    Welcome back! Pay no attention to the whiners you point out that you're
    spamming again! There just right wing net fascists who don't like
    spammers!!!

    Whatever happened to your "livelihood" and "I'm going to continue
    writing reviews and posting them on my site" and "you know against my
    better judgement I am going to post specific newsgroup versions of my
    updates"?

    Next time review DVDs that will rid you of your compulsion to spam.

    Mark, I know that you have indicated time and again that you are
    very intelligent and have received several degrees from English language
    institutions of higher learning.

    However, it would benefit your website immensely if you would allow a
    literate person to proofread and edit your DVD "reviews" before you post
    them. A proofreader might have spared you the following literary
    embarrassments:

    "I can understand why some might find the moving upsetting and if I were
    Jewish than perhaps my feelings would be different because I do agree
    that a film like this is upsetting, but I do not believe that Gibson
    intended to point a finger at any one person or group of people as being
    solely culpable in the death of Jesus."

    "While viewing the film on DVD I began to cry at the scene where Jesus'
    mother Mary come to Jesus as he falls with the great weight of the cross
    upon his back and Gibson intercuts this with a flashback of Mary running
    to console Jesus as a boy the way any mother would do if they saw their
    son or daughter slip and fall to the ground."

    "Gibson as a filmmaker has his point of view and regardless of whether
    or not you agree with him or think he is just playing with the viewer's
    emotions like keys on a piano, I have to state that every film tries to
    reach the audience on some deep level regardless of whether or not it is
    intentional or simply a coincidence."

    The same people who would "appreciate" this film are the same people who are
    supporting the US service people who abused the inmates at Abu Graib prison
    in Iraq... and the same people who would send death threats to the man who
    turned over the photos to the proper authorities...

    Family values INDEED... is this what America is really all about?

    Well, we certainly know your home town of San Francisco is all about
    family values, don't we?

    And I guess you've been too brainwashed by the liberal idiotology of San
    Fran and believe all that left wing propaganda. I have yet to hear or
    read about anyone supporting the US service people who abused those
    inmates. I'm sure there are some, but there's always a couple kooks on
    both sides. Yet, for some reason you and the NY Times just can't seem
    to get over that incident.

    I guess I should ask the standard question: Have you seen the film? If
    so, and you still don't like it, that's fine. I have seen it. It's
    indeed as graphic as everyone has claimed it is. I don't see it as
    sado-masachist (hey, being from San Fran, you should be supportive of
    that! Of course that is NOT to imply that you participate in
    sado-masachism). But to assert that people that appreciate that film as
    being some sort of wacko is really generalizing and I thought people of
    San Fran were all about compassion and open-mindedness. What do you
    think about people that appreciate something like Kill Bill or Reservoir
    Dogs or any of Romero's zombie films?

    I realize my post is quite inflammatory. And I'm sure I'll be accused
    of being a racist/bigot/homophobe/grandma killing/wacko conservative.
    But I have to take offense to your assertion about people that
    appreciate The Passion. The Passion is not going to be everyone's cup
    of tea for any number of reasons and that is fine. I could care less.
    I'm not trying to change your opinion about the film or convince you
    that it is a very good film. But don't jump to conclusions and
    generalizations about people that do appreciate the film as I did with
    people from San Francisco. I know many people from San Fran that are
    great people and it is indeed a great city. But did you like me making
    rash generalizations about its occupants, including yourself? Think
    about that the next time you make statements like you did above...

    Everyone I know loves their families and children and are concerned for

    I am not brainwashed... I use my brain to discern what is right and what is
    wrong... it is WRONG to abuse human beings... it is WRONG to discriminate
    against other human beings because they have a different point of view... as
    the Buddhists state... DO WHAT YOU WILL BUT HARM NONE.

    It was on the news last night... and why should I "get over" it? It was an
    unjust act by our military against people in prison... do you condone this
    type of action? It sounds by your arguement that you do. If we "get over"
    it, then it will continue to happen... again and again... just like in nazi
    Germany...

    I was raised a Roman Catholic as a child... I believed all they taught me...
    until I started to use the brain that god gave me and look around at the
    world... and I began to study history... about the burning of millions of
    "witches" (women mostly) and the Inquisition that slaughtered the Cathars of
    France because they questioned the greed and debauchery of the Vatican...
    and today they are condeming me as a human being (created by god) because of
    who I love... LOVE... and others of "faith" (curious that it is "christians"
    who would point a finger at me) who would no sooner stone me or burn me at
    the stake for my being the person I am... I work hard, pay my taxes, respect
    the law... what am I doing wrong except living my life.

    If all of this is OK in your eyes then I am sorry for you and the world you
    live in... a place where it is ok to condem others in the name of god...
    whose god? It's a big wide wonderful world full of kind and loving people
    who do not feel as you do.

    Remember... this was a Hollywood movie...not revelation from god... it's
    purpose was to make money.

    Well, it's quite apparent that you're not the type of person that likes
    to use their mind to carry on a level-headed conversation. Your
    assumptions about me and your generalizations speaks volumes about you.
    It's also apparent you have issues with people that have faith, which
    is sadly typical for a lot of liberals. Oh well...c'est la vie...

    I make no assumptions about you... and no generalizations... but you are
    wrong, I DO like to use my mind and I DO like to have level-headed
    discussion.

    My issue with people of faith is about hypocrisy... saying one thing but
    doing another.

    You assume I am a LIBERAL (is that bad?) In my "day job" I take care of a
    church.

    As a human being YOU CHOOSE what to believe in... if I choose to believe in
    the Easter Bunny or Santa Claus that is my CHOICE... but it doesn't mean it
    is true... and it doesn't give me the right to persecute others if they
    DON'T believe in the Easter Bunny or Santa Claus... that is THEIR right as a
    human being.

    Just my humble opinion... backed by rational thinking...! (and a few laws)
