Tom Hanks stars in the new movie, Angels & Demons

Tom Hanks stars in the new movie, Angels & Demons

I became very curious when this video was announced. For some odd reason, www.Tangle.com had it featured on their home page. Of course it was taken off once an uproar started by all the members. Which I am particularly happy about.

Is this a threat? Should the Church take a stand? Of course.
Do I think it is more serious than the Divinci Code? No.
The Divinci Code tried to crumble  solid Christian foundations, and forced itself as pure truth when all it had were myths.
Angels and Demons, is based completely on assumptions. For instance, Science has a chance against Religion. That seams to be the whole theme, Science vs. Religion.

Another assumption, is that any religion is a power hungry, purely evil, 911 type religion. Through the whole thing the only Church you witness or hear about is the Catholic Church, which made it even harder to decide if the movie is a threat. I don’t even agree with the Catholic Church

All in all, dont watch it. Do something better with your time, than to go see a movie that might not possibly be completely anti-Church. They don’t deserve your support.

I was blown away by that last one. Is it not obvious what our god is in America?
