Stephen Baldwin, the youngest of the acting Baldwin brothers and former star in a movie entitled "Threeway" (see the photo at left) - to whom time has been way less than kind (see the photo below) -has been whining in a Wall Street Journal interview about “a very small minority” persecuting the majority of Americans who do not - at least according to Baldwin who seems a tad too invested in the whole issue, if you know what I mean - support equality for LGBT citizens. and same sex marriage in particular. Apparently, to Baldwin, the U. S. Constitution's promise of equal protection and protection from religious based discrimination means nothing. Rather, it's all about the sensibilities of bigots and those who perhaps like Baldwin are not all that comfortable with their own sexuality. Here are some highlights from the Advocate on this whiner's drivel:*
Gay people seeking equal marriage rights are “a very small minority” asking the majority of Americans to change their ways, conservative actor-director Stephen Baldwin says in new online video interview.
“For society, and a majority of our society, to be asked by a very small minority to change its ways — and everybody can interpret that for themselves; that can be constitutional, that can be by law, that can be by faith — the homosexual community wants to go and start its own churches and get married, they’re free to do that,” Baldwin tells Lee Hawkins in the interview, posted on The Wall Street Journal’s website.
He does not address the lack of rights caused by the lack of legal recognition of same-sex unions, but he suggests he may lose out on some Hollywood job offers because of his stance.
I suspect that should Baldwin lose out on some job offers, his "stance" will have little to do with it. I'd venture it's more due to the fact that he's fat and ugly - physical characteristics that seem to perfectly match his ugly bigotry.
