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.

Why isn't the catholic church condeming all the anti-semitic, anti-gay, anti-black, anti-women remarks? Obviously, any Christian would denounce any of these remarks. All the church is worried about is bodyguards? If this is a christian church, no wonder the catholic church is in a total moral decline.

Hypocrite. His fundamentalist Catholic 'church' condemns adultery (bummer, he did it), divorce (bummer, he did it), abusive behavior (bummer, he did it). But of course it encourages intolerance, racism and hatred of anyone not exactly like them. So now we know why he feels it's ok to be this way. He makes me ill.

The irony. This is a Christian?...

Nothing says control freak like having your own church. How bizarre that people think this guy is in any way normal!

Gibson’s secretive sect is not recognised by the Roman Catholic Church because it does not acknowledge the authority of the Pope or the Vatican and rejects the universally accepted teachings of the Second Vatican Council.

Gibson reportedly started building the church years ago for his father, Hutton Gibson, an avowed Holocaust denier and racist.

Mel Gibson is not a true Catholic, he’s a mere cultist who uses the Church for his own purposes. Shame. Mel Gibson is the patron saint of hypocrites!

Sweetheart thanks for posting another excellent analysis about the audio recordings. Your explanations about the many causes for Oksana Grigorieva's phony sounding audio recordings makes a lot of sense.

YES GSHARON IT'S TIME TO GET INTO SOMEONE ELSES BUSINESS. THATS EXACTLY WHAT THEY WANT YOU TO DO. THEY ARE COUNTING ON YOU AND MANY OTHERS TO WRITE MEAN, NASTY NEGATIVE COMMENTS ABOUT CELEBRITIES. WHILE YOU WRITE THEY PULL HE STRINGS. THEY THINK OF YOU AS A PUPPET. THEY KNOW IF THEY PUT FOOD IN THE BOWL THE DOG IS GOING TO COME. THEY SIT BEHIND THE SCENES AND LAUGH WHILE YOU JUDGE OTHERS, THEY THRIVE ON YOUR NEGATIVE COMMENTS. I WISH WE COULD PULL THE RUG OUT FROM UNDER THEM JUST ONCE AND HAVE EVERYONE WRITE THOUGHTFUL, KIND COMMENTS ABOUT ALL THESE CELEBRITIES. INSTEAD OF EVERYONE DOING JUST WHAT THEY EXPECT YOU TO DO. AND AFTER YOU WRITE YOUR COMMENTS, THEY ARE BEHIND THE SCENES TALKING ABOUT HOW IGNORANT YOU ARE, AND HOW BAD YOUR GRAMMER IS. EVEN IF MOST DECIDED TO STOP PERSECUTING PEOPLE ON THESE SIGHTS THEY KNOW THERES ALWAYS A BAD APPLE AND SOMEONE WILL CONTINUE. I HOPE YOU UNDERSTAND THIS MESSAGE. GOD BLESS.
