Vatican calls for a boycott of the DVC movie:

ROME, April 28 - A Vatican official on Friday called for a boycott of the upcoming "The Da Vinci Code" film, saying it contained "slanderous" offenses against Christianity would provoke a worldwide revolt had they been directed against Islam or the Holocaust, an Italian news agency reported. Monsignor Angelo Amato - Pope Benedict XVI's former No. 2 when Benedict was head of the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith - made the comments in a speech at the Pontifical Holy Cross University, which is run by the conservative Catholic movement Opus Dei, the ANSA news agency reported.

"I hope all of you boycott this film," the agency quoted Amato as saying. He said the film, based on the best-selling novel by Dan Brown, was full of "offenses, slander, historical and theological errors concerning Jesus, the Gospel and the Church." "Slander, offenses and errors that if they were directed toward the Quran or the Shoah would have justifiably provoked a worldwide revolt," ANSA quoted him as saying. Yet because they were directed toward the Catholic Church, they remain 'unpunished,'" he said. Church officials have spoken out repeatedly against novel and the upcoming film adaptation, which stars Tom Hanks and Audrey Tautou and is scheduled for release May 19.
