"Angels & Demons" - The DaVinci Code Sequel; Anti-Catholic to the Core!

Catholic League president Bill Donohue exposes the anti-Catholic agenda of “Angels & Demons” (the movie opens May 15):

“John Calley, co-producer with Brian Grazer of both ‘The Da Vinci Code’ and ‘Angels & Demons,’ told the New York Times that the former movie was ‘conservatively anti-Catholic.’ According to the Times, Grazer wants ‘Angels & Demons’ to be ‘less reverential’ than ‘The Da Vinci Code.’ Which means he wants it to be liberally anti-Catholic.

“Author Dan Brown says of his latest film, ‘It’s certainly not anti-Catholic.’ So could it be that he simply finds Catholicism fascinating, and loves to weave dramatic tales about it, harboring no animus whatsoever? The evidence suggests otherwise.

“Besides the fact that both producers admit their films are anti-Catholic, we now know, thanks to Father Bernard O’Connor, that their sentiments are typical of those working on the latest movie. O’Connor hung out with the film crew last summer for two days when they were filming in Rome; he was dressed casually, so no one knew he was a priest.

“A person self-described as a ‘production official,’ told the Canadian priest that Brown spoke for the majority of those working on the movie when he said, ‘Like most of us, he [Brown] often says that he would do anything to demolish that detestable institution, the Catholic Church.’ He credited the media for the ‘demise’ of the Church. This same person opined that the Catholic Church ‘is humanity’s chief enemy,’ adding that this sentiment is reflective of those in Hollywood.

“So the cat is out of the bag. We will soon publish a booklet I wrote that will give the public all the evidence it needs to learn how demonic ‘Angels & Demons’ really is. If anyone associated with the movie wants to debate me on anything I’ve said, I would be glad to do so.”

WHAT? Say it isn't so! A work of fiction is (gasp!) fiction, and may contain things that are not true? Shocker. Who ever thought that a work of fiction might be, well...fictionalized? This is stunning!

Psssst. I think you're about five years behind in the news here.

Hey Rich,
How about if Hollywood makes a movie about your family and exagerates its problems and makes up untruths about your mother. Generally painting your family in a very unflattering way because the producers have a bone to pick with it. Almost everything in this movie is negative and false exept for the names of course. How would you feel about that? Before you answer, remember, it is only fiction.

Check out "The Protocols of the Elders of Zion", a bogus document created by the Czarist Secret Police in the 19th century. It still circulates.

It purports to lay the blame for just kabout everything on a fictitious Jewish conspiracy. Hitler used it. Millions died.

Good point Ray.

It would be a lot easier to be concerned about Anti-Catholic propaganda if the knee-jerk apologists for the Catholic Church would sometimes acknowledge some of the church's failings over the years.
