Christians take legal action against BBC

close

Warning: This post was published more than 12 years ago.

I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might have changed in the 12 years since I wrote this post.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Many thanks for your understanding.

I can’t believe this battle is still raging. I’ve extensively commented on my views in the past, so I won’t rake over old ground again. Suffice to say, what ever happened to tolerance and living in peace with your fellow man? Especially when your fellow man is actually standing up for your values, albeit in a comic way, borrowing imagery from your religion.

Frankly, The Passion of Christ should be much more offensive as far as I can see, what with that elevating Mel Gibson to the level of God, and actually portraying the Biblical characters – unlike The Opera, which only portrays a corrupt individual’s disturbed imagination of the characters.
