Actor Jon Voight was interviewed on Fox’s “O’Reilly Factor” last night about The Passion of the Christ. Voight complains that Mel Gibson distorted the Gospels, adding elements that weren’t in the Bible and suggesting that it was anti-Semitism. That’s a bit ironic considering that Voight did the same thing in his Bible movie. First, a quote from Voight:
But there—but there is a mixing of all the gospels. He chooses a piece from here, a piece from there, and he mixes them together with what purpose? To minimize the responsibility of the Romans in the crucifixion of Jesus and to point the finger at the Jews.
