Mel Gibson’s Father Thinks Pope is Gay [Daddy Issues]

TMZ has audio of Hutton Gibson, Mel Gibson’s father, calling in to a radio show and saying that Pope Benedict XVI is gay. As in homosexual. TMZ has the recording; here is a partial transcript.

The elder Mr. Gibson called “the Political Cesspool Radio Program to discuss the issues involving the Catholic Church,” according to TMZ.

When asked by the host if the Catholic Church had “become politicized…so that it was no longer able to take on controversial issues like homosexuality,” or if perhaps they were simply “unwilling to do so,” Hutton Gibson replied: “It’s not willing to do so because half of the people there in the Vatican are queer.”

Gibson added that they (presumably the gay people in the church hierarchy) have “fostered it” (gay stuff?) because they want to “destroy the church.”

In the recording posted at, Gibson is asked by the host about the involvement of the Freemasons in the church’s supposed demise. When Pope Benedict’s name came up, Gibson said, “He’s one of them. He was the one that influenced the last four… the last four anti-popes.” When asked if Benedict could be a Freemason, Gibson says, “I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised.”

And finally, the money shot:

Host: Now I’m going to ask you a very controversial question. Do you think that Benedict is a homosexual?

Hutton Gibson: I certainly do. Why else would he put up with this? He was in charge of stamping it out. And he did nothing. He just kept quiet. Keep things quiet, don’t do anything. We don’t want to disturb anybody.

Hutton Gibson also says that the Pope is a “slippery character” who is now going to “get behind the thing he’s always scorned.” Make up your own joke.

WOW. I thought I had daddy issues. And I do. But, um. WOW.


– This will probably be the only time that I slightly agree with Hutton Gibson. It was wrong of the Church to keep what appears to have been rampant sexual abuse among the preisthood under wraps. That’s kind of a minor point in all of this, but I thought it was worth mentioning.

– Can you imagine if this guy was your father? Unless you moved out at a very young age, what are the odds that you wouldn’t end up a nutjob?

– Anti-Popes would be a good name for a band.
