Remember when those cartoons in Europe spawned a bunch of death threats and street protests from radical Muslims? And the good guys were saying, hey, don’t touch our freedom of speech.
A new book about the movie, “The Last Temptation of Christ” is out. It reminds me that there were protests and death threats from Christians fighting against freedom of speech not too long ago.
That was about a movie imagining Christ imagining having a different life. What if he’d married and had kids? Pretty tame, I think, but it was enough to get scary for some of those involved.
(And of course, THE JEWS got blamed for a screenplay written by a Christian, directed by another Christian, based on a book written by a third Christian.)
