Christian Bale says Moses was Barbaric and Schizophrenic

Christian Bale Calls Moses Barbaric and Schizophrenic Ahead of 'Exodus' Release

"I think the man was likely schizophrenic and was one of the most barbaric individuals that I ever read about in my life," Bale said about Moses in front of a group of international reporters last month at the Four Seasons hotel in Los Angeles.

Christianity Today was the first to report on the comments in a story published online Tuesday, and bloggers and others, many of whom had been cautiously enthusiastic about the movie, have been digesting them ever since.

Film critic Peter Chattaway at multi-faith website Patheos.com, for example, seems troubled because Bale “speculates about what was going on inside Moses’ head.” He’s also bothered because director Ridley Scott told Entertainment Weekly that it’s not Moses or God who will part the Red Sea, but that it will be caused by an earthquake.

Faith Driven Consumer, an organization that raised a stink just prior to the opening of Noah, also is disturbed by Bale's remarks, though founder Chris Stone has yet to pass them along to the group's followers, which he says numbers in millions via email lists and social media.

The group is also famous for organizing a campaign to keep Duck Dynasty on the air after star Phil Robertson made disparaging remarks about homosexuality, and now it has conducted a scientific poll about Exodus that the organization shared with Scott Free Prods. The poll indicated that 74 percent of Americans were likely to see the film if it was biblically accurate but that 68 percent were unlikely to see it if it was inaccurate.

“It’s our sincerest hope that this movie resonates with our community, so we sent them the results of our poll,” Stone said. “Their response was, ‘we don’t need to have any further conversation.’”

Fox declined comment for this report.

Just before Noah opened, Stone's group sent missives to Christians nationwide that the movie “appears to have replaced the Bible’s central point of God’s judgment on man’s inherent sin with a story focused on a contemporary environmental theme.” Because of the controversy that swirled around Noah, Stone said he was surprised to see that Bale called Moses “schizophrenic” and “barbaric" ahead of the film's opening on Dec. 12.

“There’s nothing in the biblical history that supports that,” he said. “It’s an indication that there will be a tremendous disconnect between Bale’s interpretation and the expectations of the market.”

Noah was made for $125 million and earned $352 million worldwide, but Stone says it left a lot of money on the table by insulting those who take the Bible seriously.

“Like we said with Noah, they’ve got the right to do whatever they want with their movie, but a lot of people just said, ‘That’s not my story,' and they stayed away,” Stone says. “We can see the same thing happening with Exodus.”

Another influential Christian writer, Brian Godawa, who leaked elements of the Noah script online before the movie was finished, also plans to weigh in on Bale’s comments at his blog, though he’s still crafting his response.

“It’s accurate to portray Moses as an imperfect hero, so Christians won’t take issue with that,” he said. “But to be so extreme as to call him one of the most barbaric people in history, that sounds like he’s going out of his way to distance himself from the very people you’d think he wants to appeal to.

I really have no way of knowing if Moses was a real historical figure, or just somebody the Jews made up to make themselves sound special. About two hundred and twenty years ago, Thomas Paine wrote the following in The Age of Reason:
... the character of Moses, as stated in the Bible, is the most horrid that can be imagined. If those accounts be true, he was the wretch that first began and carried on wars on the score or on the pretence of religion; and under that mask, or that infatuation, committed the most unexampled atrocities that are to be found in the history of any nation. Of which I will state only one instance:
When the Jewish army returned from one of their plundering and murdering excursions, the account goes on as follows (Numbers xxxi. 13): "And Moses, and Eleazar the priest, and all the princes of the congregation, went forth to meet them without the camp; and Moses was wroth with the officers of the host, with the captains over thousands, and captains over hundreds, which came from the battle; and Moses said unto them, 'Have ye saved all the women alive?' behold, these caused the children of Israel, through the counsel of Balaam, to commit trespass against the Lord in the matter of Peor, and there was a plague among the congregation of the Lord. Now therefore, 'kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known a man by lying with him; but all the women-children that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for Yourselves.'"
Among the detestable villains that in any period of the world have disgraced the name of man, it is impossible to find a greater than Moses, if this account be true. Here is an order to butcher the boys, to massacre the mothers, and debauch the daughters.

If the above story from Numbers 31 is true, and Moses was a real person, then he was probably the most detestable S.O.B to ever walk on this planet.

Whether a real person or not, Moses is just a accurate reflection of true "Jewish mentality"
of which is "barbaric" and "schizophrenic" and I might add that is most essentially literally
"malignantly narcissistic". The "Mosaic Distinction", that's within all of the so-called Jewish-
rooted "Abrahamic" religions, all do have those same "spiritual and mental" characteristics.

Yeah Schizophrenic and Barbaric are accurate descriptions for Jews in general.

Indeed. And the more and more that accurate description becomes "well-known"
all around the world the sooner that this finally will be the "Beginning of the End":
