Sure It’s Fiction, but It’s Evil Fiction!

Moslem Does Not Convert

I was listening to a radio announcer tell the story of a young girl who started to date a Moslem young man. She convinced him to see a priest for instructions about entering the Catholic Church. He did wonderfully until someone gave him a copy of The DaVinci Code. Upon reading it, he said: "The Bible is a hoax and this story proves it." This ended his relationship and his faith in God.

From M.B. Cleveland, Ohio

—From the fine folks over at The Defense of Tradition, Family and Property (!), a Catholic group that truly understands the power of the apocryphal tale.

Looks like his faith in God was a little shaky to begin with.

"I believe in God!"
"Here's a fictional book that imples God's made up!"
"Damn! you're right! God doesn't exist!"

Next week, this guy will probably be believing in spacefaring turtles.

No one told the Catholics that Islam is based on Christianity? i.e. if he abandoned the Christian God, he abandoned Allah too....

Exactly, Andrew! Americans don’t know an awful lot about religion, despite our claims of being a very “religious” group. And we’re pretty quick to accept baseless rumor as fact—this ridiculous story about “the Moslem young man” is a good example of that.
