  • The Laramie Project is about a boy in WY who was murdered. There is a Catholic priest who helped the town deal with the hate crime. It isn't about the Catholic Church, but there are some spots where you can see the compassion a preist has. The priest is still practicing in the mid west.

  • Your real mature aren't you anon:10
    The film is a satire of the Catholic Church and Catholic belief, which caused organized protests and much controversy in many countries, delaying release of the film and leading to at least two death threats against Smith.[1][2] The film follows two fallen angels, Loki and Bartleby, who, through a loophole in Catholic Dogma find a way to get back into Heaven after being cast out by God—however, as God is infallible their success in doing so would prove Him/Her wrong and thus undo all creation

  • Controversy
    Although there was no opposition to the film while the actual filming and pre-production was taking place, the following months of post-production and publicity were plagued with controversy over a perceived anti-Catholic message in the film.

    In an interview, Smith said: "You gotta find the line, and then cross it".

    Over time, the filmmakers received over 300,000 pieces of hate mail, which Smith posted on his website. Among these were "two-and-three-quarters" death threats. Smith explained this in his movie An Evening with Kevin Smith: One of the letters was threatening to start with, then became more friendly further on. The Catholic League in particular attacked Disney and Miramax, the original distributors, for being anti-Catholic
