Just watched 3 billboards outside Ebbing Missouri, and thought it was a great movie, but one scene pissed me off. Comparing the catholic church to a cripps gang , the fact that a priest belongs to the catholic church, he is partially responsible or apart of some pedofile agenda, even though he had nothing to do with it and as a whole the percentage of mistreatment is so low, in the catholic church. The way the scene was played out, basically a catholic, and there are millions of us, should feel ashamed that we belong to a church. What angers me is that there are so many movies from hollywood that love to bash on catholics. Not anglicans but catholics, and the people behind the script and directing it are jewish americans. Now i have no issues with jewish people, this is strictly a hollywood thing. What i'm trying to understand is why there is this agenda? What has pissed them off so much that they want to show off catholics in a nagative light? Also in the movie they made references not so nice to mexicans/mexico, which happens to be a catholic country. Yet the african americans got so much love in this film. I hope oneday this shit ends, and people take more notice and do something about it.
I'm not religious (was technically raised Catholic but I'm not exactly "practicing"), and I'm not crazy about the Catholics myself, especially with all the sexual misconduct with a lot of the priests. But at the same time there are plenty of well meaning Catholics who just want something to believe in and have morals to live by, my dad being one of them. It's not really my thing, but if it works for people, cool. I don't get why people feel the need to shit on groups who (at least the majority of) are just living their lives and minding their business. People just have to innate tribalism built into them of "us vs them" I guess..
Anyway, who cares what Hollywood says/portrays. They've kind of become like a church themselves in many ways ironically.. I don't pay Hollywood any attention, especially since its recently been revealed that they have their OWN sex scandals and misconduct over there. They're mostly just self righteous rich snobs who live in their bubble while looking down on and lecturing Americans, especially middle America and those who don't conform to their far left "progressive" views. I think fewer and fewer people are listening to them these days.
