Gumby Jesus?
An article in the LA Times titled "Gimme That New-Time Religion -- a Play-Doh Jesus" may be thing I've read yet about The Passion of the Christ. It's written by David Kuo, who was "special assistant to President Bush and deputy director of the Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives."

If you're not sure you want to read the full article, at least check out the following quote: "The biggest problem I have with "The Passion," however, isn't the violence. It is with the protagonist. The guy on the screen is nothing like that insipid, tunic-wearing, lamb-carrying, two-dimensional, felt-faced Jesus from Sunday school. That Jesus was easy."

Nuff said . . .
