Posted on 05/15/2014 3:57:44 PM PDT by NYer
“The Passion of the Christ actor Jim Caviezel has a message about Gods mercy and grace — especially for women who have had abortions. Prepare to be changed.
Caviezel, famed for his role as Christ in The Passion of the Christ, and currently starring as the leading man in TVs Person of Interest, is no stranger to being, well, different in Hollywood. From his publicly Catholic faith to his committed pro-life views, he stands in stark contrast to the typical movie star.
Caviezels personal life is even more remarkable than his incredible on-screen talent. Taking the road less traveled, Jim and his wife Kerri have adopted two children from China, both of whom had special needs.
Their first adopted child, Bo, came to the Caviezels after a traumatic first five years of life. The little boy had a brain tumor and had been abandoned before he was taken in by an orphanage and subsequently adopted by his loving parents. Bo is a remarkably boisterous child, and with the love he has received from Jim and Kerri, it is hard to believe that just a few short years ago he was struggling to survive in a hostile environment.
When asked how becoming a father had affected him, Caviezel told Catholic Digest, Even though theyre adopted, its as strong as any instinct. Thats what blew me away. I always thought if I adopted that I wouldnt have the same feeling [as I would] if they were genetically my own children. Nothing could be further from the truth.
The actor told Catholic Digest in 2009 that being pro-life is more important to him than his career. He told the digest, How are we so arrogant to think the 51.5 million babies who have died in this country
Look, I am for helping women. I just dont see abortion as helping women. And I dont love my career that much to say, Im going to remain silent on this.

Wow! On both the adoption opinion and his remark about pro life being so important.
This could get him fired from his show.
The headline of this article doesn’t make sense, and it doesn’t seem to reflect the actual article. Which woman did he say what to anyway?
Yes, Caviezel walks the walk!
“Which woman did he say what to anyway?”
Not only that I’m guessing women who get abortions are sociopaths. If they cry it’s for effect.
Jim will probably be “bumped off” in the next episode. He is one tremendous man. Bob
“..He is one tremendous man “
He certainly is.
Caviezel is the real deal and has no problems telling the world about his Christian faith! It has hurt him in Hollywierd but I have heard him say he could care less. Making Passion of the Christ almost killed him, and I mean really kill him. He had a heartattack making the movie and was also struck by lightning a couple of times. Doctors told him that continuing with the movie might kill him, and he told his wife he was really to go home to be with the Lord if that’s what God wanted, and of course he finished the movie.
God bless Jim Caviezel.
His show is in the top five, I believe. They knew his views before they hired him.
The producers might not care about his beliefs, but when the network is forced to cancel the show, what are they going to do?
Not exactly top 5, but it does very good. It was a great POI season, have to catch up on a few episodes. http://tvbythenumbers.zap2it.com/2014/05/13/tv-ratings-broadcast-top-25-the-big-bang-theory-tops-week-33-with-adults-18-49-ncis-with-total-viewers/263177/
Jim Caviezel ping... FREQUENCY!
They'll have to wait 'till next season to do that. The series will be back for its fourth season in the fall. Love the show.
No way. Les Moonves is the best out there. He has the best shows on TV at least the dramas. Jim is not going anywhere. Besides his beliefs have been known for a long time. He would not have “sex” with Ashley Judd in High Crimes because he was married. He was very vocal about his beliefs in The last Temptation of Christ which was WAY before Point of Interest. He is safe......don’t stay up worrying about him. HE WILL NOT BE FIRED!!!!!
My daughter and I saw Jim Caviezel here in Charlotte some years back ... when I was expecting James, maybe? He's a real cutie. His wife also spoke.
She also got pregnant at the age of 15 or 16...back in the late 60's. I don't know all the details...and never was told everything. But I know my dad and my sister flew south across the border..and my sister had an abortion.
My sister wasn't a sociopath. She was just a kid...really.
You can say want you want to say....so be it.
I don’t know about sociopaths but it is wrong and it is murder of a human life. I hope she regretted it enough to repent and seek salvation.
My sister probably never knew I knew of it....
I don't think she had a choice in the matter frankly.
I'm sure she had many regrets. As I'm quite sure you and me do also..............
“You can say want you want to say....so be it.”
I was thinking about the people who have had not one, not two but several abortions. Then there’s the woman recently in the news who filmed hers so she could tell people what a positive experience it is.
There was a time before abortions when you could adopt children and it didn’t cost $30,000. Why does it cost $30,000 to adopt but $695 to abort?
I am sorry for the pain your sister and family must have suffered.
Thank you for the link, it was far more inspirational to me than any other information I’ve been able to accept on this forum.......
When I became active in the national right to life movement, I met and consulted with the leaders at the time-- John Wilke, Wanda Franz, Olivia Gans, Carol Everett, Vince Rue and others. They all were serious and committed Christians.
One thing we all agreed upon immediately was that no one should ever presume to sit in judgment on a woman for having an abortion or even thinking about having one.
When I read the hatefulness of the self-righteous around here I wonder when they might decide to try a little Christianity themselves.
"I always thought if I adopted that I wouldnt have the same feeling [as I would] if they were genetically my own children. Nothing could be further from the truth."
A lot of people think like that. I don't understand that line of thinking but perhaps it's because they didn't adopt...
My mom and dad...and my sister surely went thru hell though.>p> I was shielded from all of that, really. Although my mom chose to tell me about a few years later...
Looking back I could see she needed to tell someone...and that was me. I think it tore my mom and dad up....Funny how people cope with things.
My sister and I never spoke of it...ever.
He was great in count of monte christo remake as well. great actor.
I love him in Passion and Person of interest boy that cliffhanger on Tuesday was awsome
They not going fire Jim he is main dude on the show he being follow by the govt on the show least Finch and Reese took bear the dog
My sister died in 2000....and I think of her fairly often. This thread and comments made me think of her....
I'm always torn...by folks that don't see people like themselves.
The first couple seasons of POS it was consistently in the Top 5. Then they killed off the female lead and the series has gradually lost viewers. I think it’s in it’s final days. Maybe one more season. When it was Caviezel saving the day with the help of the female cop it was a much better show. The script writers seem to running out of ideas now.
Maybe they'll write in another female cop.
What a wonderful man he is! Not your average Hollywood type.
Thanks...but I’m fine.
He’s one of two leading characters in the show. His views are well known. He’s not going to get bumped off “Person of Interest”.
And besides, the girls LOVE HIM!
And by girls, I mean old ladies like me.
I just finished the book “The Orphan Masters Son,” which takes place in brutal North Korea.
When I read the following quote in it, I immediately thought of women who have had abortions.
“You do what you have to do to survive, but once you survive, you can’t live with what you’ve done.”
