I know I should pray for this man’s recovery, but frankly I have more important things to do.

Funny, I’m as right wing as can possibly be, 500 times more to the right than Mel, and I’m a Catholic. Yet I support Israel and I don’t beat women; or have a problem being a stumbling dunkard.

Beliefs belong in church.

What more is there to say?

Mel Gibson practices his own bizarre form of Catholicism. This fact negates any feeble case that Hitchens is attempting to make.

Yeah Hitchens and Ted Kaczynski’s tirades are the norm for the left. What a sorry excuse for a hatefilled screed.

Well, you know this is at least a part of why this story is getting so much coverage, when things like Acorn and the black panthers stories aren’t. One fits the agenda and one doesn’t.

(Not defending mel’s behavior at all, it was absolutely disgusting).

Dear Hitch;

For real, full-on, unadulterated violence and hatred, you might do better looking at pagan National Socialism and atheistic International Communism ...

But that might be too close to home.

My dear Catholic friends, please ignore Hitchens, a man whose hatred does not allow him to become kinder even at the time of his peril, when putting the pen down would suffice.

Mel Gibson is a scumbag, but that is his choice; it has nothing to do with his Catholicism. These dishonest people just use this pretense to vent their hatred of religion --- all religion.

Christopher Hitchens can always be counted on the bash the Church for some reason, or the other.

Mel Gibson's problems were created because he chose to REJECT the teachings of Jesus and His Church, instead of follow them.

When I’m looking for an authority on the church, I always go with drunk atheists like Christopher Hitchens.

Mel is just a draft dodger from Peekskill, New York. The old man took the family to the Antipodes to keep them out of Vietnam. It worked. New Zealand and then Australia for Mel.

Understand he's headed back out of town. If he needs to hide out, lemme suggest a return to Peekskill, Nothing ever happens there (or at least since Aaron Burr died) and fewer media people can find it than can find Australia.

BTW, that russki bimbo may look OK at night, but in full sunlight? Mel, it could be an eye problem. I hope the kid is being raised as a Catholic, preferably in an Irish orphanage and laundry, where they understand these things..

Gibsons failings are because he's human and makes incorrect choices. He'll have to deal with it and the consequences.

And then there's this tidbit. Or two.
