The DaVinci Con
May 17, 2006 at 2:02 pm
"A lie is halfway round the world while the truth is still putting its boots on." --- Mark Twain

My first reaction to Dan Brown's novel, "The Da Vinci Code," was: "It's a work of fiction, a thriller, a page-turner. Everybody knows that." I was wrong. A young friend of mine met a classmate from Catholic high school who told him that she was seriously thinking of giving up her faith after reading "The Da Vinci Code." My friend said, "You'd give up your faith because of a novel?" She answered, "Oh, but it's all true!"

Spirit Letters

Despite the assurances of a few well meaning but terribly misguided Christian Pastors, there is simply no reason to see “The DaVinci Code.” How could any Christian possibly be entertained by a story that cruelly mocks the Son of God and claims that He is not divine? That the Bible is a complete and total fraud? And that the Church that He founded is composed of leaders who are among the worst liars and most vile people in human history who sought to cover up God's marriage?
