I believe that Frank and Dora are equally responsible. Dora is a devout Christian, who shared her beliefs with her son. Her husband is the exact opposite and publicly criticized his wife. None-the-less, both parents are controlling, and their confining methods of parenting made Alan feel a lack of freedom. He looked to his newfound religion as a means of achieving this fulfillment.

Society is to blame as it wants a uniformity. Society does not accept anyone that is not classified as "normal". But, what is normal?
