← The fires of Hell are real and eternal, Pope warns

I found myself feeling surprised at Anthony Hopkins choice to play a role that suggests,

"Not to believe in a devil doesn't mean it can't get to you.."

Such concepts, I feel, can torment young minds into that perpetual corner of consciousness pseudo logic that keeps telling itself it can never get away from evil huntsmen. What crude poison!

I think it thespian effluent to portray such fictional dross as plausible reality.

Am I missing something, or is there an underlying 'religious analogy' of intellectual value that I am failing to spot Hopkins selection? Or does this reflect his positioning on theism?

Strikes me as bizarre!
