    Actually I believe that the Christians have probably been responsible more death and suffering than anyone else in the last 2 millenia. Interestingly all 3 three of these guys are Christians.

    Wasn’t it Jesus who first said, “I came here because I wanted to kill people”?

    Jesus was a Jew. Jesus begat Christianity. I think we’re missing what Gibson was really saying: “Fucking Jesus Christ… The Jesus Christians are responsible for all the wars in the world.”

    Aaah Buddhism and its gentle Samurai…

    You know, the guy was drunk (assuming the credibility of this story). As he said himself, once he sobered up, at least he didn’t kill anybody. Driving drunk, he was dangerous. Ranting, probably not so dangerous. In all seriousness, Jesus would’ve forgiven him. I think we ought to do the same. And I’m a Jew, sort of.

    With anyone else, I think that maybe it could be excused, Chelsea, but in the case of Mel Gibson there’s a long history of both thought and action which seem to indicate that there’s more to it. In this instance, it seems more like a case of “in vino veritas.” His father, I’ll remind you, is Holocaust denier Hutton Gibson.

    Actually, what Jesus said is: “I come not to send peace, but a sword.” (Matthew 10:34) He was probably misquoted, though; he probably really said something like, “Hey, look what I can do with this sword.”

    Jesus would have cast Mel’s alcoholism into a herd of swine; he might think, though, that Mel WAS a herd of swine.

    Tony:

    Yes, absolutely. I’m just saying, he didn’t make these comments cold-sober at a press conference. I find the DWI a lot more disturbing and less forgiveable.

    He was a perfectly good driver in Mad Max. I don’t know what happened.

    Tina Turner must be behind it. This incident is totally beyond thunderdome.

    “So into this bar walk the worst President ever, an anti-Semitic director and this military guy who raped a 14-year old and murdered her whole family…”

    I just can’t think of a good ending. Any ideas?

    …and the bartender says, “Look. You boys’ll have to hold your AA meeting somewhere else.”

    …The TV above the bar showed footage of recent warfare.

    Can you match the speaker with his reaction?

    a) “Fucking Jews.”
    b) “Bang! Kaboom! Whee!”
    c) “Nice rack on that dead chick.”
