More Da Vinci Code...

The brouhaha continues in the Catholic church over the mediocre novel The Da Vinci Code.

I really believe Pope Benedict and his team, if allowed, would go back to banning and burning books...but so would fundamentalists of any ilk. Christian fundamentalists, Muslim fundamentalists...all think they know what is best for us. What hubris. And how destructive to the world. The evil that has been, and continues to be, perpetrated upon the world in the name of fundamentalist religion is overwhelming. And it all starts with an idea that is spoken or written...a novel, a silly little novel in this case. A work of fiction. And they get up in arms. Ridiculous.
