Being preached at from the stage
about tolerance & acceptance
whilst being shown images of women bearing their breasts for the crowd
watching a woman dance provocatively with lots of men,
only one her boyfriend
This weird mix of philosophy & physical feeling
reminds me of The Matrix Reloaded;
unrealistic idealism mixed with sensual indulgence.
He’s not wrong
this IS their church
this is where they heal their hurts
where they lift their hands to their idols
are preached to
develop their morals
experience their ‘highs’
feel valued and part of something.
Here they find they belong
find something to live for
find something to fight against
find something to worship
something to take the pain away
to distract them from their lives.
