:D - The art of Thornwolf — LiveJournal
Dear San Diegan Christians protesting the Da Vinci Code.


It's just Jesus fan fiction. If you wanna protest something go look at bible_slash with their parings of: Jesus/Aslan/Satan/White Witch/and Implied Turkish Delight

:D *love and kisses*

well said.
And you know the funny? Chile is a christian country, and all the Church makes a call to "don't see the movie, because it makes fun about Jebus" :/

HEE. I just saw that movie today and I got to throw popcorn at the protesters. Itwasfun. XD

And I don't understand why they can't just understand that it's a fictional story. FIC. TION. AL. As in: NOT REAL. kthx. Blah. SILLY PEOPLE.

Ooooh that sounds like fun.

I'm a Christian but I also try to not take things so damn seriously. LOL appropriate icon btw considering the circumstances ;>

The reason why they're protesting is because the author basically claims the book is revealing truth, and not *just* a work of fiction.

Yes, the book says "A Novel" on the cover and it's categorized in the 'novel/fiction' section, but when you open up it up, on the first page is a disclaimer that states""All descriptions of artwork, architecture, documents, and secret rituals are accurate."

And that part right there is the big problem that everyone is protesting. Because with that statement the author is stating that the book is 'accurate', and not just 'fan fiction'.

I for one, couldn't figure out what the big hubbub was over the book/movie or why everyone was BELIEVING it, and thinking it was true.. until I read that disclaimer. And I was like.. "Oh.. geez, he's trying to pass fiction off as FACT, and people are believing it, because they don't know any better."

I think the whole thing is ludicrous (on BOTH sides) because everyone's believing everything and this idiot author is a nutjob. Might be a good book, it sounds like it, and if I had more time I would read it (I'm seeing the movie to counter that..although I know its not the same thing) but for the love of...well...God...ITS FICTION!

I don't think the scores of "Omg was Jesus MARRIED?" documentaries on the history channel/discovery channel were necessary either.

Forgot this in my comment.. "That said, I still think protesting is stupid. It brings more attention to the film. They just shouldn't go. But picketing is a bad idea."

Well it makes them look crazy too, which is just another thing for people to tack onto "normal" Christians. THANKS A LOT GUYS ;D Way to win one for the team.

I for one am going to see the movie and will be sure to wave to anyone picketing, tickets in hand. I enjoy a good movie, and I'm not going to let a bunch of folks tell me that I can't go see a movie cuz I might, oh noez...BELIEVE it as the honest to god truth. IM SUPPORTING THE HOLLYWOOD/GAY/DEMOCRATIC "AGENDA" :D

I saw the movie, it kicked ass. I read the book, it kicked ass. When I got out of the theater, there was a news crew there that asked me my opinion on boycotting it and later I was on the news telling everyone to open their minds and go see it XD WIN.

bahaha i know man, it's like, "jeez we're not saying it's canon :|"

This only reminds me of the group of Christians that sat in a hotel lobby or something tearing up stacks of Harry Potter books while happily commenting about doing GODS BIDDING.

Dude. They're freaking FANTASY books for kids. Honestly... anything that get kids to read these days is fine by me.


I dunno, I'm gonna stick by the "if people want to believe a fiction novel then they're dumb, but SHUT UP and let them believe it" rule here. Why do people have to contantly make Chritians look like closed minded retards? All those people obviously have their heads up their butts or they'd see that mass amounts of protestors just means more air time on more channels to PROMOTE the film! Doi!

LOL totally. I didn't even know the movie was out until I heard about the protests. =)

Oh geez, da vinci code is just a book, might be a bit of well done research behind it but it's still a friggin book!

Well, it wasn't unexpected. Any kind of criticism about any religion and someone will start complaining, killing or whatever. The best thing to do is ignore them, they'll get tired soon.

I would certainly hope most people don't go watching a movie and swear allegiance to Tom Hanks as their new Messiah for showing them the light. Most people, I think, go to movies for entertainment (which is why the movie United 93 has done so poorly).

I say Hollywood should make a movie in a similar vein about Mouhommud--the Muslims really know how to throw a hissy-fit.

It's like with The Last Temptation movie back in the 80s or 90s. The more Christians protested, the more people went to see what the fuss was over
