Brad Donates $100K To Fight Against “Proposition 8″

Brad Pitt has donated $100,000 to fight California’s November ballot initiative that would overturn the state Supreme Court decision legalising same-sex marriage.  It is the first time voters will be asked to decide the issue in either California or Massachusetts – the states where gays have won the right to wed through rulings by state courts.

"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," Pitt said on Wednesday.  The ballot question known as Proposition 8 essentially will ask voters to prohibit the practice of same-sex marriage, which was approved this year by the California Supreme Court.

Trevor Neilson, Pitt’s political and philanthropic adviser, told The Associated Press that Pitt was surprised that his colleagues in the entertainment industry had not donated more money to support the battle against Proposition 8.  Source

    IF PROPOSITION 8 IS NOT PASSED, IT WILL TAKE AWAY OUR RIGHTS AS STRAIGHT PEOPLE. OUR CHILDREN WILL SUFFER IN THE SCHOOLS WHEN THEY LEARN ABOUT A PRINCE & PRINCE GETTING TOGETHER IN KINDERGARDEN. THIS IS AGAINST THE BIBLE AND GOD’S COMMANDMENTS TO REPLENISH THE EARTH & MULTPLY. GOD CREATED ADAM & EVE, NOT ADAM & STEVE. VOTE YES ON PROPOSITION 8 TO PROTECT THE CONSTITUTION OF MARRIAGE.

    YOUR AN IDIOT. WHY WOULD A KINDERGARTEN TEACHER TEACH KIDS THIS AT SUCH A YOUNG AGE…WE ARE NOT TAUGHT ABOUT SEX-AID UNTIL EARLY TEEN YEARS. IDIOT. AND GOD CREATED EVERYONE NOT JUST ADAM AND EVE..BELIEVE IT OR NOT HE CREATED STEVE TOO .

    First off, It’s not whether Gay people should get married in your church. Church and State are separate. It’s about whether we should segregate or discriminate against people.
    Secondly, how is it horrible to think that our schools may teach children to accept people different then themselves?
    Third, by your arguement…. Do you think that straight people who are unable to have children naturally then should not be allowed to marry? Since they cannot physically replenish the Earth?

    Hey Annette,
    You’re an uneducated bimbo. Ever heard of a thing called separation of church and state? ITS NOT A CHRISTIAN COUNTRY AS MUCH AS YOU’D LIKE IT TO BE!!! Get over it.
