My wife reminded me that we know two VIPs in the arts, an actor and a singer. The singer is a man I know quite well because I meet him once a month for lunch. We’re not friends; I would call our relationship a "close acquaintance". Now, I know this guy is homophobic. I mean he really hates gays. A lot. I recently saw him on a TV show where the concept is to visit a famous person’s first home, or the home that marked his youth. On the show, my "close acquaintance" was taken to his childhood home and got to see the inside. The present owners - whom he met on TV - were girly gays. By this I mean they are the type of homosexuals that leave no doubt as to their sexual orientation. As I watched the show, I smiled as my singer acquaintance chatted amiably and joked around with the two locas. I laughed out loud knowing full well what he really thought of people like them.I still don’t get it! wrote: ↑Sat Jan 11, 2020 11:41 am
There's a difference. Let me put it this way.
Do you go to church? Let's pretend you do.
Let's say your old pastor retired and a new guy took over. He starts off well but soon goes on rants about black people and stirs racial divide in his sermons.
Would you stay in such a church? Let alone stay in it for years on end?
I know I wouldn't and surely any right minded person probably wouldn't either, but what say you? ...
Now, this is something you obviously don’t understand even though I’ve explained it to you before. Let me try again: people in the public eye do things to further their careers because their success depends on their public’s perception of them.. So, my singer with the two girly gays, Obama with his crazed black pastor and Trump with the pretty pastorette are doing what is expected of them by their public, their fans. It may have nothing - nothing! - to do with what they actually think is "correct". They don’t act the way someone like you or I will act because they have different motivations. Get it???
