    I totally agree with you on all counts. And add to that, he immediatley apologized for what he did and went into rehab. I know people who know Mr. Gibson personally, and they believe he is truly sorry for what he did and is working hard to avoid it ever happening again.

    He is in an ongoing treatment program. AA five days a week. And a three month out patient alcohol rehabilitation center.

    I don't feel as some of posters feel that this is going to be a "liberal" message film. As a matter of fact, if anything, I think it is going to be a "conservative" walk up call, warning about the impending doom to our culture. I remember when Gibson first talked about the film in a call to James Dobson, and said "Dr. I think you will like it". If he thinks that James Dobson would like it, it is a pretty good bet it will be conservative.

    What a silly thing to say-"he doesn't like Christians". Why because he makes a comment you don't like about President Bush's policies. First off, Mel Gibson is a commited/devoted Christian Catholic. Second off, Mel Gibson holds extremley conservative conservative views on many, many subjects. Anti-abortion, against stem-cell research, against gay marriage, he spoke up for Terri Schiavvo on that whole debate. As a matter of fact, he is probably MORE conservative than most people on this site. Because he is against Bush on a few policies, does not make him anti-Christian, or anti Bush. As far as you jaycee, your comment about Mel is nothing to me now, it brings to mind, Mel's first movie he directed, The Man Without A Face, and a line from it. You should see it. You quoted from it directly, with the line you wrote. It is actually kind of funny. A person is either up or down with you. There is no in between.

    I know that there are many parts to Mr. Gibson, which is more than you know about him.
    I also know that he produced, directed, and co-wrote one of the most beautiful movies on the Passion of Our Lord that has ever been created. For that I will always be grateful to him.
    And as I have stated on this thread several times, I know people who know Mr. Gibson personally, not in a superficial way as you know him through the media, and YOU don't know anything about him.

    This just goes to show, how much of the B.S. that Mel Gibson is taking right now, is still directed at what he did in The Passion.
    I understand that over the last two or three years, his name was dropped from all the charitable lists in Malibu and he was no longer invited to the charity events, and he was being shunned to a great extent, by Rob Reiner and his ilk. That is what being "liberal" in Hollywood means.

    I am a proud Dodgers fan also. Julie made personal attacks on me, and I am defending myself.
    Who I choose to defend is my own business. I don't agree with you about Mel Gibson-I am entitled to my opinion, as you are entitled to yours.
    I know many people who know Mel Gibson on a personal basis, and know him as a wonderful, kind, charitable, dedicated, devoted family man. As I told Julie, I could link to hundreds of stories here that would show Mel Gibson to be that man, but you have your mind made up, and you don't WANT to be enlightened any other way.
    Mel Gibson got drunk, said horrible things, apologized twice, immediatley went into rehab, and is seeking help. As I have said several times, lets see what he does with the rest of his life. I don't know what your religion tells you, but MY religion tells me, to give the guy a chance if he is seeking help and redemption.

    Do you know Julie if I thought it would enlighten you, I have tons, and tons of links I could attach here about Mel Gibson from friends, priests, ministers, reverends, family, colleagues who have spoken out about Mel in the last few weeks who have come out in his support of Mel, and told what kind of man he really. The kind of man they know him to be when he is sober. Charitable, honest, kind dedicated family man, the kind of man who has give millions upon millions to charity, but who doesn't want anybody to know about it, unlike most Hollywood stars. But because I know that you already have your mind totally made up, and don't want to be enlightened, I am NOT going to bother. You don't care to have your mind opened.
    And by the way, you are YOU can deny it all you want but you are obcessed with him. You can say you don't care about him, but if you didn't care about him, you wouldn't have spent all these hours posting about him.

    I will disagree with you on two points.

    Number 1. His views on the Holoacoast are hateful and dispicable. I totally agree with you. But from everything I have heard about him personally as a man and father, he is supposed to be very loving and kind. You can hold dispicable views, and still be loving to your children. I am not excusing the elder Gibson at all, personally I believe that he is a kook, but again from everything I ever heard of him, all of his family adored him.

    Number 2. I still say that Mel Gibson is being loyal to his father. Again, that is my opinion. Your opinion is different, and once again there is something with the Mel Gibson critics that will NOT be satisfied until he jams a knife into his Father's back. I wonder why that is???

    Arnold Schwarznegger's situation is very different. Mel is not a pol.
    Mel's father is alive not dead.
    Arnold despised his father, he has said so on numerous occassions. His father treated him terribly, even beating him, his brother and his mother.
    If Mel did what you said, it still wouldn't be enough for those of you who want to beat every last pulp out of him. Mel is loyal to his father. As Mel has stated about his father in that same Reader's Digest interview to Peggy Noonan, "My father was orphaned when he was two years old, he grew up poor, he fought in World War II, he came back and married my mother and had 10 children. He was always a good and loyal father.

    Personally, I respect Mel Gibson for not disrespecting his father publicly. You can say whatever you want, and what he COULD have said. I still don't think it would have been enough for you, or those like you.

    When I say ambushed, I mean that he didn't know that he was on the air. He is an old man. If you feel that is all right, to be calling the elderly parents of celebrities, and putting them on the air, then perhaps that says more about you than it does about Hutton Gibson or Mel Gibson. The man is almost 90 years old. Why don't they just leave him alone? There is absolutley no reason to even be interviewing him. Does anybody ever ask that question? People in the media like the controversey. And especially in the media who didn't like The Passion of The Christ. Just as Bill O'Reilly said at the time-people have known for 20 years that Hutton Gibson had some strange ideas, and nobody gave a damn. It was only when The Passion came out, that people started calling Hutton Gibson.

    Steve Feurestein is the radio broadcaster who called Hutton days before The Passion came out and ambushed him into talking to him. He didn't even know he was on the radio.
    Steve McEveety, one of Gibson's producers is who Hutton was tallking about with the "Vatican endorsement".

    Thank you for explaining to us what publicists do Veronica. We all needed you to do that. Alan Nierob is more than just Mel's publicist. He is his dear friend. Mel was present at Alan's son's bris, and Alan will be present at Alan will be present at Mel's daughter Hannah's wedding this fall.
    As I said earlier Alan's Jewish grandparents were murdered in World War II, and Mel is one of his closest friends. Alan is a very religious (all right you don't like the word devout) Jew.
