No Censorship Here, Tom

Tom Hanks, star of the DaVinci Code movie to be released on Friday, had some thoughts on the movie's detractors. One sentence stands out to me - "We always knew there would be a segment of society that would not want this movie to be shown."

I'd like to know who those people are, Tom. I don't think you could find more than two or three. No one is saying the movie shold not have been made - that would be censorship. What we are saying, Tom, is that we strongly disagree with many of the ideas falsely presented as "facts" in it. We want the chance to rebut it, not censor it. There's a huge difference between censorship and disagreement (not matter how strong). By the way, disagreement does not equal hate, either.
