THE CRAFT ASSAULTS CATHOLICISM
The movie, The Craft, a box office hit this past spring, is the sordid story of four teenage girls who are witches. Even though it has nothing to do with the plot, it just happens that the girls attend an unnamed Los Angeles-area Catholic high school. The girls dress in Catholic school uniforms and wear rosaries around their necks. They are portrayed as sex-crazed drunkards and the priests and nuns are shown as being wholly incompetent. To top it off, there is even a mockery of a Catholic Mass.
Fortunately, serious movie reviewers panned the film as utter trash. Unfortunately, most didn’t address the anti-Catholic bias that was evident in the production.
