According to the MSM (and who is more MSM than Newsweek) the solution to the world's problems are constantly ignoring a vast resourse of knowledge, education, and scholarship in Hellywood. Have a quagmire in Vietnam - there's Hanoi "Jane" Fonda. Climate Change, Globull Warming and elephants - there's none other than Leonardo DiCaprio as your go-to actor. Voting Rights, Trump, Obama, and Covid - Whoopi Goldberg has some distilled wisdom for the ages.

Today's issue of Pope Watch has legendary Hellywood reporter Billy Bush taking on Mel Gibson.

Corruption in the Vatican? How about starting with Martin Luther nailing his Ninety-five Theses to the door of All Saints' Church in Wittenberg in 1517? But of course none of the Hellywood "elite" seem to know anything about it.

The Hellywood "elites" are only good at one thing- fantasy.

Mel Gibson Says Catholic Church Needs 'Housecleaning' After Series of Scandals
By Ryan Smith On 1/27/22 at 10:16 AM EST

Hollywood actor Mel Gibson has stated that the Catholic Church needs to undergo "housecleaning," after being mired in scandal over the years.

The Catholic Church has faced a number of unflattering headlines recently, most prominently for its record of handling sexual abuse cases.

And The Passion of the Christ director Gibson, who was raised a Sedevacantist traditionalist Catholic, believes a clean-up behind the scenes would greatly help the image of the church. Sedevacantists believe that since the death of Pope Pius XII in 1958 (or, in some cases, the death of Pope John XXIII in 1963) subsequent popes have been neither true Catholics nor true popes, but rather heretics because they espoused Modernism.

In an interview with Extra host Billy Bush, Gibson was asked if his decision to team up with fellow Catholic Mark Wahlberg for the upcoming faith-themed biopic Father Stu was part of an effort to "get back to the good" of the church.

"Back to basics," Gibson, 66, responded. "Of course, it's lamentable all the stuff that's gone on. Like any institution, it's capable of being corrupt. And, you know, it is sad to see, but as always, I don't think it's the institution that's at fault.

"I think it's a lot of people they get in it. Institutions are as good or as bad as the people in it, running it. It is having a bit of a rugged time right now."

Gibson—whose self-built Malibu church, The Church of the Holy Family, is not affiliated with the Roman Catholic archdiocese—added: "I think there's going to need to be a housecleaning. It is going to have to come back to some sort of equilibrium in the future."

It is not the first time that Gibson has spoken out about certain aspects of the church. In September 2021, the National Catholic Reporter published an article that quoted him speaking out against the Second Vatican Council.

According to the report, the screen star endorsed the Coalition for Canceled Priests, whose bishops have removed the clerics from ministry for expressing opinions seen as controversial by the church.

"And my question is, who's hiring (the bishops)? I don't think it's Jesus. Is it (Pope) Francis? Who's hiring Francis? Is it Pachamama?" Gibson said.

Gibson said that "there was nothing wrong" with the Catholic Church before Vatican II's reforms, adding: "It didn't need to be fixed. It was doing pretty well."

While Gibson is known to be a devoted Catholic, he has faced a large number of detractors amid accusations of antisemitism and racism. Actor Joshua Malina branded him a "Jew-hater" in an impassioned op-ed for The Atlantic last month.

This week, the Vatican spoke out in defense of Pope Benedict XVI's record of handling sexual abuse cases in the church after it was reported that the former pontiff had mishandled four such cases in the 1970s and 1980s.

German law firm Westpfahl Spilker Wastl's report, which was released last week, covered church officials' handling of sexual abuse allegations between 1945 and 2019.

Benedict, then known as Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, was accused in the report of mishandling four cases when he was head of the Munich Archdiocese between 1977 and 1982. He was also accused of approving the transfer of a pedophile priest to Munich in 1980. The priest went on to molest another boy in 1986.

In an editorial for Vatican News, Andrea Tornielli, the editorial director for the Vatican's Dicastery for Communication, said that the report "is not a judicial inquiry nor a final sentence."

Hell's foundations quiver at the shout of praise;
brothers, lift your voices, loud your anthems raise.
...and get off my lawn
