Edit: “Deacon” Steve Greydanus, is a “Catholic” movie reviewer. Here is a description from the deplorable Catholic Answers:
Steven D. Greydanus is the creator of the Decent Films Guide, www.decentfilms.com. Steven is film critic for the National Catholic Register and writes regularly for Christianity Today, Catholic World Report and other venues. He is a member of Online Film Critics Society.Steven has contributed several entries to the New Catholic Encyclopedia, including “The Church and Film” and a number of filmmaker biographies. He has also written about film for the Encyclopedia of Catholic Social Thought, Social Science, and Social Policy.
He’s just nutty over the sumptuous, but not too oppositional to “heteronormativity” like Brokeback Mountain, film about a pederast taking advantage of a 17 year old. Here’s the description in IMDB:
It's the summer of 1983, and precocious [delicious?] 17-year-old Elio Perlman is spending the days with his family at their 17th-century villa in Lombardy, Italy. He soon meets Oliver, a handsome doctoral student who's working as an intern for Elio's father. Amid the sun-drenched splendor of their surroundings, Elio and Oliver discover the heady beauty of awakening desire o ver the course of a summer that will alter their lives forever.
Here’s Greydanus in all of his glory:
Of course, Greydanus isn’t the only one.
So few to recognize evil anymore.
Can some one tell me the post-VatII church is not just an arm of the 'deep state'? It is now fairly obvious 'the church' is eager and willing to do their bidding.
It is all about the new world order and the creation of a one world socialist government. A one world religion is just a tool. Malachi Martin stated that John Paul II was isolated especially after being shot by agents in key positions who were part of what you would call "deep state".
Catholic Answers?!!! Aren't they affiliated with EWTN? Wow. The gates of hell are definitely prevailing.
For all this gush and the film''s right on liberal orthodoxy isn't it basically about grooming?
I couldn't watch the clip for fear of vomiting, but this sickness needs to be exorcised - not promoted.
When you say Greydanus's surname, the accent is on the last four letters of the name!
Goodness me. This Greydanus chap is supposedly married to a Suzanne and they have 7 children. When I watched the clip, he was gushing about male beauty and his voice and body language screamed "I am a queen!"
Vatican II has destroyed everything.
Yes you very precious Anonymous 8:22 AM. You teach that husband, father of seven, Greydanus 'Queen' and belt him over the head with your handbag. That'll teach him a lesson.
How about NCR fires him for having a point of view completely out of synch with the Catholic Church’s teachings about scandal, modesty and impurity.
What a enormous source of amusement you are Tancred with disingenuous demands that NCR sack Greydanus for being his alleged failure to think with the Church about 'scandal, modesty and impurity' when most of your followers are either sede-vacantists or close to it, rarely if ever mention Jesus Christ or the Gospels as the foundation of faith but who are forever trumpeting the fourth, fifth and sixth secrets of God-knows-what to say nothing of the deranged rants of drug fuelled soothsayers and foul mouthed hillbillies.
Clean up your own backyard you pompous, cowardly Twerp who has to resort to deleting an entire thread because you ran out of BS, P&W and straight out distortion. Wake up to yourself.
So says the man who’s anonymously defending the pederastc Gaydanus.
So, Tancred, you continue to react and not to respond logically or truthfully. You're only publishing stuff that is almost without exception, low grade, sensationalist, incendiary drivel that stokes up the subterranean rage and resentment of the scrupulous knuckle-crackers and hand wringers who constitute your following.
This closely resembles the fund-raising techniques of the selfist entrepreneur Zuhlsdorf only you are not in it for the money just another Knighthood.
You’re just fishing and trying to derail a thread on a post that justifiably fingers Gaydanus’ love of bucolic countrysides and decadence. You must covet these kinds of themes.
Do they still give knighthoods to people who expose and slay loathsome monsters like Greydanus and his ilk.
Round and round the merry-go-round goes causing the confusion within which the devil does his work. NCR, CNS, and EWTN have merged under the direction of AB Chaput of Philadelphia. Chaput is just one more grandstander who came on like a lion and now purrs like a kitten. His chameleon credentials are now obvious.
The 'thread,' Tancred, it about a bunch of weak minded, moralizing neurotics burning pantomime horse. It makes them feel good to lash out and symbolically obliterate those things that annoy them. It's a drug, Tancred, and that's all. There is no God in this.
Begone sodomitical demon.
When all else fails, it all comes down to this kind of bloodless, mindless teenage bleat from the great pretender.
Hypocrisy has manifested itself in physical form and is oozing out of Bookbinder's ears it seems.
Ladies of good Catholic upbringing, please open your eyes before you say I DO to a man at the altar. You have this God-given talent in minutiae. If something seems very wrong, FLEE!!!
