Dear Tom Hanks,
I'm over you. After years and years of loyal, some might say too loyal, fan-hood, I am pretty much done. FYI, this is not just about the whole "Mormons are un-American" business or the fact that you think it's perfectly fine to produce a show that (despite repeated requests to the contrary) shows a sacred religious ceremony on cable television. Those are proabably good enough reasons, but they are not the only ones.
We all know any famous person who constantly uses their celebrity for political purposes eventually becomes super weird and/or super duper annoying (i.e. Sally Field, Oprah, The Dixie Chicks). I think you have finally reached the point where you think you are something bigger than just a movie star. Tom, you are just a movie star. As my grandpa would say, "You're gettin' too big for your britches". I am pretty sure people aren't going to change their fundamental beliefs because of something you said, but I am also pretty sure you think they would. The funny thing is Tom, you and I agree on a lot of things. I just think you are soooooooo obnoxious about it.
I am sad that it had to come to this. I still think you got robbed for not winning the Oscar for Cast Away and Bosom Buddies is a classic.
