As Mel Gibson's "The Passion" crossed the $200 million box office mark this weekend, the savage violence continued unabated. As predicted by the intelligentsia, synagogues were burned and looted, and Jews were dragged out of their cars and beaten by frenzied moviegoers as they pillaged the countryside looking for someone--anyone--to seek revenge on for the death of Christ.

We can only hope that the film fades away soon, and the inevitable onslaught of violence and carnage it has brought with it. Soon, we will begin the hard work of rebuilding our shattered society, a society in which no person of any ethnic group will ever be forced to suffer the way they have the past ten days in this darkest period of our nation's history.
