Martin Scorsese making film on persecuted Christians
« on: May 22, 2015, 05:12:19 AM »

No! It's not on present-day persecution, rather on Japan 300 years ago. This guy is a wicked hypocrite. Remember the blasphemous, The Last Temptation of  Christ'

Quote
The award-winning American director Martin Scorsese has said he is working on a new film about the persecution of Christians in 17th century Japan.

Quote
Martin Scorsese has said he identifies with the issues covered in Silence, because he was brought up in a strong Catholic family.

Really? Seems to me he is using his significant abilities to bring to light something not covered alot when recounting the history of Japan. Alot of folks think glowingly of Tokugawa Ieyasu. This will perhaps give some perspective.

I think Nikos Kazantzakis who wrote the book was the real blasphemer TBH.
