cross-posted from A Catholic View

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.’ It sure is Dan. 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.

Well, that cinches it. Not only does Bill Donohue say that Angels & Demons is anti-Catholic, but some guy in the Angels & Demons film crew told some priest spy in mufti who hung around them for two days that Dan Brown & everyone else hated the Catholic Church.

Case closed.

Set your ignorance aside, see the small asides, the unnecessary pokes and prods, and then argue the film not anti-Catholic. Of course, I don't expect Ron Howard to come out and admit it--but it doesn't take an atheist to see that there is an anti-Catholic tone to this film. It doesn't surprise me that Hollywood is anti-Catholic though--given its other... dispositions.
