For some time now, we have been hearing about Mel Gibson’s new movie, The Passion of the Christ, the biblical account of the last hours of Christ’s earthly life.

Some claim it is too violent and graphic.

Some claim it is anti-Semitic, though the producer filmed his own hand nailing Jesus to the cross because he said that he and all living are equally guilty in Jesus’ death.

Others claim they believe it really happened, but that they share no responsibility in Jesus’ crucifixion.

Recently, there was a letter to the editor in the News-Journal from a woman in Port Orange named Madeleine Evans. After viewing the movie she wrote,

“Personally, I have no problem believing what Jesus did, but I want no responsibility for it. I will pay for my own sins (I usually do), thank you very much. I would never want anyone to go through so much suffering for me.”
