I surmise that Mel has more in common with Judas Maccabee than Judas has with many liberal jews. They are the types who would be frequenting the gym in Jerusalem and affecting Greek mannners.
Mel makes good movies however unstable he may be personally.
Jews do tend to be found on every side of every fence.
The real shocker here is not what a small handful of folks have to say; the real shocker is that a biblical movie might be coming out of the swampland. I suspect that many Jewish folks would love to see a good historical movie about the bravery of their past ancestors. Mel is a decent director/actor and I for one would love to see him partake in this Maccabees film.
“As hes laying in the gutter, it is easy for the just as sicko Hollywierd Jews to kick him around. They all deserve each other.”
Who exactly are these Jewish people who are in the gutter kicking Mel Gibson?
Just who are these Jewish lefties attacking the drunk now? The same creeps who were attacking him when he made the Temptation of Christ? He was a drunk then and he’s still a drunk.
Oops, make that The Passion of Christ.
amen doc. Maybe he’ll get some guys shouting how this shouldn’t be watched as they heard someone say it isn’t canon
It was a harsh comment on his part. for sure. I do not know his motive in pursuing this project. I’m just hoping, I guess, that he feels a certain a certain shame in his earlier behavior.
Do you truly not think people can regret and change if the Lord does enlighten them?
I know it is way above my pay grade to know what is in his heart. I do know that his movie of the Passion was amazing to my soul. I’m hoping that his work in the upcoming movie will be as good.
I can respect the position that one would not be able to easily “walk back from that one” comment which you quoted.
Thank you so much for your reply.
Forgive, me, I don’t know what the Golan-Globus team is.
You make a good point. Thank you for your reply.
Thank you for your reply. God bless you.
“Mel can make any movie he wants, and which he can get funding for. Its still a mostly free country.”
EXCELLENT point! Thank you!
“My thought is that if they dont like it, they can make their own competing film.
Of course, they are entitled to their own opinion, but when they play the victim card, I tune em out.
Mel may be an anti-Semite, but hes a good actor, and hes entitled to make a living.”
Well said. I appreciate your reply.
F**king Jews...the Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world. -Mel Gibson
Nor could alcohol make a good person say:
You look like a f-cking pig in heat and if you get raped by a pack of n-ers it will be your fault. -Mel Gibson
so....he's the love child of Pat Buchanan and Alec Baldwin?
And He does historic bad ass, better than anyone, because...He BELIEVES it.
He’s on the vein.
Thank you so much for your comments. I do tend to agree with you! I especially liked your point about the MSM.
Didn’t watch “Beaver”...didn’t appeal to me for some reason. Glad to have that confirmed by you that I didn’t miss something important!
Hmmmmm I believe you said a mouthful there, lazypadawan.
Thanks Alamo-Girl! I appreciate your response...and I do tend to agree with you! (Is that why you are so smart???LOLOL!)
I had that thought too as well, Amberdawn. I appreciate your voicing it better than me.
Thank you so very much for your well-stated response, Unam Sanctam.
I can respect that, FourPeas. Thank you for your kind response.
Thank you so much for your reply and the Google suggestion, montag813. God bless you.
Fascinating. Thank you so much for the scriptural reference, Dr. Brian Kopp. The religious tradition I was raised in did not include that book of scripture. I plan to obtain it and read it in context.
Thank you for your kind and thoughtful reply. I too wish to give the benefit of doubt to Mr. Gibson, if for no other reason than for his work in the Passion.
He did indeed seem to go astray for a bit. But I look at my life, and I know that there are certainly times that could be pointed at and an outsider could easily say, “well there is someone whose life is off the rails!” I can’t even imagine having to do intense growth like that in the public eye.
Glory to God for all Good Things, that by His Grace, I am in His fold.
Good point, RobbyS. Thank you for your reply. He does indeed put himself out there with all his being.
Wow. I had not thought of that, that a potentially great biblical movie could be coming out of the “swampland” as you say! Thanks for your response!
Thanks. I despise his words, which often seem to come verbatim from his father’s mouth, but if he makes a good show of Maccabee, then it’s a step in the right direction for him. Israeli’s and all Jews should be shown in a good light, as (despite American voting records) they are fine human beings overall, and are constantly disparaged in the ‘world media’.
LOLOL! I’m not smart, dear TEXOKIE.
Oh would I love to see this movie!!!
Mel would do a good job. When he is drunk or paranoid from his bipolar illness, he is anti semetic.
When he is in control of himself, he is not.
But the real reason he is hated is because of his movie on Christ. You didn’t see an outcry of hatred when Vanessa Redgrave, a supporter of palestinian terrorists, plaid a woman in a holocaust movie. And her actions were more than a drunken comment.
I think that is an outstanding observation. I have seen people in my own life who would say the most horrendous things about certain groups of people, but when faced with an individual of that group, would give that person the shirt off his back. Those words were indeed the mouthings of nonsensical programming from his background and the culture of his time.
I agree with the importance as well, of portraying the Jewish people as you describe. It is heart breaking to ponder the lies and calumny as well as dire unrelenting persecution which these people have withstood during the centuries.
LOL! well, you are very organized, and persistant in your researches....and your heart seeks always the Word in the Lord! YOU ARE SMART!
(just mho - so can I grow up to be like you???)
I had not thought of him being bipolar, with a genuine illness. If he is indeed that, it goes a long way to mitigating in my mind his previous misbehavior.
Bipolar disease is a terrible burden, and some people with it do indeed self-medicate with alcohol. And even without the alcohol their judgement can be impaired while suffering one of the extreme phases of brain chemical imbalance.
Some of these people are incredibly bright and creative and have much to offer, and bring to us their gifts which are all the more valuable given that they have had to walk through a particular kind of hell to get them delivered to us.
THank you so very much for that insight.
Braveheart, The Passion, The Patriot ... Mel has a message and freedom-haters don’t like it.
In my previous reply to you, I neglected to address your other fine point of comparison between the treatment Mel has gotten and that of Vanessa Redgrave. Definitely a double standard given the devotion of his own heart which the Passion portrayed.
Yes....people like him have to be destroyed and the MSM does their best to do just that. It is all about repetition and ‘gotcha” moments. They do it all the time. (They can destroy most people if they choose—didn’t succeed with Reagan but they formed the “stupid” perception anyhow—they tried).
They did it to McCarthy (Blacklisted by History) and they do it to anyone who hates socialism and leftist policy. They do it to people who say the truth about homosexuality (Braveheart, Bachmann, Cahtolic Church).
They (MSM) destroy anyone who prohibits their agenda of collectivism and teaching children that the abnormal isn’t normal. They want to bring our culture into the sewer like all good cultural Marxists. They are evil and mentally ill and I NEVER let MSM form ANY of my perceptions. They lie.
