The Da Vinci Code

Some religious leaders are complaining about the new movie, The Da Vinci Code, saying that most of what it says about historical Christianity is not true.

I guess no one pointed out to these religious leaders that The Da Vinci Code IS A MOVIE! IT'S NOT SUPPOSED TO BE TRUE!

Movies are stories. They are meant to entertain. Sometimes they impart knowledge. Occasionally they may have something to say about right and wrong.

When you think about it, that's not so different from what religious leaders are supposed to do.

Thank you.
I've lost count of the number of people so outraged by a book of fiction. I read it out of pure curiosity and found it fascinating. I also found National Treasure fascinating too but I'm not out breaking into national monuments or historical landmarks looking for a lost treasure.
All this time invested in doing battle over a book of fiction when there's a much bigger battle that needs to be fought... the price of gas... sheesh
