I think actors in general are pretty smart people. People say "why do we care what actors think?" Well when it comes to it politicians and actors
are the same, so they really do have something to contribute, they know em better than anyone else!
And many of them probably see through their
"I happen to be a BIG Matt Damon fan, and have watched all his movies, but after this interview, I won't be patronizing any of his future theatrical
contributions. Actors should act, not make public political commentaries.
His dismissal of her worthiness as a candidate because she's from a small town and a Christian is appalling. I wouldn't have expected it from him
honestly. And "No", I don't believe dinosaurs walked the Earth 4,000 ago, and I doubt Governor Palin does either.
Mocking someone's religious beliefs is neither clever or amusing. He should stick to doing movies..He's much better at it."
Sounds like the people that stopped watching Tom Cruise after some of the things he did. Just like you say he should stick to acting and not being a
commentator, you should stick to watching movies you like and not get involved in his opinions. It's rediculous to boycott a person like that, sort
of like the Dixie Chicks after the loud one said something mean about Bush, a lot of radio banned her. People need to get over these things, they
have opinions just like other people and often times they're more informed than the average person.
About her not being worthy because she's from a small town and being christian, thats BS. He critized her because she was the mayor of a small town,
being up the fact that she doesnt have a lot of experience. And you think he discriminates against her for being Christian? well he probably is
christian so that doesn't even make sense. Even if he wasn't, to believe that the world is only 4000 years old and that dinos exsisted not too long
ago is rediculous and someone who is living so contrary to what is scientifically validated to have happened is a bit scarey. There are psychological
evaluations for stock brokers, police officers, astronauts ect. but you think its unreasonable to have a certain standard for someone who has access
to nukes? Would you say the same about Amadinejad who possibly under his religious beliefs wants to bring about a world war to bring back the hidden
Imam? Some of these religious extremists think that by bringing war, jesus might come back and I don't want anyone like that as president.
Its not ment to be clever but to bring out a point.
