More "Church v. Ron Howard"

Apparently, William Donohue, head of the Catholic League, has jumped aboard the "Let's protest Angels & Demons because it MUST be blasphemous" train. He has started a war of words with Ron Howard calling him "anti-Catholic" and "delusional" and asked all good Catholics to boycott the film.

A more complete account of the tete-a-tete HERE.

It's fiction, folks. A mystery story. The movie doesn't claim to be an exact, factual account of anything that went on/is going on/will go on within the Catholic church. And having spent all in all nearly a month on that set, I saw nothing that corroborates what Mr. Donohue's supposed "spy" says about "how much they (the crew) hate Catholicism."

Ahh, as I've said before, nothing like controversy to guarantee boffo box office.
