Mark Finkelstein over at Newsbusters reports comments by Da Vinci Code actor Ian McKellen, speaking to Matt Lauer:

“Da Vinci Code Actor: Bible Should Have 'Fiction' Disclaimer”

Spake Gandalf “"Well, I've often thought the Bible should have a disclaimer in the front saying this is fiction. I mean, walking on water, it takes an act of faith."”

According to Finkelstein, McKellen’s comment is a “stunning bit of blasphemy” that is “likely to test the adage that all publicity is good publicity.”

LOL! This little side-circus gets better every day!

McKellen has a point… Even if you are devout, you must realize many serious Bible scholars don’t take many parts of the Bible seriously…

OK, maybe asking for a fiction disclaimer is a little provocative… But at least the Bible ought to carry a disclaimer it hasn’t been peer reviewed…

McKellen's comment was typical. My question is why is: does Hollywood only employ atheists, or does it simply make them?
