[About the movie The Da Vinci Code]

Atheists have absent or missing dads, hence reject the faith of the heavenly Father.
So what does this film break down to? The terrible taboo hidden shameful secret. Faith and churches, scriptures and art are turned into bearers of an unnatural unacceptable secret, much like the hidden homosexual nature..are You have a deity who makes the supreme sacrifice, now gets married and has earthly pursuits. This is like the dad who took off for the hot B' secretary, leaving family and the duty to raise the kids behind....you have the sexy albino monk trying to hide the secret. The Gnostics were pervs if nothing else, this is the homoerotic sexualizing of jesus.
All very Freudian, Hitler, a gay atheist who did not believe in Jesus, would have loved this film.

And dont tell me atheists hate this film because it promotes a historic jesus. no mainstream historians doubt a historic jesus, thats an unreasonable position.

The Gnostics were pervs, but Abraham, Lot, those guys? Sweethearts.

And a nice Godwin for the cherry on top.

Have you read the book? It is, after all, a work of fiction. I suppose your taste in fiction runs more into the \"biblical\" vein.
Are all fundies closet queens? The vitriol against homosexuals makes me really wonder.
You got a secret there, Rabbi?

And don't get me started on Disney's Monsters, Inc.! First, there are no such things as monsters. Second, nice fuzzy things aren't very good monsters. Experts agree. Do they really expect us to fall for this? I wasn't convinced.

Yeah, did you ever see the Producers?

Hitler was a gay atheist? Yeah....

Funny thing is, much of Freud's hypothesies have been found to be bunk.

\"Atheists have absent or missing dads, hence reject the faith of the heavenly Father.\"

Shut up you presumptuous assbite. I am as atheistic as a person can be, but my parents were happily married for 37 years.


\"no mainstream historians doubt a historic jesus, thats an unreasonable position.\"

Not actually, asshat.

\"Atheists have absent or missing dads, hence reject the faith of the heavenly Father.\"

Haven't seen this classic in a while. You really went out of your way to dig that one up, didn't ya?

\"So what does this film break down to? The terrible taboo hidden shameful secret. Faith and churches, scriptures and art are turned into bearers of an unnatural unacceptable secret, much like the hidden homosexual nature..\"

Somehow I just knew he'd work 'homosexual' into his post the second I saw \"The terrible taboo hidden shameful secret\".

\"The Gnostics were pervs if nothing else, this is the homoerotic sexualizing of jesus.\"

I'm confused. How is the description previous to this part supposed to be considered \"homoerotic sexualizing of jesus\"?

\"no mainstream historians doubt a historic jesus, thats an unreasonable position.\"

Unreasonable only if you have a good portion of your life invested in it being true.

If atheists have absent or missing fathers, shouldn't they be intrinsically drawn to the heavenly father as a replacement for their real dad?

This reminds me of the fundie rhetoric about how they're mystified that atheists don't continuously murder and rape without God's wrath deterring them: it says a lot more about the fundamentalist and his morals than the atheist.

<<< Atheists have absent or missing dads >>>

Nope. My dad's still around, Catholic as a matter of fact.

<<< Hitler, a gay atheist who did not believe in Jesus >>>

0 for 3. He had a mistress (and married the day before the two of them committed suicide), and he continually professed to be Catholic (whether he actually was or not, only he knew, but nothing even in his personal writings suggests otherwise).

<<< And dont tell me atheists hate this film because it promotes a historic jesus. >>>

I'm not fond of the story just because any story that takes something I'm familiar with and does something completely unexpected gives me a hard time with the necessary suspension of disbelief to enjoy the story. Obviously fictional settings are easy, as are somewhat realistic events in realistic settings. But this takes it too far. Same problem I had with National Treasure, incidentally - all fine and dandy to suggest that there's a hidden treasure, but the Declaration of Independence being part of the key to it? My brain spends too much time wrapping itself around that idea for me to enjoy such a story.

Atheists aren't so insecure in their beliefs that they hate movies that challenge them. You're thinking of Christians.

I love the associations these guys have...

Hitler would love this film! Can these people research any other dictator, I'm getting sick of the 'hitler was rude' and 'hitler was an atheist'.

\"And dont tell me atheists hate this film because it promotes a historic jesus.\"

Atheists are smart enough to know what the word \"fiction\" means - if they hate the film, it's because of bad acting, scripting, and/or production values.

You really have a major problem with the concept of Fiction don't you. It's just a story.... It's just a story.....It's just..................

Isn't Jesus' actual historical existence pretty contested? Last I heard, there weren't any contemporary mentions of him.

I'm surprised this hasn't been nominated for this month's Worst Godwin Award.

How does the premise of The Da Vinci Code -- that Jesus was married to Mary Magdalene -- translate into \"the homoerotic sexualizing of Jesus\"? Was the good Rabbi *that* desperate to get in a swipe at the gays?

To ChiefRabbiD

My dad hated the book. He said it was poorly written and poorly researched. As he has actually read the gnostic books that are being referenced in the story (in Greek, no less), he's got a good idea as to what was actually said
in things like the Gospel of Mary. But he'd probably find your arguments against the \"Da Vinci Code\" just as crap as the book.

If you're going to argue against the theology in it, know what you're talking about. Otherwise, just say you think it's bad fiction. You'll look less stupid.

\"leaving family and the duty to raise the kids behind\"

Yeah, that reminds me of Jesus and his apostles.

hitler was very christian.

This was not clearly written. I have a hard time following your points.

He seems to also believe in the \"pink swastika\" claim.
