The Israel-first evangelicals perhaps will have their eyes opened by the anti-christian viciousness displayed by some of the neoconservatives, now that the Passion has hit a nerve. The neoconservatives demand loyalty from the evangelicals, for Israel, but a lot of them in their heart repay that loyalty with contempt and hatred for the evangelicals' religion.

And what is the response of the Christian to be?

Your own intolerance is showing. You seem to be studying in the Buchanan-Sobran school of history and rhetoric.

How is it "anti-Christian" to criticize Gibson's reliance upon Anne Catherine Emmerich vs. the Gospels?

I think you (and many others here) protest too much. Is Abe Foxman correct in his views? No, but there is a strong inner logic nonetheless that needs to be understood. For 3,000 years Jewish existence has been threatened from every quarter, including big fans of "Passion Plays." The Jews would be nuts not to be a little fearful.

I saw the movie. I thought it was great. American Christians have a contextualized enough understanding of the New Testament to avoid falling into hatreds and revenges over this film (it makes me proud to be an American). But what happens when this film hits the screens of Europe, of Russia, of the muslim world? I'm a little worried by that. I pray that I'm totally wrong.
