'Passion' criticism exposes bigotry
The Messiah Truth Project Inc. is proving to be an off-the-wall fringe Jewish cult. Calling for an investigation of the movie Passion of the Christ is just plain nonsense. Pick any other movie that portrays the crucifixion of Christ and there may be a shred to their point.
Why have they ignored all the previous movies, only to now make their silly allegations? I say it is because this movie was produced with passion by a movie great, Mel Gibson. It is also because it has become fashionable to attack Christianity while claiming the attack to be sensitivity for other more fashionable religions.
If Gibsons movie is responsible for an increase in anti-Semitism, then we must hold Hollywood responsible for all the movies that depict police being murdered and portrayed as the bad guys. Burt Reynolds, youre next!
The music that promotes cop killing needs to be prosecuted; the evidence is already in. Movie portrayals of serial killers should be responsible for the copycats that follow.
The Messiah Truth Project is attacking Passion of the Christ out of their own bigotry. Look at the news and you see much more anti-Christian sentiment brought about by the movie than any other. A recent poll indicates that the number of anti-Semitic incidences are down as a result of Passion of the Christ. What is there for Attorney General John Ashcroft to investigate? Perhaps the lies of the anti-Christian bigotry of the Messiah Truth Project.
