Imagine the DiVinci Code as a Cartoon

February 27th, 2006 by Kevin

I gotta admit, I can\’t wait for the DiVinci movie to come out. I was pretty happy when I saw the casting because each of the roles was cast with an actor that looks pretty damn close to how I pictured the character in my mind. However, I honestly don\’t have real high expectations because I can\’t really see how they could make such a book into an entertaining movie. Alot of the thrill of the book was not the action, it was reading the explanation of the religious symbology and how they supposedly connect. It was a damn good book and I loved reading it. Loved Angle&Demons even better.

Now while I realize it was fiction, I can still enjoy it. And I can\’t understand for the life of me, people that get upset and have to cry out to everyone how fake it is. It\’s fiction. No shit.

Honestly, I have yet to meet a single person who thought the book was a factual telling of the story of Jesus Christ. Yet, if you listen to some people rant and rave about how fake it is you\’d think there were entire cities of zombie hordes calling information asking for the phone number for the heir to Jesus Christ.

It\’s a book people. It\’s a fictional book, that many people happened to find entertaining. For you to rant and rave and take horrible offense is a parody of yourselves. Granted you aren\’t burning down embassies but there are similarities to be drawn to the Danish cartoon hubbub. Stop taking yourselves so seriously. If your faith is so fragile that a simple book threatens to destroy it, how do you manage to cling to it?

    I don’t have a problem with it, but it’s easy to get caught up in the little things.
