Vatican condemns Twilight series as “deviant”


Twihards: the Vatican has its eyes on you. This week, the Catholic church slammed New Moon, the latest installment in the Twilight series, calling it “nothing more than a moral vacuum with a deviant message.” In particular, Church spokeman Monsignor Franco Perazzolo attacked the film for its occult imagery, describing New Moon’s many vampires and werewolves as a “moral void more dangerous than any deviant message.” The criticism of Twilight follows similar anti-pop culture crusades by the Church in recent years, such as its condemnations of the Harry Potter series, which allegedly glorifies witchcraft, and the “anti-Christian” bent of Halloween celebrations.

  1. Oop, an offhand remark by a junior Vatican bureacrat means "The Vatican" has condemned something. God this "need to know" blog is invincible in its ignorance of how the Church is structured.

    First it claims that "the Vatican" instituted "seven new deadly sins" (which it didn't), has rehabilitated Marx (which it hadn't) and now this.

    Do some proper journalism and get someone who actually knows the beat you are trying to cover you idiots.

    • "Church spokesman Monsignor Franco Perazzolo of the Vatican's Pontifical Council for Culture . . ."

  2. Yup. That’s how you get the young’uns to fill the pews.
