I can appreciate what you are saying, but I see it this way.
Stephanie Meyer, author of the Twilight books, is a Mormon. She made millions from her teen paranormal romance books, and Mormons give a percent of
their income to their church. The Mormons funded Proposition 8 (something I felt very strongly about, as it affected people I love very much).
Though my money wouldn't have made much of a difference either way, as they would have funded regardless, I couldn't feel right knowing some of the
profits of the book or merch, or movies I was buying, was helping to hurt the gay community.
I know it sounds petty, but really, it's a personal thing. I'm not saying I HATE Tom Cruise, I said before, I really like his movies and I will
watch them, but I won't pay to watch them, and I won't buy them.
