It is a happy side effect of the Culture War that an Evangelical can spring to the defense of a hard-core Catholic (perhaps more hardcore than the Pope) versus the bigots who manufacture American culture. Everybody who’s actually seen the movie (including gung-ho, pro-Israeli Evangelicals) loves it and says the charge of anti-semitism is hogwash. Perhaps those who hate it should take a little time to find out what they are condemning.
By the way, talked to Scott Hahn yesterday and he got to have a screening of the rough cut. Two thumbs waaaaaay up.
