So last night I went to finally watch Frisbee: The Life And Death Of A Hippie Preacher, the 2005 documentary that came out on Netflix a few weeks ago that I was really excited to see because it’s about how this hippie guy named Lonnie Frisbee started the Jesus Movement and then was kicked out for being gay and the evangelicals tried to cover up his existence. But a funny thing happened: the DVD didn’t work. That happens with Netflix movies about 20% of the time, but when I examined the disc, it was scratched in a way I’ve never seen a DVD scratched: it has a perfectly straight, perfectly smooth deep scratch as if someone had deliberately vandalized it with a razor blade. Suspicious:
Okay, so I admit it’s really unlikely that The Megachurch Industrial Complex is razoring Netflix copies of the movie that reveals their secret origins, but this didn’t happen (unfortunately) with P.S. I Love You. It happened with a movie that has this tagline:
What do you do when the Jesus freak who starts your church dies from AIDS?
Simple. Erase him from history.
I’m going to Netflix Frisbee again, and if it’s scratched again I swear to god, I’m going to blow the lid off this huge gigantic DaVinci Code-like conspiracy.
