Protestants Awake!

Awesome stuff. I love seeing Protestants pop an artery over all things Catholic. This fella has realized TPOTC is a Catholic movie, and is now on a crusade to protect his brethren from being duped by the papists and mariolaters. It's a very straight-forward attack, right out of the fundie textbook. But this line of argument against the movie is my favorite:
Monica Bellucci (Mary Magdalene), Claudia Gerini (Wife of Pontius Pilate), and Rosita Celentano (Satan) are European porn models with pictures or films to confirm, though relatively unknown in America. For a man going to Mass every day to be “squeaky clean,” selecting these women to play major roles in a movie about Jesus Christ is more than a little hypocritical. Have we missed some wonderful repentance stories? Or is Mel just Hollywood as usual?
"Hypocritical"??? Like I said in an earlier post, these guys have no sense of irony.
