Indian Catholics have an idea

Mumbai-based campaign group, the bizarrely-named Catholic Secular Forum, has come up with an excellent way to protest against the Da Vinci Code film: “fast unto death”.

Joseph Dias, the group’s general secretary explains:

It’s to show the extent that our feelings have been hurt … It’s a more Christian way of doing things rather than pulling down things and tearing them up

Stephen Green, John Beyer, all you boys on the Muslim Action Committee – are you listening?

The same group are also calling for a second film, Tickle My Funny Bone, to be banned because it “hurts religious sentiments”. It features a “naughty nun”.

Naughty nun? Surely the End of Times is upon us!

    Unfortunately, in the same country the Mumbai Catholic Council has threatened to stop the screening of the film if the government fails to ban it, and one Roman Catholic has offered a bounty of US$25,000 on the head of Dan Brown.
