Then I stand corrected, the movie offended the heresy that most Christians
believed, and thus, it was doing exactly what a business man would not
really want to do-offend your paying customers.

It's inaccurate to describe "The Last Temptation of Christ" as simply
"berating Christians." There were certainly things wrong with the film - &
with the novel it's based on - but the central theme, which was the fact
that Christ could be tempted & especially what his "last temptation" was,
were profoundly correct. The negative reaction of many Christians to the
movie betrayed a docetic christology.

But no one answered my question. If history was skewed by a TV production of
the Crusades so that Christianity itself was presented unfavorably in
contrast to other religions, who benefits? Why would that happen? TV
productions are not supposed to alienate the religious majority. They are
supposed to attract the majority of viewers to their channel/time slot.

GRM: I will, Look at Hollywood who continues to make financial flop after
financial flop berating the Christian.
