I used to watch TV news and yell at the box. Now I jump up from the couch, sit at the computer and begin to type laughing maniacally saying "Wait until they read this." It's more fun than squashing tadpoles

Da Vinci Code release sparks calls for fatal hunger strikes in India

What is up with the Catholics? The way they are reacting to "The Da Vinci Code" makes one think they have joined the "Religion of Peace." First a Cardinal calls for legal action against the movie, now some group in India wants people to starve themselves to death with a hunger strike. Does no one in the Catholic Church read their Bible anymore? Nowhere does it call for God's people to defend him. Nowhere does it call for people to do harm to themselves or anyone else because someone disputes the Word of God or blasphemes His name.

Get a grip. Christianity is just fine, we don't have to make it Islam. The Religion of Peace wants to enforce god's law on the world. The Bible teaches that Christians should make disciples of all nations. There is a huge difference. Disciples are called to come and have the choice to not answer. Bringing the world under Islam does not leave room for dissent. God does not want goats to live like sheep, all one gets are unhappy goats. Transform the goats into sheep and they will live as sheep by their own volition. Leave the world to look at their movies, but be ready to speak the truth with gentleness and respect.

I just wanted to say that I totally agree with you. Catholics should not feel called upon to defend themselves or their religion against a movie. Let's face it, there are attacks made against Catholocism every single day and it would be impossible to address all of them. Plus, to call for these outlandish hunger strikes and whatnot will inevitably draw more attention to the movie and have the opposite effect in the end.
