Da Vinci Christianity

Laurie Goodstein calls the "Da Vinci Code" an "historical marker — encapsulating in one muddled movie an era in which many Christian believers have assimilated a whole lot of new and unorthodox ideas, as well as half-truths and conspiracy thinking, into their faith, while still seeing it as Christianity."

The book and movie, writes Goodstein, "reinforces doubts that some modern Christians already have about the origins of the Bible and the authenticity of the Jesus story."

Maybe that's why the religious right is attacking it so fiercely.
