Banning the “Code”

April 7, 2006

I’ve never been a fan of the “DaVinci Code,” having heard its device pawned off as fact, rather than fiction. But a Christian group has gone too far. The group, The Christian Council of Korea, based in South Korea, claims the movie defiles the sanctity of Jesus and distorts facts, as reported in the Guardian. Of course it “distorts” facts. It’s fiction. The Koreans are not the first Christians pissed about the premise of the book: Jesus married Mary Magdalene, producing scions for two millennia. Maybe this is what we should expect when a Templar conspiracy is treated with as much seriousness as a Bush-Cheney-Rumsfiled invasion conspiracy. Or is it that when a society cannot distinguish between fact and fiction, as in a “Million Little Pieces.”
