mel's passion

so, last night, steve got the passion of the christ...

i have no interest in watching that film... i'm not really religious or anything and the thought of watching a 45 minute torture scene just doesn't do it for me...

i almost felt like i should watch it, though... just in case the "spirit moved him." because if i have to go to church every week, i want to know why....

but, my common sense took over and i stayed away while he watched it....

2 hours later, i was relieved to find out that he was wholly unimpressed with the movie. apparently, it's been overrated... and i knew he wouldn't really make me go to church with him, but still... you just never know, do you?

there is a lady here at work who took her 5 year old son and together they saw that movie 3 or 4 times... apparently, the kid slept most of the time. but, she said she cried and cried and cried. yeah, if i had to watch torture scenes, i'd probably cry, too...

but all of the christians at work were all mortified that i didn't go see it. "oh my goodness! you HAVE to go see it! tonight! go tonight!" HEY! don't force your crap on me!

if someone is so damned interested about what happened during the last 12 hours of jesus' life, why don't they just pick up their bible and read about it? if they can get through those long ass harry potter books, they can most certainly get through the gospels.

also, when are they going to get a real jewish man to play jesus. they always get these anorexic, white, bee gees looking men to be jesus. what the hell is up with that?

and i'm sure mel gibson thinks that this movie did well because god blessed him. and what about about all the other fervent believers in the world that are suffering and/or poor and/or can't feed their families? why doesn't god bless them? maybe god just loves good looking and famous people more. or maybe he loves mel gibson more because he thought the mad max movies rocked.

i think god should take everything away from him (like job) and see how steadfast mel is in his faith. he'd curse god faster than i'd get lynched here for proclaiming my hate for the GOP... and that's pretty quick.

*sigh* steve's right... i am an angry, angry girl. i'm so glad it's a long weekend.

I'm sure God would want that woman showing her 5 year old son graphic torture scenes again and again...

Sheesh. For what it's worth, I think your anger is well-founded. (of course this is coming from someone who was once was court-ordered to attend anger therapy)
