Link TV Mocks Catholicism; Video Produced with Federal Funds

MEDIA ADVISORY, Feb. 5 /Standard Newswire/ -- On February 3, Link TV featured a three and a half minute video that mocks Catholicism. The media outlet is available as a basic service in more than 31 million homes that receive direct broadcast satellite TV.

The video, "Divine Food," opens with a priest waking up to a rumbling noise that shakes the religious symbols and statues in his room. He proceeds to a Catholic church where he discovers several wafers near a cup (the implication is that they are consecrated Hosts). In a disrespectful manner, he chews them vigorously and then admonishes the statues that are "looking at him." He falls asleep in the church and when awakened he is asked to say Mass, which he refuses to do. The priest then makes large wafers out of dough and gives the pancake-like substance (which he calls the "Body of Christ") to confused parishioners at Communion. The video ends when he drops the remaining "Hosts" into a dirty aquarium. the rest

Folks I also reported this on my blog Catholic Conservative American and just discovered that the movie's creator/director, Marcela Said (Chile), has a Facebook page. I'm sure she would LOVE to hear your opinion!

God Bless,
