A new Mel Gibson-directed film intends to depict Jesus Christ as a drunken, violent sexist with a propensity for using four-letter cuss words.
Gibson says the movie will demonstrate that even Jesus had a few character flaws, and we all-myself included-make Jesus-like mistakes.
"If God's son is imperfect, what can you expect from me," the actor-director said.
Gibson's racist, sexist and violent and rants, and allegations he beat up an ex-girlfriend have at least temporarily sullied Gibson's Hollywood career.
"I think this new Jesus picture will help resurrect my reputation," Mel stated. "When people learn he hated women so much he never had sex with them before dying at 32, when they learn that he guzzled two goatskin bladders full of wine a day, and they discover he invented the Hebrew swear word for f***, maybe they'll be kinder to me."
