Rome Playing Movie Reviewer

As a follow on from my post yesterday, today's Times of London carry a new story "Rome Condemns Queen Elizabeth Again" in which a Vatican historian hits out at the new Elizabeth movie as being anti-Catholic. This would be funny it it wasn't so tragic. You'd imagine "spiritual" men would be too busy being "spiritual" to bother commenting on the latest movie/book/whatever but they're not! It seems that these guys think "Spiritual" = "Cosmic Censor" in the never ending battle to ensure "Right Think". I'm reminded of that famous definition of fundamentalism by H. L. Mencken
the terrible, pervasive fear that someone, somewhere, is having fun.
