Preacher : the president of the Catholic league threatens to take up arms against AMC as a result of a sex scene controversy
‘One can laugh of everything but not with anyone,’ said Desproges. Kind Preacher, and the religion in fact.
Always fun to see how the treatment of religion in the screen is to be taken with a grain of salt. Like the Da Vinci Code at the time, some neurotic a little too focused on the crucifix have found a new target in the person of Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen, the duo of brats at the origin of the very good adaptation of the cult comic book Preacher. A show iconoclastic, irreverent about the adventures of a troupe like no other, comprised of a pastor, all-powerful, an ex-hitman repentant and a vampire too focused on the drink. Amazing that these excited of the prayer have not manifested previously, as the show tutoyait with blasphemy for some time already. Except that the last episode of the series has pushed the nail starting on a explicit sex scene between the Messiah and a young debauched.
The ways of the Lord are impenetrable it seems
It is, therefore, the president of the very conservative Catholic League’s Bill Donohue , who expresses himself on the subject, and he is not happy :
“To present Jesus in a sex scene grotesque is an offense to all christians, as much as for non-christians. We are used to this kind of attack on the part of a lot of strings of this kind, but we don’t usually see AMC show as disrespectful. If this happens again, we rallierons Christians to stand up against the chain. “
It must be said that the last episode of the pastor, the least christian of the world was going to do cause. Between said part of his leg in the air and of the son, to Dieu and the portrait high in color they make up afterwards (no spoilers), religion and fiction are not always good bedfellows.
