Weakling Hollywood Director Blows Up Catholic Landmarks, Spares Muslim Holy Sites in "2012"
Of course, this surprises no one.
Weakling Hollywood Director Roland Emmerich of the disaster movie “2012” will show Catholic landmarks destroyed but will spare Muslim holy sites.
Emmerich says he doesn’t want a fatwa placed on his head.
Catholic League president Bill Donohue speaks to the way Catholics and Muslims are treated in the upcoming film, “2012”:
When we got word recently that the movie “2012” depicts the Vatican being blown up, along with the famous statue from Rio, Christ the Redeemer, we were unmoved. Why? Because this occurs during the end of the world in a massive destruction. This kind of sensationalism, we reasoned, is standard fare for director Roland Emmerich: he is the guru of the “blow ‘em up” genre of movies. But now we’ve learned that while Catholics get theirs, Muslims are spared. Out of fear, of course.
Emmerich is more than a coward—he is a liar who has it out for Catholics. Last year, he was quoted saying, “I would like to erase all nations and religions.” Not true. He is quite content to live with Islam, even though he readily admits it is a religion of terror. When asked why he did not show the destruction of Kaaba, the religious structure in the Grand Mosque in Mecca, he said, “I wanted to do that, I have to admit. You can actually let Christian symbols fall apart, but if you would do this with [an] Arab symbol, you would have…a fatwa.”
So why was the Sistine Chapel designated for destruction? “We have to show how this gets destroyed….I am against organized religion.” Emmerich lies again. He is not against Islam.
