No, I am not a shrink. It is MY opinion, just like you have opinion.
Of course what Hutton Gibson said was ridiculous, wrong, and terrible. And I don't know "any circles" where they were applauded".
And one final time I will say it-it ALL comes down to this-the only thing some of care about is that Mel denounce his father. For some reason that sticks in your craw. If he his disloyal to his Dad, sticks a knife in his father, than everything will be all right.
I presumed you had some basis for offering a diagnosis of senility. In the absence of some credentials, I'll go with Mel, who knows his dad, and states that he not only has all his faculties, but that he has a factual basis for his aberrant opinions.
No, I couldn't care less what Mel says about his dad.
Hutton is a despicable, hateful man.
My opinion, your's may differ.
I do care about Hutton's opinions. Particularly when they get international media attention.
If Mel says nothing, that's his business.
If Mel openly supports pop's opinions as honest or fact based, he's equally deserving of criticism.
"Loyalty" has nothing to do with it.
Perhaps you were thinking of honesty.
So, if Hitler were your father, you would not denounce his terrible beliefs and practices?
