All this uproar by the Jews about The Passion is just plain stupid.

They say that the movie shows that the Jews killed Jesus....

ummm... ok.... that IS what the bible says..... so whats wrong with that????

They then say that it will bring up anti-semantic (i'm sure I spelled that wrong) views....
See.. thats where I am confused.. if watching a movie that depicts.. pretty much... what was in the bible... will bring up views that go against Jews... then wouldn't the same be said about people reading the bible?

The Passion is going to quickly become one of the top Movies of all time.... why? Cause the Jewish want it that way... You can't say they don't... they are the ones making all the stink about it which means more people will go to see it which means it'll become one of the best......

Eeek! Holy offensiveness Batman!

While I am not Jewish myself, perhaps you could try and understand the jewish perspective a bit?

I mean, the Jewish people, as a whole, have been one of the most persecuted sects ever. A lot of what is being said is out of fear of future persecution. Reading a book (even the Bible) is not nearly as impactful (for most) as seeing something on the big screen.

And, your logic that the JEWS want it to be a success... huh??? I don't see how you figure that.

You are more than welcome to have whatever views you want to have and I will respect that. But, please try and see where the Jewish people are coming from. The "it's what the Bible says" argument hold no water with them. It would be like telling you, "Well, it's what the Koran says" or "It's what the Book of Mormon says"

And, to be completely technical, Pontius Pilate, a non-jew, was the one who gave the orders. Now, yes, the PEOPLE called for it, but he COULD have stepped in if he REALLY wanted to.

But who are we kidding, Christians should not point fingers... if we believe he died for our sins, then each and everyone of us should take responsibility for His death...

Sorry for the rant... My boyfriend is Jewish and we have had some in depth discussion over the movie.

i was going to comment with the same exact thing.

also, you should note that there is a divide among the jewish community. however, the loudest ones are the ones against it.

non-jews see the movie from the "reality" portrayed in the bible. the jews see the movie from the "reality" of the past 2000 years where passion plays were used to stir up violent anti-semitism.

oh, and saying that the jews WANT it to be the top movie of all time, well, that just sounds like a hick zionist-conspiracy theory to me, right up alongside the one about the jews owning all the banks in the world a la "protocols of the elders of zion"

The person who gave the orders to kill Jesus was a non-jew.

I expected nothing less than a post like this from you. heh.

Don - I think you are just asking for people to get upset. Whether or not this movie brings in good movie in the box office or not, does not make it a good movie or one of the best of all time. Mel Gibson admittedly thinks less of Jews than of Christians. This movie whether or not depicts the story in the bible, is irrelevant. This is just asking for jews to continue to have to have to endure persecution. Obviously with your views, you must just be as anti-semetic as the next one. Why would you want to be friends with a jew?

nope, I'm not...

I'm just saying.. The jews are all angry about this movie.. then why do they keep promoting it??

when every other one of them has to get on TV to say the same thing over and over again... then it's just as good as promoting it... Everyone wants to go see what the big deal is now...

and that will lead to increased ticket sales.. which will lead to it being named one of the best ever....

all because the media loves a situation like this and all of the jewish people complaining and protesting just fed the fire....
