Anti-Catholic insults rife in 'A Very Harold and Kumar 3D Christmas'----lesbian nuns, topless angels, playboy Jesus all add insult to injury

\"\"


I'm not one to scream anti-Catholic too often but the new movie "A Very Harold and Kumar 3D Christmas" screams insult at every turn.

It is unfortunately on your screens now.

Worse, the main actor Kal Penn, who plays a stoner, is a former senior official in the Obama administration -- I kid you not. Penn was associate director of the White House Office of Public Engagement.

The plot includes lesbian nuns, abusive priests, topless angels, and a Playboy version of Jesus.

I'm game for a laugh as much as the next guy, but the offense to Catholic sensibilities, especially at this time of year is gratuitous and demeaning

The plot also involves an attempt to have sex with a teenage virgin named Mary, so no prizes for guessing who is the target here as well.

Of course, nothing is sacred to Hollywood types when it comes to anti-Catholic movies.

However, great care is always taken to ensure that other religions, such as Judaism or Islam are never portrayed in any offensive way in films

Why are Catholics the last great group that can be mercilessly mocked?

As I say I am not going to see anti-Catholicism under every Hollywood tree but this latest insult is certainly par for the course.

One wonders what image of our religion will young persons come away with after seeing this trailer trash.

Let's hope, like diarrhea, it passes quickly.
