Cartoons and Movies

It probably was entirely coincidental that as the cartoon outrage in the Middle East continues, and as Westerners creepily lecture Muslims to not get all indignant about the blasphemous drawing of its Prophet, I today read in the NYT where America's Christian Right is getting creepily indignant about the soon to be released movie version of the wildly popular novel, The Da Vinci Code, by Dan Brown, wherein the Christian Right's Prophet is blasphemously said to have been married to Mary Magdalene. The movie company has set up a webpage for agrieved fundamentalists, affectively giving opponents of the Da Vinci book and movie a "bullhorn" to trumpet their objections.

One of the representative "evangelists" to post on the site will be Gordon Robertson, the son of Marion "Pat" Robertson.

The apocalypse is upon us.
