The DaVinci Protest

With the release of Dan Brown’s “The DaVinci Code” coming to the big screen, a 61-year-old nun protested outside of the cathedral where it was filmed in London for 12 hours by praying the Rosary on the concrete in reparation for the lies of the movie against Jesus.

Many view this book offensive because it states lies about Christ and the Church including that Jesus was married to Mary Magdalene, had a child with her, and she started the papacy. Some claim this is fiction and is no harm, but while I watched the program many people talked about how they believe it as the truth! I’m certainly opposed to a movie like this that distorts the truth, and the Only Truth at that, just to make money.

August 2006 Update: Visit Jesus Decoded and my later post on this.

Probably not. I would put a disclaimer saying that everything in here is against the Church and should not be read. It is all fiction and none is true.

That's my opinion. I can't say for sure since I'm not a "supreme ruler"

I have to agree with Auron on this one. We really have no way of validating either side.

One of the curious points in my mind is that in Jesus day, to be truly faithful, Rabbi's were required to marry and bear children. Jesus is repeatedly referred to by the title "Rabbi" in the bible, so this is probably where this hypothesis stems from, that in order for Jesus to be a faithful Rabbi he would have had to marry and have children, though I'm not sure if this requirement had to be met before being elevated to Rabbi.

In Jewish tradition, if a child is born to an interfaith marriage, the child can only be considered Jewish if the Mother is Jewish. Otherwise, the child child must convert to the religion. This is still practiced today.

I mention this because this may also play into the hypothesis that Jesus' alleged child was female. A faithful Rabbi would want to have a daughter to carry on the Jewish faith, thus we get Sarah.

Again, this is pure speculation on both sides, as no one has the ability to really confirm or deny any of this, so I too am just chaulking it up to entertainment and let the chips fall where they may.

God Bless
