BBC Movie Revises Easter Story
The BBC, which has already admitted a bias against Christians (see our 2008 Annual Issue of MOVIEGUIDE®), recently televised a four-part Easter drama that exonerated Judas, Pontius Pilate and the Jewish religious leaders who helped put Jesus Christ to death.
“The priests have just become bad men in big hats,” Producer Nigel Stafford-Clark said. “That is so unfair.”
“I have always had a soft spot for Judas,” writer Frank Deasy said. “I wanted him to be forgiven.”
“We are not seeking to subvert or rewrite the Gospel narrative,” the BBC said. “We are just retelling it to bring it alive for a contemporary audience.”
Maybe next Passover, the BBC can televise a movie making Adolf Hitler and the Holocaust look good.
