    He could have beaten his wife in front of his child and Patriot is still a good movie.

    He could have personally operated gas chambers and Braveheart is still a classic.

    He could actually kill a cop and Ransom is still a fantastic drama.

    The only thing he's don to me is give me great movies to watch and the occasional TMZ headline to chuckle at. There's nothing to forgive.

    He's a drunk, at the very least. Did he go to rehab? I don't know. Did he make amends to the mother of his child? He fought a settlement with her (child support) for two years.
    Not anyone's business, either.

    We, his loyal fan base, will keep his child-support paid.

    I wasn't trying to say Gibson's comments fell in the 'reasonable criticism' category - that is why I said they were over-the-top.

    The point I was trying to make is that reasonable people can believe that the US's unwavering support for Israel's treatment of the Palestinians might not be such a good idea. Nearly every time I say this, I get labeled anti-Semitic (dumped in the same barrel with Gibson) As you say, apples and oranges.

    He didn't do anything to me so I have nothing to forgive him for.

    Well now I'm even more confused, then. If Mel Gibson hasn't don anything to us, why ask if we can forgive him?

    Ask the people above that can't forgive him.

    Oh they're just trolling the thread by feigning having been offended. It's quite arrogant of them yet quite obvious. I'm counter-trolling them by asserting my unwavering support for Mell in the face of everything they're supposedly mad at him about, acknowledging every negative/bad thing Mell has ever said or did and saying that I'll watch his movies anyway. They are good movies, though.

    We're all just trolling each-other, and me of you, by challenging the premise of your question; yet you returned the toll by faking ignorance of what a premise is and then using a mini scorched-earth-denial tactic.

    And it's all good, btw. No hard feelings. Business as usual.

    I don't think Mel did anything that requires forgiveness. Pity for his sorry state of affairs and some hope that he gets help, sure, but not forgiveness.

    Re: Can You Forgive Mel Gibson.

    Mel Gibson is an asshat. It's not like he just made a mistake once and is sincerely sorry; he has a pattern of doing this kind of crap, and he'll probably do it again in the future. Although I agree with those who are saying that he doesn't need *our* forgiveness, I think he's a lowlife.

    Mel Gibson's movies suck too.

    I can't. This is important.
