I have seen V for Vendetta a few times. Any message that opposes the status governmental quo is worth listening. One of the central emphases of the Guy Fawkes’ day is an opposition to any form of totalitarianism, though the means pursued to accomplish this purpose is immoral and ultimately contrary to the message of liberty. As Catholics for Ron Paul reminded me:
Yes Ron Paul is a hero that is going against the state to seek freedom and repair a structural injustice within our system. But the film V for Vendetta is an openly anti-Catholic film that bizarrely glorifies a Catholic anti-establishment figure from history who sought to liberate Catholics from an anti-Catholic tyrannical regime, and puts him in a film which is overtly anti-Catholic and anti-Christian. How does this fit with Ron Paul and his message?
This is not the message I want to convey to anyone and, as CFRP concludes, this message is inconsistent with Ron Paul’s message of religious freedom. Further, Ron Paul would never embrace a message that opposes the Christian faith. Though the symbolism behind the date is probably not the most desirable for a Ron Paul donation explosion, nevertheless it will suit our purposes in this great day in campaigning history.
