The God Of Oz

I have always loved the Wizard of Oz!
Yeah, yeah, I know what that's supposed to signify!
That's why only a few people know it's one of my all time faves.
However, whenever I've heard the movie mentioned in relation to, or by, those of a less mainstream sexual preference, it has been alongside phrases akin to 'The path of Dorothy' etc. I suspect that the movie's thinly veiled 'Be who you are' and 'You're as strong as you need to be' message, is what grabs those who love Dorothy but, not having been born on that tram, I'm of course only guessing.
My own personal magic moment in the movie relates to another aspect of the 'ownership of self' themes I believe it explores. As you may have guessed if you've read previous posts, my 'Dorothy' moment comes when she comprehends that the 'Great and Powerful Wizard of Oz', isn't a wizard at all!
I first saw the Wizard of Oz in the cinema, when Mum and Dad took my brother and I. I'd have been about 6.
For me the seed of atheism, though not comprehended fully, was planted...
The moment you choose to see beyond the smoke and mirrors and take a look behind the curtain at how things work, reality is revealed.
"For Wizard... Read God! For Smoke and Mirrors... Read Heaven!"
God was dead?
It was that simple but it took me another decade
to bury the bastard!
