1. Lynn Crosbie isn’t running with the snarling, snapping media pack, which is what the best columnists should do.
2. She correctly notes that a lot of the personal criticisms Cruise has faced over the years originate in homophobia; and
3. She correctly notes that a lot of the religious criticisms he’s faced are plain old bigotry and hate.
Like Crosbie says, his sexuality and religion should not affect my views of Top Gun, for example.
Which was, like, the worst movie ever.
