I Never Heard About This Man Before

And I applaud a movie that brings his story to light.
But I know in the eyes of the haters that while the misdeeds of a few priests casts a dark shadow over the entire catholic church, the goodness of this priest will only be seen as a goodly man who just so happens to be a priest.
For the record, if a muslim cleric/preacher/Imam were to show a similar story (not that I am saying there isn't. I just haven't heard of one yet, but I do welcome it) I would be the first to applaud him and maybe even have a little hope for the cult of Islam.

Well, of course it's not an American filmmaker. And it's a story that took place in 1937, so everybody'll say, "Sure priests used to be good. Too bad they're all pedophiles now."
