修道女がダ・ヴィンチ映画の抗議を行う

Nun stages Da Vinci film protest
【以下、転載】
A Roman Catholic nun told today why she had staged a 12-hour protest against the filming of controversial best seller The Da Vinci Code at Lincoln Cathedral.

Sister Mary Michael, 61, knelt in prayer outside the building where scenes for the blockbuster starring Tom Hanks are being shot.

She believes the book by author Dan Brown contains heresy.

Asked if she thought the people making the film would care about her protest, she said: “I don’t suppose they do, but that doesn’t matter tuppence to me. It matters to me what God thinks, not what the film crew think.

“When I face Almighty God, at my final judgment, as we all will, I can say, I did try my best, I did try my best to protest.”

Sister Mary, a former Discalced Carmelite who now belongs to Our Lady's Community of Peace and Mercy in Lincoln, said a storyline that Jesus married Mary Magdalene and that she bore him a child was based on a gnostic heresy that she first became aware of 50 years ago.

“It is an old error, derived from the mystery faiths of the east. It is not a new story,” she said.

Sister Mary said she had not read the book, but had read enough about it to understand its central errors.

Lincoln is being used for filming even though its own dean has reportedly branded the book “a load of old tosh”.

The Very Rev Alec Knight and the cathedral chapter are said to have agreed to let filming take place after the film’s producers made a donation.

Sister Mary accused the Cathedral of the sin of simony ; conducting financial transactions involving spiritual goods.

“The Church should not be accepting money for something that is not a true story,” she said.

“They should be praying more, and then the money would come in.

“To a believer, any believer, what is happening is blasphemous.”

Sister Mary said she began her protest at 5am.

“It was cold and dark. I was outside the Cathedral, facing towards the altar, and the ground was very hard.

“I prepared myself by going on a three-day St Patrick’s Purgatory pilgrimage in Ireland earlier this month.”

The Lough Derg pilgrimage in Donegal involves privation, lack of sleep and exercise.

“It helped me make my protest, which consisted of praying for an hour or an hour and a half, then walking around the Cathedral, then praying for another hour, until five in the afternoon.

“I won’t be going back to do it again – I think I have made my protest.”
ローマカトリックの修道女がリンカーン大聖堂で行われるダ・ヴィンチ・コードの映画撮影への12時間抗議をおこなっているそうです。

彼女は、ダ・ヴィンチ・コードは読んでいないそうですが、粗筋を知っていて、そこに古代の異端(異説)に基づいていると言っているそうです。実際に撮影している大聖堂の外で、12時間にわたる抗議を実行中。

まあ、但し、彼女は自分の抗議がどういう影響が及ぼせるかではなく、自分ができることをただ実施しているとのことです。まあ、人それぞれ考え方が違うし、他の人に迷惑をかけなければ、何をしてもいいと思うんですけど、いちいちニュースにしなくてもね。

この記事にどんなニュースバリューがあるのやら??? まあ、一応、紹介しておきます。
