Utah Town Burns Copies Of Footloose And Bans Dancing


Lehi, Utah- Local church officials and city goverment met at the local library and began burning vinyl records, picture disc, beta max, 8-Tracks and VHS copies of Footloose.


Shaw Moore claims “The music in this movie is just too dark rebellious. I, mean… Almost Paradise could summon demons from the darkest depths of hell.”


The city council moved to ban dancing and loud music.


“We will tolerate any break dancing in this town.” Said, Nephi Bangeter. Local plant manager of The Lehi Roller Mills.


Local activist Ren McCormack said, “I’m leaving town and never looking back. I fought this kind of tyranny over 30 years ago and I don’t have the strength to do it again. I’d probably just end up breaking a hip.”


Ariel Moore, the Reverand Moore’s daughter  was arrested for showing too much shoulder and her vulgar t-shirts.

We will keep you posted as this story unfolds. Local Lehi teens feel like we have taken one step forward and two steps back. No dance moves intended.
