The Catholic League is once again taking action over the movie adaptation of a Dan Brown book, this time Angels & Demons. The group issued a press release to news agencies to point out what it claims are inaccuracies and falsehoods in Brown's novel as well as the upcoming Ron Howard film. The Catholic League also waged a similar PR campaign against the first Brown movie, 2007's The Da Vinci Code.
"The tag team of Dan Brown and Ron Howard would have the public believe that Galileo was a member of a secret society, the Illuminati, and that the group seeks revenge against the Vatican today because of the Catholic Church’s anti-science history. All of which is nonsense," said Catholic League president Bill Donohue.
“Galileo died almost 150 years before the Illuminati were founded on May 1, 1776. Yet Brown’s book says the secret society was founded in the 1500s, and the movie says the same. Even though Brown’s own website admits that the group was founded in 1776, he explicitly says that 'It is a historical fact that the Illuminati vowed vengeance against the Vatican in the 1600s.' Howard, for his part, has said in an interview that the Illuminati 'were formed in the 1600s'
"So why do they lie? Because their goal is to paint the Catholic Church as the enemy of science, and what better poster boy to trot out than their favorite martyr, Galileo? The ultimate victim, Galileo’s alleged persecution is cited as proof of the Church’s war on reason."
The Catholic League promises to issue more examples of the film's errors on their website in the weeks leading up to the movie's release on May 15.- The Catholic League. Comment on this Scoop (0)
