Now...I am a christian and i have been all my life and I read the book and found it a fascinating read. Of course any thinking person knows that its fiction and i didn't find it in anyway a slight against god or jesus. I found it an interesting, thought provoking, "what-if" kind of read.
I will certainly go and see the movie. Because it was good. Having read the book I certainly haven't "stopped" being a christian and I think that this is a silly issue to get undies bunched about. MHO

Hear! Hear! I certainly hope I am mature enough to enjoy a good work of fiction and know that it is fiction. Why. I even read the funny papers and don't feel that taints my view of reality. C'mon. It was a good book. I look forward to seeing the movie.

Hope you guys have on your steel undies. ;-)
For what it's worth, I completely agree with you guys.

I plan on seeing it.
Imagine, I read the book and I still go to church on Sundays,..A Catholic church.
