God, on the other hand, actually does not want us to worship nature. Rather, he would like for us to respect His creation and respect Him for having created it. He is our Father. He gave us life. He is the one to whom and by whom all worship should take place!
The movie is simply B-entertainment.

the Vatican can go f*ck themselves...which I'm sure they're pretty good at doing anyway.

The Vatican newspaper and radio station are criticizing James Cameron's 3-D blockbuster for flirting with the idea that worship of nature can replace religion — a notion the pope has warned against. They call the movie a simplistic and sappy tale, despite its awe-inspiring special effects.
I'm sorry, but this is BS.
It's not that I'm taking sides with the movie. It WAS a great movie, but what they have to say about it is just BS to me.
What's wrong with "Worshiping" nature? What's the problem there? Is the Vatican getting upset because people may be opening their eyes and that might steal thunder from some religions?
I just see this as uncalled for - Avatar aside. I don't see the harm in looking up to nature - at all.
Don't mind me.

What's even scarier than the reverse psychology being used by the Vatican is the way people are letting themselves become completely consumed by this movie.
