I was impressed with how beautiful and poised his girlfriend was. Her speaking voice is lovely.The first thing I thought of was a post you wrote a long time ago where you simply said... Mel has issues and I thought Huh?
I think it is a question of diabolical possession.The demon in the girl is mocking him with serenity, the thing it has taken from Mr. Gibson, amongst others.How about saying the full Saint Michael Prayer in Novena form for Mr. Gibson?*
Wow that's creepy! Creepy from both people. (She sounded so calm and enchanting when she spoke with Mel)either way .... God bless that baby, and keep her safe!
I will pray and have been praying for him and his family. Our sins effect so many , many people.
He did sound a bit like a demoniac, didn't he? "WHAT?!?!?" lol...But seriously, he's just another human being capable of doing despicable things just like the rest of us. And I'm not too convinced that the girl friend is all that innocent as she plays to be on the tape, either. "I don't give a damn if you don't spend another penny on me!" heh, yeah right, until you take him to court for child support... Whatever the case, prayers for him and for those involved. DC
I beg Jesus that my salvation isn't judged or dependent upon my worst day or my worst behavior. I hope I'm judged by the entirety of my life - and not by a sound bite. *****Mel has done some great things too. It's the "whole package" that I hope God considers. Normally hollywoodians hide their worst side and I feel so sorry for them when they're outed.(Even when they're totally screwed up and at fault.) Everyone has a breaking point...everyone. I hope the public doesn't feel all high and mighty and superior 'cause really we are no better, perhaps we're nasty in different ways but certainly just as sinful. I have so much compassion for mentally ill people. There by Gods grace go I. (Unless I'm already crazy and I'm the last one to know.. It's possible.)
There is an unseen spiritual warfare out there. Who would Satan like to go after but any one that trys to be HOLY. Pray for Mel and others like him in this world that are being attacked. They can seem as though they are mentally ill and can be driven crazy by the demonic. St. Michael the archangel defend us in battle!Robin
Poor Mel..there will always be a soft spot in my heart for him...along with Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, Val Kilmer, Pierce Brosnan....Terry--thanks for your kind words :)Dinner tonight is chicken kebabs, fresh corn on the cob (both done on grill), carrot-pineapple slaw (my grandma's recipe), and fresh watermelon.. kebabs were made last night and have been marinading today.Plus an ice-cold Corona....it is almost 95 degrees on my patio :)Sara
Sara, I'm going to go and get a bowl of cold cereal now and pretend it's roasted grilled corn with drizzled butter and tender chicken seasoned just right with a creamy honey mustard sauce... and for dessert -even though it's not the weekend an icy sweet rootbeer float. Gosh, that's about as close to porn as I've ever written. ;)I'm just kidding.I wonder if I should delete that.
Belinda--hehehe :) Don't delete--I thought it was a riot :) P.S. Two of the kebabs will be for lunch tomorrow..cook once eat twice :)Terry-- here's some artistic competition for ya.. :)http://www.ksl.com/?nid=148&sid=11572857&hl=6Sara
Poor Mel. He hates himself and this homewrecking Oksana for their very public sins. But for God's sake, it does not justify assault/knocking her teeth out. He should go to a desert somewhere and live out the rest of his life in penance. May God help him and his children.PS Didn't he realize that the devil would really be after him for The Passion of the Christ? How on earth did he ever let down his guard in his spiritual battle, to begin with? Once he fell, it was a quick downhill tumble into one mortal sin after another. Satan is gloating over all of this. We need to pray for him, hard.
Is Gibson that much different from most men other than the fact that he has a large number of enemies in the media and in Hollywood?Husbands abusing verbally/physically wives/partners is incredibly common these days. Blasphemy and profanity was just sanctioned by one of the Courts of Appeals in this country and I have no doubt but that that arbitrary decision will be sustained.I could give you the names of a dozen guys I have met who would think Mel to be a role model for dissing his playmate. Fortunately, I would have to dredge them up from the days when I lived as a pagan.
