STOP the blasphemous film Benedetta
This time it is not Netflix going astray, but director Paul Verhoeven and the Zurich-based production company Pathé Films AG. His film "Benedetta" was shown as a competition entry at the film festival and soon released.
In this film, which can be described as a lesbian porn film, the nun Benedetta is a mystical nun who receives visions in her convent and has fun with another young lesbian nun, Batolomea, in many lesbian pornographic scenes...
But that's not all. The producers of this film - only banned for under 12s- highlight a scene where the "nuns" indulge in sexual pleasures with a small statue of the Virgin Mary.
Many of the scenes are shocking and are not only loosely based on a partially true story but once again besmirch Catholicism and trivialize pornography for the general public and young people.
Few people seem bothered by the gratuitous hatred and blasphemy. While even harmless satirical depictions of Mohammed have provoked massive public outrage and accusations of "Islamophobia," this open attack on Christianity has received no attention from "journalists," politicians, and "experts.”
Had this film been attacking Islam, many members of the political and media commentariat would have been the first to denounce it for being insensitive or for whipping up hatred towards a religious minority.
Help us break the silence and protest against this blasphemous, pornographic film directed against the Catholic faith being released in cinemas - sign the petition to Jérome Seydoux, Co-President of the production company Pathé Films and ask him to stop "Benedetta"!
