Billy Graham Issues Fatwa against Dan Brown

Movie lovers nervous as evangelist promises "to rain down fire and sulphur" on theatres showing Da Vinci Code.

"Dan Brown has ducked scholarly debate by employing a novel-thriller format to deny the deity of Christ. So, let's see how well he ducks THIS," explained the aging evangelist in a grainy video broadcast Saturday on CNN.

The message concludes with Graham waving an AK-47 and stating slowly the specifications of the ammunition, "7.62 millimeter...full...metal...jacket..."

From a Beverly Hills bistro, actor and secular saint, George Clooney responded "on behalf of artists everywhere," applauding Brown for his "courageous exploration of the truth. I mean, he could have copped out and written a slam against Islam, but to take the fight to the dangerous, bigoted, and violent that's bravery."

Clooney then concluded the interview by ordering something way off the menu in fluent French.

President Bush expressed regret that Christian Evangelicals would resort to violence in response to Brown's attack on their religion. In his Saturday radio address the President criticized the book's purpose, but urged Christians everywhere to follow the example of "our Islamic friends - followers of the religion of peace."

University leaders are gathering in Boston next week to host an open forum designed to foster understanding towards Christians and their views. We must start by understanding their anger," explained organizer Ward Churchill.

"If we don't achieve mutual respect and tolerance for one another, then Billy Graham has won."

I never thought I'd find myself sayng this, but I'm so glad that Ward Churchill is out there speaking on my behalf.

Now if you'll kindly step out of the way, I'm off to behead Ron Howard and Tom Hanks. ;)

Truthfully, the Da Vinci Code is the last movie I'll ever pay money to see with either of those two involved with it.

They're free to do what they want, and I'm free to decline to pay for it.

The Da Vinci Code is to Christians what Holocaust denial is to Jews. If an author tried to pawn a story based on that off as "basically non-fiction," no amount of big name stars or flashy marketing would persuade read it simply as "a good story."

The premise and source materials do not stand up to academic scrutiny.

I'm calling bullshit on them all.

"The Da Vinci Code is to Christians what Holocaust denial is to Jews"

clearly. fiction writing is just soooo offensive. oh my gosh, I mean an entire faith could be destroyed by a movie. forget the romans, they couldn't have toppled christianity at all! only one author has that ability!
