Today, I've noticed a growing number of Catholics speaking out against the movie The Nativity Story. One friend send me an email she received from a Catholic group (whose name I will not mention) going so far as calling it "anti-Catholic" and "heretical".
My son and I spent an hour this morning refuting the harsh condemnation given by fellow Catholics. In essence, we reminded them that the movie was not made by Catholics for Catholics, but was made to reach a wider audience. As Father Fox stated "...at least Hollywood recognizes the value in giving some
recognition to Christianity in the public square..."
I would like to direct your attention to Fr. Robert Fox's blog because Father Fox is a renowned Marian priest. It is a fair critique of this movie.
