Hope you lose, Mr. Brown
The Da Vinci Code movie may now be delayed. Turns out, its author, Dan Brown, may well have plagiarised the central thesis of the book from two other writers.
Catholic Answers nicely skewers what's wrong with the book and why Catholics especially should get themselves educated.
I find that there is an inverse ratio here: the less you know about the historical foundations of the Church the more entrancing you'll find the book. Whereas Catholics with even a half-baked idea of how the New Testament was written and gathered find The Da Vinci Code a plodding, sloppy, dumb ass attempt at entertainment.
One more thing -- Opus Dei has no monks, Dan, as a simple phone call would verify.
