The leader of Christian group The Resistance, strongly opposed to Tom Hanks' forthcoming Angels & Demons, has no problem facing jailtime for planned protests of the film's opening this weekend.

As reported earlier, the Vatican gave its approval through its official newspaper. Click here to read their review

Mark Dice, avid protester and YouTube user, says he and his peers are "prepared to go to jail to educate and inform people about what we believe is a dangerous message being sent-out from Angels & Demons."

As opposed to a normal barricade with signage and chants, Dice has a rather inside approach to get his point across--Resistance members are planning to demonstrate inside screenings.

"“In our opinion the Illuminati which is depicted in the film is still very much alive and active in society," Dice says of the powerful secret organization in the movie, "we believe that it is responsible for major atrocities like the 9/11 attacks and the latest global financial meltdown because they want their own agenda in place."

"We intend to inform and educate people about this by carrying-out protests in several major cities throughout America," Dice tells us.

Angels, which was recently deemed "harmless" by Catholic officials, isn't Dice's most famous  target. He and The Resistance celebrated Paris Hilton's DUI fiasco at Los Angeles' Beverly Hilton Hotel, and targeted Starbucks with boycotts in the past.

Sony Pictures had no comment on the group's plans.
