True Catholic TraditionalistSociety
Mel Gibson Shakes Hands with the Devil to Take the Unsuspecting on a Trip to Hell
The True Catholic Traditionalist Society calls upon Mel Gibson to immediately renounce soul damning ecumenicalism and to publicly and incontrovertibly state that salvation without membership in the Church is impossible and then spend a lot of time in the Confessional. Furthermore we call up all Catholic traditionalists to boycott Gibson until Gibson denounces all heresy.
Gibson directed and produced the new film The Passion of the Christ, which documents the crucifixion of our Lord Jesus Christ. The filmmaker intends for viewers of the picture to understand "the enormity of [the] sacrifice" of Christ, but in promoting the picture Gibson has
According to a story by Bob Baker and William Lobdell that first appeared in the January 30 edition of The Los Angeles Times, "Gibson's production company... is courting the [Christian] market by hiring several Christian marketing companies to work various segments of the potential audience. The best known is a Vista, Calif., company called Outreach Inc."
Outreach Inc. describes itself as "a non-denominational ministry that works with all Bible believing Christian churches that embrace traditional Christian theology."
There is no mention of the necessity of belong to the one true Church on either the homepage of Outreach Inc. or on the site this group of heretics have set up specifically to promote The Passion of the Christ.
The producers of the film have also screened the The Passion of the Christ to "churches" that are not part of the One True Church, according to an article in the January 31 edition of the radical leftist British newspaper The Guardian. (It cannot be ruled out that some of these outfits may even explicitly reject the One True Church.
These same "churches" are already planning to use this movie to spread their falsehoods. There is the risk that many will go from merely being disobedient to God to actively working against Him!
Like the members of The True Catholic Traditionalist Society, Gibson practices traditional Catholicism. We reject that Vatican II was infallible and condemn the many errors and heresies of John Paul II. We affirm the true and infallible traditional teachings of the Catholic Church, knowing that the Dogmas of Faith should never change.
We are adherents and members of One True Church. Most importantly, we understand, "Outside the Church there is no salvation." Non-members go directly to purgatory or whatever the hell we believe in. These facts are clear to all who can read as each appears on no less than 19% of the pages of the Bible.
Gibson was a follower of these truths until very recently. His Latin public service advertisements for us consistently rank amongst the most popular PSAs done for any group in a dead language. In an interview with The New Yorker last year, Gibson says salvation can only come through membership in the Church. "There is no salvation for those outside the Church." And, more recently Gibson has said that his wife, a heretic of the Episcopalian variety, will not be saved.
What explains Gibson's change of heart and embrace of Satan?
We have to believe that, like many men before him, Satan's promise of a little gold in his pocket has corrupted him so that he now rejects God's message. While we pray that Gibson returns to the fold, this example shows how just how dark and evil Lucifer really is. This fallen angel seeks to capture us at every point in our lives. From the pits of hell he probably saw Gibson making a movie that would bring people to Salvation and decided to tempt Gibson. It is only through God's One True Church that we can defeat this evil.
