This article makes me want to drive to San Jose and kick this guy’s butt with a metal shoe. Bishop Patrick McGrath is reported as having said:

While the primary source material of the film is attributed to the four gospels, these sacred books are not historical accounts of the historical events that they narrate. They are theological reflections upon the events that form the core of Christian faith and belief.

Uh, excuse me!! Let’s see what Vatican II said in Dei Verbum:

19. Holy Mother Church has firmly and with absolute constancy held, and continues to hold, that the four Gospels just named, whose historical character the Church unhesitatingly asserts, faithfully hand on what Jesus Christ, while living among men, really did and taught for their eternal salvation until the day He was taken up into heaven (see Acts 1:1).

So, what’s this again about Catholics not believing the Gospels to be historically true.
