02/19/2004: "Mel Gibson's Father"
This blog entry from Dale Price's site was impressive enough to include.
I've been reading the articles over the last few days about Mel Gibson's father and some of his odd theological and political ideas. I didn't feel that they were worth commenting on in my blog because I don't think that anyone, even Mel's dad should be able to steal the focus from what is important here and that is the movie itself. I decided (and am sticking to it) that it is best to ignore those thoughts.
Yet deep inside I didn't understand how Mel could be so disciplined about refusing to comment on or to criticize his father, when even his father seems to be trying to add controversy to the film. But Dale's blog entry helped me to put the events in a new light. As such, they were well worth reading.
