Dude is spitting FIRE over such heavenly questions!
Mel Gibson was leaving an LA restaurant when he was asked what he thought about Pope Benedict XVI's recent resignation (above)…
And the controversial actor, who is apparently now besties with the likes of Jonah Hill and Leonardo DiCaprio, is so NOT surprised by the Pope's decision, stating "it's happened before."
Yeah… about 600 years ago!!
And isn't Mel supposed to be super religious? Hmmm!
