But It’s My Right! Ron Says So!

Mona Lisa, 3 eyesWe’ve got a new frontrunner for the Stupidest Thing I’ve Read This Year Award (previously held by “Spiritually, the guitar is the bedfellow of the kazoo”). Here’s The Da Vinci Code director Ron Howard (via Barbara Nicolosi):

To deny the right to see the film is a fascist act.

My wife April’s reply to this this weird statement: “Who’s trying to deny anyone the right to see The Da Vinci Code?”

My answer: “The guy at the ticket booth, if you don’t fork over your eight bucks. I guess he’s a fascist.”

Now I have a “right” to see The Da Vinci Code. You can toss it in the bucket with the other new rights that I’ve been hearing about lately, such as my right to pay less for car insurance, to have a full head of thick, luxurious hair and to earn a six figure income from my living room whilest wearing my pajamas.

Not to mention Ron Howard’s right to be a complete idiot.

BTW, Barbara Nicolosi, one of those smart-guy Catholics I was talking about the other day—and a real hoot in the bargain—is Da Vinci blogging at Church of the Masses. Also worth a visit:

  1. Lexington Green says:

    The guy cannot sell his movie on the merits, so he is trying to make paying to see it an anti-fascist lifestyle gesture. Good luck. The reviews have stunk so far. May it sink of its own weight into the black and icy fathomless sea.
