sigh.

You know what?

I would suggest to the Church that it has far more pressing issues at hand than a sure-to-be-crappy Ron Howard movie based on a crappy book. Considering that they are currently helmed by a former Nazi Sith Lord and can't seem to be rid of troubling law suits involving pederasty, you'd think that the establishment Church would have bigger fish to fry than whether or not a WORK OF FICTION (and a pretty bad one at that) will threaten the foundations of the faith.

But what do I know, I'm just a godless heathen.

  1. And not even his best bit of bad fiction either.

  2. I am constantly amused by purveyors of bad fiction saying that other bad fiction contradicts their unbelievable, asinine tenets of faith.

    Also waiting to see whether there will be "Last Temptation of Christ" or "Dogma" style protests on this film. Probably not; it has America's favorite middlebrow actor in a starring role, with Opie directing!

  3. I haven't read The DaVinci Code, and don't plan to. I've read other books covering the general theory, and it's one of the silliest collections of tripe I've run across. I'm not one to dismiss all conspiracy theories out of hand, but come on, they need to have at least some credibility.

    From a feminist viewpoint, it's no better than traditional Christianity. All they did was exchange the stereotype of Mary Magdalene as whore with that of her as royal mother. It once again brushes aside her true personhood and probable real role as a prime teacher of Jesus' spiritual message and a leader among his earliest followers.
