Part of the complaint about Mel Gibson's pending miniseries depicting a Dutchman hiding his Jewish girlfriend from the Nazis is that the movie will portray Catholicism in a positive light.
But doesn't everyone that puts forth a creative effort attempt to do this with their own respective viewpoint and worldview, even Jews?
If we are now permitted to make snide remarks about the religious backgrounds of those making movies, haven't Jews been allowed to produce more than their fair share?
Are similar criticisms going to be said about Spielberg's pending drama about the Munich incident at the 1972 Olympics and its aftermath?
While Jews bore the brunt of the evil during the time period to be depicted in Gibson's proposed film, I hate to break it to them, but they were not the only ones to suffer during that time or take heroic actions.
