    Interestingly enough, Norris (in the Bruce Lee vid)looks a lot like Waylon.
    So he hates women? Anyone ask his wife how she feels about that?
    But then. . . this is the part you will never get:
    "I’m excited for a day & age when sexist religion-using bigots won’t be welcome in Hollywood."
    Like back when "communists" weren't welcome in Hollywood?
    See the thing is you can't change people's beliefs through aggression. You have to lead by example. Otherwise you are no different from what you are trying to change.
    This is why your version of the mindful life falls flat for me.

    +1 to Mr Science!

    Where are your sources? Stating that Norris hates gays, atheists, etc. is hearsay unless there's documentation.

  5. integralhack says:

    Right on. Norris is–or was–a martial artist and action movie actor. Not someone that should be a real-life "hero." His views are as simplistically Tea Party as you can get. Pray that he and Sarah Palin never have a child together.
