We just don't have nearly enough sanctimonious conservative blowhards telling us how to live our lives.

I wonder what Bennett thinks of "The Passion of the Christ" being given an "R" rating, rather than "NC-17". Here is what Ebert had to say about it:

Note: I said the film is the most violent I have ever seen. It will probably be the most violent you have ever seen. This is not a criticism but an observation; the film is unsuitable for younger viewers, but works powerfully for those who can endure it. The MPAA's R rating is definitive proof that the organization either will never give the NC-17 rating for violence alone, or was intimidated by the subject matter. If it had been anyone other than Jesus up on that cross, I have a feeling that NC-17 would have been automatic.
