I deeply appreciate the posting of this video. May I recommend posting more of these? I would also like to submit this thought for your consideration: liberals are the "outsiders" and the "lost sheep", not objects to be dehumanized and eliminated. If Christians are to be truly creative, would it not make sense to actually try to understand and reach out to the Other instead of condemning it?

Liberals are persons who adhere to liberalism, which is an opinion, and not a race. One can always stop being a liberal. In that sense, it is a ridiculous idea to define liberals as 'other' because, just as a liberal could always stop being a liberal, a conservative could always stop being a conservative. One opposes the other not as one type of person looking at another type of person, but as a fellow person who could make the same decisions as himself.
I like this movie in that it can be applied to a very pro-human dignity message. I don't know if a pro-life message was intended by the makers of the movie, but, certainly, application of the outlook behind the movie would encourage one to consider the pro-life message.

My husband and I saw District9 two weeks ago, after seeing this and reading two other Catholic blog reviews.
Fr, B fails to bring attention to the many pro-life, actually wanton distruction of Alien life, scenes.
He forgot to mention that the aliens had many powerful weapons which they did not use on humans, in spite of how they are treated.
It is a powerful, thought provoking moral lesson of movie, IF you and your family talk about it. Reasons to go see it.
Otherwise, it is dark and disturbing with excessive violence and much swearing. Reasons not to go.

Father Barron always does a great job reviewing films. I try to watch his commentaries on all sorts of subjects at http://www.wordonfire.org/Home.aspx to keep in touch with how the Church feels.

Sounds like liberal pro-illegal immigration propaganda to me.
