The clip the PTA meeting from Field of Dreams (1989) with Amy Madigan, Kevin Costner
And I say smut and filth like this has no place in our schools.
Fascist. I'd like to ease her pain.
Mrs. Kessinik, that book you're waving about is hardly smut.
It's considered by many critics to be the classic novel about the 1960s.
No. The Supreme Court says it's not.
And it's author, Mr. Mann...
Terence Mann is a Pulitzer Prize winner.
He's widely regarded as the finest satirist of his time.
Yeah, well, I think he's a pervert! Probably a communist, too!
What planet are these people from?
The so-called novels of Terence Mann endorse promiscuity, godlessness the mongrelization of the races, and disrespect to high-ranking officers of the United States Army.
And that's why right-thinking school boards all across the country have been banning this man's s-h-i-t since 1969.
You know why he stopped writing books? Because he masturbates.
Excuse me, madam.
Terence Mann was a warm and gentle voice of reason during a time of great madness.
He coined the phrase, "Make love, not war."
While other people chanted, "Burn, baby, burn," he was talking about love and peace and understanding.
I cherished every one of his books, and I dearly wish he had written more.
Maybe if you had experienced even a little bit of the '60s you might feel the same way, too.
