Bless me, Schnorrer

As a Catholic, I found this incredible scene from The Sopranos completely spot on. In the 1970s and 80s, our family home was a regular stop for various priests and other religious leaders looking for a meal or adult beverages.

The Sopranos scene above is an uncomfortable reality showing the freeloading priest Father Phil being called out by Carmela for manipulating “spiritually thirsty” women.

The Catholic church limits women to roles lesser than priests and therefore keeps them locked in a spiritually thirsting state.

Bravo to the script writers for a searing look at reality.

Now enjoy more treats from the brilliant Sopranos series, one of the greatest stories in American television history.
