Vatican Not Avatar Fans

The Vatican did not give a glowing review to the mega-smash hit Avatar. Anti-establishment
What did they not like about it? They claimed that movie was:

“simplistic in its plot … superficial in its eco-message, despite groundbreaking visual effects.”

Funny, that’s pretty much my exact criticism of the Catholic Church. Except for the special effects. Really, beyond the robes and incense what have they got? And lots of religions have those.

But, all that stuff is pretty minor. It doesn’t really seem like anything a church would go out of it’s way to talk about, does it? What else have they got to say?

“Perhaps more significantly, the Vatican takes the movie to task for flirting with what it says is the worship of nature as a substitute for religion.”

Aw, they showed a non-Catholic religion. Excellent. Us good, them bad. Nice to know the church is as deep as always.

Actually, what they showed in Avatar is a religion in which there was actually something there to worship. It was a bit on the midi-chlorine side, though a bit easier to swallow. So, is that what really got them? Avatar’s fictional religion being more believable that Christianity? This is the 21st century, we expect our religions to have lights and make beep beep noises.

    hahahah… perfect!!!
    I love that these deluded shaman protest movies out of fear they will draw away sheeple from their cult.

    The amount of time and effort they devote to total idiocy is astonishing. Imagine if all the time, money and effort they put toward religious supernatural stupidity was actually put toward genuine contributions to the natural world.
    What a waste.
