Russian Orthodox Church against screening Da Vinci Code

MOSCOW, March 1 (RIA Novosti) - The Russian Orthodox Church shares the Vatican's opposition to screening a film based on Dan Brown's international bestseller "The Da Vinci Code" because of the novel's blasphemous content, a spokesman for the Moscow Patriarchy said Wednesday.

This is something not to be overlooked in today's fragile and troubled world." [More]
