Let's see, he did that not by force or law or by lying or misrepresenting,
but by publicly reading the lyrics of a group promoted by Warner, then he
let people make their own decision. How is that illogical? I think everyone
has not only a right but a responsibility to take a stand on their values.
So long as they are using legitimate means, as Heston did, you can agree or
disagree but cannot fairly complain of illogic or violation of rights.
