Rabbi Marc Gellman has devoted his most recent column to Mel Gibson and his recent arrest. The essay is entitled, "Driving While Anti-Semitic.
" I think it is worth reading. Is "Mad Mel's" repentance genuine? An interesting test has been proposed by a certain Rabbi Boteach. He suggests that the best way for Mel to prove his apology is real would be to attach the following disclaimer to all future releases of his movie, The Passion
The Romans killed Jesus, and that any of the Jewish leadership, like Caiaphas the High Priest, who called for Jesus’ death were all in the employ of Rome, and indeed served as the Roman police enforcers in Judea.
Comments on any of this (Rabbi Gellman? Mel Gibson? The Passion?) are welcome...
