Video: Catholics on Twilight and the Vampire Craze


I’m not a “Twilight” series reader. And I don’t really have a desire to be. I have, however, always enjoyed stories of the supernatural – even entirely fictional ones. I thought the comments in this video regarding our humanly inherent quest for eternal life and the supernatural and how traditionally such stories were quite imaginatively and far more appropriately situated within the “far greater meta-narrative of Christianity” were quite interesting:

It is true that the vampire craze is not a problem for catholic faith. But not only because it’s a way to understand that we are already immortal because Christ saved us. Actually I think vampires belong to the fairy tales world, described by Tolkien in FaĆ«rie, and may be linked to the fact that we need to be enchanted in This world and that every writer has a part to play in this task, describing worlds and creatures good or evil but beyond our reality. Thus fairy tales are an inviation not only to the quest of immortality but to the true fairy tale which is the Gospel, a fairy tale at work every day.

Sorry for my bad english, and as a French my thoughts are only clear in my own language !

Hear this CD and you may reconsider what you allow in your life. Go buy the CD “Interview with an Exorcist” It is Fr. Tom Euteneuer who is President of the Right to Life International Organization and he is also performing Exorcisms. He talks about specifics and types of demons including one demon who is the “abortion demon” Every Catholic and all need to hear the reality of the e…xistence of the demons and their cunning deceit….

Both Twilight and religion are fairy tales. Twilight just happens to be entertaining enough for young girls to pay 8 dollars to see, whereas religion has to be enforced by stern parents or a since of self hatred and fear of an angry invisible father figure.

What does “since of self hatred” mean?
