Isaiah Washington was fired from Gray's Anatomy last week, and not because of professional or monetary reasons, but because of his purported words about gay co-star TR Knight, according to this report in the New York Times:
The executive, who asked not to be identified because he was not authorized to speak for the production, said that the decision was tied to Mr. Washington’s comments regarding his fellow cast member, T.R. Knight.Washington understandably wasn't happy, and went all Howard Beale on us.
I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore.Remember when stars would have to hide their homosexuality or have fake marriages? And how homosexuals complain today that this was unjust. Apparently it wasn't about justice or the freedom to be as one wishes, but about turning the tables. Now "homophobia" (even dubiously-charged "homophobia," in this case) is the new "homosexuality."
Gay-rights advocacy is reaching its logical conclusion -- everybody must accept that homosexuality is moral and good, upon penalty of every consequence the homosex activists and their enablers can inflict. It's not, and in the long run never could be, about "tolerance."
