Mel Gibson's Going to Make Maccabees Film

Post  otremer6 on Fri Sep 09, 2011 12:02 am

Edit: Not really a shocker for anyone who reads this blog regularly. Mr. Gibson is continuing his creative pilgrimage by making something that will have something for everyone, including his detractors. There is as yet no word about how Protestants will feel about a Deuterocanonical book being the subject of his next religious film.

It will do something no religious film we know of has attempted before. It will be a Religious "Western" with Jewish cowboys as the good guys. A real showdown between good and evil.

Well... something for them to kvetch about, anyway...

New York, NY, September 9, 2011 … The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) today reacted to reports that Hollywood actor and director Mel Gibson, who has a history of making anti-Semitic remarks and whose 2004 film "The Passion of the Christ" evoked age-old stereotypes about Jews, is planning to make a film with Warner Bros. based on the life of the Judean hero Judah Maccabee.

Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director, issued the following statement:
We would have hoped that Warner Bros. could have found someone better than Mel Gibson to direct or perhaps even star in a film on the life of the Jewish historical icon Judah Maccabee. As a hero of the Jewish people and a universal hero in the struggle for religious liberty, Judah Maccabee deserves better. It would be a travesty to have the story of the Maccabees told by one who has no respect and sensitivity for other people's religious views.

Not only has Mel Gibson shown outward antagonism toward Jews and Judaism in his public statements and actions, but his previous attempt to bring biblical history to life on the screen was marred by anti-Semitism. Rather than listen to respected religious leaders, both Christian and Jewish, who voiced concerns then about the insensitive elements of his depiction of the last hours and crucifixion of Jesus, Gibson showed contempt for those voices and refused to make changes that might have helped turn his passion of hate into a passion of love.

While we do not argue with Mel Gibson's right to make this film, we still strongly believe that Warner Bros. should reconsider Gibson's involvement in this project.

That's an interesting display of logic.

Hypocrite.

The story of the Maccabees is part of Catholic history.
