Mel Gibson and Jesus

Heard about this on the radio last night and went and found the transcript on Fox News. Seems Mel Gibson is making a film about the death of Jesus. Apparently a very graphic film.

And I say, more power to him.

Its strange people are giving him crap about a movie about Jesus. To me Signs was a blatantly Christian movie, but nobody seemed to notice. Why is that? Because it was scary? There’s lots of scary stuff in the Bible – including Jesus getting killed.

I should point out Gibson wasn’t whining about the criticism either. He said, ” I think he’s been sent. So, that’s the way it is. You got to deal with these things. I’m a big boy and I can take care of myself. And you can say what you like about me. I’m a public person, I suppose, although I don’t ever remember signing the paper that I said I had no rights to privacy. But you can pick on me.”

Of course Bill O’Reilly, the king of outrage, was the interviewer and he seemed upset about it.
