I Am Bismark

protests over the da vinci code…

just some thoughts: i think the whole thing is kind of silly. i guess as a mormon, i really have no issues with jesus have married or having children. it has always been one of those “maybe but who knows” type of things in church, so i really doubt there can be any latter-day saints who would be upset over some of the messages in this film. and it’s almost as if they took the whole covering up of events and missing scriptures straight out of a sunday school lesson on the apostasy.

i think this uproar is even less justified than the muslim protests over the cartoons of mohammed. i mean, it’s not as if the book/film makes fun of christ. it merely questions some oft held beliefs. a pretty silly thing to be upset about.

and while i’m on the subject, the lds church did ask hbo to put a disclaimer at the end of their polygamy show, but i think there is a big difference there. people who watch the show could easily think that mormons still practice polygamy from what they see. but i really doubt anyone is going to go up to a christian after this movie and say “oh, hey, you are the ones who believe jesus got married.” i dunno. it just seems like a whole lot of nothing to get riled up over.
