Many wrongly assume that Mel Gibson is Roman Catholic. He is not. He is Old Catholic. Actually, the Old Catholics were a group that left the Catholic Church after the 1st Vatican Council and its proclamation on Papal Infallibility. Gibson belongs to the Traditionalist Movement, a group within Catholicism that wants the Church's liturgy to be restored to it's pre Vatican II state, and also rejects the ecumenism of the modern Papacies(but not the Papacy itself).
To: Clintons a commie
and also rejects the ecumenism of the modern Papacies(but not the Papacy itself).
According to Tim Staples on Catholic Answers yesterday, a friend of his talked directly to Mel Gibson, and he said that Mr. Gibson is definitely a sedevacantist.
So, he may not reject the papacy as an institution, but he rejects the current Pope.
