I’m all hopped up on Heath Ledger news right now, and it’s pissing me off from every angle.

Amid a story about Daniel Day-Lewis dedicating his SAG award to Ledger was a mention that religious groups were protesting the awards show. One of the signs the protesters carried said, “Heath’s in Hell.”

What the fuck?

First of all, how does anyone know Heath Ledger is in Hell? Do we have a direct hotline to the netherworld? If that’s the case, I’d watch out for these people. They seem to know too much about some things.

The last time I checked, there’s only one entity that makes those decisions, and he’s not a chubby white guy with bad hair.

I’ll let these religious nutjobs in on a little secret… Heath Ledger was an actor. Ennis Del Mar is a fictional character. It was a role, an acting job – on which he met and impregnated his co-star Michelle Williams.

No amount of quoting Leviticus is going to convince me that homosexuals will burn for eternity. But even if it did, I will never be convinced that simply playing a homosexual will land you in hell.

These are the same people that must think Tony Danza’s a great father because of his role on “Who’s the Boss,” hate soap opera villains because they can’t make that leap in reality and truly believe they’re seeing Hannah Montana on stage after paying $2000 a ticket.

I guess that by these twisted morons’ view, if playing a homosexual is enough to send you to hell, you should write off heaven if you’re cast as a rapist or murderer.

Man, I’m glad these people aren’t in control of my afterlife.

And one more thing… why were they protesting the SAG Awards anyway? Heath Ledger wasn’t nominated for anything. Heck, he was barely in any movie in 2007, save his small part in I’m Not There, which was noticeably overshadowed by Cate Blanchett. Why didn’t they do something more constructive with their time, like feed the homeless, tutor a child or pick the lint out of my belly-button?
