I am not sure whether I should quote from his email on my weblog, but I found that very funny. Mind you, I am not making fun of religious people’s sensibilities. Obviously, everyone can decide on what sort of stuff they should or should not watch and I respect that. I favor the slogan “bikini or burqa by personal choice.”3 I just find it funny to see a young guy assuring everyone about the supposed “clean”-ness of the movie as related to women. Why didn’t he say anything about violence in the movie, for example?
