A Little Overlooked Point

BBC NEWS | Campaign against Gibson's Passion

Frankly, this has me a little stymied; I'm no biblical expert, but seems to me the Romans actually did the killing, and Jesus was Jewish -- so 'blaming the Jews' for anything is a little far fetched. Passion plays, though, were put forth to incite people, and this is one, so I'm not surprised... but I think there's one little thing everyone's forgotten in all the hubbub...

The film has also caused debate because all of the dialogue is in Latin and Aramaic, without English subtitles.

Most people don't know Latin or Aramaic.
