It’s a Novel you Freaking Idiot

The religious right have now stepped into overdrive. With possible protests nationwide, those opposed to the Da Vinci Code are flipping out over the buzz of the accompanying movie staring Tom Hanks and Audrey Tautou. Before I go any further I would like to state one last time. It’s a Novel num-nuts, and a good one at that. I know that some who never had any formal education might not understand what a novel or for that matter, fiction is.

Don’t blame me, don’t blame James Fry or Dan Brown. You can blame Clinton if you want, that a given anyway. Trust me, your not going to hell for reading a novel or for that matter, any book. So do yourself a favor and stop piling wood into your blazing book burning inferno and pick up a copy and read it. I was talking to someone the other day and they explained to me with much distaste that The Da Vinci Code is going to destroy America’s churches. Really? I poked further, asking him why it was so evil. But for some reason all he could say what I’ve been hearing for months: The Da Vinci Code is evil, don’t read it. Oh yea, and where not sure why.

I’m not going to sit here and debate all or any of the idea’s brought up in the novel, why? Because it’s a novel, nothing more, nothing less.

Do I believe in The Da Vinci Code? Why don’t you ask me if I believe in The Great Gatsby, Gone with the Wind or Star Wars. You really want to know why I don’t talk about the Death Star or the Rebel Alliance? Because it’s not freaking real.
