A Norwegian neo-Nazi who saw “The Passion of the Christ” confessed to attacking a left-wing youth group. Johnny Olsen, 41, surrendered to police for two bombings of a left-wing group’s headquarters in Oslo in 1994 and 1995 after seeing the controversial Mel Gibson movie, The Associated Press reported. He told a judge that “Jesus lives,” adding, “I distance myself from my past and neo- Nazism.”
