    There has been huge publicity for it. I doubt that it will have the same box office success in the UK as we are much less religious than the USA.

    So does it mean I must believe in something before I'm involved in western society?

    I thought passion is love. Am I wrong? 5555.

    Passion is love and love often involves a spot of hardship.

    No, you don't have to believe in anything in particular. You don't have to be anything in particular. You can do what you want.

    Yes, you are wrong. Passion is any strong feeling. If you are talking about the passion of the Christ, however, it refers to suffering.

    (Say: "I thought passion was love.")

    Great. One thing I like is it lists words that are not derived from the stems even though they appear to be so derived. :wink:
