I went to Catholic grammar school and high school in the 1950s and 1960s. We were taught by two different orders of nuns. I never saw any evidence of horror or even concern about them. They were strict of course [as well as kind and supporting], but they never laid a hand on any of us. It was only in high school that I came across one angry nun who didn't like any of us---but she never harmed anyone. I think this sort of thing is based on maybe true, maybe false, maybe exaggerated stories about teaching nuns. In any case, the Hollywood anti-Catholic sentiment appears alive and well.

I don't think one movie defines all of Hollywood. Many movies have portrayed religious people quite favorably, probably more favorably than they deserve to be portrayed. Remember, movies cater to what people believe, or want to believe.

Aura,

Name one movie from Hellywood in the last 10 to 20 years that portrayed Religious Women favorably!

You are so brainwashed, you won't even admit the truth when it bites you!

Aura, your second sentence proclaims you a holier than thou hypocrite. YOu cannot find one private effort to help the people of hte world, unselfishly and without forcing anyone else to join in if they don't want to, that isn't tied to religion.

You also cannot do any film about the most violent time in the world's history, the 20th century, when massive genocide was done on nations by their own rulers, that wasn't done by anti-Christians or atheists.

Nor can any country but ours, with our background of forgiveness, shown to go in and help our conquered enemies rebuild THEIR OWN nations. You are an ignorant pagan.

Some hateful stereotypes never die in Hollywood. The cover of the Sept. 7 edition of Entertainment Weekly featured the 63-year-old actress Jessica Lange, smirking in a nun's black habit, holding a big, punishing cane in her hands. Lange is returning for a second season on the FX series "American Horror Story," but this time with an entirely new plot and characters.

Nuns are now a thing of horror. "Jessica Lange returns, this time as a terrifying nun," promised the magazine's cover. They eagerly hyped a new storyline that's "a macabre mash-up of nuns, Nazis, aliens, a serial killer named...
