Words on Librul Hollywood Blasphemy

From the AP:

Rome's diocese said Monday it has barred the producers of "Angels & Demons" from filming in two churches for the prequel to the "The Da Vinci Code" the popular book and film that angered many Catholic leaders.

Producers of the film, directed by Ron Howard and starring Tom Hanks, were turned down because the movie "does not conform to our views," said Monsignor Marco Fibbi, a spokesman for the diocese.

The crew had asked to film in the churches of Santa Maria del Popolo and Santa Maria della Vittoria, two architectural jewels in the heart of Rome that include paintings by Caravaggio, sculptures by Bernini and a chapel designed by Raphael.
Permission was denied in 2007, but the issue surfaced only now that filming is ongoing in Rome, Fibbi said. The Sony-produced film was put on hold during the Writers Guild of America strike that ended in February and is now scheduled for release in May 2009.

Fibbi's comments first were reported this week by the Italian entertainment magazine "TV Sorrisi e Canzoni." "It's a film that treats religious issues in a way that contrasts with common religious sentiment," Fibbi told The Associated Press in a telephone interview. "We would be helping them create a work that might well be beautiful but that does not conform to our views."




We congratulate the fans of that comic book called the Holy Bible on their influence.

No one paid any attention to us when Tim Burton and Joel Schumacher refused to respect DC Comics doctrine when they decided to tell lies to our children that the Joker killed Batman's parents and Harvey "Two-Face" Dent killed Robin's. No one cared when we led hunger strikes against the movie studios when they cast Alicia Silverstone as Batgirl making her blond instead of red-haired the way it has been told to us in the scriptures.

But in the end, it is the Batman and the Justice Leaugue of America that they will have to answer to.

Question high priest. Is it Blasphemy to want to do batgirl? Just wondering?

JDB said...

Ah, I see. So when it comes right down to the important stuff - throwing your weight around - all you comic book fans are all the same. I'm so disillusioned!

I consider Schumacher to be an Anti-Director and his works to be non-canonical and should be subjected to a violent purging under the Subcommander of the Doctrine of the True Faith (office currently shared by the hawt Bajoran from TNG and the Red Tornado).

Chris, that's brilliant. Subcommander of the Doctrine of True Faith- that's the only cabinet member a president needs.

JDB, we're not the same as the other comic book fans. What makes us different is that we follow the Truth and they do not. Hollywood can make all the movies they want about Moses and Noah and we don't care about the accuracy. But when they are portraying the one true Batgirl, they better get their shit correct and check with us before it's released.

Truth Seeker,

The answer to question can be found in Kill Bill 1 when Beatrix Kiddo introduces us to Gogo Yubari during the scene where Gogo is swilling down a bottle of wine and talking to man about Ferrari trash.

Ananke,

We are currently considering you for the position of Subcommander of the Doctrine of True Faith once we get one of own pious candidates elected to office.

Personally I would like to see a Batman movie filmed in the Sistine Chapel. Then we would see who's tougher than god.
