… and Robert Goolrick is tough and he takes the horrible people who make up much of Hollywood and the Camp d’Artist to task. A snippet:
Define Artist. Not so easy to do. Now define pedophiliac child rapist. Pretty simple. If Polanski had been, say, a bus driver in Cleveland who had fed Quaaludes and Champagne to a thirteen-year-old girl and then raped and sodomized her, I doubt Jack Lang would be so quick to tell the rest of us about the privileges that come with driving a bus. Jack Lang doesn’t care about bus drivers. Jack Lang cares about Artists.
Just in case you don’t know (I didn’t until his name was linked with this perversion), Jack Lang is a former French Cultural Minister arguing that Roman Polanski should be set free on the Rarified Artist Principle: “Infamous Sodimites are Terrific .”
The Rarified Artist Principle or (RAPe) simply states that wickedness is only committed outside the Camp d’Artist. Anything occurring inside the Camp that could be defined as wicked outside d’Artist must be viewd through the lens of creativity. And when that is done Woody Allen becomes parent of the year and Roman Polanski’s tortured soul is the font from which springs life in all its digital glory.
RAPIST… it’s a way of life.
The only hope for a wicked a perverse generation is the Gospel of Christ, which supplants the wickedness with goodness and the perversion with the Love of God. May we repent and cling to Christ alone.
