I watched "Passion of the Christ".
One really has to know ones bible storys to get it, other ways it's just a very detailed movie about the torture of Jesus (of the Christ family).
Mel Gibson made a few antisemetic comments a few years ago. Then he had to apologize for them. The jews where upset and Mel hasn't worked since.
My explenation is one of these - either that there is a jewish conspiricy. Or, people finaly realized that Mel is pretty overrated.
And speaking of Christianity I want it noted that my favorite apostle is Judas. I've got two reasons:
- He's into kissing. He must also be very confortable with his own sexuality to go kissing on men. People who are secure in their sexuality are sexy in general.
- He's also the one who really made Jesus famous. Had Judas not betrayed Jesus who would've remembered either today? You could in fact say that Judas was the Simon Cowell of his time.
The movie also got me thinking about sins. Deadly kinds of sins.
Greed must be the worse of them all. It's also the most widly spread. Which is very notable in times of economic diffuculty.
I wish Judas could come back from the dead and make out with them.
