Othercott DaVinci(Filed under: Buzz)
When Christians are trying to decide whether they should be up in arms over the movie adaptation of The DaVinci Code with Tom Hanks or embracing this opportunity for cultural dialogue, one voice stands out in the wilderness: Barbara Nicolosi. The founder and director of Act One, a group that trains Christians to work in the film industry, and editor of Behind the Screen: Hollywood Insiders on Faith, Film and Culture, is suggesting that Christinas should "othercott" DaVinci (or read her original blog entry) and go see a different movie the weekend it comes out.
Her point is fairly simple: The movie (and book) are about basic heresy and anyone interested in these questions is more interested in bashing Christianity than signing up. Therefore dialogue is pointless. Outright boycotts and protests never work and just end up giving the object of Christians' wrath more publicity. The only thing Hollywood understands is ticket sales, so Nicolosi recommends we vote with tickets and vote for a different movie. She recommends the computer-animated Over the Hedge.
