Another Gibson Disappointment


We are all angry at Mel Gibson, in varying degrees and for varying reasons. But I feel Mel has let down Catholics, and just fans of Catholicism's more colorful aspects, especially, as this public poster child for ultratraditional Catholicism has chosen to expiate his sins through the secular means of some unspecified "rehab program" rather than, say, scourging himself, publicly or privately, or, better still, whatever the Father instructs him to do. (If the Father instructed him to go to rehab as penance, then that's between him and God.)
