Mel Gibson Calls Out “Sickness” Afflicting Catholic Church, Left-Wing Bishops

Australian actor and filmmaker Mel Gibson called out the hierarchy of the Catholic Church for what he identified as a “sickness” among senior bishops and Church leaders, pointing to an epidemic of “cancelled priests” blackballed by bishops for teaching Catholic orthodoxy.

Gibson was speaking to a group of traditionally-minded priests and Catholics meeting under the banner of “Coalition for Canceled Priests” in Chicago.

Gibson also revealed that members of the USCCB (US Conference of Catholic Bishops) declined to consult with him on his movie The Passion of the Christ, which went on to become the most popular Christian movie of all time.

I went to the USCCB to get support for the film. And those men couldn’t get away from me fast enough. And all but a few of them turned their backs on me. It was pretty telling about who they were.”

Gibson is one of few figures known in mainstream film for practicing the Catholic religion.

Gibson endorsed the views of dissident Catholic archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò on the Second Vatican Council, suggesting that the council which replaced the traditional Latin mass with liturgy in the vernacular could be replaced or done away with entirely. He questioned Pope Francis’ leadership of the Church, alluding to an incident in which the Vatican placed an idol of a Mesoamerican deity in the Vatican gardens.

Archbishop Viganò has emerged as a leading critic of Pope Francis, having accused the Pope of declining to fire or punish now-disgraced Cardinal Theodore McCarrick after learning of allegations of sexual assault against the American cleric. McCarrick has since been criminally charged and stripped of his church office as a result of sexual abuse claims.
