I am just AMAZED at all the Mel hatred.
It could just as easily have been John Wayne, but in his day people were not so paranoid about this politically correct crap.
I don,t know much about Mel Gibson, just seen a few movies, i did not watch the passion because i saw the previews and thought it was not scriptural, but i think he is a good actor and i trust some one who says what they think, even if it is just a rant, because i have that same problem, if it is a problem.
And like myself, i bet there are a lot of people out there who if they would think about it would thank god they are not in that spot light.
Hollywood and the media despised John Wayne and was against him, Wayne had to fight them constantly to get his message out. Wayne was attacked on anything that they could attack him on.
