When I first heard that Mel Gibson was making a movie about Judah Maccabee, I thought, “that can’t be the same Judah Maccabbee I’m thinking of, right? Perhaps there has been some kind of misunderstanding, and he’s actually making another movie about Jesus?” As it turns out, Gibson is making a movie about THE Judah Maccabbee, the Jewish religious hero that led the revolt against the Seleucid Empire. Isn’t there an easier way to prove that you’re not a bigot? Can’t the guy do an honest interview for once, where he actually discusses that his father is a holocaust denier? And during this same interview, maybe he could also explain that he is neither a wife-beater nor a racist? Actually — he’s doomed. He should just hang it up.
