Should we seek statements on this from catholic priests?

Catholic Abbot Christopher Jamison of West Sussex attacks Disney this weekend.
While he acknowledges that Disney stories carry messages showing good triumphing over evil, he argues this is part of a ploy to persuade people that they should buy Disney products in order to be "a good and happy family".
Now I can hardly point out that this is very similar to the church itself! More and more the bible has been recognized as not being literal but being stories of imagery and imagination to highlight moral ends. I also do not need to point out how the Catholic Church and the Vatican get paid handsomely for these ends. So where is the difference?

Full story here:

It is hardly for the Church to accuse anyone of corrupting Children. Especially not after this document here:
http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2003/au ... tion/print
Which showed that the Vatican told bishops to cover up sex abuse.
The 69-page Latin document bearing the seal of Pope John XXIII was sent to every bishop in the world. The instructions outline a policy of 'strictest' secrecy in dealing with allegations of sexual abuse and threatens those who speak out with excommunication.
I wonder if in the light of this old document, should we demand catholic clergy in ireland make a statement about this weekends statement from Jamison.

The very least they should say is that, although they might not want to attack the churchs position or support disneys, they should at least be willing to acknowledge that they do not have ANY credentials upon which to be making comments of this sort _at all_

This is nothing new. Walt Disney was an atheist.

http://www.wayoflife.org/fbns/fridaynew ... 50610.html
Walt Disney was an atheist and his cartoons prepared generations of children to think that witches are innocent fun and that there is such a thing as “white magic” and “good sorcery.” Recent examples of Disney movies that preach a New Age Gospel are the Lion King, Pocahontas, and the 1994 movie Squanto: A Warrior’s Tale. The main message of Squanto is this: The Indians worship the same Creator God as the Christians and in fact have more to teach the Christians about morality than the Christians them. In the end, the pagan Indian teaches the Pilgrims to live in peace and to be compassionate.

Thanks for that link, FXR.
I'm currently enjoying their END TIMES APOSTASY ONLINE DATABASE

I'm intrigued to see that they list Animal Rights as something that will ensure your passage to eternal damnation, but they seemed to have missed out Atheists altogether.

You don't supposed we're on the Saved list? :shock:

Mind you, I'm thrice damned for "believing" in such atrocities as Evolution, Female Leadership and Computers.

Michael G, you haven't been forgotten. Roman Catholics are also on the eternally damned list just for good measure. :lol:

Eating seafood is evil (Leviticus 11:10)

Yeh just told me in another thread that you only went off atheists because they fart during sex and the Catholics did'nt. That would make you not so much a Catholic as a Knobolic..... 8)
