|This is one of the fundamental human rights: that we should be respected, our religious beliefs respected, and our founder Jesus Christ respected," he said, without elaborating on what legal means he had in mind.|
I guess that means they should also respect the fundamental human right of atheists to have no religious beliefs, right? And while respecting their right to hold their beliefs, to reject that they have the one and only Truth, eh?
Nice touch, invoking the fact that other religious groups take a violent, intolerant stance against nonbelief in their own Truth. I guess Jesus didn't really mean "turn the other cheek" and "the meek shall inherit the earth".
I thought the DaVinci Code was a fun read, if not particularly strong literature, but I didn't at all buy into it as any form of fact. All this complaining from the Catholic church just keeps it selling. Are they getting some sort of kickback?
