I just found out about Heath Ledger’s passing. There are few details right now, but regardless of what is found out, it is still a sad occurrence.
What I’m wondering is this—How long will it be before some right-wing nut calls his death divine punishment for Ledger playing a gay cowboy in Brokeback Mountain? You know it will probably happen, I know it will probably happen, but there is nothing we can do to stop it.
Unfortunately, there are some who claim to speak for God when, in fact, they should just keep their ignorant, hurtful comments to themselves.
My prayers go out to Ledger’s family and friends during this trying time. May they find help and hope in the arms of God.
