I recently finished reading the book "da Vince Code" that pushed the belief that Jesus married Mary Magdalene who bore him children. It’s certainly interesting reading as it it. But the book further associates the Magdalene with the pre-christian notion of a goddess.
Conservative members of the Catholic church considers the basic premises of the book as heresy. In fact, a Vatican official had been conducting forums even in Cebu criticising the points raised in the book.
I also chanced upon a book at the National Bookstore that sought to "break" the da vince code or prove its premises wrong. Ironically, this book costs more than double than the paperback I just read.
Moreover, I thought all the while that the book is a work of fiction. But it seems conservatives are treating it as something that should be suppressed.
