Why do I keep reading the Slate? Especially when I have to endure juicy tidbits like this from Christopher Hitchens, professional curmudgeon and pot-stirrer:
And it has been obvious for some time to the most meager intelligence that he is sick to his empty core with Jew-hatred. This is not just proved by his twistedly homoerotic spank-movie The Passion of the Christ, even though that ghastly production did focus obsessively on the one passage in the one of the four Gospels that tries to convict the Jewish people en masse of the hysterical charge of Christ-killing or "deicide."
Sigh. I tend to agree with Cosmos-Liturgy-Sex, and Hitchens' comments tend to corroborate that theory.
