Get over it...

People need to calm down and realize that The Da Vinci Code is FICTION!!!!! No one ever claimed it was truth, and no one ever asked for anyone to truly believe any of its premises.

Instead, in this era of moral outrage over the STUPIDEST of things, we have people losing their fricking minds because this novel-turned-movie isn't TRUE!!

Shock and horror!! Surely movies that have religious settings can't be completely made up, right? I mean, good Lord, did everyone who saw Michael flip their wigs over a smoking, cursing, philandering angel? Do religious people who watch any of the Indian Jones movies freak out over the depictions of the Ark of the Covenant and the Holy Grail? NO!!! Because they realize that these movies are FICTIONS!!!!!

Just because a movie uses foundational principles lifted from the Bible, doesn't mean it is fact. And VERY FEW people are stupid enough to believe whatever they see in movies. These people who are afraid of this movie's effect on people's faith, must not have very much faith in their message itself. If the message of Christianity is SOOOO compelling, there should be NO WORRIES whatsoever over someone losing their faith from a ridiculous MOVIE!!!

So get over it... Let's get some popcorn and watch!

Damn them and their fascist rhetoric of:
"No chemistry exists between the hero and heroine, and motivation remains a troubling sore point," wrote reviewer Kirk Honeycutt, panning Tom Hanks' "remote, even wooden performance."

Hehe, just kidding about the above part, they're freaking out over nothing. Although I'm not sure how I'd feel about the movie if I were Catholic. I think its odd that movies like 'Luther' were not met by Catholic protests since reformationism (if that's a word) was/is a greater threat to the Catholic Church than a fictional yarn.
