    if so, why?

    I just don't get it . . .

    it's a beautiful film that portrays the divine and human nature of Christ.

    people were offended before they saw it.


    BTW--The Pope didn't become a priest until he was 33, you know he's no virgin

    Because people don't want to entertain the idea that Jesus has sexual relations...especially with a prostitute.

    Most people who live able-bodied adult lives have sex in their lifetimes, yet people are so uptight about it. :dontknow:

    in many ways, the music also made the film what it is . . .

    Peter Gabriel can write some unique music when he is motivated.

    I wasn't offended, I just didn't think it was very good (and I'm a big Scorcese fan). There have already been so many Jesus movies, I don't think there's a reason to make one unless you're doing something really different. The soundtrack was great though. :dontknow:

    i think Scorsese was not happy with it: he was uncredited for creating the screenplay of the movie he publicly directed.

    one of the best shows I ever saw was Gabriel in the late 80s easily in my top 5 shows. I was surprised
