American Family Association’s “Action Alert” newsletter recently denounced Robert Redford’s Sundance Institute. The Films “Houndog” and “Zoo” were cited for their aggressive immorality. But the newsletter is not so much about the films, or the Sundance Institute, but about the supporters of the enterprise–the American people, that is, the American tax dollars.
Says the Alert: “The National Endowment for the Arts gave between $100,000 and $249,000 to help underwrite the festival, and the Public Broadcasting System (PBS) gave between $50,000 and $99,999.”
The news letter ultimately requests concerned citizens to write congressmen, and cut off the funding, not from the Sundance Institute, but from the NEA and PBS.
