Gibson was born in Peekskill, New York as one of eleven children, but raised in Australia from the age of twelve. He maintained his U.S. citizenship.
Following a victory on the
Jeopardy game show, Gibson's father Hutton moved his family to Australia in 1968 in protest of the Vietnam War and because he believed that changes in American society were immoral. Some people have attacked Hutton Gibson for his traditional Catholic religious views and political opinions, but Mel Gibson has made a number of public statements recently supporting him. A Roman Catholic, Gibson has donated money to finance the construction of a traditional Catholic chapel in Malibu, California called Holy Family.


The Passion of the Christ
Mel Gibson recently completed
The passion of the Christ,, a film in aramic and Hebrew, and Latin, which recounts what Gibson describes as the last twelve hours of the life of Jesus Christ. The movie has received praise from many Christians and some Jews (e.g. Michael Medved, Steven Waldman), but has also been criticised by some liberal Christian and Jewish scholars, some of whom have claimed it may promote anti-semitism and, in their historico-critical view of the Christian Bible, contains errors. A committee of inter-faith scholars assembled by the Anti-Defamation League, a Jewish civil-rights group that attempted to amend the script, had those attempts rebutted by Gibson. For a further discussion, see a separate article on The Passion of Christ. The Anti-Defamation League publicly criticised Gibson's film. The Catholic League, also a civil rights group, has said that the Anti-Defamation League tries to poison relations between Catholics and Jews.
Gibson was asked if his movie would be offensive to Jews today; his response was "It's not meant to. I think it's meant to just tell the truth. I want to be as truthful as possible. But when you look at the reasons Christ came, he was crucified—he died for all mankind and he suffered for all mankind. So that, really, anyone who transgresses has to look at their own part or look at their own culpability."
Gibson originally claimed that this movie was based solely on the
New Testament. Some have more more recently claimed that it is informed by the writings of a 19th-century nun, Anne Catherine Emmerich, whose writings were accused of promoting anti-semitism. Gibson refutes this, claiming he has indeed tried to base his movie on the Gospels.


Gibson's politics and opinions























Gibson's political viewpoints, while lauded by conservatives, have been described by some liberal groups variously as 'conservative' and 'far right'. Gay rights groups have accused him of
homophobia for his conservative Catholic views of homosexuality. His conservative political views and support of Traditional Catholic beliefs have led to charges of anti-semitism, charges that increased following his making of the Gospel-based movie The Passion of the Christ. Even liberals have come out in support for Gibson, claiming that traditional Catholicism is not in itself anti-Semitic, and Gibson has no record of intolerence towards Jews or other ethnic groups.
