Hollywood Hypocrites

Okay, the title is not exactly an earth-shattering, surprising notion. Brent Bozell has a great piece regarding Hollywood's anti-Catholic bashing, all the while pretending to be oh-so-upset about Mel Gibson's drunken comments:

Critics far and wide are vigorously pillorying the producer of "The Passion of the Christ" for his recent drunken, anti-Semitic rantings. The critics are demanding that Gibson crawl on his knees begging for forgiveness, which is pretty much what he has already done.

However, no such apologies are being demanded from the host of anti-Catholic bigots attacking Gibson who apparently remain free to spout their hatred of everything Catholic without criticism from the same celebrities and media members now demanding Mel's scalp.

Read on for specific examples that you certainly don't hear a lot of uproar about. Where are the critics when anti-Catholic bigotry is rampant? Nowhere to be found.
