"Boycott Da Vinci Code film": top Vatican official

...The latest broadside came from Archbishop Angelo Amato, the number two official in the Vatican doctrinal office which was headed by Pope Benedict until his election last year.

Amato, addressing a Catholic conference in Rome, called the book "stridently anti-Christian .. full of calumnies, offences and historical and theological errors regarding Jesus, the Gospels and the Church."

He added: "I hope that you all will boycott the film."

I wonder if the Archbishop knows that The Da Vinci Code is just a movie. It's not a National Geographic documentary or anything. It's just a movie.

I just love the way the Catholic Church shows it's faith in it's followers faith.

Don't you just love organized religion?
