The Passion attracts the Mark of the Beast

This is too funny.

From Georgia of course.
'Passion' Ticket Numbers Spur Complaints
Theater Owner Says 666 on Tickets a 'Coincidence'

POSTED: 6:03 am EST March 1, 2004

ROME -- The number 666, which Christians recognize as the "mark of the beast," is appearing on tickets for "The Passion of the Christ" at a Georgia movie theater, drawing complaints from some moviegoers.

The machine that prints tickets assigned the number 666 as a prefix on all the tickets for the Mel Gibson film, said Gary Smith, owner of the Movies at Berry Square in northwest Georgia. The 666 begins a series of numbers that is listed below the name of the movie, and the date, time and price of the showing.

"It's from our computer and it's absolutely a coincidence," Smith said. "It has nothing to do with the film company or any vendor. It's completely in our computer."

In the Bible, the book of Revelation says 666 is the "number of the beast," usually interpreted as Satan or the Antichrist.

Several patrons have made comments about the numbers, and one person who was uncomfortable having 666 on her ticket asked for a pass to be substituted for a ticket.

"A lot of people have asked what the numbers mean, some said it seemed odd, some said it was inappropriate," said theater employee Erica Diaz.

The movie, which opened Wednesday, is a bloody depiction of Christ's final hours and crucifixion.

They did. In fact, most of Revelations was figured out to be a political attack on Romans in general. However, as with any vague apocalyptic book, people are always seeing the signs of imminent destruction all around them. Many people are pointing to the European Union as "The dragon with seven heads."

Now, I'm off to watch The Omen III. Goodbye.
