from FOXNews.com: "Mel Gibson Sinks $8 Million More Into Controversial Church"
Mel Gibson is not losing his religion. He keeps investing his "Passion of the Christ" money into the church he built in Agoura Hills, Calif.
Last year, Gibson parked another $8.2 million in his AP Reilly Foundation, the tax-free entity that takes care of his Holy Family Catholic Church.
Gibson's church is not recognized by the Roman Catholic Church because it does not acknowledge the authority of the pope or the Vatican or the reforms associated with Vatican II. Gibson and many of his fellow congregants are Holocaust deniers, as is Gibson's father, who has been known to contribute to neo-Nazi publications.
Gibson, nevertheless, perseveres. According to a federal tax filing obtained exclusively by this column, the foundation now has $30 million in its coffers, up from $22 million last year.
