Skip to comments.Mel Gibson post-award press conference-"Kinship" with Michael Moore
Posted on 01/10/2005 10:33:48 AM PST by bushfamfan
Does anyone have the quotes that Mel Gibson apparently made after receiving his People's Choice Award in saying he felt a "kinship" with Michael Moore and attacking the war in Iraq?
If Jesus is not a god of love and understanding what was his goal on earth? What is Jesus' true message if it is not, "love thy neighbor"?
He is not a conservative. Did you hear what he said in his interview with Diane Sawyer? He is a conservative catholic...not a conservative.
Mel Gibson is as liberal as any in Hollywood.
Don't kid yourself.
I agree with you completely.
Mel has shown his true colors...which really were not so hidden to start with...
Mel has been bashing our troops for a long time. Get a revelation people.
He made alot of cash.
End of story.
He is a religious catholic....and he even said he doesn'tknow if he will go to heaven or not. He says his wife won't because she isn't catholic.
He is nutcase.
Jesus took the bullet for us. He expects us to do the same. "Greater love hath no man than this, that he lay down his life for his friends." Going to war to save 25 million people from tyranny and oppression is very, very Christian. Living in denial and fear is not.
"As He died to make men holy let us die to make men free..." Battle Hymn of the Republic, verse 2.
amen to that
"You realize that my comment was towards the Bushbot that started this insipid thread right?"
Yep - just showin' some solidarity!
Mel Gibson is COMPLETELY HOLLYWOOD
Utter nonsense. You'll find many conservative atheists and liberal Christians. Christian and conservative are not synonyms.
The aboslute nerve of him not presuming he will go to heaven. - sarcasm
I'm familiar with these.
I get slammed from Bush lovers because I am very critical of the President.
Considering your HANDLE, color me suspicious of that.
The point is he isn't reaching out, he is one who sees Michael Moore and his film as respectable, likeable film.
Now you're moderating your tone? You were questioning the validity of the movie the Passion that he made and his sincerity of being religious, that's something the Left does, its a cheap shot not to mention unprovable. I disagree that he is reaching out, and doing it well, on the DU post (where they are making fun of you by the way "turning" on him FYI) they where greatly praising Gibson. Guess its kind of like drawing more flies with honey then vineger. Hey whatever works, if we can get the radical Left to stop hating religion so much we will be able to relate to them in future disagreements easier.
What? The guy who took on the media in We Were Soldiers? Do you have anything approaching a link to back up this nonsense or are you just free associating?
I wouldn't throw around the word "nutcase" if I were you, its obviously too applicable to you since this statement is so totally without basis.
Slow down everybody! Since when did making a film expressing one's personal faith equal creating a position paper for political conservatism? And since when does making a religious film that appeals to a socially and politically conservative base require that the film's creator fall into line with the precepts of that particular group? Can't someone believe in Jesus and be against the Bush administration's geopolitical policies? As Bob Dylan once said, "just because you buy my records, doesn't mean I owe you anything." The Passion Of Christ was a movie, not a conservative screed.
And BTW, the fact that I happen to be a liberal doesn't mean that I don't value life. I do. None of us, conservative or liberal, should be required to buy into any particular set of doctrines. We've all got to become a little more flexible in our thinking, doncha think?
I find it mystifying that so many seem to believe that Gibson's very Christianity is suspect if he opposes the Bush administration on Iraq. Does the majority on this site really believe that opposition to the Iraq war is incompatible with Christianity?! The Pope disagrees with you on that score.
Your a Nutcase Troll!
Please remove this horrible post!!!
How dare you ! Spawn of Satan get out of here!
Typical liberal speak. I have my beliefs, why should I be flexible when I'm comfortable with them as they are?
Read The New Jerk Post 255!
Methinks you're lost, trying to peddle that bilge on this forum: this FR, not DUmmyland. Do you need a link?
