The Catholic League are at it again. After protesting against The Da Vinci Code back in 2006, they are putting on their protesting robes yet again for Angels & Demons.
From The Guardian:
The League, which is led by controversial president William A Donohue, said it would be pointing out what it says are a number of falsehoods in the new film and the Dan Brown book on which it is based. It also claimed Angels and Demons, which arrives in cinemas on 15 May, had an anti-Catholic agenda.
The League’s determination to repeat its campaign against 2006’s The Da Vinci Code is slightly surprising because statements it made in the run-up to the film’s release were widely suspected to have helped, rather than hindered, the movie’s gargantuan $758m (£540m) global box office.
In the new film, Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon, played once again by Tom Hanks, discovers the existence of the Illuminati, a powerful secret organisation that has been pitting itself against the Roman Catholic church for centuries. Together with Italian scientist Vittoria Vetra (Ayelet Zurer) he follows a 400-year-old trail of ancient symbols to the heart of “the most secretive vault on Earth”.
