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.

where do you get this twisted **** from TMZ. I was at the church yesterday, it is not locked down it is not a cult, anybody can go excepting carloads over over sensationalistic trash mag reporters. The Russian slapper decided to stop going in january of her own volition, probably because she doesn't have a soul anyway. Get some of your facts right will you.

I find this "church" that has approved people attending to be really sad. Church is for everyone, not an exclusive few.

Tell the priest (he is Catholic?) that he needs to preach about adultery, racism, and wraith. Well, while they are at it, they might as well hit on all the 7 deadly sins....apparently, Mel has a problem with 6 of them.

Mel Gibson is no different than the millions of wife beaters
in this country. He needs to be put in prison with the other
domestic abuse violaters. Also is movies are not that great.
There are stars ten times as better actors. Timothy Dalton, Brad Pitt, Clint Eastwood, etcetr. He would fade out in the room next to these stars. he is a joke, i am glad. i hope
she takes evrything and destroy him.

Mel should DONATE the church of Mel, not sanctioned by Rome, to a childrens hospital or recovery center. Mel should go back to attending daily mass as he did when he directed the passion . I for one will pray for this larger than life star who will find it nearly impossible to humble himself since he is MEL GIBSON, but to who much is given much is required. Mel should become a humanitarian and serve his fellow man.

Mel does have the appearance of someone who is on the verge of madness. Mel is also at fault for "allowing" Oksana to take advantage of him finacially, unless he is a blind man ( most men who chase younger women and have nothing in common with them other than a BJ for insecure reasons)he knew what he was doing and in looking rediculous, he is lashing back at her for thinking with the "other head". Oksana knew what she was doing, she knew how to play for sympathy, Both Mel and Oksana are to blame, no one is at more fault than the other.
As for Mel's Therapist......4 years and nothing? I am beginning to wonder, who got the best of Mel financially....Oksana or the Therapist. Dump the Therapist for someone who "really knows" how to help someone.

thuis is NOT a legitimate Catholic Church. it is NOT approved by the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. the priest at Holy Family enclave was ordered NOT to say Mass there at all. Mel built this church with his OWN set of rules. He does NOT believe in the Pope.

Mel is a head case, he is an abuser, a racist, a good Catholic he is not. He is full of himself, thats his problem. Hopefully he will find no work in Hollywood anymore, let his go back to where he came from.

I SUSPECT THAT MEL GIBSON ,LINDSEY LOHAN, TIGER WOODS, AND SO MANY MORE UNDERSTAND MEDIA PERSECUTION NOW. THE MEDIA HAS SET THEMSELVES UP AS JUDGE AND JURY AND EXECUTIONER. AND THEY HAVE DESTROYED SO MANY LIVES AND CAREERS. IT'S ABOUT TIME MOVIE STARS AND ENTERTAINERS DID SOMETHING ABOUT IT. THEY HAVE A VOICE, THEY HAVE POWER AND MONEY. THEY SHOULD RALLY CONGRESS. NOT GUILTY MEANS NOT GUILTY AND THEY SHOULD NOT BE ABLE TO CONTINUE TO MAKE YOU LOOK GUILTY ON THESE TV SHOWS. WHATS MORE IF THERE HAS'NT BEEN A TRIA YET. THE MEDIA SHOULD BE ABLE TO MENTION THERES AN UPCOMING TRIAL PERIOD. INSTEAD OF GETTING PEOPLE TO VOTE ON LINE AS TO RATHER SOMEONE IS GUILTY OR NOT. AND ALL THE OTHER TACTICS THEY USE TO DESTROY LIVES. NOW THEY KNOW HOW MJ FELT. THIS MEDIA FRENZY MUST STOP. AS IT IS THEY ARE MORE POWERFUL THAN IRS, THE PRESIDENCY, OR ANY HUGE CORPORATE CONGLOMORATE. THEY HAVE MORE POWER THAN ANY ENTITY IN THE US. SOMETHING MUST BE DONE NOW!!!!!!!

Hahahaha...Mel has a church!!!!!! Could have fooled me. Evidently he hasn't been in a long, long, long, long time or he falls asleep during the sermons or they need to get a new pastor cause this one ain't getting through to Mel.
