Tom Hanks Apologizes for "Un-American" Slur

Eh. I suppose it's nice that a Hollywood liberal set aside his self-righteousness for a moment for some actual introspection.

A spokesperson for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, Kim Farah, took offense at Hanks's comments, telling FOX News, "Expressing an opinion in a free and democratic society is as American as it gets."

Now, in a exclusive statement to PEOPLE through his representative Leslee Dart, Hanks is softening his stance.

Last week, I labeled members of the Mormon church who supported California's Proposition 8 as "un-American." I believe Proposition 8 is counter to the promise of our Constitution; it is codified discrimination. But everyone has a right to vote their conscience nothing could be more American. To say members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints who contributed to Proposition 8 are "un-American" creates more division when the time calls for respectful disagreement. No one should use "un- American" lightly or in haste. I did. I should not have.

Sincerely,

Tom Hanks.

Note however he does not apologize for his impulse to demonize a religious minority.

As Rusty at My Pet Jawa noted: "Also un-Amereican? Americans." Who support such measures by around 60-40.
