(NEWSBUSTERS) — In the latest example of “Please just shut up and act,” actor Christian Bale, star of Ridley Scott’s upcoming Biblical epic “Exodus: Gods and Kings,” has equated Moses with modern day terrorists.

“[He was] absolutely seen as a freedom fighter for the Hebrews, but a terrorist in terms of the Egyptian empire.”

Bale continued, “What would happen to Moses if he arrived today?” “Drones would be sent out after him, right?”

Bale made these remarks on ABC’s Nightline, in a yet-to-be-aired episode. In previous interviews, Bale has called Moses ‘schizophrenic and barbaric’ and ‘troubled and tumultuous.”
