The bestselling novel The Da Vinci Code is “a bunch of hot air” and nothing to get worked up about, said Archbishop Thomas Collins of Edmonton last week.
Although some bishops are urging Catholics not to read the book, Archbishop Collins told the Edmonton Journal that he would not follow suit. He said he doesn’t think condemning the book is very helpful.
He compared it to “an anti-Catholic Raiders of the Lost Ark.”
He admitted that the book’s plot is very gripping but it is loaded with inaccurate information.
