Kitten Has A Cause


Heather Veitch, a buxom bleach blonde, looks like your typical fantasy stripper. And she is a former stripper — and a committed Christian evangelist. The two aren't mutually exclusive; to Veitch, her past and her present allow her to potentially minister to women in the sex trade with an understanding and empathy that not everyone possesses. And many of these "fallen" women, as the Bible calls them, respond to Veitch's message and join Pastor Matt Brown's flock. Every good Christian is happy when another soul is saved, right? Shockingly, many non-sex workers in the flock don't want anything to do with these hardcore sinners. Apparently their careers and choices mean they're past the point of salvation — or maybe they can be saved, but they don't have the right to find it in a "Christian" church. Bill Day's documentary Pussycat Preacher chronicles Veitch and Pastor Brown's attempts to save the souls of confirmed sinners and unknowing sinners alike. The film screens at 7:30 p.m. as part of the Burning Fuse Traveling Film Festival at Webster University's Moore Auditorium (470 East Lockwood Avenue; 314-968-7487 or Tickets are $5 to $6.
