It is a movie, and the people in the film are not actively being abused. They are acting out a drama to enable the audience to exercise a portion of its ego and call this exercise 'compassion.'"
So it is with Gibson's so-called Passion, defined as the "agony and suffering of Jesus during the Crucifixion."
Like Quentin Tarantino's 'Kill Bill,' Gibson could have called his religious horror movie 'Kill Jesus.' Watch him suffer. Watch him die. Buy the crucifixion nail pendant. The merchandising angle can't be beat. Does the Vatican get its usual percentage?
Gibson's model must have been Antonin Artaud, the French director credited with the so-called Theater of Cruelty. According to the Columbia Encyclopedia, Artaud "related theater to the plague because both destroy the veneer of civilization, revealing the ugly realities beneath and returning humanity to a primitive state, in which it lacks morality and reason. The aim of the 'theater of cruelty' was to disturb the audience and reveal the forces of nature. To achieve this end he emphasized the nonverbal aspects of theater such as color and movement and stressed the importance of violence as a theatrical device." Just like Mel's so-called Passion.
Another description of the concept -- "Artaud envisioned new forms of cinema and theater, as the Theater of Cruelty, where representation would be shattered and spoken language set aside in a convulsive, though carefully orchestrated act." Aramaic, anyone?
Like any horror flick, the Passion uses state of the art makeup and special effects to create a fetishistic violence that belies any "Christian" pretenses. Jesus's skin is endlessly flayed. His blood spurts. The scourging goes on forever. It really is the agony and the ecstasy -- especially if you like S&M. This movie is literally Sadism and Masochism for Christians.
The question remains -- is this movie another "theatrical mission" by the Jesuits? Mel Gibson has not publicized his connections with the sub rosa societies known as Opus Dei and the Jesuits.
"'The Passion' has all the earmarks of a Jesuit classical 'spiritual exercise,' in which the Jesuits subject the imagination of the supplicant with all the pain and suffering of the Christ," says Tupper Saussy, author of Rulers of Evil (www.tuppersaussy.com).
Designed by Ignatius Loyola, the founder of the Jesuits, 'The 'Spiritual Exercises,'" explains Saussy, was an intensive program of psychological indoctrination designed to align individual thought with papal authority."
How strong was this so-called "psychological indoctrination"? Jesuit obedience "alters the perception of reality according to the superiors' dictates," writes Saussy. 'Section 365.13 declares -- 'We must hold fast to the following principles: 'What seems to me white, I will believe black if the hierarchical Church so defines.' Francis Xavier would later describe this quality of submission in a vow that unintentionally summarized the Jesuit mission: 'I would not even believe in the Gospels were the Holy Church to forbid it.'"
In his book "Rulers of Evil," which details the sinister history of the Jesuits, Saussy writes, 'Embedded in the ratio studiorum [Jesuit educational process] were the elements of entertainment, of dramatic production - composition, rhetoric and eloquence. These courses interlinked with the Spiritual Exercises to intensify the experientiality of Catholic doctrine over Scripture and Protestantism. They resulted in a genre of spectacular plays that won distinction as 'Jesuit theatre.'"
Historically Jesuits have been known for their deceptions and political-religious conspiracies. In fact Webster's dictionary defines "Jesuitry" as "principles or practices ascribed to the Jesuits as the practice of mental reservation, casuistry and equivocation."
It should also be noted that President Bill Clinton was educated at the foremost Jesuit training center, Georgetown University. According to Saussy, Clinton's biographer David Maraniss said "the President owed his formidable skills as a criminal defendant to 'his training in casuistry at Georgetown University.'" Casuistry is equivocal to rationalization, "to cause something to seem reasonable, to provide plausible but untrue reasons for conduct."
Under the guidance of the Black Pope (the Jesuit Superior General), the first western translation of Sun Tzu's Art of War was published in 1772 as The Thirteen Articles Concerning Military Art. Saussy's position is that anyone knowing the Jesuit "mission," and knowing the nature of Jesuit obedience could observe world events which followed with an increased understanding of geo-political strategy.
Did "The Art of War," a military-political classic, become the de facto Jesuit handbook for conquering the world?
The Church Militant (the Roman Catholic Church) has been rocked by scandals of moral, ethical and spiritual depravity for two thousand years, yet it has remained seemingly impervious to judgment - even as sexual predators and pedophiles have been protected by Church hierarchy for generations. The material wealth of these spiritual predators has also risen beyond human calculation. The old Spanish proverb, "Don dinero, es muy catolico" says it all. So is Mel.
Tampering with Belief Systems (BS) is, of course, quite dangerous, and Mel Gibson does nothing but reinforce religious indoctrination. If 'The Passion of the Christ" is simply an exercise of S&M for Christians, watching a pretend Jesus suffering a pretended agony is about as twisted as you can get.
This brings up certain questions about Mel Gibson's agenda -- besides making a ton of money on foolish Gallatians, I mean, Christians.
Did Mel Gibson ever read Malachi Martin's roman a clef called Windswept House in which the Roman Catholic Church is formally dedicated to Satan in a ceremonial ritual? [An interview with the late Jesuit operative Malachi Martin is included in "Bushwhacked: Inside Stories of True Conspiracy" by Uri Dowbenko.]
Does Mel Gibson believe he will win converts for the Roman Church by showing the torture of Jesus by those he called "the synagogue of Satan"? (The synagogue of Satan is not to be confused with the synagogue of the Jews.)
And then even the mind control implications of the movie become undeniable. It should be noted that the Roman Catholic Church does not celebrate the victory of Christ in the Ascension. They do not show the apotheosis of Christ, rising into another dimension, into the clouds and out of sight. They chose to portray the suffering man hung on a cross, bleeding and broken, an icon of guilt and shame -- and a stark warning to anyone who would buck the Vaticans iron-fisted control of the spiritual evolution of humanity on Earth.
The crucifix -- an image of a tortured man, strung up on a cross, head hung down -- has become the most powerful symbol of religious and political mind control ever conceived by the dark forces that prey upon humanity.
The Vatican has outlawed and ignored the teachings of Christ on karma and reincarnation because it would reveal the origins of those who have hijacked the spiritual heritage of the the souls of Light on earth.
According to the New Testament, Jesus taught about the metaphysical reality of reincarnation, as in the parable of the man who was blind from birth. The disciples asked him - was it the blind mans sin or was it the sin of his parents that he was born without vision? This was an implicit understanding of the principles of karma and reincarnation. In other words, whose karma was it that the man was blind? Jesus replied that it was neither. The man chose to be blind from birth in order for Jesus to heal him to the glory of God, when they would meet later in that time and space.
Instead the Roman Church is focused on the horror story. Lifetime after lifetime, the agony and suffering of the crucifiction has been used to indoctrinate people into believing the lie that we are sinners -- and not Sons and Daughters of God.
This attack on the spirituality of men and women is unceasing, as they are born again and again into the spiritual bondage of the Roman Church -- and other pretenders of Christianity (or Churchianity).
Of course, Mel Gibson has drawn the line. He's not playing Jesus in 'The Passion of the Christ." He's just directing the Crucifixion. What does that tell you?
At any rate "The Passion"is a Jesuitical masterpiece. By definition, this movie is cunning, deceitful and prevaricating.
That's why you don't have to see it.
