I don't care if someone wants to promote what they think are good values if they can back them up, but I don't always read a book (and certainly don't watch a movie) to get a lesson in moral philosophy.

Hm. Now that I think about it, a lot of books I've read do have some amount of philosophy in them. Like, not Socrates, but musings on life and things like that. I guess that doesn't bother me because it's usually coming from a character or narrator or some other source that fits in with the story and I know that it's there to help flesh out the character or story. Or at least that's what it's there for primarily.

Yeah, I guess it comes down to context. If a moral isn't presented to me in a heavy-handed way I'm okay with it, but I'd rather just try to get your moral from the story.
