'Passion of the Christ' Actor Jim Caviezel Is Pushing a False QAnon Conspiracy

Jim Caviezel is endorsing a false QAnon conspiracy theory that claims children are being tortured by rich people in order to harvest their adrenaline.

The 52-year-old The Passion of the Christ actor pushed the crazy and false theory during an appearance at a right-wing conference on Friday night (April 16) in Oklahoma.

The theory about “the adrenochroming of children” is the basis of QAnon’s #SaveTheChildren movement and people have pointed out how it’s basically the plot of the animated movie Monsters, Inc.

Jim was asked to explain the theory.

“Essentially, you have adrenaline in your body,” he said (via TheWrap). “And when you are scared, you produce adrenaline. If you’re an athlete, you get in the fourth quarter, you have adrenaline that comes out of you. If a child knows he’s going to die, his body will secrete this adrenaline. And they have a lot of terms that they use that he [Ballard] takes me through, but it’s the worst horror I’ve ever seen. The screaming alone, even if I never, ever, ever saw it, it’s beyond — and these people that do it, umm, there will be no mercy for them.”

There were reports a few years ago that a Passion of the Christ sequel was in the works.
