The Catholic Archbishop of Adelaide, Australia has parted ways with several other Catholic clerics and has refused to support a boycott of The Da Vinci Code. In an interview with the Australian Broadcasting Corp., Archbishop Philip Wilson said today (Tuesday), "I think people should go and see the movie. I'm sure that many people have read the novel. ... If they take it at that level, remembering it is a novel, it is a story." At the same time, he remarked, "The church has a responsibility to help people to see the truth or not of what's being proposed" in the movie. Meanwhile, opposition to the film continues to mount. In Mumbai (Bombay), India, a man has put up a cash reward for the murder of Dan Brown, author of the book on which the movie is based. But John Dayal, general secretary of the All India Christian Council said that his group opposes "any curbs on freedom of speech and of faith" and especially opposes "lunatic statements calling for the blood of authors."
