Stop now. Tell me where it is.
Silas: You and your brethren possess what is not rightfully yours.
Jacques Saunière: I... I don't know what you are talking about.
Silas: Is it a secret you will die for?
Jacques Saunière: Please.
Silas: As you wish.
(at around 1h 12 mins) Teabing says that knowledge that Christ was human would bring down the Church by proving that "the greatest story ever told is a lie." However the Church has always held that Christ is simultaneously fully human and fully divine. Further, the Bible nowhere says that Christ was not married, it only doesn't say that he was. Although extremely unlikely after 2,000 years, if it were discovered that Christ had married and had children it wouldn't have any effect on the Faith.
SPOILER: In the closing credits, there are special thanks to "Marie de Paris" (Mary of Paris). This refers to Mary Magdalene and her resting place at Paris.
