Why was it JUST A MOVIE, GET OVER IT FOLKS, when it was The Last Temptation of Christ, but when it is The Passion of the Christ it is THE MOST DANGEROUS MOVIE EVER FILMED AND THE PROBABLE CAUSE OF THE SECOND HOLOCAUST.
The psychic disconnect is starting to gnaw at me and drive me crazy. When the subject is sex, or drugs or rock and roll, we who would take the media's effect on society seriously are told to just "don't watch it, no one is forcing you to go," or "lighten up" or "Oh, come on, it's just a movie. It can't change anything."
But with The Passion of the Christ--well, that's different. This one movie is so dangerous it must be damned loudly and often or God knows WHAT might happen.
I am sick, sick SICK to death of being looked down upon by some self-annointed elite who know better than I. "There, there, dear. Settle down. We know fools like you are prone to rage--see what we've been saying?"
It makes me angry. More than angry, actually. It makes me furious. But more than that it makes me sad. Sad for the world, sad for me.
O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not! Behold, your house is left unto you desolate. For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.
