Disgraced Hollywood financier Harvey Weinstein has funded movies which have "attacked and denigrated the Catholic Church," Angelo Stagnaro wrote in a National Catholic Register blog this weekend, concluding "Weinstein had no problem with hatred and bigotry ― he simply didn't want it directed toward him."

"Fool me once, shame on you; fool me nine times, shame on me," Stagnaro wrote. "What would you say if someone had financed and encouraged nine films bashing Jews or Muslims or women? Racism, bigotry, misogyny are words that come to mind."

Stagnaro outlined nine movies financed by Weinstein, who is now embroiled in a sexual harassment controversy and "throughout his best efforts are luring women to his casting couch, Weinstein was financing films that attacked and denigrated the Catholic Church, including such priceless cinematic gems as:"

  • Priest (1995)
  • The Butcher Boy (1998)
  • Dogma (1999)
  • 40 Days and 40 Nights (2002)
  • The Magdalene Sisters (2002)
  • Bad Santa (2003)
  • Sin City (2005)
  • Black Christmas (2006)
  • Philomena (2013)

"Thus, Harvey has produced a number of films attacking the Catholic Church, but he has actively given a pass to Islamic terrorism," Stagnaro wrote. "Weinstein always aims for safe targets with his films ― people who can't or won't fight back.

"Weinstein had no problem with hatred and bigotry ― he simply didn't want it directed toward him. How very common. In some strange climes, it's remarkably fashionable. Both anti-Catholicism and anti-Semitism should be condemned, without exception. Bigots, however, often condemn one while eagerly engaging in the other."
