Dear Mr. Hanks,
Thank you for extending an apology to my church. I think you showed true patriotism in your understanding of what makes someone American and I appreciate your attitude and behavior. You have once again earned my respect, both as an actor and, more importantly, as a person.
I do understand your grievances with Proposition 8, and how it can be considered discriminatory. I wish a solution could be reached that would satisfy everyone.
Again, thank you for your apology. It meant a lot to my church, and also to me.
