I don't think someone's ancestry or faith would have much to do with the perception of anti-Semitism in the movie - it basically boils down to whether or not they're an idiot who wants to see things that aren't there. I know lots of Jews and Christians, none of whom lend any credence whatsoever to those ridiculous accusations made by people who haven't even seen the movie.

Read Denby's review in the New Yorker or the latest issue of Newsweek to see what I mean by an anti-semitic gloss. Hook-noses aren't necessary.

Medved's not in awkward position because of his faith per se, but because of his moral majority ass-sucking arguments of the past.

Very entertaining synopsis Jog. You've saved me a few bucks, though a DVD rental oh-so must happen.

Is it me or is there something extremely creepy about all these so-called Christians falling all over themselves to praise a movie which seems to be nothing but Jew-hating snuff porn? And snuff porn which is responsible for killing a human being now?

There is something seriously wrong here.

Medved has sucked up to the Moral Majority because it gives him job security he never would have had if he just stayed a banal critic on TV. He would have disappeared alongside other TV critics like Bill Harris or Jeffry Lyons, if he remained in secular media.

Now, he has a faithful audience of Evangelical Christians who think by supporting him, they can prove to the world that their hate-filled worldview is not in anyway similar to Anti-Semitism previous totalitarian movements have espoused.

Jog now makes me really want to see the movie.

Not bad. I give it a 7 out of 10 on the Troll Scale. That could become a 9, depending on the response you get. Good luck!

No, trolls are cowards who randomly antagonize people under fictitious names and refuse to address serious points.

Saying that Gibson's film is "Jew-hating snuff porn" that is "responsible for killing a human being" is a "serious point?"

Hahah HA hAAhh Ha HAhA AHhAAhahhaha Ahaa!

Now that is a 10 out of 10. Good show! You've elevated your game faster than most would have been capable. I have to say that I'm impressed. Kudos. One would almosy think you believed what you typed.

Responsible for killing a human being ... that's classic.

Yes. Chris Knowles is apparently just a coward who randomly antagonizes people under a non-fictitious name and refuses to address serious points.

So, by his definition (convenient, that), he's NOT a troll.
