‘Passion’ Sells 4.1M Copies in One Day

LOS ANGELES – The second coming of Mel Gibson (news)’s biblical epic “The Passion of the Christ” sold 4.1 million DVD copies by Wednesday after only one day in stores.

While the figure from distributor Fox Home Entertainment is high, it’s not quite a record breaker.

“Finding Nemo” holds the No. 1 overall spot for one-day DVD sales with about 8 million. For a live-action movie, “Spider-Man” holds the one-day record with 7 million.

I suppose it’s a sign we aren’t all crazy.

    “We hear that zealotry is good for home video sales.”

    “Good, but make a ‘regular’ edition and a ‘crucifer’ edition.”

    The Crucifer Special Edition contains:

    Miniature Jesus on the cross action figure with screaming and wailing voice action!
    Fold out crown of thorns with very sharp edges – bleed just like Jesus!
    Evil Jew holding chains figurine – act out parts of the Bible that aren’t in it!

    But wait, if you act now you could possibly grab one out of one million Extra Deluxe Special Editions of The Passion with:

    · A Passion T-Shirt – Show your devotion!
    · A Passion smock smeared with fake blood just like in the movie
    · Blood sandals
    · An inflatable, livesize cross

    Remember, if you are all Jesus for Halloween, we can do the same thing we did to every other Pagan holiday and turn it into celebration of our Lord!

    A Christian Halloween? (shudders) Ghosts -> Holy Spirit. Zombies -> Lazarus. Witches -> Mary Magdalene. Kids going door to door getting blessings and cherry-flavoured Jesus suckers.

    Hey, folks, halloween is a Christian holiday. The name stands for All Hallow’s Even and All Hallows is Nov. 1 In today’s world it’s called All Saints Day for those religions which use it. The night before was the day when the damned roamed the surface to turn those saints still living.

    “cherry-flavoured Jesus suckers”

    Now *THERE’S* a name for a punk band.

    Chuck I agree with you while I stridently disagree. All-Hallows eve is the Christian name for the harvest festival and celtic night of fear, the festival of Samhain (pronounced Sowahn). It’s spin, and little more. I think you know that, and I’d be willing to bet that most people who will read this know that as well.

    Yeah, Wulfgar, and I think it used to get kind of bloody, but maybe that was midsummer. But I date back to the big fight we had one time ithe school board (all right it was a little fight) in Billings about Halloween. You can’t believe the number of sane-looking folks who came out to speak up for the reality of witches, the devil, evil spirits, etc.
