Vive le difference!

There has been a lot of buzz, in recent weeks, about the release of the movie "The DaVinci Code" based on the book of the same name. While I have not yet had the opportunity to read the book (I would need at least 3 more hours in each day in order to add more reading to my plate), I have read enough about the book to have a pretty good idea what it is about, but I digress...

What struck me the most about the discussions was the reaction to the book/movie. Remember that the basis of the book and the movie is that the deity of Christ was "made up" some 300 years after his death. You have Christians
writing lengthy scholary papers disputing the allegations in the book, you have Christians suggesting protests or boycotts of the movie, you have Christians talking about lawsuits. Contrast that reaction with the reaction of the Muslim world where they had rioting, looting, burning and murder all because of a series of cartoons that "insulted" Mohammed....

A world of difference, don't you think?
