What a lowlife creep.
On the contrary, Krauthammer is one of the clearest thinking, most articulate conservative voices in the media. I can almost always count on his insight on difficult issues. For him to deliver this stinging indictment of the movie is enough to make me stop and think. Since I haven't seen it yet, I will suspend my judgement until after I do. But to call someone like Krauthammer a lowlife creep merely tells me you've never read him before this article.

It is a good movie, a really good movie- his high faluten living has caused him to turn soft.

It's a spiritual clash. The movie is divisive. As the gospel is supposed to be.

Anyone (like Krauthammer) who opines that civilized societies should be disarmed, except for the police and military, is worse than a lowlife creep.

Krauthammer took a holiday from clear thinking with this rant.

Yeah, I'm thinking too. Though I abhor the sensless level of violence that Gibson has used as his main cenimatic tool in this movie I have defended him to my Jewish friends as NOT anti-semitic. My jewish wife and I have had a few heated discussions about it.
Now I don't know.
If a genius like Krauthammer is offended by this film I have to really pay attention to that.
We are not supposed to offend our brothers. Surely the Jews ARE our brothers.
There have been other very good movies made about Christ ... including well done scenes of the crucifiction. The Jews were not outraged. Why are they so hurt now? I think good christians need to ask themselves this question.

May I interrupt? I have read him plenty of times before, and always agreed with him - until now.
I do not know about him being a "lowlife creep" (whatever TF that means - I HATE adjectives that have no definition).
I DO KNOW, after reading this piece, that he is an anti-Christian bigot.

i agree, giotto. i think people have to accept that Christians view this movie through a different lens than Jews: this is not a sin . i always agree with Krauthammer and feel if he takes this movie so personally that we have to respect that there is this kind of reaction from thinking, serious people who are not anti-Christian. tolerance, folks.

What exactly is controversial about depicting the high priests (not all Jews, mind you) as bad guys? Black people and white people and Arabs and other groups are shown as bad guy characters in movies all the time. That's not an indictment of those races. We laugh at Arabs who shriek at depicting a terrorist as an Arab in a movie. We should similarly dismiss these ridiculous claims of anti-semitism. I guess if someone sees what the high priests did as righteous, you might have a problem with the passion. Take that up with God who gave the words to those who wrote down the text of the Gospels.
