NOTHING IS SACRED
Catalyst December 1997
Actress Lauren Hutton believes that though “the maker of us all” is sacred, religion should not be. She objects to religion because it “is a bunch of rules made up mostly by men.” Such logic dictates that she must be anti-basketball as well.
Hutton’s dislike of religion is not universal: she hates our religion more than others. Referring to a recent visit to Africa that the pope made, Hutton exclaimed, “The pope was there, in the middle of the AIDS belt, in his pope-mobile, exhorting hundreds of thousands to poor Kenyans to burn their condoms, which were given to them by the U.S.” How ungrateful of him.
Hutton’s comments, though worthy of the sanitarium, were made at a “Women Together” conference in Hazleton, Pennsylvania.
