    Sure I can forgive him. Now if he could just act.

    Yeah, I really could care less about his views, so I've got nothing to forgive. He's an actor, an idiot (which goes along with actor) and therefore prone to doing and saying stupid and moronic things. At least he didn't like, go hang out with the vietcong or anything during a war. Mel just did the standard "stupid actor" move....
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    There were rumors that Mel's talk was baited or manipulated. Supposedly between his speaking and hers, the frequency sound waves were quite different.

    Yeah, that, pretty much. I was disappointed a bit; I'd kinda dared hope he was a smidge better than the typical Hollywood moron. But, it isn't like half of hollywood hasn't gone off on a stupid tear at some point. Mel just happened to push all the wrong buttons to get crucified in the media... not to mention having political and religious positions unlikely to make him Mr Popular in Hellywood.

    I've pretty much lost all respect for him as a person, but I still enjoy his movies. There's a lot of actors who I think are cretins with the morals of a baboon, but if their art is good then that is what I pay to see in the theater.

    I never was into the "cult of personality" for actors, singers, or sports figures. IMO they should act, sing and play respectively and otherwise keep their yaps shut if they know what's good for them. Neither Morgan Freeman nor Sir Alec Guiness carries weight with me in politics, because their field of expertise is acting. Nor am I overly interested in their personal lives... not really my business.

    I did cross Mel off my invitation list for my spring BBQ event... I can't abide mouthy drunks.

    Re: Can You Forgive Mel Gibson.

    With all Hollywood types, I find it very east to separate their work on screen with their real life persona. Gibson is no different. Perhaps if I were young and impressionable and looked to Hollywood for role models as some young people do, that would be different.

    Gibson is a talented filmmaker and I look forward to his work.

    I think of Clint Eastwood- who has the reputation of a conservative libertarian and I loathe that particular political philosophy. However, his films are more often than not well worth the price of admission and he is highly talented and skilled. Even when his material is blatantly political - like the Dirty Harry movies - I am able to suspend disbelief and just go along for the entertainment value and enjoy the films for what they are.

    Mel Gibson does not need my forgiveness.

    Apocalypto was pretty good imo.

    Still find the recorded dscussions dubious, though. Perhaps I'll find/post that vid explaining why something seems fishy about it, later.

    I'm bucking the trend here, but no. Gibson is a miserable POS on too damned many levels. Fortunately for him, he neither needs my forgiveness nor cares about it.
