catholic cardinal debunks dan brown's da vinci code

i am quite glad that someone higher up in the catholic church has finally said something about that silly book by dan brown. yes, silly.....even though it's a best seller. the story that jesus had a child with mary magdalen for starters was never even in the oral tradition of the church, yet people have gobbled up the book, and are continuing to do so. the main concern i have is that there are many people out there who are unchurched--whose knowledge of the great stories of the faith is minimal. and then here comes a book which is just pouring with pure fiction and fabrication, and people think it's the truth.

anyway, tarcisio cardinal bertone, the archbishop of genoa, has broken the church's official silence on the da vinci code by saying that "The book is everywhere. There is a very real risk that many people who read it will believe that the fables it contains are true."

read the BBC story of this here.
