Dan Brown, in his film The Da Vinci Code used the Gnostic Christian religions teachings that Jesus of Nazareth was married to Mary Magdalene.
A belief viewed as heresy by the universal Roman religion and the Reformed churches which emerged after the 17th century Reformation. Even more heretical than the famous Monty Python film The Life of Brian which portrayed the wrong baby being identified as the newborn Christ Messiah. A fictional account produced to entertain people.
Christians, from the universal Romans to the Free Presbyterians in Northern Ireland, united to denounce this blasphemous production in an outpouring of religious fundamentalism later dwarfed by the Muslim reaction to Salman Rushdie’s book The Satanic Verses.
The death threat pronounced upon Rushdie by Shia muslim Islamic fundamentalists in Iran shocked the world. But this shock would itself be surpassed in France when Journalists and staff at a satirical publication, Charlie Hebdo, in Paris were murdered by Islamic fundamentalists supposedly outraged by a depiction in the satirical publication, of their prophet Mohammed as a suicide bomber.
