OH, TO HAVE A YOUNG, TRADITIONALIST, CATHOLIC POPE, BUT MAYBE NOT THIS ONE

After all it is fiction but do viewers of drama have the good sense to distinguish between fiction and truth. The show is silly but nicely filmed and acted. But here is another critique that is more sinister:

I watched some of the episodes and it's a bizarre show. A lot of false information disseminated as well. I like Jude Law but this is not one of his better performances

But would it be acceptable to have a show where Muslims are portrayed as villains? Hollywood hypocrisy at work. Bigotry against Catholics- the only acceptable form of bigotry since 1970.

Before Vatican Disaster II Hollywood portrayed Catholicism with great respect: Bells of St. Mary's, Going My Way, etc. Do you think the Democrat Party would be promoting abortion and gay marriage if the Catholic Church today were as powerful as it was before the Council? Dishonest bishops and clerics ignore this because it points to their pathetic leadership.

TJM,

Good point, but in fairness, the Freemasons had made great strides in undermining the Faith in European and Latin American nations before VCII.

Dialogue,

I never understood the fascination with Freemasonry. Kind of a silly organization, something Bugnini would be attracted to for some reason since he lost his faith in God
