Wednesday in advance of the film's official premiere at the Cannes Film
Festival next week. In Mumbai (formerly Bombay), India about 2,000 members of
the Catholic Secular Forum and their supporters marched through the streets,
many displaying placards reading, "Stop Hurting Our Faith," while others vowed
to stage a hunger strike "until death." In the predominantly Catholic
Philippines, it appeared that the government was about to ban the film after
Eduardo Ermita, executive secretary to President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo,
remarked that "we should do everything not to allow it to be shown." Even in
Muslim Jordan, the country's Council of Churches called for the film to be
banned as blasphemous.
