For all the controversy over gay marriage, abortion and the death penalty, few acts are as antithetical to the teachings of the Catholicism as divorce.
(To say nothing of cheating on your wife with a young Russian pop singer.)
Therefore, all eyes were on Mel Gibson yesterday as he attended Church of the Holy Family in Malibu.
The actor had spent the prior week in Costa Rica, following news of his pending divorce and rumors of an affair with Oksana Grigorieva. How did the congregation treat its most famous member? Very well, reportedly.
"He was drinking coffee with church guests and seemed very relaxed," a witness told People about Gibson, who socialized with friends for an hour after Mass.
Considering his upcoming divorce, would you welcome Gibson back to your church?
