Would Someone Please Page Alanis Morissette? I found something truly ironic

Mr. Hanks doesn't get it. Dialogue is about communication. Would anyone accept a romping treasure hunt movie that proved that slavery was never really abolished and that this was all a lie perpetrated to destroy caucasian culture? What would we say if Indiana Jones showed up to tell us that everything you know about Orthodox Jewry was about power and suppressing the sacred feminine of Zipporah? Regards of what the genre of the movie, you must take responsibility for what is said and communicated.

This is where the irony hits home for me. As I understand it, Mr. Hanks is Greek Orthodox. A few days back the Greek Orthodox patriarch made a fairly loud public statement calling for a boycott. I guess Mr. Hanks will have something to dialogue with his parish priest about come this Sunday.
