ANOTHER Village Has Lost Its Idiot

We are not going to debate Prop 8, that's not what this post is about. This is about FREEDOM, and your right to worship as you choose. The question here is: Do you believe in religious freedom for all, or just those who believe exactly as you believe? I believe in religious freedom for all, well unless you think I'm an infidel and want to blow me up.

In an effort to remain "safely ensconced" in my "bubble of self-affirmation" (that seriously had me laughing), only answer the above question if you fully agree with me...I just don't know if my fragile little, frail little ego can take the heat. HAAHAAHAAA (that's a sinister laugh in case you're wondering) Come on, you know I'm kidding. Are you laughing? No? Ohhhhh, please laugh, please!! How will I continue on if you don't laugh and tell me how wonderful I am?

Ok, so I digress. A lot. I do not care WHAT religion you belong to, IF any at all...this stuff is just plain lunacy!

Tom Hanks at the Big Love/HBO party: “The truth is this takes place in Utah, the truth is these people are some bizarre offshoot of the Mormon Church, and the truth is a lot of Mormons gave a lot of money to the church to make Prop 8 happen. There are a lot of people who feel that is un-American, and I am one of them. I do not like to see any discrimination codified on any piece of paper, any of the 50 states in America, but here's what happens now."

Nothing like a Hollywood hot air tank. This guy can twist it better than Chubby Checker. He randomly jumps from polygamous offshoots of the Mormon church in Utah (sidenote: these people may not be "offshoots"...they may, in fact, have never even been affiliated with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints) to California Mormons who lawfully and peacefully exercised their right to vote however they choose. Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints follow 13 Articles of Faith, one of which states a belief in "obeying, honoring, and sustaining the law".

Mr. Hanks is incorrect, the Mormon church did not make Prop 8 happen. (Yes, I do have the stats to back this, I will not be posting them all here. Inevitably, someone would just want to argue for argument's sake, and that just becomes waayyyyy boring.) And Mr. Hanks, if we're just haphazardly throwing around the unAmerican label, I think it's unAmerican to be a jerk, but that's not stoppin' you, now is it?

It's seriously time to start sleepin' with one eye open.
Next, we'll be labeled unAmerican for believing in Jesus Christ.
Wonder if it would be unAmerican to round up all the Hollywood hot air tanks and return them to their villages? Probably so, since even idiots have the right to free speech. It's a gift people, it really is.

My husband was just looking at the news and he mentioned Mr. Hanks had said something nasty about us. I guess I don't get him (Mr. Hanks, not my husband) anymore than he gets me.

Tom, Tom, Tom....for someone so bright your dimwit side has now been exposed...pinhead!

Wouldn't it be great if all the idiots could live in one village together? Oh wait, I think the majority of them have already begun that Hollywood!

mom said...

Sounds like Tommy Boy is "safely ensconced" in his own little bubble...the hot air one!

Man, I love the whole "ensconcing" number...that one was just too great! One we should all use when pompously pontificating!

Thank you for contacting me. I am so sorry for your loss. I am so sorry you had to go through losing your daughter. Hearing that you have made it through 12 years and 4 months gives me hope, and a lot of courage too. **HUG**

Hollywood has always been loaded with hypocriscy. They don't think twice about spending millions on backing their beliefs. Honestly, anyone of them can or would be able to spend as much if not more than the church spent on this issue.
I'm genuinely bummed that this ignorance came from Tom Hanks. Just proves to me that I truly can't take stock in anything that comes from his industry. What a worldy, misguided fool.

Love, love, love it. Over half the people in CA voted in favor of marriage between a man and a woman. I am almost certain that not half of the residents in CA are mormom. Idiot is a good word!
