The primary criticism received by Mel Gibson's "The Passion of the Christ" was that it was anti-Semitic. Nevertheless, the film and Gibson himself were embraced by Christians. Now it appears that Gibson has revealed his true feelings about Jews even more clearly. During a recent DUI arrest, Gibson became belligerent and made unmistakably anti-Semitic statements to the police arresting him. It doesn't sound like Jewish leaders are buying his post-incident apology either. I can't help wondering if this incident will make Gibson more or less popular among his many Christian fans.
