You forgot to mention that they both have a 'thing' for the original language that stuff was actually in...

AHHHHHH you have just ruined my mental image of Mel Gibson FOREVER! You can NOT put them in the same category. Who would you like to save you as a damsel in distress?...Mel or Mr. G...that'd be a great Shreck spoof...

Mel is a hunk who makes us sigh as a dashing gentleman...just don't see Mr. G that way (and I'd be disturbed if I did).

I agree with the above comment...poor Mel!

Hmm... "[Mutiny of] The Bounty" isn't exactly "The Pineapple Story", either. Whatever happened to staying under the ordained umbrella of protection of Anthony Hopkins? Mel should have yielded his rights to stay in the South Pacific. If Mr. Gibson had dedicated himself to single service instead of being distracted by the defraudingly dressed islanders, he would have avoided all his problems.

Just the thought of similarity between Mel Gibson and Gothard is making me sick to my stomach.

How short IS Mel Gibson anyway? I always thought he'd be a huge, hunky man...

Mel is 5' 10 1/2'' tall. Not huge, but not short like Billy G.

And Mel is a VERY magnetic personality, people just like being around him, working with him etc. You have to have ALOT of magnetism and charisma to be a star of his caliber.

Hmm... I think that is "calibre"... but I am not sure. Maybe some gun toting redneck from the midwest or south can tell us...

mel is a beautiful man who actually has the money and resources to provide for his brood without expecting everyone in his congregation to pick up the tab. kudos to him. his wife is gorgeous, intelligent, takes care of herself, and is very lucky. the are extremely wealthy and own an island (never a necessity, but hey, if you got the casha...) and live a life of easy, yet genuine and human self-sufficiency.

gothard is a nosy parker who has made excuses all his life why he has no familial responsibilities, but has always been willing to tell other people how to raise their kids and love their wives. he makes a huge deal out of driving a ncheap old hoopty while ripping my family out of thousands for his dumb materials.


no resemblance whatsoever.

COMING THIS FALL.........
[billy g's beady eyes staring down from the silver screen] he's wearing a kilt and marching in front of an army of mighty young warriors in blue and white. wielding his mighty red sword and a overhead projector, he marches through the land freeing christians from their demonic strongholds, their white bread and their pocketbooks.

it's........BRAVESEED!

(i know the title doesn't fit, but for someone as sexually repressed as gothard, he likes using the word SEED a lot...thought it would fit...)

That last comment was not cool because it has the word 'seed' in the same sentence as 'gothard'. And then the mental image of the kilt hit me and i want to clean my brain with a wire brush. I don't *hate* bill like some people but youre FREAKING ME OUT.

Mel Gibson is not hot.

Chyca, are you saying that G-money is hot? :)p

Anonymous chyca said...

no, dude! Mel Gibson is not hot and the Big G is ugly. another thing they have in common, apparently.
I was just responding to the people whose admiration of Gibson's "hotness" had been damaged by the comparison.

Let's do a Tom Cruise comparison. He's super short, and at least some would say that he is cute? AND he is similar to Bill in that he likes "YOUNG ladies..."

I don't know about Mel Gibson. The latest picture I saw of him shows him wearing a beard; that means he has a problem with lust, and so that may explain the number of children.

Bill you will note has no beard, therefore he has no lust and is pure in heart and mind.

Wait...that's the reason Gothard was against beards? My family was in ATI for about 15 years and I never was able to figure out why facial hair was bad. What did he say the connection was between facial hair and lust?

well tom cruise IS pretty crazy about his beliefs. oh wait, he's just crazy. oh wait, that's another thing they have in common.

Yes, facial hair is bad; I've got hair on my back, wonder what Bill makes of that?

I thought that they said beards were about rebelliousness, as in,

"Take that hair off your chin."
"Why?"
"See, you are a Rebel and won't do what your authorities command."

As to Mel wearing a beard, it shouldn't come as a surprise. After all, William Wallace was a rebel. He tried to get the Scottish authorities to rebel, and when they didn't, he rebelled against them AND the English. Rebelling against the English, of course, is even worse than normal rebellion, because the English are blessed by the godly heritage of William Blackstone.

As further proof of Wallace's wickedness, think about the fact that the one true Bible, the King James Version, wasn't written until Great Britain was re-united (under, naturally, King James) and Wallace's evil heritage was erased. By his rebellious nature, as expressed by wearing a beard, Mel Gibson single-handedly kept the Bible from being written for over three hundred years.

We were in ATI for 17 years, and my Dad had a moustache the entire time. (So that's why we got wierd looks at Knoxville)I never heard the thing about facial hair.
That comment was a stroke of genius.

On the subject of facial hair, Bill has been very clear on this point: if a man has a beard, then he man has a problem with lust...unless...of course...he has a conviction...in which case...he does not have a problem with lust. Gosh, Bill's such a genius!
