The Roman Catholic church is complaining about the Da Vinci Code. Nevermind that it was released in 2003. They were 400 years late on getting Galileo right, so why am I surprised?

Anyway, the Vatican feels that the Da Vinci Code is "anti-catholic" by virtue of claiming that Jesus sired a bloodline with Mary Magdeline. Quoth Cardinal Bertone, "Anti-Catholicism is the last acceptable prejudice."

That's ...certainly myopic, isn't it, Bert? I mean ...Catholics getting pissed about predjudice? Are you pining for the 50's or something? Leave It To Beaver rerun week got your knickers in a knot?

Not so much on being on the catcher, are we?

Maybe you've heard of this group called "gays." They comprise perhaps 10% of the entire planet. Then you have women, they count for about half the world. Once you've had a few seconds to reflect on these two groups, prejudice and your historical involvement, Bert, I hope you understand why I don't have a heck of a lot of sympathy for you.

But wait, here is a nice quote from the Bible. You've heard of it, I trust. You claim to teach it, so perhaps the wisdom contained will find some fertile ground.

Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword. (Matthew 26:52)
