Ensuring a Hit 

It's somewhat amusing to watch the Catholic Church hierarchy again fail to learn from history. Every new pronouncement and bitchfest from some old queen in a red dress just ensures bigger box office for The DaVinci Code.

The latest?:
...a leading cardinal says Christians should respond to the book and film with legal action because both offend Christ and the Church he founded.

Cardinal Francis Arinze, a Nigerian who was considered a candidate for pope last year, made his strong comments in a documentary called "The Da Vinci Code-A Masterful Deception."
Well, two comments to that one. A) I guess all those pissed off parents are just taking Arinze's advice when they sue Church's for all that priestly child-diddling, which has certainly gotta offend Christ.

And B) Christianity is all just a gigantic load of horseshit, the Pope is a Nazi, and it's still just fucking bread and wine, you idiots.

Now sue me.

What Arinze and the other Vatican whiners don't get is this is exactly how they made sure that The Life of Brian and The Last Temptation of Christ would make money.

Maybe Arinze would like to trade in his biretta for an asshat.

Sidenote: someone at Reuters must have forgotten their stylebook. The reference in the article should be "Francis Cardinal Arinze", and not the way it's written above. I have no idea why that's the tradition of Cardinal reference, but it is.
