Mel Gibson hasn't been on his best behaviour for quite some time. The actor/director has been all up in our punims with his anti-semitic productions (hello, The Power of the Christ
), his racist rants (hello, Jewish cops), drunken grossness (hello, barely legal girls) and general douchebaggery. We're not so sure God is boasting about this particular celebrity believer at Friday night drinks with Allah, Vishnu and L. Ron Hubbard.
