Mel Gibson Refunds ‘Passion’ Previewers
NewsMax ^ | March 8, 05 | Carl Limbacher

Actor/director Mel Gibson's latest demonstration of generosity and fair play is another lesson Hollywood – and much of America – ought to learn.

His production company, Icon, is sending out checks to scores of church groups that were charged an extra fee to preview his blockbuster film "The Passion of the Christ" before it hit theaters last year. According to The Wall Street Journal, Icon "screened the film for many church groups in a bid to build word-of-mouth buzz."

But Icon says Regal Entertainment Group, the movie theater company that provided the screenings, charged a $500 "worship fee" to hundreds of the church groups.

Regal says the fee was usual and customary, that it was charged as a way to recoup overhead expenses involved in providing the screenings.

Still, Icon says, the company "was shocked and disappointed that this additional fee (which was never reported to us) was being charged to faith-based organizations," according to a letter sent to hundreds of church groups and reviewed by the Journal.

Icon filed suit against Regal, the nation's No. 1 movie theater chain, last June, alleging the company did not pay the appropriate amount of box office revenue. Gibson's movie, the third-largest-grossing film in the U.S. in 2004, raked in more than $600 million worldwide.

Regal has settled with Icon for an undisclosed amount, though the theater company "said last week the settlement would result in an $8.3 million reduction in previously reported fourth-quarter net income," the Journal reported, adding it more than likely "paid considerably more than that."

Gibson's Icon says it discovered the pre-screening charge during the lawsuit proceedings. In that suit, Icon "said it had suffered damages in excess of $40 million," the Journal reported.

"The Passion" is set to return to the big screen over Easter in a shorter, less violent form, say Icon officials. Gibson, a devout Catholic, wanted the film's re-release to coincide with the Bible's account of Jesus' resurrection following his crucifixion.

I never heard of a "worship fee."

Has anybody who's rented theaters for church groups heard of this?

I doubt it is something special to church groups.

Cinemas do rent their theaters for special events, like company presentations, and the like. The cinema is probably considering these special showings as a standard rental.

HERESAY!

Even though you have forgotten it, you lived with Heavenly Father as a spirit before you were born. But He remembers. He knows who you are. He knows your name. He knows your hopes, your successes and failures, your challenges, sorrows, and joys.

"worship fee"

Churches have all kinds of creative, cutesy ways of saying "donation." "Love offering" is one. Kind of reminiscent of David Stockman's "revenue enhancement" for taxes.

That said, "worship fee" sounds particularly obnoxious.

Objection sustained is where one client gets screwed. Objection overruled is where the other one does.

Any time you hear them shout "Objection!" you know at least three lawyers are making a buck, and a client is getting fleeced.

I love Hutz...his secretary slays me:

Hutz: Any calls Della?
Della: Calls? Oh calls. The Supreme Court called again.
Hutz: Tell them to sit tight. I'll get back to them.

Della: The Supreme Court called again. They need your help on some freedom thing.

Hutz: Now don't you worry, Mrs. Simpson, I - uh-oh. We've drawn Judge Snyder.
Marge: Is that bad?
Hutz: Well, he's kind of had it in for me, since I accidently ran over his dog. Actually, replace `accidently' with `repeatedly', and replace `dog' with `son'.

Marge: So, Mr. Hutz, does my husband have a case?
Hutz: I'm sorry, Mrs. Simpson, but you can't copyright a drink.
Homer: [whines] Oh!
Hutz: This all goes back to the Frank Wallbanger case of '78. How about that! I looked something up! These books behind me don't just make the office look good, they're filled with useful legal tidbits just like that!

Dr. Hibbert: Now, regardless of what this thing is, it's a priceless scientific find. So our most pressing concern now is to determine who owns such a valuabe skeleton,and I'd like to suggest that I do.
Mel: I'd like to hear from Lionel Hutz!
Hutz: It's a thorny legal issue all right. I'll need to
refer to the case of Finders v. Keepers.

Hutz: Now Mr. Nahasapeemapetilon, if that is your real name.
Have you ever forgotten anything?
Apu: No. In fact I can recite pi to 40,000 places.
And the last digit is 1.
Homer: Mmm... pie.
Hutz: Well if you never forget anything. Tell me this. What color tie am I wearing? [turns around]
Apu: You are wearing a red and white club tie in a half-windsor knot.
Hutz: Oh, I am, am I? Is that what you think? Well if that's what you think, I have something to tell you [ugh]. Something which may shock and discredit you [ugh]. And that thing is as follows [as he finally undoes the whole tie]. I'm not wearing a tie at all. [jury gasps]
Apu: If I am wrong about that. Maybe I am wrong about Mrs. Simpson.
Hutz: No further questions. [Hutz raises his arm and the tie is sticking out of his sleeve]

Marge: Homer! Are you all right?
Homer: [meekly] No.
Hutz: Mr. Simpson, don't you worry. I watched Matlock in a bar last night. The sound wasn't on, but I think I got the gist of it.

