Kids Trash Former NFL Player’s Home, Parents Defend Them

This is why I need to find a new Internet. One that doesn’t have stories like this.

What the hell, parents? Your kids pull this crap, take pictures, post them online, and then you defend their behavior? This is indicative of a very real problem: parents who don’t discipline their kids, and allow them to behave like jerks. If this news report is accurate (that’s a disclaimer in case it isn’t, but there are, you know, PHOTOS), the parents should pay a fine and perhaps go to jail if the law allows for such a penalty.

If you feel like getting more irritated, read the comments. Some morons are actually mad at Brian Holloway, the NFL player in question, for posting photos that WERE ALREADY POSTED ONLINE BY THE KIDS WHO BROKE INTO HIS HOUSE. Allegedly. In case the report is wrong.

Either way, I have noticed a lot of “my son/daughter would never do that” when in fact said son or daughter did in fact do that in front of dozens of witnesses. Or perhaps they posted a picture on the Internet of said action. You defend your children against bullies, stand up for their rights, love them unconditionally. You do not defend offensive behavior and make excuses.

Grrrr. And people wonder why I’ve seen the Avengers movie 12 times. Beats reading the news.

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 TMZ.com, 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.

Asides:

– 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.
