A week before Mel Gibson's movie about Jesus Christ, Passion of the Christ, hits theaters, his father has gone on an explosive rant against Jews - claiming they fabricated the Holocaust and are conspiring to take over the world. "They're after one world religion and one world government," Hutton Gibson, 85, said in a radio interview that will air Monday night.
"That's why they've attacked the Catholic Church so strongly, to ultimately take control over it by their doctrine."
In the bizarre interview, Gibson also said Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan should be lynched and called for the government to be overthrown.
