    But when we ride very fast motorcycles, we ride with immaculate sanity. We might abuse a substance here and there, but only when it's right. The final measure of any rider's skill is the inverse ratio of his preferred Traveling Speed to the number of bad scars on his body. It is that simple: If you ride fast and crash, you are a bad rider. If you go slow and crash, you are a bad rider. And if you are a bad rider, you should not ride motorcycles.

    WTF is the big deal????? This was an historical re-creation of the last days of Christ. How is that suddenly offensive???? How is this film in ANY way anti-Semetic??? History is what it is!!!!

    BTW, a great film!!!!!!

    Powerful, yes (to a certain audience).

    A great film? Not in my book, and it has nothing to do with anti semitism or any of that BS.

    Like I said in my previous post, it bored the snot out of me, and I would have been angry to have paid to see it in a theatre. Hey, I'm and obnoxious bastard, and that was one of those movies I'd have left early and demanded a refund for...

    movie is art right? and what art means or translates to is up to the indivdual..

    I didnt think it wasn anti-semetic in the least....and no one i know who has seen it thought so either....

    So if you do...maybe there are other issues that need to be delt with...besides bashing a movie and trying to ruin the creators life...

    HAIL SATAN!

    As a "Secular Humanist", I laugh at religious discussions where people get pissed at hear-say and "beliefs", especially when other people can be influenced through a media.

    If it did happen as the movie shows, there is no harm in showing it to the masses and PROFITTING off of it. Even if it didn't, who the hell cares. I'm sure as hell not so insecure about my religion that I need to complain that others may alter their opinion of it from a movie.

    Religion + Entertainment = Nothing good. Ever.


    I never saw the movie, but my reason wasn't really secular at all - I think if I went and watched a movie about Satan getting flogged and beaten for two hours, I'd feel bad for him. And I'd be depressed and would have wasted money paying to see a movie, which I do only to be entertained.

    I can guarantee that Super Troopers will make me speculate and think in depth much more than that crap-fest. At least I didn't know how Super Troopers ended before I saw it!

    Being a confirmed catholic makes me glad I hate organized religion.

    Right on the nose.

    Not from parents, but from friends and teachers and "upstanding citizens who are pillars of the community". Too bad they all got skeletons in their closets and I don't....

    I'm all set with that crap. If anyone gets pissed that I call their religion useless and counterproductive to a successful society, then that's cool with me. Enjoy the hate that Jebus tells you not to have!

    seriously though, I find that a lot of people that get it shoved down their throats during their youth come to absolutely hate it later on. I grew up within the faith (I grew up in a house on the grounds of a vast convent), went to Catholic school for a few years, then eventually went into the public school system, where, if anything, I think it could easily be argued that I retained the core "values" better than had I been "forced" through the system my entire youth.
    ya.. you are a great example

    Not to pick on you Clayton, but that statement is just plain incorrect on so many levels.

    And since when does "skeletons in your closet" have anything to do with faith?
