Dear gentlemen,

Why not organize a boycott of ALL Viacom owned products and services, in
this case?  Hey, if they'll bash Catholics, who shall be the next victim?

They have already re-murdered Jesus Christ with their slander and rhetoric
in the name of First Amendment rights.  His-story was so twisted in a recent
mini-series that it really was Biblically unrecognizable.

God bless you as you Boycott Viacom.

+Pax Christi,

Richard C. August

> In a 29 May press release, the League said it had asked 75

> cable channels; Paramount Pictures movie studio; Infinity
> radio stations (which carry Howard Stern); TDI outdoor
> advertising; Blockbuster video rental stores; Paramount
> theme parks; and Simon & Schuster book publishers.

> denies Showtime the right to insult Catholics, it is also
> true that the Catholic League will not be denied the right
> to exercise its First Amendment rights in calling for a
> boycott.  They asked for this fight, now let's see if they
> can take the heat." (League press release, 29 May)
> The League's campaign began 14 May with a full-page ad in
> the weekly version of "Variety," the entertainment trade
> paper, calling on Redstone to condemn "Sister Mary
> Explains..."  Written by League president William Donohue,
> the ad noted that "in addition to many bishops, priests,
> nuns, religious and lay Catholics, those who have
> registered their objections [to earlier stage versions of
> the work] include the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai
> B'rith . . . the National Conference of Christians and
> Jews, the American Jewish Committee, the Long Island
> chapter of the American Jewish League and the Interfaith
> Clergy Council of St. Louis."
> The ad in "Variety" described "Sister Mary Ignatius . . .":
> "The play features a malicious nun who is confronted by
> four of her former students, all of whom are allegedly
> dysfunctional as a result of their Catholic upbringing.  In
> the course of the play, virtually every Catholic teaching
> is mocked.  The nuns who taught generations of school
> children are hatefully caricatured and stereotyped.  Worst
> of all, the life of Christ is portrayed in the vilest way,
> from the Nativity through the Crucifixion, and Our Blessed
> Mother is viciously depicted.  In the end, the nun shoots
> and kills two of her ex-students."
> Four days later, Showtime CEO Matt Blank told New York Post
> columnist Cindy Adams, "Listen, I'm Jewish.  We're into
> projects that are too political, too religious, too black,
> too gay.  We're a home for wayward movies.  Marshall
> Brickman, the film's director, told Adams,  "Listen, I'm
> Jewish.  I reserve the right to satirize any minority."
> (New York Post, 17 May 2001)
> Donohue responded: "Well, guys -- Listen, I'm Catholic.
>  And I don't believe that anyone can exculpate himself from
> bigotry by citing his racial, ethnic or religious roots. .
> . .  We will now ask Sumner Redstone for a second time to
> condemn all the Catholic bashing that is associated with
> this production." (League press release, 17 May 2001)
> The following week, Showtime released a statement which
> said, "This does not reflect the opinion of Showtime or
> Viacom.  'Sister Mary Explains It All' is an award-winning
> play that is clearly a satire.  Both Showtime and Viacom
> reject intolerance in all its forms." (From League press
> release, 23 May 2001).
> League President Donohue responded: "This is not a film
> that has been previously released -- it is a Showtime
> original . . . Moreover, it fails to persuade to say that
> the movie is based on an award-winning play.  The racist
> movie 'The Birth of a Nation,' was named by the American
> Film Institute as one of America's 100 greatest films.  But
> Showtime would never insult African Americans by airing
> this 'award winning' movie."  Donohue then announced the
> Showtime boycott (League press release, 23 May).
