The Passion of The Christ (http://www.ThePassionOfTheChrist.com) is in theaters soon - this week on Wednesday.. what do you think about this movie? I'm going to see it for sure - the trailers (http://www.thepassion.tv) were enough to convince me. I read somewhere that it's the widest opening ever for a subtitled movie; I have a feeling subtitles won't detract from the full effect of this movie though.

Some people, not really representative of Jewish people, but rather self appointed Jewish spokespeople, such as Abraham Foxman from the Anti-Defamation League, seem to have been attempting to denounce this film for months as being anti-Semitic. The news reported that they even stole the script last year! But here's what some Jews say (Jews who don't make it their job to tear apart other people): Protesting Gibson's Passion Lacks Moral Legitimacy (http://www.towardtradition.org/article_Mel_Gibson.htm) by Rabbi Daniel Lapin.

I know. It's because most browsers don't really like all the scrolling _divs_. But _I_ like the scrolling divs; it makes my friends page a breeze to skim- once it loads. Once it's loaded, it runs just fine for me. Up to that point, it's very slow. Are the comment pages slow for you as well? Or just the pages with entries on them?
