just hear me out, okay? “This film is nothing more than a moral vacuum with a deviant message and as such should be of concern…twilight combines a mixture of excesses that, as ever, is aimed at young people and gives a heavy esoteric element.” Franco Perazzolo, Vatican’s culture council leader.
1. The pope condemns Twilight! 2. Why does the Vatican issue statements about movies? That come out of Hollywood? For efficiency they could pretty safely condemn everything coming out of Hollywood. Instead they have a person whose job it is to issue statements every time something comes out that has a “heavy esoteric element”? 3. What the hell does that mean? 4. I know what it means, but in this situation, is esoteric really the appropriate word? 5. I am now going to see it. I live for the heavy esoteric elements.
