Sadly, it's not surprising that Hollywood Idiots would start a petition backing Polanski. Because they do believe they are immune to criticism. They believe that their elite status entitles them to special treatment.

With that petition, they are saying, "You can't judge us by the same standards as the general public because we are compassionate and we are on the 'good' side of the political spectrum. We also back all the right causes and the people love us. So you can't treat us like common criminals."

And thus, they exempt themselves from criticism and prosecution." And the belief in their exempt status is also why they can go after people in the general public who commit the same crimes as them.


Plus, the elephant in the room here is that Polanski is a Jew (albeit non practicing). The Hollywood elite do NOT turn on their own, regardless of the circumstances. This is not at all surprising.

On another note, I am very hesitant to equate what he did with the horrors committed by some perverted men hiding behind a cassock. We expect much more from ordained priests and hold them to much higher standards (at least we SHOULD). So, drawing simple comparisons like this does not serve the best interest of the church. In other words, I don't bat an eye when Hollywood types brought up in a culture of amoral decadence are caught doing something like this. Not that I expect it, but it just doesn't surprise me given the cause and effect. But it DOES surprise me and outrage me that so many priests have been caught doing the same.


Dear Loy:

Evidently some atheist-financed group in Italy says they have some evidence that the Shroud of Turin is a fake. Stories dated 10-6-09.

I hope you have some timely information on the accuracy or inaccuracy of this story.


Manuilsky, a prominent Soviet professor at the School of Political Warfare, said: "The bourgeoisie will have to be put to sleep. We shall begln by Launching the most spectacular peace movement on record. There will be electrifying overtures and unheard-of concessions. The capitalist countries, stupid and decadent, will rejoice to cooperate in their own destruction. They will leap at another chance to be friends."

And Khrushchev, a more contemporary Soviet prime minister, said: "We cannot expect Americans to jump from capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving Americans doses of socialism until they suddenly awake to find out they have Communism.''

What about all the priests that have crossed over into pedophilia and are just moved to another parish? I have seen this all my life as a Catholic and I abhor it. Prison time is too good for such scoundrels!
