Have you ever heard a fellow Catholic say the Da Vinci Code blasphemy “is just a work of fiction,” and that there is no need to protest against it? I have. And when I do, my blood pressure goes up…
If you’re still wondering, here’s a Catholic mom’s account to consider:
"My daughter has Multiple Sclerosis, the progressive type which is anticipated by doctors to limit her 37 year-old life. She read *The Da Vinci Code * and since that time, has turned away from the Bible as ‘the words of men, not God’ and strongly verbalizes the theories supported in the book regarding Jesus and his ‘marriage to Mary Magdalene’ who is the ‘head of the church,’ and has stated it should be Mary, the mother of Jesus, whom we should worship. It is such a twisted view of biblical history that I am helpless to counter it!
“As a result of this hideous travesty of the right of free speech, my daughter is missing the chance to know Jesus in her last years due to the insanity spewed forth by this ‘harmless fiction.’ I support all efforts to protest against those who attempt to mold and malign the words and life of Jesus to suit themselves and their questionable agendas.”
This is not a single, isolated case. I know of many others. We must do something, as a Catholic community.
Consider signing this protest petition to Columbia Pictures, the producer of the upcoming Da Vinci Code movie. Go to…
Thanks and God bless!
