Maybe it's just me and my limited view from Rome, but does anyone else get the sense that there isn't really a vocal protest against the new Ron Howard movie Angels and Demons?
And yet, major news outlets and news shows have built up some sort of "controversy" with leading questions. It's almost as if the media, Howard, Hanks, and their movie studio (and the banks that look closely at Box Office receipts) have to keep talking about a "controversy" lest sells go down. Scandal sells, intrigue sells, controversy sells. And yet, I don't see much of an outcry against the film as there was for The Da Vinci Code.
Fr. Bob Barron offers a critique of the movie's posturing of the typically modern argument that the Church is somehow anti-science. But, the movie doesn't touch upon Christological truths like The Da Vinci Code did and so really, some big protest or controversy isn't going to happen, it seems, much to the disappointment of Howard and his bank rollers.
