That is ridiculous, turn on a TV, and watch all of the positive Catholic characters and leaders, and situations, from positive, heroic Nuns on Law and Order, to family priests like the Everybody loves Raymond church, Catholic is almost the only church on TV, unless the character is to be backwards and bigoted, and stupid.
This movie is just coming out, Hollywood often makes Catholicism very positive. Like I say, the hero is always a Catholic, can you imagine the troubled detective or conflicted hit man going to his Evangelical Southern Baptist minister?
There is more to tv than Everybody lovesRaymond and Law & Order. I have seen Law & Order where the priests are either nothing, nobodies or confused, never as smart as anyone else. They are necessary there because many criminals and victims are Latino and therefore Catholics, obviously nominal.
I think YOU are dead wrong, though I have to admit I DON'T watch Everyone loves Raymond. I've been watching tv and movies since the 1949 or 1950 where we got our first T.V. Catholics as good guys?? Please. Catholic rules are WAY too strict for the godless Hollywoodians, WAY too strict. The Church is against abortion, artifician contraception, porngraphy, drugs, adultery, divorce, fornication, and on and on and on--HOLLYWOOD incarnate, that is. How CAN you say that SUDDENLY the organization that has condemned Hollyweird behavior as long as there HAS been a Hollywood, is NOW being portrayed positively? NOT A CHANCE.
