Catholic Diocese of Wilmington - davinci decoded
The Catholic Diocese of Wilmington will be running a series of regional talks about the many errors contained in the DaVinci Code. Here's the schedule:
May 8th - St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Social Hall, 345 Bear-Christiana Rd., Bear, DE
May 16th - Ss. Peter & Paul School Cafeteria, 900 High St., Easton, MD
May 17th - St. Elizabeth High School Auditorium, 1500 Cedar St., Wilmington, DE
May 22nd - Delaney Hall at St. Ann Church, Route 26, Bethany Beach, DE
May 25th - Holy Cross Early Learning Center, South State St., Dover, DE
May 30th - St. John the Beloved Church, 907 Milltown Rd., Wilmington, DE
June 1st - Immaculate Heart of Mary Church, Shipley & Weldin Rds., Wilmington, DE
All sessions run from 7 PM to 9 PM. All are welcome. Come and learn the truth, rather than the lies taught first in the book and now in the movie.

Good thing you subservient Catholics realize the book has been shelved in the "fiction" section for over three years.

I guess the Church is doing well financially these days to promote such drivel to combat a "fiction" film.

The problem is, people believe that Dan Brown is telling the truth, as he himself claims in interviews and on the "FACT" page of the book. People really believe the Jesus married Mary Magadalen and had children with her. I've heard from a number of otherwise intelligent people that it really makes them think about what else is going on.

The book is based on lies and it's starting to affect people's fatih. Is the Church supposed to sit back and allow herself to be attacked, even by fiction?

Umm...yeah. Religion is MEANT to be attacked. Religion isn't necessarily logic, remember. The Bible, whether you believe it or not, is a nice collection of *stories* that have not been proven over time. It's one's faith that guides them to believe the parables within. Faith is different from truth. It is surely logical to believe that Mary Magdalene married Jesus. Who knows? Do I think Brown should pass it off as fact? No. I have not read the book. I refuse. I think it's part and parcel of authors dumbing down Americans with abbreviated, two-page chapters. I've always said: if something like The Da Vinci Code is winning over mainstream America so easily, then I probably won't like it. Because the taste of Americans is pretty crappy.
