This is probably blasphemy...

... but, it strikes me that the Roman Catholic church really doesn't help itself by declaring that the Da Vinci Code is "blasphemous" and producing a documentary in rebuttal.[1]

Opus Dei looks particularly bad for demanding a "this is fiction" disclaimer before the movie

This plus the whole recurring Harry Potter debacle makes me wonder what Christian groups in general are saying about the people they deal with.

Why is it that they don't think people can understand that some books are based on actual events and some are make-believe....

Wouldn't you think that they'd be big advocates of the idea that people can tell "real" from "fiction" and that they'll only believe "real" books....

Unless of course they know that people will believe fictional stories... which, given their own religious source material....
