03/15/2004: "The Vatican speaks on "The Passion""

Of course we all know about the now 'un-official' comment that the Pope most likely made about "The Passion" movie: "It is as it was". Now, in response to pressure from some Jewish groups, The Vatican has made an announcement about the movie's critics regarding anit-Semitism.

The basic point is simple. "The Passion" is very true to the Gospel accounts and as The Church we don't see them as anti-Semetic. Or to quote from the article: "If such a story were anti-Semitic, it would pose a problem for the Judeo-Christian dialogue, because it would be like saying that the Gospels are not historical," he said. "One must realize the seriousness of these affirmations."

Here is the Zenit article on the subject.
