With The Da Vinci Code movie about to open, the anti-Gnostic reaction is heating up. One Catholic screenwriter-blogger urges her readers to watch the vapid Over the Hedge instead. (It’s an “othercott,” not a boycott.)

This film is based on a book that wears its heresy and blasphemy as a badge of honor, and I intend to stay far away from it.

Gnostic Christianity is taking lot of heat. Some people do want a boycott. Yet more “rebuttal” sites here.

If you read this blog, you know I am Pagan, not Gnostic. Gnosticism has one root in Platonism, granted, but all that Sophia-and-the-Demiurge stuff is not me.

Nevertheless, I would like to point out that the modern Gnostics have a different take on the matter.

In fact, one Gnostic priest has written a “Da Vinci” prayerbook as well as a thoughtful response to the Da Vinci Code hoopla.

M. and I plan to see the film. We tend to avoid animated animals.
