Ron,

        I doubt he will donate to the Roman Catholic Church, he's a member of
another splinter church whose belief is in the old RC beliefs.  He still
attends Mass in Latin.  Maybe that's why he had Jesus and Pilate speaking in
Latin.

Peace and all good,

John A.E., n/OEF

 The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the
source of all art and science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who
can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead; his
eyes are closed.      --Einstein (1879-1955)

John:

Thanks for sharing your assessment.  I think it would make me
want to give up religion as well.

But others disagree. I just heard opening weekend was the biggest
of all time: $150 Million-plus in gross receipts over two days.

Perhaps he'll donate so much money to the Catholic Church it will
be able to keep all those priests from going  jail.
