Vatican Calls Twilight Saga A Deviant “Moral Vacuum”

By Susan Brinkmann, OCDS Staff Journalist A Vatican official is calling the latest movie in the popular vampire saga, Twilight, a “moral vacuum with a deviant message.” According to London’s Daily Mail, Monsignor Franco Perazzolo of the Pontifical Council of Culture was responding to the movie, New Moon, the latest installment in the multi-part occult thriller, Twilight. The series tells the story of a vampire named Edward (Robert Pattinson) and a high school student named Bella (Kristen Stewart) who fall in love. Throughout the series, Edward tries to avoid biting Bella in order to spare her from losing her soul and becoming a vampire. In the end Edward relents and Bella joins him in the realm of the “undead.” “Men and women are transformed with horrible masks and it is once again that age-old trick or ideal formula of using extremes to make an impact at the box office,” Monsignor Perazzolo said. "This film is nothing more than a moral vacuum with a deviant message and as such should be of concern.” The movie is based on the books by Stephenie Meyer, which have sold 85 million copies worldwide. The third film in the four part series is scheduled to be released in June, 2010. © All Rights Reserved, Living His Life Abundantly®/Women of Grace®  http://www.womenofgrace.com
