2. Not sure about his political affiliations
But I do know that he is very strongly religious. Not sure how it affects his voting but I have my suspicions.

5. aha. too bad. no more denzel movies for me.
i also found this quote re: the email I got, which is covered on snopes


http://www.snopes.com/politics/military/denzel.asp

With his wife and four of his children nearby, he drew a roar of applause when he pledged support of America's military.

"I guess you read a lot about quote-unquote 'celebrities' being anti-war, and anti-this, or whatever they anti-," he said. "But you know this particular celebrity supports you 100 percent."

DISSENT IS FUCKING PATRIOTIC!

8. Eh, he is an actor
A good one. I can lament his political leanings (if in fact they need to be lamented). But its no reason to spite my own entertainment. There are far too few quality actors in the world. To turn my nose up at him just because he doesn't agree with me politically makes no sense.

10. Oh I know
Not saying its a given. But I have heard Denzel speak about his beliefs. And ... they are more in line with the religious right. Even then its not a given. He may be able to seperate politics and religion. Hence my reluctance to say anything further than I am suspicious.

Hooray for Denzel Washington

I always kind of liked Denzel.

I bet this one will never see the light of day again. Denzel Washington needs to get on FOX News or Meet The Press.... even Tim Russert would at least listen.
snip
At one point Katie asked Denzel, "have you seen Fahrenheit 9/11?" To which Denzel replied, "No, and I have no intentions on seeing it." Katie and Meryl were "so noticeably" taken aback! It was so cool!
snip
She of course did not get to finish her sentence because Denzel pounced on her verbally by responding "YOU PEOPLE! YOU PEOPLE! Just what do you mean you people! Do you mean "You People" as in me as a Christian, or do you mean "You People" as in me as a REPUBLICAN? She then tap danced her way through the next minute of the show. But Denzel went out fighting and declaring that Fahrenheit 9/11 is nothing but propaganda and lies distorted to support a cynical democratic film director's views.

Looks good for the bad guys.
He's a puke.

6. Damn, and I blew right by that one on google.
Thanks AZ. Denzel was right. Jesus kicked out the people who were making money off God, and making it a paying event to get into the temple.
