Poor Mel Gibson’s life isn’t difficult enough. After all that he is done to himself lately, I am sure that Mel wants nothing more than to crawl under a rock down under and NOT have his name in the paper for any reason.
Well Mel’s father, Hutton Gibson, is not on the same page with his son. Mel’s Dad just called the Pope gay and said half of the Vatican is queer. Thanks Dad!
New York (ANI): Mel Gibson’s father, Hutton Gibson, has called Pope Benedict XVI a homosexual. Hutton, 91, called Pope Benedict XVI a homosexual during a radio interview, according to TMZ. In the interview, the host asked Gibson if the Catholic Church has become “politicised” to the point that it cannot address issues like homosexuality.
Gibson responded that the Church would not address homosexuality because “half of the people there in the Vatican are queer.” When asked if he thinks that the current Pope is among those homosexuals, Gibson said: “I certainly do,” reports the New York Post.
Gibson also called the Pope “a slippery character” and claimed he is part of a conspiracy to destroy the Catholic Church. Hutton Gibson has advanced several conspiracy theories related to the Catholic Church, the Holocaust and the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, including the idea that the Church’s opening of the Second Vatican Council in 1962 was an attempt by Jews and Freemasons to take over the Church.
Seriously Dad. You’re not helping.
So in Mel’s defense, perhaps crazy is something that runs in the family.

Look, I have heard that Gibson Sr. was a fruitcake before now, I'm sure that Mel's "the Jews cause all the wars" comment comes from the old man. BUT that having been said, the Catholic Church's long time protection and or inaction on its own pedophiles both homo and hetero leaves a lot of questions unanswered.
As far as "Ratso" Rastinger being “a slippery character” and part of a "conspiracy," never forget that before John Paul passed away, "Ratso" used his position as Prefect of the Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, (formerly known as the "Inquisition"), he used that position to ram through drastic changes in the rules and manner that future popes would be chosen.
Under Ratso's "new" rules, John Paul II would NEVER have been elected pope and under the "old" rules, "Ratso" would NEVER have been elected pope. Something to think about……
