"I am not a bigot." So says Mel Gibson. Gibson released a statement today. He said, "There is no excuse, nor should there be any tolerance, for anyone who thinks or expresses any kind of Anti-Semitic remark."

His statement reads, in part: "I am not an anti-Semite. Hatred of any kind goes against my faith." He adds, "I want to apologize specifically to everyone in the Jewish community for the vitriolic and harmful words that I said to a law enforcement officer the night I was arrested on a D-U-I charge."

He continued that he assumes responsibility for his actions, and wants to meet with representatives from the Jewish community for one-on-one talks to find what he calls "the appropriate path for healing."

Gibson says he's in a program for recovery that he can't do alone.
