The bishops' office does that pretty frequently, actually.
Not only that, but they rarely blast or even point out the anti-Catholicism that permeates so many movies today.
So now I'm calling for the bishops to close their film rating office. Shut it down. Declare a moratorium.
Do not reopen the office until after the non-liberal bishops have searched for and hired reviewers who offer their full, free and wholehearted assent to Catholic morality about films and who will give evil movies the rating they deserve.
Giving space to a vile, morally offensive movie, spelling out its slime and then giving it a rating of less than "Morally Offensive" legitimizes the making of such movies and Catholics' viewing of them.
You might remember that the US bishops' film office gave an initially positive review to the homosexual-agenda propaganda movie "Brokeback Mountain" a couple of years ago.
They have just done something similar.
Wouldn't you think the U.S. bishops' film office would give a rating of "O" ("Morally Offensive") to a homosexual-agenda propaganda movie that shows "brief scenes of homosexual activity," such as homosexual men kissing, "nongraphic encounters" and "rear male nudity?"
Sure, you would. Me, too.
Well, the U.S. bishops' film office does NOT think so.
LifeSiteNews.com reports (click on this post's title) that the USCCB film office has given a rating of not "O" but of "L" ("Limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling") to -- but has written a positive review of -- the new film "Milk," a bio of the assassinated San Francisco politician Harvey Milk, an avowed homosexual.
The film is said to stress that the assassin was Catholic.
True, rating the film "L" is better than rating it A-I, A-II or A-III. But when the bishops' office couples that rating with a positive review, you can see the problem.
I can't bring myself to provide a direct link to the U.S. bishops' office review, but the LifeSiteNews.com story does have the link.
The LSN story also has the contact information for Chicago Archbishop Francis George, the USCCB president, in case anyone wants to (politely) complain to him.
Shut down the bishops' film rating office. Now.
