Mel Gibson's Church -- Shutting Down Mass Services

12/9/2010 2:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Mel Gibson's mega church is putting the brakes on all congregational services because of a picture that was taken on church grounds this weekend and then passed on to TMZ.

Sources connected with the church tell us ... Gibson was "extremely concerned about the invasion of privacy." One source adds, "He is not just concerned that photos of his daughter were taken at the church, he is concerned for the privacy of his parishioners."

Members of the Holy Family Chapel in Agoura, CA received an email notice from church honchos yesterday which read, "There will be no Masses here at Holy Family Chapel until further notice."

Our sources tell us, however, that limited services will continue to be provided. In fact, a service was conducted yesterday -- the Holy Day of Obligation  -- for long term parishioners.

dd, no wouldn't happen that way. I have a feeling this was not reported exactly right, you have to remember there is a board like team, other churches call them deacons. They meet and decide, Mel doesn't just do anything he wants at the church. He couldn't. Maybe like a CEO type though where he gives his input.

It is religious bigotry but it's okay because they are talking about Catholics. It's the last religion people are allowed to publicly bash. In fact it's politically correct to bash Catholicism.

And they call Mel a bigot...

NEWSFLASH,Mel Gibson, building your own church doesn't give YOU the fast track to heaven.

And IF you DO get to heaven, and only God would know the learning lesson involved, prepare yourself for all those you have hated for whatever reason, waving you in for THEIR WELCOME!

Are you proud of yourself, Mr. Levin?
You encouraged the trespass and deceit at a private property.
What if an activist took unauthorized photos inside a synagogue and sold them to the highest bidder? Would you feel responsible for any subsequent safety issues in its wake?
