Passion of the Christ - March 15th 2010, 06:28 AM

I just saw Passion of the Christ, and I thought it was the most amazing film ever made. Unfortunately a good deal of people have insulted the movie for being anti-semitic, do you think it is, or are they just looking for something wrong?

Seriously? anti-semitic? It's based on historical records and many years of research. They probably only say that because Mel Gibson is known to be open about his views on Jews. But I do agree with you that it’s one of the best movies ever made.

Yeah the Anti-Defamation League bashed the movie because it portrayed the Jews as the murderers of Jesus... idiots. They just can't accept that even if they don't like it, that doesn't make it fake.

I honestly didn't really see the anti-Semitic tones that people say are present. There were definitely some creative liberties taken, but it is still relatively true to scripture.

Oh yeah I think I remember the Catholic church throwing up a big fuss when it was released. Meh, those guys are never happy... I thought the movie was fine.

No if I remember we actually liked it, the movie angered the Jewish community.

Huh, really? I just definitely remember my religion teacher telling us how the Catholic church was against it. My bad I guess.

But as for the whole anti-semitic thing, I do agree that people are just finding problems where there are none.

Mel Gibson has a hatred for jews.

Mel Gibson doesn't like Jews and may or may not have expressed some of it in the movie. Personally, I didn't like the movie. It was boring. I know that for some, it's powerful and meaningful but I guess it's the fact that I don't believe Jesus was a Messiah. To me it was a good story but a little too violent. If I were Christian, it might make it mean some thing to me, but I'm not so it was just a lot of senseless violence .
