Unhinged blowback on Brokeback actress
San Diego has freaks into homo-condemnation by association, once removed. Michelle Williams, Academy Award nominee in the supporting actress category for Brokeback Mountain for playing the wife of a gay sheepherder, has incurred the wrath of Solana Beach’s Santa Fe Christian. She attended elementary and middle school there, and the headmaster is having a conniption over her participation in Brokeback.
Carla Williams is ecstatic about her daughter’s success: “She’s sweet, she has a heart, I’m so proud of her.”
Not so proud is Santa Fe Christian headmaster Jim Hopson. “We don’t want to have anything to do with her in relation to that movie,” said Hopson, who turned down a request from a Union-Tribune reporter to visit the school and chat with students about the movies and one of their own being up for an Academy Award.
“Michelle doesn’t represent the values of this institution. We would not approve of her movies and TV shows (including the teen drama “Dawson’s Creek”). We’d not like to be tied to ‘Brokeback Mountain.’
“I hope we offered her something in life. But she made the kinds of choices of which we wouldn’t approve. ‘Brokeback Mountain’ basically promotes a lifestyle we don’t promote. It’s not the word of God.”
Thanks to Blender Ann for the pointer.
