Hollywood fears Muslims, but hates Catholics and Evangelicals

And Hollywood is very generous to Barack Obama.

It is hardly surprising to learn that many young Muslim men in the Middle East react like barbarians when insulted by a movie, but it is rather incredible to learn of the way the Obama administration initially reacted to the release of the anti-Muslim film.
 
The U.S. Embassy’s statement sounded more like something penned by Oprah than American diplomats. It said it “condemns efforts to offend individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims.” (My italic.)
 
Just this week, I wrote a news release explaining why a special jury award was given to a movie at the Venice Film Festival: it shows a woman masturbating with a crucifix. I also issued another release on an upcoming series on FX that portrays a sadistic nun who beats mentally insane patients in an evil Catholic institution. This is what we do at the Catholic League: we are constantly drawing attention to the Catholic bashing that takes place in the arts, the entertainment industry, the media, and elsewhere. Yet no one in the Obama administration has ever expressed the slightest interest in condemning anti-Catholic fare.
 
Hollywood specializes in trashing Catholic “feelings,” yet we hear nothing about it from President Obama. That’s because he has too many friends there. Just last month, Harvey Weinstein, who has produced more anti-Catholic movies than anyone, held a $35,000-per-person dinner in his home for the president. In March, Bill Maher, who is the supreme Catholic basher, wrote a check to Obama’s superPAC for $1 million.
 
Yesterday, when Neil Cavuto on Fox News asked me how to make sense of all this, I said, “Hollywood respects Jews, fears Muslims and hates Catholics, as well as Evangelicals.”
