Look at the comment someone posted under the entry below regarding Firefly.
It’s a grass-roots ad for Mel Gibson’s Jesus flick, and against those who are protesting it for its alleged anti-semitism.
It’s bald-faced and has the sort of subtlety we love in our Christian fanatics.
Normally, I’d delete it, since it’s got absolutely nothing to do with anything I’ve discussed on the blog (though I’ve been mulling a comment about Gibson and his flick), but I find it an amusing enough piece of spam I’m going to leave it. The fact that I’m already somehow getting spam on here is actually a positive sign that somebody is reading.
And, Kyle…as far as Gibson’s Jesus movie is concerned, I can only go on what I’ve heard from all the parties so loudly shouting about it, and I have this to say:
It sounds like a brilliant piece of work.
It sounds like as dedicated a bit of proselytizing as a Lani Riefenstahl flick.
It sounds like an unrelenting bath in extreme violence, and I’m fine with that, since it’s in context, but I don’t particularly want to sit through it.
It sounds likely that it really is anti-semitic, considering the brand of Catholicism practiced by the Gibson clan.
I’ve always really like Mel Gibson and had a lot of respect for him, but he seems to be going off the deep end. His saying he wanted that reporter’s intestines on a stick and wants to kill the man’s dog didn’t give me confidence he was approaching this topic in a rational manner.
Bush’s America will make this movie HUGE.
And, Kyle, kiss my ass. My blog’s not here for your purposes, it’s here for mine.
