GUEST,MrMr BS: Da Code According to Ron & Tom (158* d) RE: BS: Da Code According to Ron & Tom 18 May 06

As PeterT correctly points out, religious writing isn't the same thing as folklore, but people in this thread do seem to be confusing the two.

The main controversy surrounding the book & film (besides the suggestion that Jesus & Mary were conjugally related & had a female child), is the folklore regarding Mary Magdalene founding a 'bloodline' in France, which has been protected by secret Christian societies.

Religious writing doesn't have anything to say about the 'French connection' because it has nothing to do with religious texts, and everything to do with local folklore about Christian belief.

Everyone here keeps talking about religious writing as if it were interchangeable with local folklore. It isn't, and it appears that is where this thread went astray.

Oh, wait--the thread also strayed in other directions too (condemnation of bad writing, fundamentalist backlash, etc), but that is another kettle of fish.

That part of the book/film is based upon local folklore of several regions (who claim said fame also) of Europe.
