Nobody even knew of Gibson's involvement until a reporter dug up financial records naming him as its director. Curious about the secretive Church of Riggs, the reporter was invited to attend a service on the condition that he neither speak to anyone present nor identify them.
After those ominous warnings, it was kind of a letdown to discover that the service was nothing but a more hardcore version of the normal Catholic Church. It was conducted in Latin, and all women were required to wear veils and long skirts. The only real oddity came at the end of the service, when the priest unleashed a vaguely threatening rant against "the modern church." So far, the entire faith consists of about 70 people. They're really going to have to pump up those numbers if we're ever going to see a Mad Max Popemobile.
Liam Neeson Loves Horse-Drawn Carriages
Taking a ride on a horse-drawn carriage used to be a dashing way to show someone a good time. But much like diamond rings and promposals, people have slowly realized that this seemingly romantic gesture is actually pretty horrifying. The horses are expected to carry unusually heavy loads, on city streets, for hours on end -- an ordeal that occasionally kills them. While many major cities -- including Beijing, Toronto, and London -- have banned the practice, New York City has quietly ignored the controversy. After all, without Central Park carriage rides, why would anyone ever visit the Big Apple?
Never fear, the second-worst Jean Valjean is here to fight for your right to romance horses to death. According to Neeson, the numerous carriage drivers who are inexplicably close personal friends of his would be rendered destitute by the fall of the industry, because it would be impossible for them to sign up with Lyft or, like, learn another job.
