Cardinal Glick: Thank you, thank you, thank you. Now we all know how the majority and the media in this country view the Catholic church. They think of us as a passe, archaic institution. People find the Bible obtuse... even hokey. Now in an effort to disprove all that the church has appointed this year as a time of renewal... both of faith and of style. For example, the crucifix.

A brilliant piece of modern farce
18 December 2019 | by robertemeraldSee all my reviews

Brilliant idea, followed by a brilliant script, performed by brilliant actors, that is Dogma. It's sort of a cross between Wayne's World and American Gods. It's highly entertaining, and very witty.
