You Go Girl!

Since the publication of the "Da Vinci Code" book there's has been alot of controversy about this fiction in regards to what is separated from fact and fiction. If any of you haven't read about it by now.It's been a menace to Christianity. So, that it has caused confusion to so many people of the authenticity of the life of Jesus Christ. Now the book is going to be made into a movie. If it's not enough to drive even further what's so sacred into the dirt. Protestors have confronted Tom Hanks to the point they're not going to take it anymore.

Hanks faces protest over 'The Da Vinci Code'
LOS ANGELES: Tom Hanks faced protestors, including nuns, as he began filming for the movie adaptation of Dan Brown's best-selling novel "The Da Vinci Code" in Britain.The demonstration took place on Monday outside Lincoln Cathedral - which is doubling for London's Westminster Abbey - where religious leaders only agreed to allow filming after the movie's producers made an $180,000 donation, reports the Internet Movie Database. Hanks, who will only be in Lincoln for two days, was chauffeur-driven the short distance from his five-star hotel to the historic location - and he briefly waved at a small gathering of fans who vied with demonstrators for his attention. The cathedral's dean, The Very Reverend Alec Knight, has dismissed Brown's 20 million-selling book as "a load of old tosh", but he was unable to turn down the offer of filming that gives priceless publicity to his spiritual home. However, demonstrators outside the cathedral took exception to Brown's questioning of their religious beliefs, and were led in a 12-hour prayer vigil by Catholic nun Sister Mary Michael.(http://www.newindpress.com/ )

When it comes to Hollywood really bashing Christianity and actors will do just about anything, you lose your respect.I guess I'm still miffed at the critics not giving 'The Passion of the Christ' the recognition it deserved. If you want my advice in making good movies read the Good Book there's lots of writing material if you like a challenge. It's a real shame that real talent is gone to waste.
