Catholics vs Da Vinci Code

So there is only a week or so to go before that film is released and the Catholics are preparing for another major sulkathon over it.

The book, which has sold 40 millions copies worldwide, has been attacked for portraying the Catholic Church as a shadowy organisation that has spent 2,000 years covering up Christ's bloodline. Described as a "damaging and grotesque" account of their faith.

Hmm well the book is fiction so the whole fuss IS really silly and they are just generating more publicity for the film by throwing tantrums.

But it seems to me that it is also true that the Catholic Church IS a shadowy organisation that has spent the last 2000 years doing a lot of things it shouldnt have been doing even if covering up the bloodline of christ isn't one of them.

Say what you like religion has been at the root of more blood spilling than probably anything else, and the Catholics have been behind it more often than not. I havent even started on the inquisition, the pill, the latin mass, the wealth of the church especially in poor countries.

Nothing better than religion or politics to get the blood flowing

Is there really anyone out there who actually believes the Da Vinci code is fact?

Surely not.
