    He didn't "deny" it. He took it and bought into Satan's lies -- and only after he discovered that Satan HAD lied did he ask God to be returned to the cross.

    He had a complete breakdown in faith in God and only recanted after proof.

    That's not the Biblical Jesus that Christianity teaches.

    The problem here is I am not attacking the core of his masculinity. To keep with your analogy I am attacking the clothes he is wearing (his specific actions or denominated beliefs). The other men (denominations of Christianity) don't wear the same clothes, though they are still all men (Christians).

    It's a commonly shared belief dictated by the man I am attacking. The belief being false also doesn't discount the overall beliefs.

    Finally someone that can truly dissect the meanings.

    In my view the movie says two things. 1 ) The Jesus was truly human during his time on earth and truly had to deal with all our flaws, 2) If you repent, no matter what has occurred in the past, God will forgive you.

    For Angels and Demons, the entire movie gave the impression that the Catholic Church is nothing more than a front for malevolent cabals and other sinister groups. Actually, both DVC and Angels and Demons gave that impression.

    And this whole concept that Christ married and had children with Mary was more than a little offensive, though I do understand he was not the first to come up with that concept.

    Why is it offensive?

    It's just a movie.....

    On a side note reading some of the arguments in this thread and others about evolution.....the worst part about the debate regarding Evolution Vs. Creation is that there are still people who are still trying to argue books which are now ridiculously dated(Darwin's). The amount of information supporting evolution since Darwin is now so vast that reading kids anything out of Darwin's books to support or argue against evolution is akin to trying to teach quantum physics with Babylonian math tablets.
