Samuel L. Jackson, Mormons, and Prop 8

Just when I thought that I didn't have any thing more to add to the whole Prop 8 debate, Samuel L. Jackson got in his two cents regarding Tom Hanks' comments from last week about Mormons being un-American for supporting Prop 8 (see here and here). Now, according to Fox "you stay classy" News, Samuel L. Jackson modified the Hollywood argument:

I wouldn't go so far as to calling them un-American. I'd just call them
misinformed.

By them, I assume he means LDS that voted for Prop 8. Perhaps this is a more reasonable or coherent approach than others. I can also think of other misinformed decisions. Perhaps playing this guy for a movie role was. Or this role. Also being a part of the Star Wars movies that ruined all the rest is not cool either.
