No more Tom Cruise

In an effort to silence the constant babbling regarding everything Tom Cruise, I decided to shift celebrity talk. I would like to take a moment to comment on Hutton Gibson, father to Mel Gibson. Good ole' snopes provides information regarding the radical ideas running around in this man's head. And yes, most of the rumors are true. I'll summarize below but here is the actual article: http://www.snopes.com/politics/religion/gibson.asp.
Fact one: Hutton denies the occurrence of the Holocaust
Fact two: believes the World Trade center destroyed by remote control--not due to Al Queda
Fact three: finds the past popes to be "illigitimate anti-popes"--whatever that means
Fact four: has some anti-semetic opinion of the second Vatican council, andthat Jews wish to
take over the world with their religion, or something to that effect

So, ah, the reason I find this interesting is because conspiracy theories range from drawing slight skepticism to drawing extremely confident disbelief.

Here is an article pulling quotes from Hutton himself: http://www.adelaideinstitute.org/Conference/sacramento117.htm.

If you google Hutton Gibson, you'll find numerous cites quoting fairly looney accusations made by this man.

And I thought my parents were embarassing... Firstly how does Hutton Gibson know what is required to cremate a human body? And this man is 85, is he senile? That seems like a legitimate possibility. Under what auspices was he being interview, as an authority on something, or to embarass and discredit Mel?
