Foxman blessed the film as an “antidote” to Mel Gibson’s Jewishly troubling “Passion of the Christ,” according to The Wrap, which covers Hollywood.

Last Thursday, a 5-year-old British girl, April Jones, who had been raped and murdered, was buried in London after her funeral was televised nationally. She and another young girl were victims of men apparently addicted to online pornography.
