I don't believe that Mel Gibson or anybody is forcing their personal 'vision' on "us." Remember, this is just a movie--nobody's being forced to go see this. After all, when one with a conservative viewpoint makes a comment about a more liberal issue in the media (i.e. homosexuality or promiscuous sex,) the comment is often replied to with: "If you don't like it, don't watch it." The same applies here.Originally Posted by Duxxy
If he had to pay for the movie out of his own pocket, he wouldn't really be getting "free publicity."I think Mel Gibson is getting a whole lot of free publicity for a movie that no one really wanted made, he had to foot the bill himself.
The one thing that really baffles me is when messages with a liberal standpoint are considered "free speech," but it's a violation of "free speech" regarding anything presented from a religious standpoint. Aren't they both personal opinions? Hypocrisy anyone?
