Avatar - two thumbs down, The Vatican. "In our world J.C. does not stand for James Cameron." 15 January 2010
The cartoon shows the Pope giving the thumbs down with both hands and saying 'In our world J.C. doesn't stand for James Cameron'. The title of the film 'Avatar' appears above the image and the text 'Two thumbs down - the Vatican' below the title. The Vatican newspaper and radio station are criticizing James Cameron's 3D blockbuster for flirting with the idea that worship of nature can replace religion - a notion the pope has warned against.
