Mel Gibson is back in the limelight thanks to divorce proceedings started Monday by his wife. ABC News comes up with this headline: “Philandering Fundamentalist? Mel Gibson’s alleged infidelity doesn’t seem to mesh with his staunch Catholicism.”
No duh. Though I wouldn’t call his traditionalist theology “staunch Catholicism.” More like backwards Catholicism, or, put more diplomatically, pre-Vatican II Catholicism.
