Jim Caviezel, the actor who played Jesus Christ in Mel Gibson’s “The Passion of the Christ,” recently declared that bigotry towards Christians is the “most accepted form of bigotry in the world.”
Caviezel, whose new film “Sound of Freedom” comes out on July 4th, made his comments during an interview on Christian podcast “Prophets and Patriots” on Tuesday.
The actor and Catholic said his upcoming film – produced by Christian filmmakers and based on the true story of a government agent rescuing two children from child traffickers in South America – is a “rejection of what they are doing to our Christian culture right now.”
“You want to put a rainbow flag on Mickey Mouse? That’s fine. I never asked them to put a Star of David, or a Crucifix, or a cross on Mickey’s ears. Why are you doing that? Why are you putting the rainbow flag above the President of the United States? Above the United States flag? Absolutely appalling,” Caviezel said.
He continued, slamming the culture promoting these notions as “inconceivable.”
“And for you to make a mockery of my Lord Jesus Christ, it’s, uh –” he said, trailing off in frustration. Though the actor didn’t mention what he was referring to specifically, he may have had the L.A. Dodger’s an LGBT group that mocks Catholics.
Later in the interview, Caviezel launched a scathing attack against the far left in America, accusing it of wanting to destroy America and Christianity along with it.
He stated, “This is our Nazis, these are our communists, these are our left that we have to fight, and they want to take down our republic. They are going to take your faith. They are going to take your First Romans.”
