Oh my... I’ve been trying to explain this to people even when he was a family man on better behaviour who produced the Passion of the Christ. People don’t care-their only care is to neutralize his life-changing movie by dismissing it as right wing, homophobic “Catholic” propaganda.
Mel certainly has given them a lot of ammo in this regard. His has been such a pathetic fall, it’s hard to attribut it just to Hollywood. I think the devil so hated this movie (and the many souls it saved) that he set out to crush and humiliate poor Mel by temptation of his primary weaknesses: addiction, lust and pride.
Now the devil has him in his grip.
