That's exactly what I heard. And since the fact that it was cut is was a sensationalized news story, how could the author of the posted article not know that?
Besides, it's not like Vatican II actually purged the verse from the bible and the historical record... if he hadn't cut it, it wouldn't mean he was being unfaithful to V2, as was implied.

I don't see, from rereading the article, that the author states that Gibson includes the line in the film. What he says is "The recent controversy over the forthcoming release of Mel Gibson's The Passion has reignited the longstanding debate over responsibility for the crucifixion of Jesus." This seems true enough to me. The comment about the line from the gospel is made in reference to the gospel account, not to Gibson's film.
