Perhaps as a counterpoint to has-been actor Kirk Cameron, Piers Morgan welcomed director Kevin Smith (Red State) onto his CNN chat show last night. The outspoken filmmaker spoke candidly about how irritated he gets with judgmental fundamentalists (us too), especially when they go after gay people like his brother:
“My brother’s a great guy—goes to church [and] doesn’t screw anybody over, and yet he’s still got some religious yahoos and politicos over to the side going: ‘Change your ways or you’re going to hell,’” Smith said. “Stay out of my brother’s bedroom, buddy. Like I don’t know what else to tell you. He’s a good dude, as are most people in this world.”
Later, Smith discussed how he felt presidential hopeful Rick Santorum really jumped the shark when he went after porn:
“Santorum lost it the moment he was like, ‘I’m going after pornography.’ Because for a lot of us, [we’re] like ‘Buddy, that’s all I got!’”
Like, right after prayer in school and job creation, access to porn is the number one thing most Republicans care about.
