Realism or Celebration?
I haven't seen The Passion, but my sister did. Her account of the film convinced me NOT to see it.
She was absolutely disgusted with the violence. The film deals only with the last few hours of Jesus's life. To clarify; it's NOT about what He SAID. That all happened at an earlier stage. What the film seems to be about is the VIOLENCE and TORTURE Jesus was forced to endure and ultimately die of.
That fact to me smells of the agenda to de-sensitize the masses to violence, torture, humiliation, blood and gore.
If anything, it seems to be a CELEBRATION of the Crucifiction.
That's not cute now, is it?
Three things are sacred to me: first Truth, and then, in its tracks, primordial prayer; Then virtue–nobility of soul which, in God walks on the path of beauty. Frithjof Schuon
