As everyone knows, the Da Vinci Code is about to be premiered worldwide.
I will probably see it. By chance I ran into the plot synopsis in the site of Dan Brown (the author of the book).
For example, it describes Opus Dei as
Opus Dei [is a] clandestine, Vatican-sanctioned Catholic sect believed to have long plotted to seize the Priory's secret.
Whoa.... Opus Dei is a clandestine sect! I must say I dislike the guys (and I know at least 4 of them), but they are about as clandestine as the Baptists. And much less so than the Unitarians.
Not to mention that (I've heard) much of the plot revolves around clues left "hidden" in things like Da Vinci's paintings.
You know, if I were the Priory of Sion, and had a secret... sure, I would hide the keys to the secret in world-famous pieces everyone sees. Or maybe I would ... hide them? You know, as in not telling anyone about them. As if it was a secret?
What would you choose? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
On the other hand... the good guys are the ones (the Priory) that have the secret and the bad guys are another secretive organization (Opus Dei) that wants to get the secret?
Well... color me unimpressed, but what the hell does either one having the secret matter? If it is a secret, and noone should know about it, why not give it to the guys at Opus and let them keep it? They don't intend to announce it either.
Then the nice fellas at the Priory can go to the beach or something.
But who cares. They are all the same to kdaptists.
