In Which Dan Brown Tries To Snatch The Spotlight Away From Harry Potter

Yesterday's Sunday Herald says:

"Author Dan Brown is set to reignite controversy over his besteller The Da Vinci Code today, by defending claims he makes in the book that Jesus Christ married and had a child.

"In a rare television interview to be broadcast tonight on the National Geographic Channel, Brown reaffirms his 'belief' in the book’s key theory – that Jesus was married to Mary Magdalene and their French-born child started a blood line stretching to the present day. Critics have denounced the new claims as 'bonkers'.

"...Brown contends that Jesus must have wed because 'in that time in history, for a young Jewish man to not be married …it was practically a sin.' "

With proof like that, how can we all not be convinced?
