With all the hoopla about the movie Twilight what is the church’s teaching on vampires?


There is NO Church teaching on vampires (the undead kind), or werewolves, or zombies because they do not exist.


I don’t know, but if the Church ever declares vampires are evil, I’ll have to leave my girlfriend.


Is that the church’s teaching, then?


There is NO teaching. Why would there be? The Church doesn’t have a teaching on everything, and certainly not on fictional creatures!


Of course silly me I should have known that
