Ron Howard, claims Catholics will like "Angels and Demons"

Ron Howard thinks Catholics will enjoy his upcoming film, "Angels and Demons"

. . .and then slams Bill Donohue for saying they won't, in my favorite blog, The Huffington Post.

"Mr. Donohue's booklet accuses us of lying when our movie trailer says the Catholic Church ordered a brutal massacre to silence the Illuminati centuries ago. It would be a lie if we had ever suggested our movie is anything other than a work of fiction (if it were a documentary, our talk of massacres would have referenced the Inquisition or the Crusades). And if fictional movies could never take liberties with reality, then there would have been no Ben-Hur, no Barabbas, The Robe, Gone With The Wind, or Titanic. Not to mention Splash!"

Hey Opie, that little mention of the Inquisition and the Crusades is classic anti-Catholic trash talk. I'm giving you a pass this time because I know that you were raised in Hollywood, but if you really want to avoid seeming anti-Catholic, better leave that out next time.

AND stop the nonsense about "it's only fiction". We heard that before with "The DaVinci Code", and we're not buying it now either.
