John Zmirak on why not to take "The DVC" so seriously

My Lunch with an Old Friend of Dan Brown Proves Revealing About The DaVinci Code

If you know someone gullible enough to take a pulp airport novel as “evidence” that Jesus Christ was not divine—but rather a horn-dog rabbi eager to “hook-up” with a former hooker, in order to father a race of bumbling French kings…do you really think the answer is to argue with him? Using, you know, reason? You might just as well pick up the book, smack him on the nose and say “No! Bad! No! Very bad!” That’s likely to be more effective, and a heck of a lot more fun.

As P. J. O'Rourke once said, it's hard to accuse some people of thoughtcrime, as that would presuppose thought in the first place.
