Comment 15 by Bill Salt :

Usually these adults that indoctrinate their children with religion, will not allow their children to watch (R) rated movies, but are recklessly willing to install a psychological fear of demons and hellfire that's not easily removed, even in their adulthood.

What an excellent point! The same people, of course, shun the human body, and so many other things. It reminds me of my in-laws, who once nearly shit themselves when I once accidentally said "fuck" around their children, but who let the same very young children watch movies like A Nightmare on Elm Street, Scarface, and also let them play shotgun-to-the-head-type "Mature 17+" video games.
