BELATED VICTORY

Catalyst July/August Issue 2010

It was about a year ago—last August to be precise—when Showtime aired what was the most anti-Catholic television show in history, namely, a Penn & Teller episode on the Vatican. We took out ads in Hollywood publications; we made copies of the video and sent them to every bishop in the U.S.; we conducted a media campaign against the show; and we enlisted our members in the protest.

Well, it looks like we won a belated victory.

We recently learned that the ugly episode was not included in the DVD collection of Penn & Teller’s 2009 series of shows. Guess they got the message.

With great consternation, Penn Jillette (the talking half of the duo) made his confession in Vanity Fair.
