CATHOLIC group Opus Dei has told Sony Pictures that putting a disclaimer on the upcoming movie The Da Vinci Code stressing it is a work of fiction would be a welcome show of respect toward the Church
With the movie's opening a month away, Opus Dei and other Christian groups have been sponsoring websites telling people the novel should not be believed.
A letter posted on Good Friday holiday on Opus Dei's website cites media reports as saying Sony Pictures may consider a disclaimer.
"An eventual decision of Sony in this direction would be a sign of respect toward the figure of Jesus Christ, the history of the Church, and the religious beliefs of viewers," the group said in the letter.
can i see a disclaimer before every showing of the ten commandments? is its fiction then why should the church be bothered and if its not fiction.......then they should crawl into a corner and be quiet. the book does not show any disrespect towards jesus and any directed at the church are deserved. oh well, as sony thinks ...any publicity is good publicity. this movie is going to make a bazillion dollars at the box office regardless of what the church does.
by the way did they show a disclaimer before the passion of the christ?
cmon , it tuesday. things arent going to get done by themselves.
