Ridiculous - Opus Dei

Maybe they'll stick the actual copies of the book in plastic covers and put them on the back shelf of the magazine rack at the bookstore. Or is the assumption children watch movies but don't read?
Catholic group Opus Dei has called for the film version of The Da Vinci Code novel to be given an adult rating. The organisation says children should be protected from what it calls "insidious" lies about Catholicism.

Spokesman Marc Carroggio said: "Any adult can distinguish reality from fiction. But you cannot expect a child to make proper judgements."

And yet they go to confirmation class and are expected to do at least a little constructive thinking. Has anyone thought about starting a club to put The Da Vinci Code in the top drawer of every hotel nightstand?

Update: oh, wait, wait...they're going to bless a Hooter's in Waco. I'm sure the kiddies will understand that. No lies or contradictions involved there.

Lord,
Lead us not into temptation
But deliver us from evil
And restaurants with no large-breasted
Hotties in tiny stretchy shirts.
Amen.
