Uber Catholic Mel Gibson told the Herald Sun of Australia that he believes his wife, an Episcopalian, will be going to hell:

"There is no salvation for those outside the Church. I believe it...Put it this way. My wife is a saint. She’s a much better person than I am. Honestly. She’s, like, Episcopalian, Church of England. She prays, she believes in God, she knows Jesus, she believes in that stuff. And it’s just not fair if she doesn’t make it, she’s better than I am. But that is a pronouncement from the chair. I go with it.”


Which reminded Gothamist of the classic Seinfeld episode, The Burning, where Elaine is aghast to find out that boyfriend David Puddy is religious (he listens to Christian stations and has a Jesus fish on his car):

Elaine: Oh. So, you're pretty religious?
Puddy: That's right.
Elaine: So is it a problem that I'm not really religious?
Puddy: Not for me.
Elaine: Why not?
Puddy: I'm not the one going to hell.
Elaine: David, I'm going to hell! The worst place in the world! With devils and those caves and the ragged clothing! And the heat! My god, the heat! I mean, what do you think about all that?
Puddy: Gonna be rough.
Elaine: Uh, you should be trying to save me!
Puddy: Don't boss me! This is why you're going to hell.

If only The Passion of the Christ would be as good as The Silliness of the Seinfeld.
