Missing the Point

Those who know my “Religious and Sacred Texts”:http://davidwiley.com/religion.html project will know that I am a religious person. Being so, I couldn’t not post this quote from Salon’s “review”:http://www.salon.com/ent/feature/2003/08/14/gibson/index_np.html of Mel Gibson’s new movie about Jesus Christ.

Following a recent screening of the film, the Anti-Defamation League voiced concerns that Gibson’s film, which he co-wrote, produced and directed, “will fuel hatred, bigotry and anti-Semitism,” and could kick off another round of bloodshed by disconsolate Christians who had just about gotten over their savior’s death.

Just about gotten over it? Does the guy even know what Christianity is about?
