A Thought About That Movie

Yeah, I know, you're probably as tired as I am of hearing about "The Da Vinci Code". I haven't read the book (I'm trying to read Angels and Demons, slow going). I don't plan to see the movie, since it does not look appealing. But Bishop Spong has an interesting article on Belief.net - talking about how people did not seem concerned about inaccuracies in "The Passion of the Christ" which was portrayed as true - assuming you believe the Bible to be true and yet "The Da Vinci Code" - which is billed as fiction is both being challenged by various people and believed by others. The article is: Bad Movie, But Don't Dismiss It (Warning: the article does go on to say that he feels there are some things raised in "The Da Vinci Code" that could be correct, so if reading a Biblical scholar's thoughts on that will bug you, don't follow the link).
