Catholic Bishops Present Jesus Decoded

Like the shepherds they are, these bishops are concerned over even one person who might believe Dan Brown’s joke:

Reporters have asked whether even a bestselling novel can seriously damage a Church of one billion believers. No, in the long run, it cannot. But that is not the point. The pastoral concern of the Church is for each and every person. If only one person were to come away with a distorted impression of Jesus Christ or His Church, our concern is for that person as if he or she were the whole world.

    I think it is very likely that more than 1 persons impressions and faith in Jesus have chanced b/c of Dan Brown’s book…

    but I don’t think the website these bishops have created will change anything, but I commend their efforts.

    I think people leaving christianity just because of a book Dan Brown wrote is absurd. They need to look at the bigger picture before making important decision like that! Do research, read the other books printed on this subject, and then see how you feel. I, however, feel the this is a very valid subject. For years the Catholic church has lied and decieved. It’s about time people start realising it. I suggest people watch the documentary by Henry Lincoln.

    The problem with people today is that they know so little of their faith. That fault lies at the feet of parents who never passed on the fatih. There is now a generation and a half who don’t care, don’t know, and don’t understand the faith. People who are confused and are looking for some answers pick up Dan Brown’s book and they believe they have found the answers.
    The book is full of blasphemy. Yes I know that it is a novel. But when one reads the ‘facts’ page Brown claims that all art, history, and secert rituals are true. The Catholic Church has no secert rituals.
    If the Church through history were determined to silence and demonize Mary Magdalene, they failed, considering that by the 8th century her feast day had been established, she was, after the Blessed Virgin, the most widely-revered saint of the Middle Ages, and she’s called, in Eastern Christianity, “Apostle to the Apostles.”
    If anyone can tell me a lie that the Catholic Church has kept hidden about Jesus or his teachings, please tell me.
