Anti-Catholicism and religious bigotry alive and well in Mexico, where THE PASSION has been rated X: Government bans all viewers under the age of 18 from seeing blockbuster film of the last 12 hours of Christ


3/17/2004 8:26:00 PM - Catholic Citizens of Illinois


Religious bigotry and persecution by the government is alive and well in Mexico, where the secular, socialist, and predominantly masonic power brokers have seen to it that children under the age of 18 will not be admitted to see the blockbuster film by Mel Gibson, THE PASSION.


Responding to the blatant censorship and anti-Catholic nature of the Mexican government's actions, PASSION producer Steve McEveety said in a letter to the films supporters Tuesday, "I must ask that you encourage any and all to make a public out cry in Mexico regarding the unfair rating imposed on the Film "The Passion of the Christ". This means no one under 18 years of age is allowed to enter a theater playing the film. This reminds us all that the fear the Government has of the Catholics in Mexico is alive and well anddangerous still today. Please help where you feel it is appropriate."


On Monday in a letter to supporters, Eduardo Echeverria shared the disappointing news regarding the government imposed sanctions against the Catholic film. "We just got the answer to our appeal and it was again 18 years old. Unfortunately, there's nothing else we can do at this point. Notwithstanding this censorship, we are keeping our current film rental estimate, print numbers and ad/pub spend. We are sure the film will do outstanding business in Mexico and in all the region."
