RELIGION FRIGHTENS CELEBS
Catalyst October Issue 2004
As the Republican National Convention was winding down, a counter-convention event was taking place in New York that featured composer Philip Glass. Glass told a room of celebrities that the U.S. is being “taken over by religion” and that the country is being “ruled by the Bible and not the Constitution.”
It is not surprising that Philip Glass would sound the alarms over religion. A buddy to the
late pervert/artist Robert Mapplethorpe, Glass is known for his Catholic-bashing opera, “Galileo Galilei.” He is also the creator of “The Happy Non-Offensive, Non-Denominational Christmas,” a highly offensive and scatological attack on Christmas.
Why is it that it always seems to be people like Glass who are the most frightened by religion? They should try it some time. Maybe they’d like it.
