The movie, however, contains X-rated content including:
- Nudity and immoral acts
- Blasphemy and anti-Catholic hatred
- Nuns sin among themselves and even with “Christ”
- A statue of the Virgin Mary is used for immoral acts
“When someone hits your mother, you don’t just stand there. You respond in self-defense!” noted John ritchie with the American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property (TFP), the organization that sponsors protest rallies nationwide.
“Benedetta is vile blasphemy against our spiritual Mother, the Holy Catholic Church, and we are not going to sit in silence while the faith we love is under attack,” Ritchie said. “Public blasphemy is not freedom of expression. Defamation is also not artistic expression.”
According to TFP, an army of Catholic volunteers is about to organize peaceful demonstrations in their respective communities against “Benedetta”.
“Those who want to see the blasphemous film ‘Benedetta’ claim it’s just entertainment,” Ritchie said. “But we’ve seen this attitude before in history. When the Roman emperors gave Christians to lions, they called that entertainment, too.”
“As most Americans get ready to celebrate Christmas, theaters will be showing Verhoeven’s porn filth on the big screen. It’s a dirty movie, made by a dirty mind, consumed by a dirty culture,” Ritchie said. “Not only does Benedetta offend Our Lord Jesus christ – the reason for the Christmas season – but the film also hurts all Catholics who honor the Virgin Mary as their mother, especially during the holy Christmas season. ”
