Vatican hates ‘Avatar’ so much it pretends to forget it’s pro-environmentalism

Item: Vatican Radio has trashed Avatar for its “wink towards the pseudo-doctrines which have made ecology the religion of the millennium” (via the Telegraph).

Item: L’Osservatore, the Vatican newspaper, complains that Avatar “gets bogged down by a spiritualism linked to the worship of nature” (via the Associated Press).

This is funny because: In 2008, the Vatican added “ruining the environment” to its list of seven deadly modern sins (via the Times of London).

Apparently, though, environmentalism is a sin if you don’t do it in precisely the way the Vatican wants you to. And downloading yourself into a 10-foot-tall alien body and psychically communing with Eywa just goes too darn far.
