You know how it was both alarming and sort of impressive, in a scary way, when Mel Gibsonsimply accepted responsibility for his actions the other night -- including the anti-Semitic words -- rather than making excuses, or insisting that his statements didn't represent his true beliefs? Well, scratch that. Gibson statement #2 has arrived, and it's all about how he not only doesn't hate Jews ("Hatred of any kind goes against [his] faith," don't forget), but would in fact like to "meet with leaders in the Jewish community, with whom [he] can have a one on one discussion to discern the appropriate path for healing." Oh, and he wants that community "to help [him] on [his] journey through recovery," presumably both AA and the kind without 12 steps.

And also, just in case you thought this was about Mel Gibson spewing Anti-Semitic beliefs, it's really "... about real life and recognizing the consequences hurtful words can have. It's about existing in harmony in a world that seems to have gone mad." I don't know about you, but I feel much better about the whole thing now.
