Mel Seeks Fatherly Guidance

in Baby Mama Drama

7/1/2010 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mel Gibson has finally broken his silence about his allegedly violent relationship with baby mama Oksana Grigorieva -- but the man who got the exclusive swore to God he wouldn't blab ... 'cause he's a Reverend.

TMZ has learned Mel has been opening up to Reverend Clement Procopio -- the man in charge of the actor's mega-church in Agoura Hills, CA.

When we asked Rev. Procopio if he's offered any advice to Mel, he simply responded, "Of course, I gave him lots of words of wisdom.  I am his confessor."

Obviously, the Reverend wouldn't get into specifics -- but it's clear, Mel's religious advisors could play as big of a role in this case as his lawyers.

Mel the woman recorded you calling her a ****, whore and saying you didn't care about her being raped by f'kng "N"s. Why should anyone believe anything you say now? You really should look Charlie Sheen up and let him tell you how disrespect a woman, beat a woman, call a woman an "N" without repercussions. He was recorded saying it too.

You and Charlie have a blessed day.

Again, Charlie Sheen wife recorded him calling her a "N" "****" and "whore" and he is accused of beating his wife just like Mel Gibson. The moral of the story is, " If you're white skinned and rich, you can call a woman a "****" "whore" "N" and beat her ass without suffering any repercussions!

In Charlie's and Mel's world money talks and bull****s walks them right out of jail to do whatever they want to do to a woman. Its weird that so many people loved Mel's movie about CHRIST and how its bad to do the wrong things.

Mel should take a page from his book and Charlie, well.... yanno who really cares? By the way, I'm African American/Black and love the color of my skin.

I'd rather form an opinion on the content of ones character and not on her race or religion. Mel and Charlie, you both have a blessed day and I sincerely hope you get all you deserve that is in GOD's will.

When you own the church and you're paying the priest's salary, I'm sure he'll hear exactly what he wants to hear. Look how well it's worked so far.
Mel's either on drugs or booze, or needs a checkup from the neck up...........

It's a shame - he was a screen God and he gave such good movie, but I will never be able to watch him again. He's just a very good looking, very talented ******* and no script can cover that up at this point.

This type of Photoshop is deplorable, and so are those who would use it to degrade him. Just admit you hate him for making the movie "The Passion of the Christ", and will never let down until he dies. Jesus said, "I did not come to call the just, but sinners." Yes, he's a sinner, like you and me, and if any of you is without sin, "then cast the first stone." I'm afraid everyone reading this would have to say they've done evil. The only difference here is, he can still confess his sins and be forgiven, but he must have firm purpose of amendment, otherwise, the confession will be invalid. He knows that! Why don't you'all just look at your own souls.

A few words on Fr. Procopio: Strictly speaking, he hasn't been defrocked. In 2003, Bp Thomas O'Brien of Phoenix stripped him of his faculties, but made no attempt to reduce him to the lay state. In other words, he's still a priest, he's just a priest who can't celebrate Mass in his home diocese. As far as I know, he remains a member in good standing of the Orders of Friars Minor.

You're probably wondering what Procopio did to lose his faculties. Well, he insisted on saying the Latin Tridentine Mass over Bishop O'Brien's express objections. As he explains in a letter to the bishop, he believes the Council of Trent, which laid down the conventions for the Latin Mass, to be infallible. By overturning some of those conventions, the Second Vatican Council rendered itself invalid.

This would explain his appeal to Mel Gibson. Gibson, like his father before him, is a so-called traditionalist Catholic. Traditionalists' relationship with the greater Church is precarious, to say the least. Some go beyond rejecting the reforms of Vatican II, insisting that no pope who endorsed the reforms has any valid claim to wear the Fisherman's Ring. In other words, the last five popes -- Benedict, John Paul I and II, Paul VI and John XXIII -- are all impostors. It's unclear whether Gibson himself believes his; his statements on the subject have been ambiguous.

Oh, and few traditionalists are especially fond of Jews. Not all deny the Holocaust, as Bishop Williamson so famously does, but the ones who accept it as historical fact are inclined to gloat over it.

His god is obviously named Hitler. His bible is named "Mein Kampf". By being amused by the events of the so called weird Nazis, instead of destroying them at once, the world paid dearly for it's mistake w/the lives of tens of millions. Mel Gibson should be taken lightly. How can one even imagine forgiving him. He should & must be ostracized from the society of decent humans. it was really about time that ' hollywood" woke up & stopped giving this LOW - LIFE, a stage.
