Vatican Interference

21Feb08

BishopTerming sexual scenes in movies “vulgar and destructive,” the Italian Synod of Bishops urged actors to stay away from such activity on film, Times Online reported.

Controversy surrounding this platform stems from a recent condemnation by the bishops of a sex scene in Caos Calmo, starring the Italian actor and director Nanni Moretti

“Father Nicolò Anselmi, head of the youth section of the Italian Bishops Conference, said that Moretti was normally noted for his ‘idealistic and sensitive’ films, the Times reported. “But the ‘gratuitous’ sex scene with Isabella Ferrari, his co-star, would have an undesirable effect on the ‘impressionable young’ since it was shown without any context involving love or tenderness.

When are we going to let people live their own lives? Who would Jesus condemn?
