    Cardinal urges legal action against Da Vinci Code
    Sun May 7, 2006 10:13 AM ET

    By Philip Pullella

    VATICAN CITY (Reuters) - In the latest Vatican broadside against "The Da Vinci Code", a leading cardinal says Christians should respond to the book and film with legal action because both offend Christ and the Church he founded.

    Cardinal Francis Arinze, a Nigerian who was considered a candidate for pope last year, made his strong comments in a documentary called "The Da Vinci Code-A Masterful Deception."...

    reminds me of Murphy Brown's dialog with Dan Quayle

    Dan Brown has been outed for his lies a number of times now. Taking legal action would lead nowhere. Anyone interested in conspiracy theories have ample choices on the internet and anyone interested in the truth have ample choices in the non-finction section. Getting your theology from an amateurishly written novel is just plain silly.

    As silly as having a debate between a real live theologan and the themes in a work of fiction?

    By the way hoovs, no response on the immigration thread?

    Yet people get their global warming facts from a thriller writer.

    The debate is with Dan Brown and his claims of truth behind his book.

    Really? I mean, we both know why you decided not to continue with the Abraham argument but why did I decide not to continue with the immigration argument? Could it be your tendency to blow people off? Hmmm.

    A bit of a difference there. Crichton wasn't trying to rewrite history to seel a book. In fact, if you read the articel, he's not trying to debunk global warming at all.

    You attempt to side track every point. Theres a response to your Abraham point in my last post.

    Oh, you mean the one you addressed to vw? How did that address your misrepresentation of the story of Abraham? If you want, you can elaborate on the other thread. I'll be gone for a while.

    Huh? I read the book, and it seemed to be all about debunking global warming...

    Another hijacked thread.

    Back to topic, I've also read Angels and Demons, which is the predecessor to The DaVinci Code. It really plays with the Catholic Church.

    In both cases, the Catholic Church should have a lot more to worry about than a couple of books and a movie of fiction.

    I'm not a member of the Catholic Church.

    I am a Christian.

    I think taking legal matters from this book is the wrong approach.

    If anything - it should give the teachers in Catholic Sunday school rooms around the globe - a golden opportunity - to educate.

    I teach our college class at my Church. We just completed a 3 week study on the subject. By the 3rd week, there were over 80 people who came to the class.

    I think making a legal matter out of it - is missing an opportunity.

    I haven't read the book. I was referring to Crichton's statements before Congress.

    I actually liked angels and demons better than TDC..

    But sueing would only work against the church, the more media attention TDC gets the more people who will want to read/see it..

    The dan brown books are nice thrillers with a grain of fact, if you read them as truth you should see a doctor..

    btw I read all his books and he seems to use the same 'tricks' in all of them, after 4 books you kind of get tired of it IMHO..

    I liked Davinci Code more than Angel's & Demons, but I agree they're fiction with a grain of truth to them, but then again aren't all novels? Robin Cook for example writes the "medical thrillers". The only reason the **** hits the fan with these is because he dared to use the Vatican for the subject matter. A hundred years ago he would have been burned
