This is the kind of crap I'm talking about. You got this fake-ass movie supposedly depicting the "true" story of Jesus when it can't be true if
Jesus isn't black in the film. Then, all the Jesus Freaks get all goofy and reverant, saying, "In the name of God, you must see this gory bloodfest
of a film. See the blood. See the gore. See the torture. Praise Jesus."
Then, tis not bad enough that they will be making filthy lucre off the lie but now look what their doing!
February 19, 2004 -- Replicas of the nails used to hang Jesus on the cross have become the red-hot official merchandise linked to Mel Gibson's
controversial new movie, "The Passion of the Christ."
Pendants made from the pewter, 2 1/2-inch nails - selling for $16.99 - all but flew out of the Christian Publications Bookstore on West 43rd Street as
soon as they were put on display.
Hundreds of stores across the country will be selling licensed items tied to the movie, a graphically violent depiction of the last 12 hours of
Christ's life, which opens next week on Ash Wednesday.
The souvenirs include a book, pins, key chains, coffee mugs and T-shirts.
But the most unusual collectibles are the nails, each of which hangs on a leather cord.
Its side bears the inscription "Isaiah 53:5," referring to a Bible verse that begins, "He was pierced for our transgressions . . ."
