The Church and its 2000 years history is not loved, generally for the same old “ crusades & condoms ” reasons. People deprive themselves of a faith (faith: someone to be trusted by instead of someone to be watched over), but also of a rich reservoir of stories. Most of my friends have no faith but they like stories. As a story teller, Luis Buñuel drew a lot from this well. His last movie in Mexico is an adaptation of Simeon stylites's life, an ascetic saint who lived on the top of a column in Syria. Roman ruins being used for the new faith: an other example is San Benedict, using an ex Apollo temple at the Monte Cassino, Italy.
