Haggis is the Oscar-winning director who beat out the gay cowboys for Best Picture by having Sandra Bullock fall down the stairs and learn about racism. He is now an outspoken opponent of Scientology after leaving the church in 2009. Haggis opposed the church’s decision to support Proposition 8, saying that it was “a stain on the integrity of our organization and a stain on us personally. Our public association with that hate-filled legislation shames us.” Gay cowboys, I think ya’ll are even.
