What is it with Hollywood types? Though they earn bucketfuls of money, live lives full of indulging their senses at every opportunity and are among the prettiest folks on the planet, that is not enough. What they really want is to be taken seriously whenever they open their perfectly toothed mouths. They want the world to clap and applaud their opinions as wildly as it claps and applauds their movie roles.

I regret to inform these Beautiful People that such an event will never occur. One can put money on the fact that when a Hollywood type gives some interview about anything under the sun save his own profession, that he will show the world why the words ignorant, imbecile and fool were coined.

The reason is that actors and actresses spend their entire lives pretending to be someone else. It thus becomes impossibly difficult for most of them to truly be a real person. When they do make the attempt to actually live a real life off-camera and beyond the stage, they stumble about in confusion. We see the results of this all through their lives—divorce, adulteries, sexual perversion, genital adventurism, drug abuse, alcoholism and infantilism.

They are living proof that money and fame and talent do not translate into reason, coherence and wisdom—to say nothing of shame and discernment. They are only completely reliable in their ability to play the public ape.

Well we recall the late Heath Ledger of recent Joker fame. He was a perfect example of your Hollywood type, full of talent yet empty of head. After making his pro-sodomy flick Brokeback Mountain he inflicted upon the public these Deep Thoughts.

Personally, I don’t think the movie is [controversial] but I think maybe the Mormons in Utah do. I think it’s hilarious and very immature of a society,” Ledger said in The Herald Sun. “I heard a while ago that West Virginia was going to ban it but that’s a state that was lynching people only 25 years ago so that’s to be expected.”

Hollywood types really enjoy lecturing normal folks about morality, though they themselves indulge in wild abandon, moral nihilism and debauchery. Such a lifestyle killed off Ledger, which had the redeeming effect of ending his silly tirades.

The latest Hollywood imbecile to lecture the rest of us is Daniel Radcliffe, star of Harry Potter. Amazingly, the callow lad is even less coherent than Ledger. He offers his views on that favorite subject of the rich and famous, sodomy.

20-year-old Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe has, in an interview with a homosexual magazine, expressed anger and intolerance for parents who oppose education about homosexual sex in the classroom.

He shares with Ledger the same view of anal sex between men, though Radcliffe is a bit cruder on that refined and delicate subject.

Then there’s all this stuff at the moment, which is hateful, about people being up in arms about the idea of gay sex education in schools. Hello!?! Actually for the one or two gay kids in the class, it’s f***ing vital! It really makes me angry…I just loathe homophobia. It’s just disgusting and animal and stupid and it’s just thick people who can’t get their heads around it and are just scared…I’m not just saying that because I’m being interviewed for Attitude. I’d be using a lot stronger language if this wasn’t on tape.

Well, that’s good to know!

To measure the quality of Radcliffe’s ability to reason coherently, I present you with this.

Radcliffe has stated that he is an atheist, as well as that he is “very proud of being Jewish.”

Just for the record, here is an account of that activity praised by Radcliffe. It was by written by a guy named Moses, who was no doubt also “very proud of being Jewish.”

You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination…If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall be put to death, their blood is upon them.— Lev. 18:22, 20:13

Now that I think of it, here is another account that includes that same habit, also written by a Jewish guy.

Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.—1 Cor. 6:9–10

In that one paragraph the entire lifestyle of our Hollywood Jet Set is condemned and tossed upon the fire.

So whom to believe? Those old Jewish guys or the esteemed, talented and wealthy Mr. Radcliffe?

Decisions, decisions.

Anyway, Radcliffe might have had a wee bit of a hint that his views were not taken seriously by the real world, so he did what Ledger did: He performed nude in front of the camera. That’ll show ‘em! Radcliffe chose the horse-porn stage play Equus to demonstrate his moral worth, his intellectual seriousness and his marvelous abs.

Enough already. Writing about public jackasses is tiring.

A pity there is no way to get these moral imbeciles to shut up. They will go on and on until they die normally or take the route Heath Ledger took.
