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.

Why so he can also be witness to mass ignorance?

The man needs his meds adjusted.

About five years ago, I read a couple of Hutton's books. The poor man was utterly incoherant. As for his latest utterance, I hope for his sake, he senile. I'd hate to think he said that fully understanding what he said was slander.

I agree with Subvet…Or his diaper changed, I think he's full of it…
*sigh* Prayers on the way!

This would probably qualify as calumny…pretty serious stuff. Launched at the Pope, more serious stuff.
I guess we know why Mel is so messed up.
Sorry for that, I love some of his movies…

I've spoken to some of these sedevacante types. I cannot think of ONE of them who was not loopier than a loon. If you found a fringe organization based on ilogic, then that's exactly the type of person you will attract; ilogical, irrational and in many cases certifiably crazy. What is truly sad is that he is given the time of day– even by a pseudo news-rag like TMZ.

It's about time for him to show up, actually. He hasn't gotten any attention since shortly after the Passion film came out over six years ago.

Stupid old man. Its not like the Vatican has ever put up with rampant homosexuality in the clergy, covered up for pedophiles, or promoted those who do. So let's all call him crazy, comment on his "diapers," and joke about putting him on medication, in the true spirit of Christian charity.
Stupid old man.

Hey, Blackrep, do you have some hidden evidence that the pope is homosexual? That there are homosexuals in the Vatican, I could probably give you that one, but I don't actually know of one I could name. Any evidence? Yes, you are right, stupid old man.

Anonymous – lame.
FYI, for anyone who scratches their heads at WHY the Pope wears red shoes, like MOST things that seem out of place at first glance, this actually has it's origins in ancient Christian iconography. Red Shoes are a symbol of "legitmate authority" which as per the letters of St Paul comes only from God.
Incidentlally, as a point of trivia/church history "red-shoes" may have been a factor in the sack of Constantinople. After the schism between Rome and Constantinople in 1054, Constaninople/the Easter Church no longer recognized the authority of the West, although they continued trading. The Latin church of Venice commissioned the Pala d'Oro from Constantinople, and all the figures representing authority were portrayed with red-shoes–except the Latin Patriarch at the time. Of course, they were added by Venetian artisans later, but this infuriated the Venetians, at the time a vassal-state of Constantinople. And of course, they were the chief architects of the sack of Constantinople some 100 years later.

Poor Gibson Maior. He missed his true vocation as the loudmouthed, opinionated old gas-bag down at the cafe' who drinks repeatedly refills of coffee and doesn't tip the waitress.

Mack – who says he doesn't do both?

Don't you people KNOW red shoes are a symbol of "legitmate authority" which as per the letters of St Paul comes only from God, therefore it must be true. That's what the bible says so it's TRUE! Don't ever question what the bible says. Therefore, even if the Pope and many people in the Vatican appear gay, it's only tradition and they are not truly gay, per say. At least not 100% of them.
And no matter what Gibson father say's we are not a Cult. Cults eat bodies and drink blood, we are civilize people!

Yes, Msgr. Gänswein is a very good-looking man. He is also, from what I hear, intelligent, athletic, and pious. But, I don't know how that means anything beyond (1) some people have great genes, (2) some people have had great upbringing, (3) Pope Benedict has a great eye for people, (4) Pope Benedict is lucky, (5) God is indeed good.
Here is one of the best pictures of the pope and his secretary, by the way.

Early Razor, irony should be subtle and useful; sarcasm is almost always inappropriate and often incomprehensible.
