WWII, child molestation being kept hush-hush, the fact that while millions of Catholics in South America live on less then a dollar a day, the Pope eats like a king and lives in a multibillion dollar estate. All these things? Perfectly legitimate. The books by Dan Brown are child's play and silly attacks at best.
    so his fiction writing is not based enough in reality?

    Well at least it wasnt a lame racist reaction of some kind. I was halfway through the story before I realized it was not an attack on or about a percieved attack on dear leader.

    Its a band shirt. Let em wear whatever.

    Hmm.

    Personally, I wouldn't have pulled it.

    But I suppose the school wanted to avoid the potential for a media storm to occur...

    Well, everyone has the right to be offended. What right everyone doesn't have is for everyone else to care.

    I wonder if he did a shirt about chemistry's change if people would be offended, after all chemistry has played a large role in supporting evolution.

    This is bull****, I can't believe society had been lowered so much that you can't even put evolution on a tee-shirt.

    "I donít think evolution should be associated with our school."
    That's some more bull****. Its a public school, so you can't avoid having evolution in some educational form.

    Large sections of the movie were filmed on location, in Lee's Summit, Missouri. Did you actually watch it?
