Mel Gibson and Joan of Arc
I do not know how I missed this being a fan of Brittany Spears(1). You may remember her in the Music Awards. We were bombarded with this @#$%^& for weeks.
Mel Gibson's "The Passion of the Christ" film waspowerful, but he was beat up by elements not friendly to Christianity as being "Jew Bashing" and a film that would cause hate and discord. None of this was true of course, and peace reigned in the street, no mobs, no Kristallnacht which must have been a disappointment to the elite mafioso who consider their opinion the right opinion.
Gibson followed "The Passion of the Christ" with a film which was radically an about turn from the "The Passion of the Christ" with "Appocolyto". A very pagan film about the Aztecs in Mexico just before the Spanish conquered it and began to Christianize the population. What he was trying to do with this film I have no idea, but I suspect that it was an attempt by him to show just how down with the whole Hollywood scene he was. ...And there was no attempt then on the part of the media to do other than congratulate Gibson on his ground breaking film, which portrayed human sacrifice other than the sacrifice of the Saviour of the world. They could only have been happier if the Los Angeles community formed churches to tear the hearts out of victims.
It appears that Mel Gibson is considering remaking the 1928 classic film the Passion of Joan of Arc. unfortunately he is considering Brittany Spears to play the part of Joan. This is not a joke. What a travesty. Can this be another attempt by Gibson to show he really is not Catholic, and that by doing this he will again be welcomed into the ranks of the crazy people in Hollywood? Or is it just a way to insult Jheanne la Pucelle? I don't know what to say. Possibly he has gone off the deep end, but must seem normal to the people who surround him. The old saying, "In the land of the blind the man with one eye, is a king." but it is more likely a Greek phrase which may be more appropriate, "Whom the gods would destroy, they first make crazy."
May God forbid this, and
Saint Joan pray for us.
