How did we miss the news that Mel Gibson is building a 400-seat church in Malibu? Or that the church--a "Holy Family Catholic Church"-- is costing Mel $37 million? Who knew that Mel even had a church to begin with? Reporters from Australia's Daily Telegraph (love it when foreign publications go after their own) dig up the planning documents for the church, which is apparently located "400m up the hill from the current building"; also, "it will seat about 400 when it is completed in the next 12 months."
