Heath will be sorely missed. His role in Brokeback Mountain showed us in a "real" context: loving men who kept their love secret because of bigotry and violence practiced toward good people, encouraged by those did not and still will not open their minds and hearts to reality. The movie was another step toward opening those minds and hearts. Thank you, Heath. You are loved. You blessed us with your presence. Go with God.

Cinematically the movie was very well-made. The direction, production, writing, sets, wardrobe, editing, all were critically aclaimed and award-winning or worthy. The actors pulled off the intricacies and complexities of their conflicted characters flawlessly. It was famous and pushed because of it's controversy, yes. But plenty of gay-themed movies have been ignored in the past and this one shone for a reason.

Hate Heath Ledger if you will. Hate BBM if you have to. But don't say the movie was poorly made; you lose all credibility at the get go.

Why a bigot who claims to be Christian would select as their screen name the name of a pagan king is much more interesting than the un-Christian cruelty they post here -

Exactly. The movie BBM was excellent, and he played a very nice role in Patriot as well. Why am I not amazed that the hate trolls came out to bash he death of a good actor, because he played a gay role?
The show must go on and I suppose the irrational homophobia goes on as well.

I feel the bible's character development was very weak. Not to mention the plot was a little far fetched. Good piece of fiction worth a read once though.

Wow, this guy died today and all you can think about is your biased view on one film he was in. That's really great.

What a post. You start out quoting the "good book", then spew idiotic hateful crap, add some more idiotic hateful crap, and finish with a plug for a club. And, not just any ole club, but a gay masturbation club. Interesting, a Bible thumping gay-hating bigot with an affinity for looking up and promoting gay sex clubs. Kind of hypocritical???????

It's sad.

I hope he did the right thing, repented of his sins, and made his peace with God before his death.

Now he has no opportunity to do what is right.

When G Long & Sargon the Great meet St. Peter at the gates to heaven I doubt that Peter will be very impressed by their lack of compassion.

You obviously know nothing about the movie business. It was an extremely poor movie that was supported by homosexuals in Hollywood.
Morally, it was also dispictable. Adultery and abandoning children were central themes.
It was the worst sort of trash from every point of view!
Uh...no, did you even watch it???
It depicted a story of two men that loved each other more than they loved their wives. The wives they married to fit into a society that would rather them be unhappy just so long as they are straight. To me it told a story of when you repress who you are and make decisions to make others happy, in the end you hurt way more than yourself when you decide to say screw the world.

This young man died, and all you "christians" can think to do is blame it on a movie and justify it by saying he deserved it? It's like you were waiting for him to die just so you could spread your message about "See, see? Homosexuality will ya" It wasn't his role in a movie that killed him, it was his appetite for drugs that did. May he rest in peace, he was a talented young man gone too soon.

Ass. A man died, leaving behind his 2 year old daughter and your going to focas on a movie from 2 years ago, almost 3? Classy. He was obviously depressed and no one helped him. Wasted his life on filth? I've never seen the movie, but let the dead rest. Wow, this is a tragic event and you are treating him with no respect. Open your mind, it won't hurt if you use the brain God gave you.

The Good Book ? Yeah, Riiiighhhht,.. haha,

Christianity:
The belief that some cosmic Jewish Zombie can make you live forever if you symbolically eat his flesh and telepathically tell him that you accept him as your master, so he can remove an evil force from your soul that is present in humanity because a rib-woman was convinced by a talking snake to eat from a magical tree. Makes perfect sense,..
