This is a result of a discussion between Frogman and Phillip (yours truly). Where I told Frogman that I would agree with him on the fact that the da Vinci Code was a very, very bad book. It is already well known that we disagree on The Passion. Rather than debating this on the "da Vinci Code" subject line, I am opening a new subject. Do any of you see any comparisons between the da Vinci Code and The Passion? Here is my point: The Passion may have Catholic ICONS, but it never questions the diety of Christ as the Son of God. The da Vinci Code says that Jesus fainted on the cross, married Mary Magdeline and their relatives are alive and well (St. Clair) and living in France. Jesus was ONLY important because he was a direct and PURE descendent of King David from both his Mother and Father's (Joseph?) side, therefore of the utmost in royal blood and this blood has remained pure to this day. The Passion shows Jesus dying on the cross and rising again. The da Vinci Code said Jesus either fainted on the cross or was secretly revived or whatever. The Passion has real Catholic things in it, but nobody has explained satisfactorily how they destroy the doctrine of Christ (as far as the movie itself is concerned). That is, if you look at the movie, by itself, without trying to make so much about the Catholic's "wrong" beliefs that are not shown in the movie. The da Vinci Code says the Catholic church sends out armed people to "take care" of the Knight's Templar who protect the "grail" which is actually Mary Magdeline's bones (the cup of Christ -- his wife) and keep them quiet. The Knights Templar were paid off for centuries until the Catholic church tried to kill them, to keep the secret that Christianity was not true. Frogman want to make Phillip believe that Phillip should understand Frogman's contempt for Passion, like Phillip's contempt for da Vinci Code. Phillip disagree!! Hop in folks!
