Singapore's board of film censors has barred moviegoers 16 years and younger
from buying tickets to see The Da Vinci because, the board said, some
children might view it as fact. "Only a mature audience will be able to discern
and differentiate between fact and fiction," the censor board ruled. Meanwhile,
a senior official of the Catholic church in the Philippines has urged the
government to do all in its power to ban the movie. Eduardo Ermita said that it
would "confuse" Catholics. "We being a Catholic country, I think we should do
everything not to allow it to be shown," he said. "At the least as a Catholic,
it is blasphemous."
