What’s £100k in pieces of silver?

The BBC reports the story of a Roman Catholic nun, who is protesting against the filming of the Da Vinci code at Lincoln Cathedral, on the grounds that the book is heretical…

Producers were barred from filming at Westminster Abbey because the book suggests the church is covering up the truth about Jesus' life.

The novel portrays Jesus marrying Mary Magdalene and fathering a child.

The Dean of Lincoln Cathedral, the Very Reverend Alec Knight, stepped in and allowed production there.

The film company offered a donation of £100,000.

A nice piece of juxtaposition by the BBC hack there, which reminds Think of England of surely the best question ever asked on a chat show:

Mrs Merton to ('The Lovely™') Debbie McGee: “So, what first attracted you to the millionaire Paul Daniels?”
