Firstly newspapers……We rely on them supposedly for news, we dont always get it though, we get their version of the truth which is mostly far from the truth. However one thing is for sure, its certainly isnt worth chopping down trees so the newspapers can write and print the shit they do.
Reporters and columnists…. a group of ethicless opinionated people who will say anything to get their stories read regardless of who they hurt or offend.
This leads me to my blog. The latest hurtfull stories being bounded around concerns Heath Ledger. A female columnist with the New York Post has started the latest agony for the Ledger family with her poison reporting which then inspires the those for stories and those against which leads to the prolonging of the sadness and the agony of their sons death. What possible satisfaction could Ms Angrea Peyser get from causing more grief to the family and close friends and how on earth would she know what his thoughts were. As for her comments on his character the words she used “reckless,greedy and selfish” seem to fit her own character exactly. WHY CANT EVERYONE JUST LET THE GUY REST IN PEACE and leave his family daughter and friends to grieve with dignity.
The passing on of Heath Ledger is without doubt a very sad happening, so much sorrow for his family and close friends and all those who enjoyed his work, which he did so well as an actor.
With this sadness in mind Im having my say on an article that has reached the internet via a Sydney radio station and inspired by the words of a parishoner from the Baptist Church of Topeka in Kansas USA. Im not going to dwell on her words or even repeat anything she said because thats not what I find disturbing. What disturbs me is, this person actually goes to church presumably to pray to god or jesus or whoever the Baptist Church regard as their boss. So what does he teach, what message is passed on to baptists that makes them so awful and hurtful to people at a time when they are so sad and vulnerable. Why would you want to go out of your way to contact a radio station to vent your poison in the name of a church for everyone to hear or read about on the internet. This church is actually going to picket any memorial service in his rememberance because he played the part of a homosexual cowboy and by doing that he has to be a supporter of gay people. What a terrible crime he committed, an actor who played the part of someone else and therefor has to be punished by the baptist church. Am I to believe that all baptist think the same I guess they do if that is what is preached to them. Over the years of film making actors have played many parts, Hitler comes to mind and countless cold bloodied murderers, I dont recall hearing or reading anything about the Topekan religious nutjobs complaining about the actors supporting the people they portrayed or picketing the movie theatres to show their disgust. One could go on and on about this so called church and Baptists and anyone that goes to church with all the smiles and graces and thinks a visit to the church on sunday and a session with the bible gives them the right to feel holier than thou, when in fact they are just plain EVIL……..god forgive.
