It is good to see somebody in Hollywood put morals and standards over money.

Two of the three posts immediately jump on their moral high horse and talk about how they are pleased to find that there at least "some semblance" of decency in Hollywood and in "the acting profession."
Sigh.
Now might this be a little bit of an answer to the question I hear so often coming form Des News threads? "Why does everyone accuse us of being holier than thou?"
I've lived in Utah for many years and I've lived in LA for many years. There are as many decent people in the film and TV industry in LA as there are people working in businesses in the State of Utah. Both have great people and both have people you wouldn't want your kids around. TMZ and the gossipy tabloids just don't feel like covering the goings on at Walmart or the local KFC franchise. But if reality TV has taught us anything, it's that "Hollywood" does not have a monopoly on jerks and not everyone in Utah is a straight up, sealed with a handshake, straight shooter.

Utah and LDS members are not alone in considering Hollywood a seed-bed of corruption. It is a pervasive perception throughout the United States and much of the world.

This is probably because in many other places immorality is lived in privacy, while those images from Hollywood and Madison Avenue are shared with the world. Naturally, publicity magnifies the message exponentially.
