Lakeland, Florida (AP) --
A central Florida church and several members of a local school board are expressing their concern about a Busch Gardens Halloween show.
At a news conference Thursday, October 14 the youth pastor of Ignited
Church said the featured scene of the theme park's Howl-O-Scream
show promotes revenge and violence.
The skit, "Revenge Rocks," tells the story of a young woman
who becomes the girlfriend of a grunge rock singer. He betrays her
and she takes over the band.
The audience learns that she has imprisoned him and severed his
fingers before murdering him.
In a letter, the church asked that the park reconsider the theme
of its show.
Busch Gardens said its Halloween show is intended for adults and
only as entertainment.
