All these Catholics (I'm not one anymore, more of a non-denominational Christian) got all up in arms about Dogma being insulting towards Mary, because of the scene where Rock says that she had other kids after Jesus. However, if they would have picked up a Bible and read it, rather than listen to what the Church tells them, they would see there are several verses that show that Mary DID in fact have other kids after Jesus.
For example, Mark 6:3 - "Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the _brother_ of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his _sisters_ here with us? And they were offended at him."
Its even not like it was in one of the lesser read books of the Bible, it's right in the middle of one of the gospels. THings like this is why I am no longer Catholic. Too many contradictions between their doctrine and the Bible.
