Politics don't bother me. We all have a right to be whatever and I respect the fact that people have different politics than I do. What gets me about Cruise and Gibson is their smugness over their beliefs and their total arrogance in that what they believe is right and the rest of us wrong. Now that bothers me. And with them its mostly religion, not politics that they spout off about. Again, what religion you are doesn't bother me, unless you are smug about it and do not think anyone else has the right to have a differing opinion or differing religion.Originally Posted by MsFroggy;2190517;
And that is why I won't watch their movies anymore. Just sick to death of them, especially Cruise as he was so much in the news and so much of it was so whacko and I really don't like the racist thing with Gibson.
I have tried very hard to be a tolerant person both in race, religion and politics. I have my own views, and I am willing to listen to opposing views as an open mind learns more than a closed one. But both of these idiots have extremely narrow minds and use their status to try to force their views on others and that really gets me. I would never force my view on anyone. I might enjoy a civilized debate with someone who has a different view, but I wouldn't try to shove it down their throats. And if you believe differently than me, then so be it. It's a free country and we're allowed (at least I think we are, have to look at that Patriot Act again) to express those views. But I just want my views respected and I will respect yours. But some celebrities don't do that at all. Several come to mind here.
