A Valuable Addition to the Team

Just how crazy is Richard Williamson, the schismatic conspiracy theorist and Holocaust denier whom Pope Benedict just ex-excommunicated? Here's what Williamson wrote in 1997 about a certain anti-Nazi movie:

As for cleanness, many films may be worse than the Sound of Music, but stop and think - are youth, physical attractiveness and being in love the essence of marriage? Can you imagine this Julie Andrews staying with the Captain if "the romance went out of their marriage"? Would she not divorce him and grab his children from him to be her toys?

Such romance is not actually pornographic but it is virtually so, in other words all the elements of pornography are there, just waiting to break out. One remembers the media sensation when a few years later Julie Andrews appeared topless in another film. That was no sensation, just a natural development for one rolling canine female.
Tip from the Daily Dish.

Thanks for the tip. That'll come in useful in my project studying religious fallacies and misinformation, reported on periodically on my blog. I'm not a fan of The Sound of Music, but that is frankly the strangest interpretation of it of which I have ever heard.
