One would think that most Christians, worshipping a divine individual who was executed unjustly, would be against the death penalty- there's also the whole "let he who was without sin cast the first stone" bit as well. Why the hell do these funamentalist people, who ignore just about everything the gentle Nazarene (I think Marion Zimmer Bradley coined that term) said, insist on saying that they are followers of Christ? Hell, why don't they just can the charade and call themselves neo-Jehovists, or Leviticusists?
Not having a T.V. machine, I don't know if any stations are playing The Passion of the Christ. When the movie came out, I was going out with a beautiful girl from a working-class suburb of Krakow. She mentioned the movie, and I told her that she probably shouldn't see it, as it would only upset her. She saw the movie with a friend and, hours later, she asked me half-jokingly if her eyes were still red from crying. I thought, "Shit, why would anyone watch a three hour movie of an innocent guy being tortured and killed, especially when you kinda know the guy, you've probably got a picture of him in your house?"
