SHOULDN'T HOLY MOTHER CHURCH SHOW MERCY TO CELEBRITIES AND MEDIA NEWS CELEBRITIES AND THOSE IN THE MEDIA INDUSTRY WHO WERE MERCILESS TOWARD THE CATHOLIC CHURCH WHEN CATHOLICS, BOTH LAITY AND CLERGY DID THE SAME THING?

In other words, celebrities and media figures could learn from today's Holy Mother Church! I would recommend Virtus trading for all of "Hollywood and New York" elites!

One by one, actors seeking separation from Woody Allen

NEW YORK — A growing number of actors are distancing themselves from Woody Allenand his next film in a Hollywood newly sensitive to allegations of sexual misconduct.

Timothee Chalamet on Tuesday said he will donate his salary for an upcoming Allen film to three charities fighting sexual harassment and abuse: Time’s Up, the LGBT Center in New York and RAINN. The breakout star of Call Me By Your Name announced on Instagram that he didn’t want to profit from his work on Allen’s A Rainy Day in New York, which wrapped shooting in the fall.

“I want to be worthy of standing shoulder to shoulder with the brave artists who are fighting for all people to be treated with the respect and dignity they deserve,” said Chalamet.

He didn’t want to profit from his work on Allen’s A Rainy Day in New York, which wrapped shooting in the fall.

“I want to be worthy of standing shoulder to shoulder with the brave artists who are fighting for all people to be treated with the respect and dignity they deserve,” said Chalamet.

Chalamet is just the latest cast member of an Allen production to express regret or guilt about being professionally associated with the director. In recent weeks, Rebecca Hall(A Rainy Day in New YorkVicky Cristina Barcelona), Mira Sorvino (Mighty Aphrodite), Ellen Page (To Rome With Love), David Krumholtz (Wonder Wheel) and Griffith Newman (A Rainy Day in New York) have all in some way distanced themselves from Allen or vowed that they wouldn’t work with him again.

The rising chorus suggests the road ahead for Allen may be particularly challenging, even for a director whose personal controversies have for decades made him an alternatively beloved and reviled figure in movies.

Damon apologizes after backlash to comments

NEW YORK — Matt Damon says the backlash for his comments on sexual misconduct was helpful.
Weeks ago, Damon told outlets that there were varying degrees of misconduct and that the punishment should reflect that. But he was criticized by some, including ex-girlfriend Minnie Driver.
In an interview with the AP on Tuesday, Damon said he wishes he had listened more before offering his thoughts, and that he “doesn’t want to further anybody’s pain.”

He said he’s sorry and added that the feedback on his comments has been “very helpful.”

How can you be merciful to someone who doesn’t want mercy. Does anyone really believe that these movie stars are sorry for what they have done or enabled others to do for decades? I am sure they are very sorry they got caught but ARE they sorry for what they have done. Those filthy arrogant Hollywood perverts were the first to be judge jury and not only to condem but actively try to destroy the Church over the pediphile scandal. Justice would seem to demand that they acknowledge that what they have condemed others for they themselves had and probably are still doing. I am not in any way excusing what happened in the Church. What were those bishops thinking! But I am not about to fall all over and cry for a bunch of phony self righteous millionaires who pontificate more than the pope (not of course Francis who is never quiet).
