From Rod Dreher
  • Hollywood’s banal religion. I’ve seen neither of these. John Podhoretz: Standard-issue counterculture clichés. Ross Douthat: Pantheism has been Hollywood’s religion of choice for a generation now. Dreher: There is, of course, an old and rich New Orleans religious tradition that offers deep resources to combat the darkness in voodoo. It’s called Catholicism. I am pretty confident that Disney would never consider making a film that took Christianity seriously as a positive force, no matter how historically and thematically appropriate it might be. It’s a creative defeat, and one reason, I think, that “Princess and the Frog” is a trifle. It doesn’t have any of the moral grandeur you often get in Pixar films.
  • A walk into Arturo’s country? Religion: doctrine and sensibility. I changed vs to and of course.
