Hollywood - Pope John Paul II, and Mehmet Ali Agca

An Instanbul jail released the guy who shot Pope John Paul II back in 1981 , and now the would-be assassin is receiving mega-bucks ($8 million) to STAR in a Hollywood movie about the attack. He was unable to appear for his check-in with authorities after being released from jail because he was in seclusion working on the negotiations for the movie. Hmmmm - he can't follow the conditions of his release because he is on his way to being a movie star. Par for the course in Hollywood. He already feels above the law because of his soon-to-be status as a move star.

While it is shocking that a movie company would stoop so low, it's not surprising. In a post entitled "THE CULTURAL ELITE - DEDICATED TO DARKNESS" Dr. Sanity talks about Hollywood's general lack of producing anything without a political or social agenda. Forget entertainment. I wonder what the agenda is for this movie. Maybe someone can enlighten me.

Agca shot a man who is undoubtedly one of the most humble and godly men of our era, leaving him fighting for his life. Pope John Paul II never fully recovered from the attack. And less than a year after the Pope's death, his attacker is released from prison and is promised $8 million to star in a movie about the attack.

This is wrong on every level I can imagine.
