Clues Dismissed in Time of 'Passion'
Then there was Gibson's repeated refusal to disavow the views of his father and spiritual mentor, Hutton Gibson, a notorious anti-Semite and Holocaust denier, who cheerfully shares public platforms with unrepentant neo-fascists like the odious Willis Carto. No one can demand that another person repudiate their father, but it's perfectly possible to say, "I love my father, but I don't agree with his ideas." Somehow, Gibson's refusal to do that never bothered "The Passion's" fans.
so, essentially: nineteenth-century nun fanfic.
have you ever seen it, p.s.? i think it's online somewhere, the whole thing, or was. kind of glorious, really, almost Pythonesque. like, "chapter nine: the first fall of the Christ." "chapter ten, the second fall of the Christ." "chapter eleven, the third fall of the Christ..." and so on, you know, I don't know how many falls, but you know, she was awfully big on numbers: number of lashes, number of wounds... one hesitates to use the word "pornographic"...oh, wait, no one doesn't.
