Opus hodiernus: postulatium

Agnum Dei,

I welcome your email correspondence on all matters such as suggestions for the blog, political questions, and religious advice. I will try to respond to as many mails as I can. I have placed my personal email address above. It is written out and broken up into different words, but when you write me, you put it into one word with the @ sign (in place of the word "at") and a period in place of the word "dot". This is my personal email, so please don't give it out. I would like to mantain the dialogue I am having with the people that are here.

This blog is obviously a hoax created by someone whose intention is to discredit the real Mel Gibson. Most of the opinions expressed are anything but Christian and are not-so-subtle caricatures of some of the most ignorant views touted by extreme right commentators in the U.S. (Note the post attacking the science of global warming.)

I have read all of the posts, and anyone who has seen the Passion of the Christ (a truly beautiful and spiritual movie) and heard Mel Gibson speak about it and defend himself against his critics should know that (1) he is not anti-Semitic, whereas this blog reeks of anti-Semitism, and (2) Mel knows perfectly well that Jesus' native language was Aramaic, not Latin. The person who created THIS BLOG apparently DOES NOT KNOW THAT.

Case closed. Mel Gibson has written none of the posts contained herein.

My guess is that the blog was actually written by someone who despised the film "The Passion of the Christ" and knows that Gibson is working on a series on the holocaust. Such a person probably wants to make Gibson out to be the anti-Semite that his critics claim him to be.

See the numerous references in this blog to "judeo-secularists" and the one to a "rotten Jew" who killed Christ.

Wake up! Don't be fooled so easily.

Thank you anonymous! I'm glad you were able to get that off your chest. I will not delete your comments because I feel that it is good to have a healthy debate. You do not have to believe in me, they only faith you ahve to have is in our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. With that said I will refute your arguments one by one. First "global warming." Even "science" says that it can't be proven. Did you know that? I think not. The Passion of the Christ: Yes it was a beautiful movie. Thank you for your praise! That was the point.
Anti-Semitism: No, I am not anti-semitic, nothing I have posted has been anti-semitic. There was one reference to a "rotten Jew," not multiple. Was it not a Jew who killed Christ? Does it make me racist to point out that simple fact? I love Jews. God said to love them, and that we need Jews on earth for His Second Coming. There is also no disputing that there are judeo-secularist groups out there fighting against and oppressing Christians. Yes there will be an upcoming movie featuring Jews. It will not be anti-semitic! As for the Latin, anonymous, what language was the Bible written in? What language has been the language of the True Church for the past 2000 years? Latin. Again thank you for your comments and God bless.

You tell 'em, Mel. Ha ha. I wonder if "anonymous" is a judeo-secularist. He is certainly trying to instill doubt in the people. I guess the TRUTH is a bit too much for some. I suppose anonymous thinks that we, the users of this blog, are all fake also. Keep up the message of hope, Mel!

Seek and ye shall find. Question, and ye shall be surprised. The thing that bothers me the most is the bad grammar (this from a well educated man) and the careless spelling.

If this blog is really a hoax then I am going to be soooo disappointed. I was excited to see you actually respond to my question about the term "judeo-secularist". But if you are not really Mel then....well, that's just my luck i guess. Again nothing cool ever seems to happens to me. If you are NOT really Mr. Gibson, then you just plain STINK. If you are truely Mel some kind of reassurance would be nice.


If you really are Mel, then I'm sure you smell very nice.

I must admit, unlike our Lord, I am human, so I, too, am fallible. Like all humans, I, too, sin. I, too, am imperfect. I, too, misspell. I, too, make grammar errors. My question for you: Are you seeking a grammarian or are you seeking Truth? Often times when I am passionate I get too excited to worry about the details. This is especially true when it comes to Jesus. Spreading Truth is more important to me than mundane things like grammar. The Lord judges our actions, not our semi-colons. The Lord knows that we are imperfect and he accepts it. Do you?

The question is not whether or not I am real, but whether you have faith in the Lord Jesus Christus. As I have said before, there are some here (and we know who they are) who wish to sow doubt.

What is my response? Well, I could delete their comments. But I'd rather confront them with the Truth.

And what is the Truth about doubt? Well, the Bible had something to say about doubt.

Mark, 9:23-24, tells us the story of a father whose son was possessed by evil spirits, and who came to Jesus for help.

Jesus said to the father:

"If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes."

The father responded: "I believe. Help my unbelief!"

And the boy was ok.

You've got to believe, Elizabeth.

I do believe in Christ. I just get angry when I don't understand what He is doing in the world and in my own life. When I don't understand, my first response is anger. In my heart I am shaking my fist at Him. I am saying in my mind "Why, God, Why? You make no sense to me when you allow evil such a wide path of destuction in the lives hearts of men."
Sometimes God just makes no sense. And yet I believe in his omnipotence. How can I not. The alternatives leave me with no hope or joy. I cannot survive the day to day to struggles in my own mundane life without the hope of Christ. It would be beyond despair to think of it. So I hope you are who you say you are. But my faith in God is weak, my faith in myself is even less, and my faith in mankind barely exists.

In Roman times, it was said Beneficium accipere libertatem est vendere , and the Bible also tells us:

“When you buy a Hebrew slave, six years shall he serve; and in the seventh shall he go out free, for nothing. If he came in by himself, he shall go out by himself: if he were married, then his wife shall go out with him. If his master has given him a wife, and she has borne him sons or daughters, the wife and the children shall be her master's, and he shall go out by himself. And if the slave shall plainly say, I love my master, my wife, and my children; I will not go out free: then his master shall bring him unto God, and he shall bring him to the door or unto the door-post, and his master shall bore his ear through with an awl, and he shall be his slave forever.”
—Exodus 21:2-6.

Each of us must follow our own path, and for each person, that path is laden with different obstacles. For you, Elizabeth, perhaps the path begins with believing in yourself.

Thanks Mel
That gives me something to think about.
The scripture you choose to make your points are so.... well lets just say they are strange. And yet somehow they are perfectly suited to the purpose of your meaning.
Again thank you.
My "dubium" in your true identity seem to be ebbing just a bit.


Why do you thing George Bush is going to hell? I voted for him.

Mel: love the beard, by the way. I noticed that you have "rounded its corners." Nice going.

Hi Mel! I am a huge fan of yours, I was living an out control gay lifestyle and ever since I saw your Film, I had an ephiphany, since then I have been a regular member of the Catholic church Thank you for that.I have found my place in this world. I've been reading your blog and the fact that you take the time to respond and to speak for all of us who feel like that, its just extremely overwhelming. I voted for Bush and I know he will go to hell, but i can only whish that one day, we shall have somebody like you as our president. And all the people that are saying this is a hoax! they are wrong, because i know in my heart, that it is you. You are the chosen one and God is using you to give us the message of hope americans need.
I love u Mel!!!

Every one here is free to think as they please. I believe life is about free will. You can choose to doubt or believe, choose to question or be part of the answer.
The best thing about this is that people are actually thinking intelligent thoughts in pursuit of the Truth.
So write on... I am still reading.

If this blog is really by Mel Gibson, one would think he would use more than one photo of himself, since there are so many available that are far more attractive than this particular one. Jesus did have a beard, no doubt, but unlike Mr. Gibson's, it looked good on Him. I seriously doubt he would use a photo that has been compared to Saddam all over the world!
Whoever you are, you must really have a deep-seeded resentment for Mr. Gibson, as well as an over-inflated ego. I suggest you get anger-management counseling.

Mel: Please look at concerning the global warming hoax - and check where I posted the Rosary in Latin.
