What he said was no worse than the various statements made by people on this forum on both sides of the issue. Everyone is a biggot or racisit in some way. Anyone who says they are not is a liar..... then again everyone is that also.

You are not a bigot if you criticize or put down a religion.
It is amazing how many uneducated people surf the net.
Religion is not a RACE!!!!!!!!!!

Actually a bigot doesn't have to be race, it is just against any specific group. A racist is race. As I said, everyone is a bigot or a racist in their own right.

Then I must be a really huge bigot cause I have no respect of love for Jews and other groups.
I would never physicaly hurt a jew but I do not spent one cent that goes to a Jew. I make sure and research any purchase I make and if a Jew owns the comapny then I dont spend a penny to defend them
There was a certain type of food I enjoyed for many years, the company got sold out to a Jewish company, I have not eaten the stuff in 3 years, I figured out the reciepe and I make it at home now.

Kyle,

Everyone has either biggotry or racism in them. The problem is with the people who do not recognize it in themselves and point the finger at everyone else so they feel better. They accuse everyone who does not share their point of view of biggotry and racism. Or they will coin a phrase ending in "place your cause here_phobe" and try to shame people ito agreeing with them.

It is quite pathetic really....

no, Jodie, you're wrong -- he is an anti-semite

"Passion" was a sick willful thrust -- there are four Gospels, all of which invent a fiction about Jesus' hours after his arrest (no one knows what happened, but without question the Jews didn't have much to do with it, and Pilate never spent one second around Jesus or even thinking about him)-- Gibson chose the story that said the Jews are forever damned, a story absent from the other three fictions

meanwhile, his father is widely quoted saying that all the European Jews MOVED! you know, they just picked up and left!

there is respecting your parents, there is protecting your privacy against the press, and then there is lacking integrity altogether -- anyone with integrity, in Gibson's position, would have sacrificed his disdain for the press's intrusions -- JUST THIS ONCE -- by making at least one statement asserting that his father was dead wrong about this subject (OH ... MY ... PA-PA!...), and that no fewer than ten million (six million Jews) died as deliberate mass-murder in the camps

BUT HE DIDN'T

why?

let me explain: HE HATES JEWS

oh, but some of his best friends are ...

Why all the fuss about these people who didnt and dont recognize Jesus as the messiah. As a Christian I wont stand up for them, the same way, they wont stand up for Christ.

If you have read the four Gospels, you then know they were not "invented". And they certainly did correlate with each other.
And the Jews were very instrumental,( as was Pilate and the Romans) in the execution of the Messiah, JESUS.

my guess is that JF would be extrememly angry if some random drunk guy started spouting off about Hinckley -- you can imagine her frowningly indignant, very put-upon, hurt, outraged, self-righteous -- stomping off in high-heels from the coffee shop -- but let MEL be an anti-semitic pr##k ... any frowning? being indignant? NOOOO! because he's MEL!-- the wonderful MEL!-- JF, multiply your anger by several million, and think about it

But then again, English is a second language for me. I was hoping the grammar discussion would weed out some of the stupidity flying around.

Did anyone notice Jodie Foster's legs in the last movie she did with Denzell Washington? Tell me those were not the sexist looking legs yet? You go Jodie. If you're reading this, post me back.:)

I think you're barking up the wrong tree, there, Brad. Jodie is a great actress, smart, and all of that - but I think she flies a flag of a different allegiance, if you know what I mean.
Really? Are you kidding me? She's a box cutter?
