The Catholic Church and a group of parishioners known as the "Christian Faithful", became outraged here in Phoenix, when they learned that their Priest, Father Saul Madrid, had a small part in my film. The story is long and tiring. To put it in a few words, it deals with injustice, ignorance, power and intolerance. For three months or so, I had to witness the persecution and eventual virtual crucifixion of a good man, Father Saul.
It's always difficult to understand fanatism of any kind, but after observing and participating in this painful episode of mass hysteria and irrationality one has to conclude that proximity to God has little to do with frequenting his house. 
Here are a few links that you may find interesting. I call them what I think they should be called:
When a fanatic lies,
it becomes like candy, 
and he can't stop licking.

"As by the fires of experience, so by commission of crime you learn real morals. Commit all crimes, familiarize yourself with all sins, take them in rotation (there are only two or three thousand of them), stick to it, commit two or three every day, and by and by you will be proof against them. When you are through you will be proof against all sins and morally perfect. You will be vaccinated against every possible commission of them. This is the only way."
-- Mark Twain on Being Morally Perfect.
