Sins is unholy for Catholic bishops

The Times of India

NEW DELHI: Protesting the release of Hindi film Sins , which depicts a Catholic priest in a sexual relationship, the Catholic Bishops' Conference of India (CBCI) on Wednesday appealed for taking it off the screen.

"We, the Catholic Bishops of this country, feel that the film pays scant regard to the sensitivity of Catholic community in India that holds its priests in high esteem," the CBCI said.

It noted that such portrayal of religious persons in films serves no purpose other than giving fodder to those who are working to tarnish the social and religious institutions.
