Vatican Not Happy Avatar Promotes Nature Worship
2010 01 14

Another clear message from the Vatican and the Pope: Pope: 'Dubious' Environmentalism is 'key to world peace'?

In an attempt to remain hip, the Vatican has rendered its verdict on James Cameron’s mega-blockbuster Avatar — and they pretty much say it sucks. In fact, if there was a Regal Cinema in heaven, they’re quite confident the latest Kirk Cameron film would be playing instead.

The main criticism is that the film weakens the idea of a God in heaven by instead promoting the worship of nature — specifically, a giant tree.

L’Osservatore said the film “gets bogged down by a spiritualism linked to the worship of nature.” Along the same lines, Vatican Radio said it “cleverly winks at all those pseudo-doctrines that turn ecology into the religion of the millennium.”

“Nature is no longer a creation to defend, but a divinity to worship,” the radio said.

Taking a different approach, Bolivian’s President Evo Morales has praised Avatar for what he calls “its message of saving the environment from exploitation.”

And truly, that’s what most people will take away from this film — an appreciation of the beauty of the environment, it’s fragility, and the threats against it. I doubt many will burn their bibles and start worshiping trees. But if they DO, we have a pretty good idea of what will be playing in their heavenly cinema.

Sorry, Kirk Cameron.
