The Vatican is bland, they must be angry at Avatar because it's better than them.

I believe that the Vatican does not encourage thinking. Could start a dangerous precedent.

Maybe the Vatican would prefer the worship of little boys :P

They made a free headline, good for them I suppose.

Catholics?

Are they the ones who recommend out-breeding over populations?

"The Vatican newspaper and radio station are criticizing James Cameron's 3D blockbuster for flirting with the idea that worship of nature can replace religion - a notion the pope has warned against."


Right. It's a movie, the pope thought this was real?
And in any case, what's his problem, he'd like the Inquistion to come back. You will worship how we say or else.........

That wouldn't be a crime against nature would it?

It is hard to simultaneously worship nature and allow unnatural acts.

The Vatican lads know it is a hoax and they want the masses to stay in ignorance.

And they seem to oblige,by being nice and gullible.

Great life style for the top echelon.

its not very often we get a movie review from the Vatican.
that in itself show that this movie is more than the normal Hollywood stuff.



did I miss the Vatican's press release about transformers II ??

if this movie was so 'bland' then why did the Vatican even bother to say anything.

I wonder if the Vatican watched the Battlestar Galactica 2004 series. There was alot of references to god. I think the cylons said that they were god.
