Da Vinci Code

The stupid movie keeps airing on TV now, and my husband keeps watching it. It's right down his alley, right in keeping with all the other theologically-challenged, conspiracy-theory movies/books. A girl gets weary of all the Hollywoodian conspiracy-based, theologically faulty movies. Everyone knows the movies are fiction. Unfortunately, what people don't realize is that the Hollywood version of Catholic theology is equally fiction. God doesn't forgive murderers? He lets them burn? Or from Van Heusen, the souls of whole families are cursed to Hell unless they accomplish a certain deed? Or from yet another movie, (don't remember which), you make a mistake and God cannot forgive you, unless... (insert condition here).

Gosh people, if you don't know what you are talking about, then for goodness sakes, write about something else.

Oh right, it's politically correct to be theologically erronous. People would rather believe that Catholics have something to hide. (Roll eyes)
