Respect for religion

What's it gonna be, CNN?
[I]f you are a Christian, then the Da Vinci Code is basically a blasphemy in that it categorically states that Christ had, not only a wife and children in direct contravention of Christian doctrine, but that the wife was Mary Magdalene, a prostitute. And the author claims that it's all true, that he's not making it up. In other words, it's a fairly blatant attack on the basic tenets of one of the world's major religions by a major movie studio and publishing house. I'm going to be reading the reviews for this movie very carefully. For example, will CNN, which refused to run the Mohammed cartoons out of "respect for religion" be as solicitous of offended Christians? How about the NY Times?
