I hope that all who oppose the Passion film realize that those of who support it and advocate it are not clamoring for its elevation to the same "rung" as our Holy Scriptures. I hope that all who oppose the film realize that we realize that their are several Catholic elements in the film, as well as extra-Biblical scenes. I hope that all who oppose the film realize that Mel Gibson never claims to be anything other than your typical, everyday Catholic, who is living out his worldview and faith (even if I disagree with his views), just as we all do. By supporting the tremendous opportunity provided by this film to open people up to questions about Jesus and gain a further appreciation for what He did for us, I hope that those who oppose the film realize that we are not "compromising our beliefs" in support of heresy. Finally, I pray that both sides will realize that either side is not necessarily any more or less closer to God. My relationship with God is still between myself and Him... I try not to judge the quality of a person's walk with Him by what he/she supports on this board. Although I have seen this judging take place somewhat in the Bible versions board, I am not saying this takes place regarding the Passion film. However, I pray that it doesn't. God bless!
