Mel Gibson's Church -- Security on 'High Alert'

7/17/2010 4:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mel Gibson's church has been on total lockdown ever since the whole alleged abuse scandal broke -- and according to a source inside Mel's haven, security's been cranked up more than ever before.

A member of Mel's congregation tells TMZ, security at the chapel is on "high alert" -- checking IDs and "making sure there aren't extra people in approved cars." According to the source, guards have been stationed outside every weekend ... as well as at Mel's house around the clock.

We're told new, would-be parishioners are persona non grata, for security reasons.

Our source adds Oksana stopped attending the church in February -- approximately a month after the alleged tooth/veneer-breaking argument with Mel.

Which church? Is Gibson covering the costs or is this just a publicity stunt?

You didn't know Mel built a church for his crazy made up religion because he & his father believe the Second Vatican Council was a Masonic plot backed by the Jews?

You have to question ANYONE who would get involved with the insane bigoted Gibson family.
What about Robyn?

I think Mel needs some anger management classes. I doubt that he is a racist, he has been around the movie industry too long, I think he has a really bad temper and just lets the words fly only to regret them later. As for Oksana, act like a whore, get treated like one. If he did inflict injury on her, I'm sorry for her, no woman deserves to be abused. I guess when she was slipping around dating him while he was still married he never lost his temper and was just Mr. Nice Guy and while living in a nice house with lots of money, he treated her with respect. When he broke it off, suddenly he's a bad guy. See this cheap piece of crap for what she is, not make her a media star.

Why isn't Mel swearing in Latin or Hebrew....it would sound more genuine and less offensive if that can be done. 'O, ****' = '**** it' in Latin, etc. It's not 'Jesus' it's "hey Zeus!" and like that. "et tu ****a" = "you too, you ****!" or "et tu ****is ****a"="you too, you ****ing ****!" Anyway, all your photos of Mel seem to speak for themselves and one can easily guess what he seems to be saying. For example, in the photo above, he is clearly saying: "You bit 'me' with those ****ing jagged teeth?... you tooth-stunted ****!".

Was Obama trying to get into Mel's church? Then why are there so many 'Obama is a Kenyan' comments on this post? If you can't stay on topic because of your personal hatred for a politician, start your own f'ing site! This is not a 'birther' site and it is irritating to have to wade through dozens of these off-topic comments to get back on topic.

What a great church. They protect a racist, chauvinist, anti-Semite like Mel, and keep out new members. Some church. Jesus must be turning over in his grave. Mel, you are not a Christian.

My oldest brother was a member of Mel Gibson's church and proud of the fact. Attending church with a movie star was a big accomplishment in his mind. My brother was a woman-hating fruitcake just like Mel.

It is not a Church, its a SHRINE his money built so that people can worship at the Altar of Mel. The Catholic Diocese and the Vatican do not acknowledge his church.
