You ever get dumped by a girl before the big dance? The best revenge isn't going out with the boys instead of going to the dance. The best revenge is taking a hotter girl to the dance. What does that have to do with the Da Vinci Code? Not much, but I thought it would be funny to introduce this blog with that image in your head...
I haven't read the Da Vinci Code, but I understand it wears blasphemy as a "badge of courage." What should Christians do about that? A Christian screenwriter in Hollywood has some thoughts:
- Don't ignore it - the box office is a ballot box. We need to vote with our dollars.
- Don't protest it - that never works and makes us look like petty free-speech haters.
- Don't see it and discuss it - no one is listening.
- Go to another movie on 5/19, the opening night of Da Vinci Code. This will get the attention of the media, of the people, and of the studios.
I think this is definitely the path of wisdom in this case. Let's go to the movies, just not to the Da Vinci Code. Don't miss the dance, just go with a hotter date. That's the best way to diss it.