I'll have you know the contents of that dumpster are private! You stick your nose in, you'll be violating attorney-dumpster confidentiality!

Hutz: All right gentleman. I will take your case. But I will require a thousand dollar retainer.
Bart: A thousand dollars. But your ad says "no money down".
Hutz: Oh, they got this all screwed up. [corrects ad with felt-marker]
Bart: So you don't work on a contingency basis?
Hutz: No, money down. Oops, I shouldn't have the Bar Association logo here either. [Hutz eats ad]

Hutz: Now Mr. Lampwick. When Rogers Meyers stole your character...
Attorney: Objection.
Judge: Sustained.
Hutz: Ugh. If I hear "objection" and "sustained" one more time today I think I am going to scream.
Attorney: Objection.
Judge: Sustained.
Hutz: Argh!

"you lived with Heavenly Father as a spirit before you were born."

No, the Bible says we did not live with God before we existed. Before we existed, we did not exist. The Bible denies that we live as immaterial beings prior to being a physical being. Counterfeit religions Mormons teach that error, but not Christianity, nor Judaism.

 Genesis 5
 
 1.  This is the written account of Adam's line.   When God created man, he made him in the likeness of God.
 2.  He created them male and female and blessed them. And when they were created, he called them "man. "
 3.  When Adam had lived 130 years, he had a son in his own likeness, in his own image; and he named him Seth.
 4.  After Seth was born, Adam lived 800 years and had other sons and daughters.
 5.  Altogether, Adam lived 930 years, and then he died. 
 
If there HAD been some kind of 'pre-existance', then ol' Adam messed it up in verse three!

Depends on what you mean by Scripture!


They have WRITNGS and SAYINGS that are NOT found in the BoM.


Not ONLY do you have to believe that the Bible we have today was 'editted' (ahem) by church leadership thru the ages, but the 'completed work' needed a bit more stuff added by Joseph Smith and others!

There are OTHER 'beliefs' that only the TRUE seekers find out: in their Temple Ceremonies.

The Restoration

The Apostle Peter prophesied of the “restitution of all things” before Christ’s Second Coming (). Having been lost because of the Apostasy, Christ’s Church and the fullness of His gospel needed to be restored to the earth. This Restoration would make available the opportunity for all to receive once again all of the blessings of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Joseph Smith’s First Vision marked the beginning of the Restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ to the earth. In subsequent years, Christ restored His priesthood and reorganized His Church. He has continued to reveal truths to His prophets and to restore the blessings that were taken from the earth for a time.


What would you like to do next?

This one has me curious. Weren't there reports around at the time Passion was in the theaters of ticket booth pions issuing tickets for other movies, under the guise of their being "out of tickets" for the screens where The Passion was being shown?

I sort of remember reading those reports, and it being suggested that some anti-religious theater owners/employees were trying to suppress the numbers....

"I'm sorry folks, but this is a political forum. Not a forum to spout off your religious bigotry.

Your reasoning is precisely why we are politically in such a mess. If a cult which is damaging to its people is considered okay because they are "good conservatives," how can that be good for the populace as a whole? Truth, right and wrong, should matter.

If any other group was counterfeiting, calling itself, say, "The Pentagon" when it wasn't the Pentagon, wouldn't it be wrong not to rise up and speak truth and to not allow it to do so? Multiple millions call themselves Christians, yet are actually a counterfeit cult as Mormonism, and if the rest of people say nothing, because they want those Republican votes, they are as guilty of allowing the falsity without protest, as those within the cult.

Is being a "good conservative" someone who takes historical terms and meanings, redefines them in opposite ways, applies them to themselves, and then claims to be something it is not?

Are they "pro family?" How pro are they caring for their families while they teach their children these false teachings? These men plan to be Gods on their own planet one day, with their multiple wives. The ability to slap the real God in the face so brazenly shows the depth of evil character.

How loving are the Mothers who allow their children to be raised this way? They should study for themselves and find the contradictions between Scripture and the cult. How positive is a group whose core is based on deceit? Is this helpful to our future society or world or neighbors? Are they in promoting truth and character, when they are entrenched in a cult which is deceptive to its core? All Christian denominiations agree Mormons are NOT a Christian denomination.

Why promote dishonesty, just to get a Republican vote? I would not call them "good conervatives.' That is an insult to all truly good conservatives.

And yes, this is a political forum, but such a major group affects our politics. The reason America has been great is because of the truth of Judeo-Christian influence, not LDS, not Islamic, not Buddhist. Our religion affects our politics. A worldview which is false does not provide the wisdom necessary for society.

Jesus said His kingdom is not of this world. That does not mean we should just allow evil to rule. We just are to realize there are Two Kingdoms, and to want to be in the right one, His, through the grace offered in the real Jesus Christ's death for us. His resurrection proves He is God, and Mormonism is false. All Jesus taught is contrary to Mormonism.
