Maria Bolden, 42, a customer service representative for a cable company, said after seeing the movie, “If marriage is such a sacred sacrament, why is it such a problem for Jesus to have married?”
“The Catholic Church has hidden a lot of things — proof about the actual life of Jesus, about who wrote the Bible,” said Ricardo Henriquez, 25, the associate director of a senior center in the Bronx, as he waited for the Da Vinci screening to begin. “All these people — the famous Luke, Mark and John — how did they know so much about Jesus’ life? If there was a Bible, who created it and how many times has it been changed?”
Mr. Henriquez, by the way, is a Catholic who was baptized and confirmed in the church, went to Sunday school for six years, and still attends Mass twice a month.
(I kid you not.)
