A woman battered by her preacher husband goes to a dirty magazine publisher for help.
Reverend Peter Jacobs is a minister in a small Alabama town, but most people do not realize he is a wifebeater behind closed doors. His wife Amanda seeks refuge in the most unlikely of places.
She goes to Charlie Sanders, the publisher of a dirty magazine, and he does everything to try and get her help. But it comes at a cost when a scandal ensues in a small community where these thing don't happen.
Reverend Peter Jacobs, a middle-aged, well-dressed man in his fifties, stood behind his pulpit at The First Church of Dothan.His congregation, full of white Christian conservatives looked bloated or had fallen asleep as he listened to
the peaceful hymns of the church choir. He stood with his right hand on the Holy Bible while his left hand contained copies of the latest issue of the filthy Culture Magazine. He waited for the choir to finish their hymn, and then
began his sermon.
''My children, what’s in my left-hand today are copies of the latest issue of Culture Magazine.'' he said. ''It’s a dirty magazine published by a newcomer to our community named Charlie Sanders.''
The congregation was wide-eyed, apparently appalled atwhat they saw before them. The beacon of sin known as Culture Magazine, would strike fear every parent, teacher, and authority figure in the small town of Dothan,Alabama was as obscene and as profane as anything by George Carlin or Richard Pryor.
''What kind of culture is this smut peddler teaching our young people?''
He flipped through the magazine, through various nude pinups ofwomen before pulling out a full frontal nude poster.up the page for the congregation to see.The congregation gasped at what they saw displayed, a depiction of a woman’s bare breasts. This kind of filth didn’t need to be seen by impressionable young adults in a small town within the Bible belt Jacobs noticed they were disgusted by these displays of pornography There was one woman looked like she was about to puke in her purse.The congregation quieted as the sound of her vomit erupted. Jacobs watched a member help her exit the pew and lead her toward the water fountain.
The vomit disgusted Jacobs, but he continued with his sermon. ''Aside from the nude layouts, there are feature articles on abortion,
gay marriage, and lesbian homosexuality.''
An unwed pregnant woman cheeks flushed a bright red just before she tipped her head down. Two women who sat together every Sunday on the same pew sunk lower in their seats to avoid being spotted, but Jacobs caught them none the less. More
sinners to extract confessions from, the filthy dykes. They deserved God’s wrath and by the Lord’s strong hand he’d give it to them until they turned from their wicked ways.
''And most horrendous of all, there’s a caricature of
Michael Jackson dressed as a minister molesting a young boy''utteredJacobs righteously.
Some people in the front pews burst out laughing They stopped when Jacobs gave them an angry
At the Reverend’s signal a clergyman passed out copies of Culture Magazine. Based on the gasps he heard, the congregation was disgusted at what they saw. A rich old lady in the second pew looked appalled at a photo of a young girl in her twenties who flashed her breasts in a pinup. Her wealthy husband had his copy of the magazine on the same page. He wore a big smile on his face as if he’d gotten an erection from looking at the nude photos. Further back, a poor widowed mine worker passed copies of the magazines out to his young sons, who gawked and laughed at the photos. A middle class housewife took the magazines away from her children while her husband ogled the photos. The housewife slapped her husband in the back of the head. Another household that needed a firm hand in following the Lord’s will. The husband had to clean his mind of smut and the wife needed a lesson in showing the head
of the household proper respect.
''This magazine is an abomination to our society and is
ruining the wholesome image of our little community here in Alabama.'' he said. ''We need to stand up to this kind of filth and we need to stand up to it now!''
The congregation cheered Jacobs. He was ready to lead his Christian soldiers in the community’s fight to preserve the area’s moral decency Jacobs wouldn’t take this laying down. When the sermon was over the congregation exited the church. Jacobs shook the hands of the parishioners, noting the congregation had a reaction mixed between laughter and disgust. He prayed it would move them from just being passive members of a congregation to being active crusaders for the Christian majority in this quaint small town.After the flock had dispersed, Jacobs and a fellow clergyman had drinks behind the church The day, already extraordinarily hot, needed refreshment of a stouter variety than cold water.
''How do you plan to handle that sick bastard?'' asked the old man.
''Get WTVY and The Dothan Eagle on the phone and I'll show you how to handle him.'' replied Jacobs.
Jacobs took hold of the clergyman's hand and shook it in a vigorous fashion. They were ready to take down this smut peddler and they weren’t about to let anything stop them from accomplishing what they set out to do. This filthy pornographer needed to be taught a lesson and they were determined to give him what they both felt he deserved.
