Am I being too hard on people?
I don't know about you, but it bugs me when celebrities voice their political views. If there is an actor/actress that I really enjoy watching in films or on TV, and then I hear them speaking out against the President or against Christian values, then I no longer have the desire to be entertained by them. So, am I being too hard on them? I mean, they are entitled to their opinions just as I am entitled to mine. I'm sure I might have said some things to people in the past that changed their opinion of me either good or bad. The latest celebrity turn-off for me is Anne Hathaway. She is in a few movies that the I really enjoy, especially Ella Enchanted. But now that she has openly shared her disgust with Rick Warren praying at the inauguration, I just want to brush her off. Not that Rick Warren is a close personal friend of mine. It's more the principle of having a Christian PRAY at the inauguration. Then there are the AFA alerts that I receive. The latest one being that Campbell's soup has decided "not to remain neutral" on the homosexual agenda. I don't agree with homosexuality, but homosexuals gotta eat, too, right? I don't know. How far do we take these things? I want to stand up for what is right, but then again I don't want to sweat the small stuff, you know? Maybe I'm reading too much into it all in the first place.
