Ron Howard to make The Da Vinci Code into a movie. Loli - 27/04/2004 12:18:13 AM

The New York Times reports that there seems to be a whole campaing by some religious fundamentalists to stop this #1 bestseller book from becoming a movie.

Here's an excerpt:

The novel "The Da Vinci Code" may be sowing doubt about basic Christian beliefs, a host of Christian churches, clergy members and Bible scholars are rushing to rebut it.

In 13 months, readers have bought more than six million copies of the book, a historical thriller that claims Christianity was founded on a cover-up — that the church has conspired for centuries to hide evidence that Jesus was a mere mortal, married Mary Magdalene and had children whose descendants live in France.

So Mel Gibson got to make his movie, why is this frowned upon?
