2012 – it’s just a film, but…
Christianity Today expressed concerns with the film showing the St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome and the towering Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio being destroyed, while not portraying the destruction of landmarks associated with non-Christian religions. (From Wikipedia)
Quote from the above link: On the other hand, if Emmerich is going to specifically show the Vatican leadership going down with St. Peter’s, I want to see Catholic (and/or Orthodox) bishops among the survivors—somewhere on the planet. The Church must continue, and while a Protestant with a Bible may be good to carry things on, Catholics need the succession of bishops. 2012 doesn’t say that there aren’t bishops among the survivors, but if Emmerich can kill ’em onscreen, he could have let some live onscreen.
It’s just a film.
