What Would Jesus Review?
In Australia, the Anglican Church is paying for a short trailer to run in movie theaters that will depict how Jesus might respond to the wacky theories in "The Da Vinci Code." It also sends people to a website where they can get the "facts." Uh, my guess is Jesus would probably say, "It's just a movie." They are giving "Da Vinci" much more credence than it would get if they just laughed it off. The book is a crazily over-the-top spy thriller combined with every imaginable conspiracy theory that has ever existed. Sure, some people might wonder "Is this true?" but most recognize it as just a silly bit of pulp fiction. Okay, I wrote this posting. NOW will Opus Dei stop haunting my every step?
