Another day, another offensive Gibson rant ... this time not by Mel, though!
Mel Gibson’s controversial father, Hutton Gibson, told Liberty News Radio that "half the Vatican" is gay and that Pope Benedict XVI is a homosexual too.
Asked by Radar Online to confirm those remarks, the elder Gibson, 91, did so and then some, saying: “That is correct – I stand by my statements."
“The Vatican is full of all these child molesters, that is all there is to it.”
Hutton Gibson shocked listeners on the Political Cesspool Radio Program with his take on why the Catholic Church has failed to tackle homosexuality.
He calls Pope Benedict was “a homosexual” and “a slippery character” involved in a Masonic conspiracy out to destroy the Catholic Church from within.
Hutton Gibson is not a huge fan of the Pope.
Mel Gibson’s father attends his alternative Catholic Church in Malibu and has so far not spoken about the actor’s alleged abuse of Oksana Grigorieva.
This is a rant that gives Mel a run for his money, though.
The outspoken critic of the Catholic Church questioned in a 2003 interview how Nazis had disposed of six million bodies during the Holocaust, and claimed that the September 11, 2001, attacks were perpetrated by remote control.
Now, Hutton Gibson claims the Catholic Church isn’t fighting the repeal of Proposition 8 “because half of the people there in the Vatican are queer."
"They have not handled the horrible situation in the church. In fact they have fostered it because as I say they are trying to destroy the church.”
Asked if he thinks the Pope is gay, Hutton replied, “I certainly do. Why else would he put up with this? He was in charge of stamping it out."
