Mass Media and Pop Religion





Pick up the April edition of MacLean's (or read it here) and read the following: "The author who inspired the Da Vinci Code wages a new war over Jesus: Did he really die on the cross?" The article highlights the Gnostics, a "staged" crucifixion, and Jesus being taken into a tomb where medicines could be used to revive him. An excerpt following this article reads: "Again, it takes only a slight shift of perspecitve, a standing aside from the theological dogma, to see the crucifixion in a new way. That is, to see how Jesus could very well have survived".

Staged crucifixions. Who would ever have thought we'd see the day.

Thanks for your insight with respect to the 'Gospel' of Judas. I was deeply disturbed when it made its way into the news recently.
