In Gandalf We Trust

On his press junkette for The Da Vinci Code, Sir Ian McKellen, in defense of his upcoming picture, has been making waves with some very unmitigated anti-Christian statements, with a dash of British comedic cynicism to boot!

In response to the Catholic Church's suggestion that a disclaimer be added to the front of The Da Vinci Code explaining that it is entirely a work of fiction, Sir Ian had this to say:

I've often thought the Bible should have a disclaimer at the front saying 'This is fiction.' I mean, walking on water? I mean, it takes an act of faith?"

He then followed it up with a tongue-in-cheek jab at the fear of gay marraige among popular culture:

I'm very happy to believe that Jesus was married. I know the Catholic Church has problems with gay people and I thought this would be proof that Jesus was not gay."
