How did this country get so messup'd? Gay marriage, weed legal, uppity woman Senators, Buddho-Pagan-Yogini churches on my street, the white house gone all darky and Kenyan? I'll tell you where it started. I saw it happen. It was the night they let Elvis Presley on the Ed Sullivan show.

Who has the courage to finally say it? The essential force behind every form of religious fundamentalism is sexual repression. Denied by the psyche, this results in acts of violence and visions of apocalyptic disaster. Acknowledged by the psyche, this force becomes sexual or creative expression. Celibacy is not repression. Celibacy is keeping the life force moving upward, like a flame.
