    Can You Forgive Mel Gibson.

    Robert Downey Jr (who Mel Gibson helped get back into the industry) is saying it is time to forgive Mel for his rant against Jews and a very angry voice mail to his ex-girlfriend.

    I didn't give a **** in the first place.
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    Is this really a question? I can't believe I actually even read this thread and bothered to reply...

    Can I forgive Mel for being an asshat? Sure, assuming he ever stops being an asshat. Until he can do that, why bother?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    You're claiming Mel Gibson has don something to each member of DP, personally, for each of us to then need to forgive him. I would like to know why you think this.

    Re: Can You Forgive Mel Gibson.

    Who cares what Mel Gibson, Rosie O'Donnell, Toby Keith, Natalie Mane, Morgan Freedman, or any other person in the entertainment industry has to say about political issues or racism or similar issues. They are people just like us - they don't make laws. They have free speech rights just like us.

    Was Gibson's rant over-the-top. Yes. If it is a deal-breaker for you, don't buy his product.

    I don't believe the Holocaust gives Jews/Israel a free pass to do whatever from now on. They can be criticized for their actions by reasonable people who are not anti-Semitic just as the US can be criticized for things like Gitmo without being anti-American.

    I sure will, because he's a fantastic actor.

    I go to movies for entertainment, not politics. You can be a total douche and I'll still watch your movie if it's good......just like how the public vote a 'community organizer' (I still don't know wtf that is, btw) into the white-house even-though he's grossly unqualified and his policies place the country in economic danger...he vents for you, and that gives you your dopamine high, so you naturally support your drug dealer and give him the office.

    Mel Gibson's movies do-it for me, so I couldn't care less what he says in the real world.

    true, don't see his movies. but don't equate his anti-semitism, which is REAL, to criticizing israel for some of their policy decisions. apples and oranges.

    Re: Can You Forgive Mel Gibson.

    You mean forgive him for this stuff he said to the mother of his child?

    You look like a f****** bitch in heat. And if you get raped by a pack of n****'s, it'll be your fault.
    Shut the f*** up. You should just f****** smile and blow me.
    You don't apologize for nothing? Well then, you're a dishonest c***.
    I need a woman, not a ****ing little girl with a f****** dysfunctional c***.
    I don't need medication. You need a f****** bat on the side of the head. Alright?
    I mean LEAVE c***, bitch, golddigger, c*** whore. And that's what you are.
    Why don't you f*** off to that bitch Alyssia? She was f****** making eyes at me. She'd have *%@*! me in five seconds.
    I'll put you in a f****** rose garden, c***. You understand that? Because I'm capable of it.
    You don't f****** count, You're a f****** using whore.
    Go look after my child, you f****** c*** whore. I hope she doesn't turn out like you.
    Or just his drunken anti-Jewish rant when he was arrested? You know, when he said he owned Malibu and would spend all his money ruining the cop who arrested him for drunk driving.

    What's he done to deserve it? 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.

    Personally, until he's made big-time amends, I hope he never works again.
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."
