|A steady stream of 'hate mail' has been reaching our mailboxes since an unauthorized early draft of the
'Dogma' script was placed on the Web many months ago. This was followed by a booklet which urged people to write with their complaints.
Please note that all of these letters were sent months before the film was even announced for release.
The following is a sample of the type of 'hate mail' that we've been getting:
Posted on September 23rd, 1999
You are the producer of Dogma right? Well, you need to stop it. Do not sell it or show it. Fire the actors, burn the scenery and scripts. Let the footage already made, everything, be destroyed. If you have already sold it, take it back. Use the force of a legal lawsuit if neccessary. Please. It is a horrible, evil, blasphemous movie against our Holy Mother Mary. End it now - you are making a very powerful someone very very VERY VERY very angry. That someone is God - I urge you to destroy the movie 'Dogma'. Please do this... your souls depend on it.
May God have sweet mercy toward you -

To those responsible:
What are the reasons, the motivation behind the prduction of Dogma? Who has such a deep hatred for the Church that it must be expressed in films? How can any sane, intelligent person justify the making of a film like Dogma?
Yo have the mentality and the lack of respect found in an unruly, poorly-nurtured three-year-old kid. You laugh at what you don't understand. How pathetic!
Intellectual pride has made fools of all of you responsible for Dogma. Don't distribute it. Destroy it.
