SPRING GROVE, Penn., June 8 /Christian Newswire/ -- To date, the American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property (TFP) and its America Needs Fatima campaign has sponsored 2,025 peaceful protests against The Da Vinci Code movie at theaters nationwide.
“As far as I know, the magnitude of this act of public reparation is unparalleled. The moral outrage is real and Catholics proved it by forming the largest grassroots protest against blasphemy in history,” said TFP president Raymond E. Drake. “We will not remain silent as Our Divine Savior is publicly ridiculed and reviled by The Da Vinci Code or any anti-Catholic display of disrespect that targets the sacred person of Our Lord.”
“The Da Vinci Code book and movie will soon be consigned in the gutter of history, and remembered as yet one more failed attempt by the gates of Hell to prevail against the Church,” Mr. Drake continued.
According to the TFP’s web site, approximately 1,100 protests were held at theaters on the film’s opening night, nearly one in every three theaters showing the movie.
“After a full month of theater protests, the American TFP will sponsor a national hour of Eucharistic adoration in reparation for The Da Vinci Code’s blasphemies. The event will be held from 5:00-6:00 P.M. (Eastern Time), on June 18, the feast of Corpus Christi,” said Mr. Drake. “The TFP hopes more than 1,000 protest organizers will sponsor an hour.”
The TFP is organizing final protests on June 24.
“To conclude our campaign against The Da Vinci Code, Catholics nationwide will join together in a huge, massive, and final act of reparation in front of Sony’s offices in New York City, and Culver City, California. Both rallies, one on each coast, will take place simultaneously,” said Mr. Drake.
“Sony is responsible for producing and distributing the blasphemous movie. I hope they come to their senses and stop pretending blasphemy is entertainment,” concluded Mr. Drake.
