Bush Eyes The Passion Of The Christ

American President GEORGE W BUSH plans to see MEL GIBSON's upcoming movie THE PASSION OF CHRIST - despite the furore surrounding the religious epic.

The movie, which tells the story of the crucifixion of JESUS CHRIST, has become highly controversial even before its opening, with some claiming it could spark anti-Semitism by suggesting Jewish people were responsible for Christ's death.

But the movie has captured Bush's interest. When asked if the politician wanted to see the drama, which opens in America on Wednesday (25FEB04), WHITE HOUSE press secretary SCOTT McCLELLAN said, "I think he does and I think at some point he probably will."
