More anticatholic garbage excreted by Hollywood and intentionally released before Christmas to maximally offend! This would never be tolerated by the Jews or Muslims!
Newsday loves to cover this stuff, and that's the reason why so many of us boycott ANTICATHOLIC Newsday!!

This review is another P-O-S. The only movies that have good reviews these days are movies that feature and promote homosexual lifestyles, anti-Christian sentiment (rampant priesthood molestation, et al), hollywood toil, teenage sex, black struggles, US Military transgressions, and films with an underlying anti-American message.

Suffice to say we are sick of it all. How about some bloody red American proganda films...in the style of Frank Capra? Know your enemy.

Yes! I agree, especially the, "right before Christmas" part. I guess it's called social "collateral damage". The homosexuals in Hollywood are, most likely, really PO'd about the recent events in Gay Marriage Ban there in California.

Contact the USCCB and ask them why they continue to allow Harry Forbes of their Office Of Film and Broadcasting to continue to give good reviews to trash like this. "Milk" and "Broke Back Mountain" among them. BBM was given a glowing review by him, before complaints by faithful Catholics. If the Church doesn't condemn garbage like this, why should anyone expect the same of the anti-Catholic Newsday?

I went to Catholic school for 12 years. The nuns were not like this. As a matter of fact, they were probably too deferrential, submissive, obedient and respectful of the priests. They were put on a pedastil. It wasn't good for the priest or anyone else in light of what we know now. They were treated as more than human.

IMO it is unfair to depict the nuns like this. They were near sainthood in my experience. They put up with being virtual SLAVES for the church. They offered up to God the pain of being taken advantage of and did their work unto the Lord. We didn't even have to study, they were such great teachers and workers in the classroom, drilling us daily on lessons, finding creative ways to teach us.

In some ways, I believe the problems of the church today are a result of the treatment of the nuns in the fifties.

It all has to do with the worship of Mammon. The dollar. Money. Homosexuals are workaholics. They do beautiful outstanding work. That is why they are catered to.

This will top the movie charts if it already hasn't I enjoyed the intensity and moral dilemmas in this film.

I Hyped Doubt on Everhype and gave it 90% which I think is fairly accurate.

Let's not forget the Vatican Bank's refusal to disclose certain account holders and their money laundering revenues.

Sorry, but until there is full disclosure of this institution's dealings, there will be critisism.

When you see the enoumous wealth they protect in vaults in Vatican City, Zurich, Geneva and Luxembourg while they allow 3rd world CATHOLIC countries to rot, it makes your skin crawl.

Btw, no one can accuse the church of being anti-g@/y. One need only look at The Swiss Guard - a pack of gun toting poofs - to know that it is, in fact, tolerated.

Pack of hypocrites.

There's a reason why this time of year is called "the Christmas viewing season." Thanks to the Christian faith, this is the time that most people in the west take their vacations and have leisure time...and thus go to the cinema.

Those who complain about the release of this film at Christmas seem to forget that this and - surprise!- Easter time are when people go to the movies.

So much for a g@/y, liberal conspiracy theory.

Just do the math, people.
