I really enjoyed this movie. It was interesting to see the different ways religions view things.  In the movie, a priest known as Father LaForgue went on a voyage to try and convert natives to Christianity. They viewed him as a demon wearing a black robe and rejected everything he was preaching. A boy named Daniel that accompanied Father LaForgue connected more with the natives and began to understand why they wouldn’t succumb to Christian beliefs. I feel the profane in the movie was the inability of the natives and Christians to understand each other and accept each others beliefs. The movie portrayed the way religions have problems between each other in the world today. Since I’m Christian, watching this opened my eyes to how other religions view my faith.
