    How liberal of them. Hopefully they'll stop being dumb bigots as well.

    Really? Since when is the pope a polytheist?
    I have my doubts about the veracity of this.

    From what I understand, it's the just the title of a movie review written in the Vatican newspaper, in clear reference to the story in Greek mythology. Earth shattering I know!

    I'd actually figured that. Although its not just the Vatican press which liberals give that treatment to, there's a couple of the posts and most of the opinions which I think arrive hot of the headlines in the tabloids.

    I'm actually tempted to find out what the review says, I liked that movie, didnt take that message away from it though.

    Our local redemptorist publication's reviews section got took over by some ultra hardline media hater lately, I think the got reprimanded for a number of things but among others their reviews section, I think following complaints.

    So the movie Brave, an animated feature which is either from or similar to a Disney Pixar, got roundly condemned and contained a warning about nudity!! (I think one of the characters runs past with a bare bottom at some point) Its a bit mad because I used to like their reviews when they were more balanced, they did warn about swearing, violence, family conflict that sort of thing which may not register as a concern for anyone but when I picked films for the young people I work with it was useful (the age rating was useless, films rated 12 would have content which was definitely 15 years ago and often had innuendo or sexualised content which could seriously trigger some inappropriate behaviour). Now it just feels a little like the reviewer doesnt own or like TV or films per se.

    I actually checked the newspaper's website, and couldn't find it. Supposedly it's only in Italian.

    It gets worse then! There's no way at all of telling if this wasnt completely made up by some village idiot.
