t’s a mere pittance following the ACLU’s contribution of $1.2 million to the No-on-8 campaign to turn back the vote of the people and bring gay marriages of all sorts and sizes to California, but it’s another indication of the advertising blitz that opponents of gay marriage and fence-sitters will have to endure:
Actor Brad Pitt said today that he will donate $100,000 to beat the November ballot measure that would outlaw gay marriage.
Proving that “A-list” and “F-grade” still go hand in hand, Pitt issued a statement:
“Because no one has the right to deny another their life, even though they disagree with it, because everyone has the right to live the life they so desire if it doesn’t harm another and because discrimination has no place in America, my vote will be for equality and against Proposition 8.”
Hmmm. Does that mean he no longer supports abortion?
I know of no one who supports 8 who doesn’t want gays to live the lives they want (as long as it doesn’t harm us by dragging public obscenity into our schools and neighborhoods), and doesn’t want them to live lives free of discrimination. Go ahead, do all your stuff amongst yourselves, even if normal folks find it disgusting. By all means, visit each other in hospitals and let each other execute wills, and get tax breaks, whatever.
Just don’t get married. Get civil unioned.
