Catholic group urges Da Vinci disclaimer

This is a good idea. I mean, how are we supposed to know if a movie is fiction without a disclaimer. I fully support this, and I assume we'll be getting disclaimers on all Sony moview from now on, like Spider-Man 3, for example. When Spider-Man first came out, I was all set to travel to New York to see if I could meet the superhero, when someone told me he wasn't real. I wouldn't want anyone else to make the same mistake.

Why are these religous extremists so fond of disclaimers, whether on movies or textbooks? Do people actually even read them or give a shit about them? I always thought people were smart enough to decide for themselves what to believe, even if a movie tells them something different, but maybe I give them too much credit.

Was there a disclaimer on Passion of the Christ? Just curious.

Stop making sense, John. It's obnoxious.

I still think the church should have just ignored the whole thing. It's not like the book is swaying any true believers anyway, is it? As it is, they've turned into Dan Brown's marketing firm.

Relgious censorship, anything the church disagress with, they try having censored.

As far as the Divinci Code itself, i find it intriguing, as i beleive the bible we have today, does not tell the full story, more it is a propaganda pamphlet, and there are hidden truths that were left out that would shed some light on the lies of the early church.
