Does it ever end? Get a load of this…
Congregation Beth Shalom in Corona, California has sent Mel Gibson a letter in hopes of guilting him into forking over some cash to bail them out of a bad investment they made on their local synagogue. Apparently, the group took out a giant loan that they can’t afford to pay back and are now facing foreclosure.
In a move reminiscent of something out of post-war Germany, the Southern California synagogue is looking to Gibson as though he should pay some kind of “Holocaust” style reparations for the so-called anti-Semitic tirade he made back in 2006.
I guess it’s not enough that Mel has already spent millions of dollars contributing to Jewish charities, including $5 million to the Jewish Cedars Sinai Hospital. Not to mention getting down on his knees and apologizing to the Jewish community on numerous occassions—only to have his career railroaded anyway.
Entertainment website TMZ apparently got their hands on the letter. Here’s what it says:
“Our proposal to you, Mr. Gibson, is since you have been cited as an Anti-Semitic, and have denied those allegations, what better way to prove to all your fans and the nay Sayers — than to endorse and help raise funds for our cause — SOS, Save Our Synagogue…“Mr. Gibson, we offer you to be a Mensch**and make a sizable contribution to our cause.”
That’s what you call CHUTZPAH, folks!
**Mensch: A Yiddish word that means a “person with integrity and honour; a good person”

Several people who were involved in the production of The Passion of the Christ converted to Catholicism. (Traditional) Mass was held every morning before the shooting of the film, this, and other things that happened on the set, inspired those around it to look towards Christ.
Another thing that isn’t mentioned, one of Mel’s good friends was Jewish. WAS. He too converted to Catholicism and was baptized by Mel’s (then) priest. This does not bode well in the “Jewish community”.
They had continuously harassed him during the long construction phase of his privately owned chapel with building permit delays after delays. This was through the cooperation of the then anti-Cardinal Mahony and the local city council (of Agoura, CA) to make sure it would not be built. They failed, it was finished a year ago, and the parish is thriving.
They have also bugged his property to falsely accuse his father of speaking “with authority” regarding the validity of Mel’s marriage to his wife of 24 years (this was in a meeting where only five people were present).
The one who got the biggest laugh out of it, was Hutton himself who was amused that people actually thought he had some sort of authority in the Catholic Church.
Like an ongoing plague of gnats, these un-relentless jackals will continue to pick at him until there is nothing left, and will continue to use those to help them get what they want. A destruction of a soul. He needs all the prayers he can get. (End of Lydia’s comment)
