The Catholic Church's Slow Decent Into Hell

The Catholic Church doesn’t like the Da Vinci Code, so they are pursuing legal remedies to impose their will on everyone else. What is their legal justification for censorship?

This is one of the fundamental human rights: that we should be respected, our religious beliefs respected, and our founder Jesus Christ respected

If there is one thing that I know for certain it is that there is absolutely, positively no “fundamental human right” to be respected. You have no right, no priveledge to control what other people think, say, write or act.

The church has a long (very long) sordid history with controlling everything that everyone does, now that they no longer have that direct power I sincerely hope that we don’t give them the indirect power by way of the court system.

HatTip: Volokh Conspiracy
Update: Professor Bainbridge has similar thoughts.
