      Sorry to post again today on the same subject, but WorldNetDaily has just
      reported:

      Amid criticism from Jewish groups, Mel Gibson has removed a controversial
      scene from his film "The Passion of the Christ."

      In the section, the Jewish high priest Caiaphas says of Jesus as he is about
      to be crucified, "His blood be on us and on our children."

      The scene will not be in the movie's final version, according to a Gibson
      associate who spoke to the New York Times on condition of anonymity.

      "It didn't work in the focus screenings," the associate told the Times.
      "Maybe it was thought to be too hurtful, or taken not in the way it was
      intended. It has been used terribly over the years."

      The scene has been included in a number of versions of the film Gibson has
      shown to carefully selected groups, including ministers.
