Oscar's Passion

Hollywood, Hollywood, Hollywood....will they ever learn? Still upset over the election, I guess they want to exert their revenge by denying Passion of the Christ the most deserved Oscar nomination I've ever witnessed. This movie reached people and affected them deep in their souls. To view this movie with an open, loving heart is nothing less than a true religious experience. Patrick Hynes of The American Spectator has a detailed article debunking the excuses Hollywood is using to deny this most important movie a nomination for an Oscar.

Even from a purely movie-critiquing point of view, Passion was one of the most beautiful, well-acted movies I've ever seen. One of the most poignant scenes in the film is when Mary flashes back to Jesus's childhood: He falls as a toddler, she runs to Him to cradle her son and give Him comfort. At this moment in the film, Jesus falls once again in the sand as He is being forced to carry His cross. She runs to him and kneels in the sand so they are face to face near the ground. His face and body are completely covered in blood. Jesus looks at His mother and cups her face in His hands and says (to my recollection): "Look Mother, I'm making all things new!"

If that does not move you, I don't know what to say. Go read the article so that you may be well equipped to speak the truth to what the MSM will faithfully be spewing to the uninformed masses in the coming months.
