Sydney Catholics protest Californication
‘ANGRY Catholics have pledged to hold candlelit vigils outside Channel Ten headquarters whenever the steamy new show Californication is on air.
The first vigil was overnight, with more than 30 people praying away their concerns about the louche new dramedy billed as “the filthiest show on television”.
“It’s a spiritual battle,” said Father John Fongemie, who led last night’s demonstration outside the Pyrmont building.
“We’re concerned with the programming that’s being shown on channel Ten, which is crassly immoral, and which casts the Catholic church in a bad light.”
Ronan Reilly, 16, said he was shocked by a clip he saw on the internet of the show’s star David Duchovny having “sexual relations” with a nun inside a church.’
