Better Color Purple Promotion?

Julie and I just went to baptism class. Yes, they have a class for baptizing your child. Catholics love class. Anyway, the 2 hour lecture wasn’t really that informative, but the one thing that did grab our attention was the woman telling us her favorite line from the Color Purple. Somebody says “God’s going to be pissed if you walk past and don’t enjoy the color purple”. Something like that. Um, OK great – get what you are saying. God puts the color purple on this earth so we stop and smell the roses (or the color purple). Um, if you were a marketing person – wouldn’t you have used that for the broadway musical? “God would be pissed if you don’t enjoy The Color Purple“.
