Decoding 'Da Vinci', from THE CLEVELAND PLAIN DEALER

Decoding 'Da Vinci': "'This book is a work of fiction. Names, characters, businesses, organizations, places, events, and incidents either are the product of the author's imagination or are used fictitiously.' "

The book's critics need to remember that this is fiction, and fiction has license. Personally, I'm extremely concerned that there is a vocal segment of American society that takes things so literally, and uses religion as a front for organized intolerance and groupthink.

A lot of them masquerade as Republicans, and Christians.

  1. I'm waiting for a certain Conservative candidate or two work anti-Dan Brown rhetoric into a campaign speech, it seems like such a given with the softcover of the book and the film are being released in an Election Year.

    The two mega churches that back Blackwell are anti-Catholic, anti-Lutheran, etc. If he took that route he'd be in serious trouble in Catholic strongholds like Mahoning County.
