list every movie playing and rate it "catholic-style!" which ran from endorsed to condemned - it was awesome because sometimes the titles shouldn't've even been in there....haw!

Despite its efforts I still got to see Wild in the Streets and I Love You, Alice B. Toklas!

Lex, the minute this turned up on my FB (via the linked blogs) of course everyone assumed it was my doing. Great, twisted minds think alike. Between me, you, PZ, and Vincent-Louis, Catholic childhoods make for great movie watching.
