Quotes from the news wire:
I don't know how you can sit and not be upset that these two people, black, white, Mexican, it doesn't even matter, would be put in the back of a sheriff's deputy's car, somebody we are supposed to trust, they're put in the back of the car, they disappear, and they haven't been seen for 14 years. I don't know anyone who that would not move unless you have a heart of stone.
The television and film are going one way and getting darker and darker, and people are looking for the light, they are looking for God, they are looking for faith, they are looking for someone to uplift them and make them feel great. That’s why there is such a hunger for this kind of program and again I’m so proud to be a part of it.
We are going to see lots of music, which is my favorite, just raw music; everything is live and there is a band onstage. I think people are really going to appreciate the work that has been put into the music. It’s a story with a lot of love and a story we all know for so many years but it’s a cool twist and I feel like it’s going to be a refreshing twist. you can’t see all the people through the camera, you just know they are there; I’ll be okay. As long as I don’t crown the wrong Jesus, I will be okay.
The Passion is about love, inclusion and compassion for all mankind, it's for believers and also nonbelievers. It's for all faiths and all backgrounds. This story doesn't just belong to one group, it belongs to humanity. Love, forgiveness and compassion, those are things that are universal to us all.
