New Toon: The Da Vinci Code Activity Sheet



Who would have thought the major threat to an 1800 year old institution was a blockbuster novel? When setting dissenters on fire is no longer an acceptable option, call for a boycott. Heaven Forefend people watch a fictional movie that suggests an alternate history!

Unfortunately, it takes a sensational thriller or movie starring Tom Hanks to even get people exposed to the notion that Christ may not be divine. Catholic scholars are quick to point out the historical inaccuracies of the book; if only they would apply that rigorous skepticism to their own faith.

I don’t know if Jesus was married to Mary Magdalene, but I do lend more support to theories I know are physically possible. A man can marry a woman and have kids. A man cannot be born from a virgin, walk on water, and rise from the dead–that I know of. Extraordinary claims need to be proven with evidence. I don’t see any hard evidence supporting the theory that Jesus was divine.

Oh, and buy Attitude 3! It’s more insightful than The Da Vinci Code and funnier than the Bible.
