    Default The catholic church needs a hobby.

    "Last week, Bill Donahue, president of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights, accused Howard and "Angels & Demons" author Dan Brown of "smearing the Catholic Church with fabulously bogus tales" in a New York Daily News editorial."

    I don't dislike Catholics but don't they have anything better to do than find things that they can call the devil?

    Notice they don't accuse Dan Brown of being a shockingly bad author. We can't give his books away in work.

    By all means i'm not saying that all Catholics do this i just don't care for the ultra conservative ones who can't go 5 minutes without finding something that they can relate to the devil or an attack against the church.

    Stewart Lee did an awesome little piece about how appalling Dan Brown's writing is on his Comedy Vehicle show.

    I haven't bothered reading them but my dad described the books as 'alright' - aka a pile of wank.

    One thing I do hate is when religions bash things such as books. We dont bash the bible so dont bash fictional novels. Its not like the church saying that its blasphemy is going to stop people reading it, if anything more people will read it to find out what the church hates about it!
    So far; Lobes (normal again) Navel, Conch
    Retired: Lobes (3.2mm & 4 mm), Helix, Sternum (skin diver),Nostril and Rook.
    And coming up: Auricle, anti-eyebrow, smiley

    FIRST TATTOO DONE!
