Until the real problem at the core of The Present Crisis is acknowledged, it will not be dealt with properly.
I read at La Nuova Bussola, in Italian, a horrifying bit of news.
In the Italian town of Rivoli, near Turin, there is a movie theater owned by the religious order The Salesians. founded by St. John Bosco. They are to show at that movie theater a highly morally offensive movie, “Chiamami col tuo nome… Call Me By Your Name”. It is, basically, about pederasty and involves a “sex story between a 24-year-old and a 15-year-old, with a lot of masturbation and other obscenities”.
In a movie theater owned by the Salesians.
What would St. John Bosco say about this situation? The mind reels.
I wonder what Salesian Card. Rodriguez Maradiaga thinks about this movie.
CNS has a review of the movie, but the page would not open for me at the time of this writing. Bottom line: morally offensive. HERE
According to an Italian Catholic cinema organization, the film is “poetic”. HERE
Italian bishops, you ask? HA!
