No, I am talking about prop. 107, a ‘gay marriage’ referendum that was failed to pass by a slim margin. It then passed two years later by a larger margin than it failed by the first time, which was great.
“You shouldn’t speak until you know what you’re talking about. That’s why I get uncomfortable with interviews. Reporters ask me what I feel China should do about Tibet. Who cares what I think China should do? I’m a f’ng actor! They hand me a script. I act. I’m here for entertainment. Basically, when you whittle everything away, I’m a grown man who puts on makeup.” ` Brad Pitt, 1997
Right. What kind of judgement is it, on closer examination? If gay marriage is wrong - as I and all of us here presume, with good reason, it to be, then Pitt is saying something inherently wrong is inevitable. It’s like saying liver disease is inevitable in the alcoholic. Inevitable does NOT = right or good.
Great quote, too bad he forgot his former logic. (”Oh but I was so much older then, I’m younger than that now” (to quote an old song).
I have always been annoyed when Cher or Madonna or Martin Sheen or any actor presumes to wax forth on some war or political ideology. They should shut up and entertain. Acting/singing does not make one a political expert.
Actually, I was too young to “understand” the mentality of hippies in their prime time - the seventies and early eighties. But in my awake lifetime, it’s aways been almost half ‘n half for civilization and against civilization.
Conservatives, when they rose up with Reagan and engaged the amorals (liberals/hippies), made headway to save a lot of “if it feels good do it” mindless idiots. They argued scientifically - based on social data of outcomes amongst the major dark and light choices in life - that liberals tried to hide and named politically incorrect. For my part of this generation, we had a clear understanding of choices and their statistical consequences.
Thanks to conservatives, it was not just Christian faith. It was faith measured by science. And God is not stupid. If He told us to avoid certain patterns, ideology and behaviors, do it. It’s transferable to science data in outcomes. EVERY time.
