Da Vinci Code Insanity
I've now heard this conversation three times in the last two weeks, almost word for word, in three separate restaurants:
Affluent Boomer woman #1: "I just finished the Da Vinci Code. Wow, what a fantastic book!"
Affluent Boomer woman #2: "Yes, isn't it!
#1: "It just amazes me that people could still believe in Christianity after reading this book. I mean, it like, totally pokes holes in the Church's teaching, left and right."
#2 (Sneering): "I know what you mean!" (Pause in the conversatin to take a bite of food):
#2: "Have you read "The Gnostic Gospels" by Pagels?"
#1: "Not yet, but I hear they are just wonderful!"
You can guess how the rest of the conversation went.
Update: This is the kind of response to the Da Vinci Code I wish more people would have. Brilliant.
