Now I know that his a bogus report. Hutton Gibson would NEVER be involved in a "Vatican endorsement". Hutton Gibson despises the Vatican has it is right now. He operates outside of the Vatican, and the Holy See. Haven't you read anything about Hutton?
Steve Feurestein is the radio broadcaster who called Hutton days before The Passion came out and ambushed him into talking to him. He didn't even know he was on the radio.
Steve McEveety, one of Gibson's producers is who Hutton was tallking about with the "Vatican endorsement".
Nonsense, he wasn't ambushed, he knew precisely what he was saying. His commentary was widely reported. And I made a point of listening to the interview live, in anticipation of the "he didn't say it" nonsense. What Hutton said in the interview is consistant with previous statements. And you'll note his contempt for the Vatican and the Pope in the interview. It's an accurate condensation of Hutton's worldview.
If it makes you feel better to consider the interviow "bogus", you're welcome to call me a liar.
