So…I’ve received numerous emails, texts, and complicated smoke signals asking what this interview was all about.
First, let me assure you that I’m not consulted by the Harvest organization when they are planning the event… thus, all I have is my jaded opinion to offer.
Evangelicals love celebrities and have always lusted after the approval of the famous.
I consider this a small step up from the days when the most prominent Christian celebrities were Pat Boone and the captain of the Love Boat.
Boone made his place in the world sanitizing great rock and roll songs into whitened mush, (though he failed to hit in later years with a remake of “Smoke On the Water”).
There is a God.
Gibson made his mark with a heavily “Catholicized” version of the crucifixion.
He’s famous for that…and for a host of unsavory actions and attitudes that I will not chronicle.
That explains it to me.
Make your own application…
