    Biggest problem I have with this movie can be summed up by a ordained priest who came on TV and gave his remarks. He said something along the lines of "this movie confirms what everyone already knows". From the people around me, many share that opinion. Sorry to break it to you but the Bible is not proven fact, and is likely far from it. The King Arthur tale is just as likely a true story. I doubt I'll see the movie. I don't have much of a desire to go see a guy tortured for two hours.

    As an administrator I must ask that you calm down Cameron. It doesn't matter how religious you are, if an arguement is over it is over, plain and simple. I am not going to allow you to escalate this situation by refusing to step down and agree to disagree, because I can tell you by the way you are acting right now, you will get banned in the near future. With how angry you are, you are going to flame somebody and I'm sure even you knew that, because it's been a few hours since you've last posted.

    I'm sorry your religion was insulted (and you can be sure I follow christianity as well) but if you are really relgious you'd know it would be better to forgive and forget. Do you think Christ would enjoy seeing you fight with someone over christianity? No way. Christ promoted peace and a tolerance for everyone around him, and fighting like you are is not the best way to show your Christianity.

    Be the better man and walk away, don't force a fight to go further then it actually is. All it will do is get you in trouble, regardless if it was a matter close to the heart or not. I still believe in a god, but I would never force anger onto somebody because they made a false assumption about my religion. I would simply laugh at them for being misinformed and be the better man by walking away.

    Yeah, I heard that it's only that. I thought it was pretty assuring, I'm a sick person, I might be intrigued by this. I hate theaters, though, so I won't watch until it comes to DVD.

    Yeah, the Bible has been translated and retold so many times, what started off way back in the ancient times as a true story has been changed and twisted along its way to the modern day, English bible.

    Hey, I said sorry and I want to drop it. What else do you want? French fries?

    This can all be over and we can make it a joke, so let's stop fighting, alright?

    And don't take everything so literally, I didn't mean every christian in the world, but there are enough that do hate atheists because they think we worship satan. I didn't mean to offend your religion or you, but there are very ignorant people who are misinformed about atheism.

    Yes, actually, I do. Like, uhh... NOW. :p

    I'll admit, I was very tempted at times, but I have a lot more self-control than that.

    I'd just like to say, what's the point of this movie? People generally know how Jesus died, they know that he was tortured and crucified and if they're devout Christians, they'd probably know even more details. So this movie isn't exactly breaking new grounds or telling us something we don't already know. It's just 2 hours of unnecessary gore and violence and how some people can treat that as entertainment is beyond me.

    I guess it's for people who want to know more but don't want to read the bible, if that makes sense. :wth:

    If they want to know more, they should just read the Bible. The movie distorts some bits of what was told in the Bible and that'll give people a wrong impression of the whole event.

    most people including most christians dont know what Jesus really went through for our sake, we only get the sunday school version, wathcing this shows us how much he did for us, and is really moving.

    What they're showing in the theaters is no better than the Sunday school version. :p It's moving but really brutal as well.

    History according to Hollywood. :rolleyes:

    Not being a follower of any religion I don't if this is..correct but I assume that in a church or rather a 'Sunday school' you do more reading, listening to someone tell you about..what Jesus went through. Evidently this movie takes you one step closer to the event. You see it, visualize it with more..hrmm what's the word I'm looking for..emotion? Point being is like tkd_rap said, you see what Jesus really went through, the chance to see just what it was he had to endure.

    Nonetheless I hope to see the movie soon.

    By all means the movie does help you to visualise the event. All I'm saying is that it's not giving people all the facts. Watching 'The Passion' just to see what Jesus went through is like being informed about the Pearl Harbor attack by watching 'Pearl Harbor'. It's visually entertaining but it doesn't mean people shouldn't read the history books.

    on another note: :whistle:


    Fox to Distribute "The Passion" on DVD
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The company that was originally committed to distributing The Passion of the Christ theatrically, 20th Century Fox, has now agreed to distribute the film on video and DVD.

    Fox, which backed out of distributing the film amidst the controversy surrounding it, has a first-look production deal with Mel Gibson's Icon Productions, which produced the film. No further details are available at this time.
