The DaVinci Code

I love hearing about how The DaVinci Code was all sacrilegious, and full of falsehoods, and blahhh blahhh blahhh....

I grew up Catholic. I grew up learning from my Priest that Mary Magdalene was a prostitute who was saved by JC. Let's talk about falsehoods. MM being a whore is one, and the official Catholic story on her was, therefore, a falsehood. Even well after the Catholic Church declared that, well, maybe MM being a prostitute was just a biiiiiiiiiiiit of a fib in 1969, the local Priest spewed that nonsense.

Funny thing is - The DaVinci Code is fiction. It is ALLOWED to state things that are not true. It is called storytelling. But the Catholic Church is not supposed to be that way. Truth before the lord, and all that stuff.

But, bah, why does it matter. The Bible... The DaVinci Code... Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone... All fiction. All written by men or women to put forth an entertaining story. Only one has led to wars though.
