LANCASTER – “The Da Vinci Code” opened in Lancaster to pickets carrying signs reading “I Love Our Lord Jesus Christ – I Reject `The Da Vinci Code.”‘ Led by members of Queen of Angels Church in Newhall, Friday night’s protest on the sidewalk outside the Cinemark 22 theater drew some 100 people, who prayed as they walked along behind altar boys carrying a crucifix and candles. “It’s very blasphemous against our Lord Jesus. Also it’s untrue,” said Queen of Angels parishioner Karen Weilbacher of Leona Valley. Marchers objected to the story’s plot in which members of the Catholic Church commit murder to maintain a 2,000-year-old cover-up – that Jesus Christ married Mary Magdalene and that their descendants are alive today.
