Motion Picture Academy calls grassroots Passion petitioners "Zealots"

Passion for Fairness is the home of a petition that was designed to get the attention of the members of the Motion Picture Academy (AMPAS) and to get them to consider Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ in their Oscar nomination process.

Patrick Hynes from AnkleBitingPundits.com received a particularly nasty reply from one Stephen Norris representing the Academy though.

I am utterly delighted that our Academy of Motion Picture Art and Sciences has chosen not to yeild to the Bullying of you Christian Zealots to award this mediocre film just because it deals with your particular religious beliefs.
Rather snippy, ain't he?

Perhaps Stephen would like to deal with his own zealous beliefs, as opposed to condemning others.
