Hutton Gibson (born August 26, 1918) is the father of actor Mel Gibson and a writer on religion. He was born in Peekskill, New York, and served as a US Army Officer during World War II after graduation from an OCS program.
Gibson is a member of the "traditionalist" Holy Family sect of the Catholic Church, which believes that the Mass should still be said in Latin and that the reforms of the Second Vatican Council are in error. Gibson holds that the Second Vatican Council was a secret anti-Christian plot by both Masons and Jews. Gibson also holds to other conspiracy theories, such as his claim that the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks were not carried out by mostly Saudi Arabian Muslims onboard the plane, but rather were carried out by "remote control" by a different party.
Gibson denies commonly accepted aspects of the Jewish Holocaust, claiming that it is impossible for the Holocaust to have happened as described, since, in his view, there would be no way to get rid of so many bodies. He claims that "There weren't even that many Jews in all of Europe", and says that there were more Jews in Europe after World War II, statements disputed by almost all historians (charts of world Jewish population show a steep dip between the 1920s and the 1950s). In support of his father, Mel Gibson claims that his father's beliefs do not amount to Holocaust denial. (Mel Gibson says he will not speak out publicly against his father.)
He publishes a quarterly newsletter entitled The War is Now!
- The Enemy is Here!
- Is the Pope Catholic?, 1978
