More evidence that whenever the media uses the term devout to describe somebody they usually forget to add the words "anything but" as a prefix.
The sub-headline on a story about Mia Farrow says:
Although a devout Catholic, Mia Farrow is happy to face evil in her latest film, she tells Gill Pringle
.."At home I expose my children to all faiths. I put a different book on the stairs leading up to our bedrooms – books on Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Christianity and so on. I want them to get a taste of different religions and see how different people approach things and what their motivation is. But, for me, The Omen is not about religion. It’s just another role and it’s been a lot of fun. Besides, my mother never told me not to do roles that involved evil or Satan," says Farrow, laughing.
So I guess the definition of devout includes syncretism. By this definition a devout atheist can also believe in God. You do have to wonder about her choice of roles and the affinity for devil children in first Rosemary’s Baby and now The Omen remake. It is amazing how many plot lines seem to want to mock or copy the Incarnation of Christ applying the same thing to the Devil. There has always been a lot of dualism in Hollywood horror by putting the devil on a par with God. There have been many movies and TV shows like that have virgin births of anti-Christ’s like last year travesty "Revelations" mini seriesand even a form of the same thing with Star Wars which had a virgin birth that leads to Darth Vader. Manichaeism is alive and well in the minds of scriptwriters.
