What is all this carry on (controversy) about "Brokeback Mountain"? My goodness, they are acting like 12-year-olds. Get a life - what is this the dark ages?
Why? Because we (Joe American) don't feel like watching two gay cowboys? I think most Americans couldn't care less. I live in a small, rural, midwest town. Yup, pick up trucks and shotguns are required equipment (just kidding). Anyway, the local movie theater started showing Brokeback Mountain and guess what? Wasn't a big deal. Nothing happened. No protest. No comments from local churches. Nothing. Nada. People go to movies to be entertained. If Brokeback Mountain is your kind of movie, cool, go for it. Personally I have very little free time and I choose to see something else. Does that mean "I'm acting like a 12 year old"?
With 10,000 Muslims protesting in the U.K this past weekend and with a national I.D. card about to be issued for every Brit, I'd say you guys have enough to worry about without being worried about us.
FYI - I watch Fox news and the BBC (via BBC America). BBC's coverage of international events is much better - I'll give you that.
