I agree with you. People get so ingrained in cultural norms that it's hard to think outside them.
We eat cows without blinking an eye, but most people, when asked if they'd eat a dog or cat would say, "Ewwww! That's Grossss"! When there's
really no difference. It's just a cultural taboo.
If people want to eat their placenta, I have NOT ONE problem with it. As long as they don't try to make me eat it. To each his own.
I don't happen to think Tom Cruise is any weirder than the next person. He just talks about personal things and expects that the average American
will understand. That's his mistake, in my opinion. Expecting the average American to see him with compassion instead of such a critical eye.
I really dont care about his religion, but it's no worse than the millions of Christians who try to convince other people that their way is the right
way. He feels passionate about it. What's so weird about that? Who cares who he worships or what machines he hooks himself up to? No me.
Oh, and I heard Katie wants to have the kid baptized Catholic and he's fighting it. Also he wants her to sign an agreement that if they split, he
gets full custody. And they're not even married yet!
