I’m surprised I haven’t seen any comments here about Bill’s godless 2 cents at the Oscars. It was great, except for the silence that fell on the crowd after his shout out, aside from a few crickets chirping in the distance. Even liberal Hollywood, who cheered for the Milk acceptance speeches and the anti-prop 8 statements, didn’t seem to back Bill’s jokes. How come when the religious demonize homosexuals it starts a heated debate, but when someone calls out religion, everybody clams up and looks at their shoes? Why don’t people make the connection that homophobes = the religious? I just don’t get it.