From Orthometer:Please pray for the soul of Sr. Mary Joseph Wipperman, OCD of the Carmel of the Immaculate Heart of Mary in Holladay, Utah. Sister was the extern and a convert from Mormonism. She passed away last night. She was such a delight!! Always had a smile and a hug and a wonderful sense of humor. And she sure could make her motorized wheel chair GO!!St Teresa of Avila and St John of the Cross--welcome home your daughter..Sara
"(Don't listen to the tapes.)"Too late.I don't know what to think anymore about this guy, but extreme disappointment would be a start.
Whatever - the guy has issues. Look at his dad and his trad church. History is filled with artists with issues - look at Caravaggio. Gibson is a jerk.
Sara - your link doesn't work.
There were many at the crucifixion that thought Christ got what He had coming to Him.All pain and suffering comes from Original Sin. Sin was brought to the world by Satan, and hand delivered to man in the hands of woman.Don't kick Christ as He lays suffering because of our sins.Kicking someone who is down is not manly.It is going to surprise you one day when Christ shows you why someone suffered. And you will be punished for your attitude towards them.Let's pray for Mr. Gibson. Offer penances on his behalf.In August, I am going to say the Pope Leo XIII Saint Michael prayer on his behalf.As a boy growing up, the Priests I knew remarked that many who believe in Christ will not really like Him when they do meet Him. He will not live up to their expectations.*
Terry--try copying link and pasting in your browser..I just did that now and it worked...Sara
I heard another one of his rants on the radio this morning and I feel bad about trying to cut him some slack for having a horrible PMS kinda moment. There is no excuse for this kind of behavior. None.He just pi**ed his career away and maybe even his soul.Stunning how the sacrament of confession can reconcile even this man back to God. What a powerful awesome gift.
Like I feel really, really, reeeally baaad 'bout Lindsy Lohan too, ya know?
Like I really, really , reeeeally wanna slap her parents until I feel fully saitiated. Then I wanna slap Joe Simpson, and Mrs.Kardashian then Linda Thompson and Brittany Spears mother- Lynne.(Yikes, I'm starting to sound like Mel! I'm kidding....pretty much:)The problem is that these people have infected the public with social cooties- spiritually damaging ideas and way's of life that do not in any way enrich the world they/we live in. Their "norm" is totally unhealthy for our children to watch - which they do and by the millions.
The disease of alcoholism is horrid.I don't know that this is the cause of this kind of behavior. But it sure does fit the "syndrome".He needs our prayers.His wife, Robyn, needs them, also, as well his his children, all of them, and this poor woman caught in all of this.I can't help but think the Devil is involved, as well; esp. after Mel made "The Passion of the Christ".So sad.
The same stuff goes on with people all over the country every day. Mel Gibson's celebrity is the only reason it makes the news.
Poor poor Lindsey..now she'll be doing time with all the prostitutes and meth freaks....she ought to touch base with BFF Paris to find out what it was like?? No wait isn't she in rehab now?? Not Paris--Lindsey.. :)I'm so mean... :)Sara
I'm glad you said, "Don't listen to the tapes," Terry.I didn't want to, nor do I.Listening to such insane ranting makes me want to scream; I can't stand it (probably from a past of verbal abuse); I can't even stand to watch a movie where a man is beating a woman/calling her all kinds of names, or the abuse of any innocent child or even an animal (I guess I'm a wimp, but that's okay); a directee once shared the rantings of her crazy (I think demonically obsessed, if not possessed) spouse she had recorded on tape (and this was in front of her two young sons; yikes!) and I just about flipped out (not in front of her, however!).Nobody needs to listen to this; shame on those who are making this available.Take it to court, if you have to, but stop making it possible for people to indulge in things we don't need to hear or know about.
Professionals on the tapes we should never jump to conclusions.http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/video/mel-gibson-tapes-tampered-11169063Robin
Hi Robin - I think there are opposing views on the tapes, they also seem to be from February - I think it is obvious they have been made public in hopes the mistress can have custody of the child. That said - Gibson made his bed. He is probably just a breath away from pulling an O.J. on her.
