I'm not Catholic, but my roots are Irish Cathloic, as are my husband's. During family get togethers, my Catholic relations frequently express anger over the Vatican II changes. I have to think this must be a common opinion among mainline Catholics.
It is not common among mainline Catholics to reject Vatican II. Those who do reject it likely number less than 5% of active Catholics.

Maybe Gibson is just rejecting the concept of covering up for a bunch of homosexual priests molesting kids, and decided to set up his own church and not allow that.

Your statistic is nuts. Millions of Catholics rejected Vatican II by voting with their feet and walking out of the Church altogether.
And of course, as everyone knows, the truth is determined by the majority and statistics!!!
