5 male celebrities I support, and why
LifeSiteNews ^ | 21 Dec 2011 | KRISTEN WALKER

December 21, 2011 (LiveAction.org) - Recently I wrote about five male celebrities I boycott for their pro-abortion views. Today, I’ll tell you about five famous men whose careers I can feel good about supporting, because they believe in and profess the sanctity of life.

Keep in mind I may disagree with them on other issues. But because I believe abortion is the ultimate moral litmus test, if they recognize the evil of abortion, I know their moral compass is pointed in the right direction.

I do not support any celebrities, they are all scummy to me.

Just by their silence they approve of the smut and immoral cesspool that is the entertainment industry

Women who have abortions would make lousy mothers...

Interesting list.

Mel Gibson, Jack Nicholson, Ben Stein, and two actors I’ve never heard of, but have interesting bios.

Okay, Mel Gibson is pro-life. For that, I admire his courage. However, he is also a bit... shall we say, crazy. He left his wife and children, hooked up with some Russian no sing talent, had a child with her, beat the crap out of his new girlfriend.... and I am not going to even get into the whole “sugar T*ts incident”. So, yes, he is pro-life but he isn’t a person that I would want to be associated with personally.

Besides playing Christ, Jim Caviezel starred in The Thin Red Line and The Count of Monte Cristo among other films, and is the star of Person if Interest; a pretty good CBS crime show.

Some of the coments on the site were interesting. One pointed out that being "pro-life" means nothing if you continually help elect pro-abortion candidates.

Interesting article. Never knew that about Nicholson’s lineage, but it probably goes a long way to explaining why he is like he is :)

And Jim Caviezel keeps going up the list of my “must see” actors, not only for his abilities in front of the screen, but equally for his “talk the talk and walk the walk” attitude about what he believes.

The whole article was interesting. She didn’t approve of everything about each person, just was commenting on their anti abortion stance. It was a good article.

His new show, Person of Interest is pretty good. I watch it because of him.

I will say that I imagine holding any conservative view in Hollywood is difficult at best. I was surprised that the one actor on CSI wasn’t mentioned.

Yup, forgot to mention the show. It's on my DVR series list, though I generally watch it live on Thursday nights. It will be interesting to watch going forward to see how things develop between him and the woman detective that's been hunting him all along. Or maybe she was just repaying the favor in the last episode...

I couldn’t remember his name at the moment. Gary Sinise. Conservative and adorable!

I do like Capt. Dan! She didn’t mention him at all.

I have kind of wondered all season if she is ultimately going to be part of the team at least to some extent.

Pedophilia is apparently endemic in the entertainment business, everything from acting to modeling. The old “sleep their way to the top” didn’t just apply to adults.

Nobody is beyond redemption. Women can learn from their mistakes, repent, and become wonderful mothers.
My daughter is living proof. She is now a wise and loving mother of two, and I am very proud of her.

I agree with Caviezel and Verastegui (who is not exactly unheard of).

Gary Sinise of CSI: New York. (I pinged back once I researched the name. I had one of those senior moments!)

The thing is you find many (all?) people that were adopted, being Pro-Life.

I do not doubt it at all. And in fact, it doesn’t surprise me to hear it. It’s a vile industry, all you have to do is watch most of what the churn out.

I dont look for leadership from Hollywood types. It may be good to see that there are a few semi-normal people in Hollywood,but in the end,it dont matter to me.
Leadership can only be found in the Founding Fathers. They built the damn system so they know what they meant.
