This is completely false.

You assuming that he set out to do things that he didn't actually set out to do and assuming some pretty awful things about "conservatives" (talk about generalizing!).

And do you really think it would have been a good idea to make every "evil" character completely horrific to the point where they lose their humanity? No. Not from a movie point of view, not from a story point of view, etc. It's almost like you're saying that Cameron failed because he didn't slap anyone who disagreed with him across the face hard enough for them to finally agree with him. As if that's going to "convert" them anyway?

This is nonsense. JC set out to tell a story and let people draw parallels however they saw fit. He succeed.
