Today's gem is more faux outrage over a movie. This time, the prequel to Dan Brown's "The DaVinci Code", "Angels and Demons".
The Vatican's official newspaper, Avvenire, ran a story Friday saying the Roman Catholic Church "cannot approve" of such a film.
And on Saturday, Turin daily La Stampa reported the Vatican will soon be calling for a boycott of the Ron Howard-directed film.
Ummm...note for the reality impaired: It's a movie based on a piece of fiction. What's the problem? Oh wait - let me guess - it offends your interpretation of your own favourite bit of fiction.
The Vatican has described the prequel as "an offence against God."
