In the midst of this post complaining that the Vatican is crying wolf when it complains about anti-Catholic bigotry in The Da Vinci Code, the following is stated on the left-leaning People's Republic Of Seabrook:
To be honest, I don't think anti-Catholic prejudice truly has ANYTHING to do with this issue. I do think that it has EVERYTHING to do with the collective paranoia of Vatican leadership. Let's face it; what we have here is a collection of old, out-of-touch, celibate men who have no clue about the realities of day to day life that all of us face. They feel threatened by anything new and different that can be perceived, even tangentially, as threatening their control of and dominion over millions of Catholics worldwide. In the end, it's about power, it's about control, and ultimately- repeat after me, kids- IT'S ABOUT MONEY.
Oh, I see. Evidently, the problem with The Da Vinci Code was that it was not anti-Catholic enough. Thanks for clarifying.
