ABC News correspondent Elizabeth Vargas concedes her network is stepping into a theological minefield with its one-hour exploration of whether Jesus Christ had a wife.
The ABC News special, “Jesus, Mary and DaVinci,” is scheduled to air next week.
“You can’t talk about this subject without intriguing people or offending people,” Vargas said Thursday. “We’re trying to do it as respectfully as we can.”
ABC screened the special for some reporters and religious leaders on Thursday. The program is based on the best-selling novel, “The DaVinci Code,” which claims to be partly grounded on historical fact.
You would never guess that one of the Catholic theologian they interview is (surprise-surprise) Fr. Richard McBrien. For those either brave or stupid enough to inflict this drivel upon themselves I would suggest reading CRACKING THE ANTI-CATHOLIC CODE instead.
Why is it these networks never have a show like “The Real Mohammed” or “Buddah, Great Thinker or Fat Slob.”
