Shoot of The Da Vinci Code - Should it be allowed???

Image Source : http://esoterisme-exp.com/

Dan Brown's famous novel Da Vinci Code has again landed in to controversy as the shooting of the novel is in progress.


Recently the filming of the Da Vinci Code was inaugurated starring Tom Hanks and Ian McKellen.


Ever since the film started , its in to controversy. the reason behind is that, there is an instance in the novel that says.. Jesus got married to a prostitute named Magdalene and had a child out of that relationship.


The churches here in England are divided in their opinion whether to allow the filming of this novel. West Minster Abbey in London (where the novel is set..) has dismissed the book as theologically unsound and has dismissed the application to conduct shooting at its premises.

Though Dan Brown asserts that ..the story is based purely based on fiction. Would any one allow betraying their god ..even in ficton !!!! because i believe that, every religion would assume their god to be the purest soul.

We are aware of the fact that, the Roman Catholics strongly disagreed this story and there was a huge agitation when the novel was released.


Any way, it would be safe for the director Richard Howard to take the film in a way so as not to offend Christian mythology. Otherwise, the film would expect another uproar on its release date.
Considering the title of this article.. its a topic left to debate...

    If you're going to talk about a film, atleast do enough research to know that the director's name is Ron Howard, NOT Richard Howard as mentioned in your blog.
