Well that was rude, Mr. Jackson, not to mention categorically untrue. I guess it wasn’t as rude as Tom Hanks’ “un-American” comment, but that doesn’t make it any less mistaken. I personally don’t take kindly to being called an ill-led sheep, though I suppose I’ve been called worse (much worse). The funny thing is that in calling Mormons misinformed, he has also labeled any other religious, non-religious, black, Asian, Hispanic, poor, rich, young, or old person who voted for Prop 8, “misinformed.” Why? Because we all voted yes for the same reason. We all believe that marriage between a man and a woman is deserving of special recognition and protections over any other attempted redefinition. So, Mr. Star-Studded Samuel L. Jackson, you’ve just called 6,838,107 Californian citizens “misinformed” simply because you disagree with them. How brilliantly “celebrity” of you.
Samuel Jackson weights in on Mormon support for Prop 8
