it appears, in all this week's discussion abt Mel's movie, that one major dividing line betw the yea- n nay-sayers is how Romanism is viewed--in particular, Traditional Roman Catholicism. Mel admits consulting extensively w his Jesuit advisors during the making of the film, n both he n Jim Caviezel participated in the Romish Mass every day during the shoot. we also know fr Mel that he included many Romish elements in his portrayal of Jesus suffering, including but not limited to stigmatist nun Emmerich's "Dolorous Passion." the yea-sayers seem to have no problem w any of that n see the movie as "accurate" to the biblical account. the nay-sayers object to the Romish elements surrounding n contained in the movie, n so withhold endorsement.
