"Medved devotes considerable space in his book to the religious right, and especially to his spirited public defense of Mel Gibson's Passion of the Christ... When asked by fellow Jews, 'How can you work with people who sincerely believe you're going straight to hell?' his reply is simple: 'It's not a problem for me because I'm confident that they're wrong.'"
His reply is simple, all right, and that Stein cites it approvingly is proof of how religious piety is turning even the review pages to mush.
Indeed, one wonders whether Medved would justify working with those of his fellow travelers who sincerely believe that Jews drink the blood of newborn babies by saying "It's not a problem for me because I'm confident that they're wrong."
