Brad Pitt Fights For Gay Marriage

Brad Pitt Fights For Gay Marriage

Brad Pitt has donated $100,000 to fight California’s Proposition 8, a ballot initiative that would ban same-sex marriage in the state.

“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,” the 44-year-old actor said in a statement.

Political strategist Chad Griffin, who is coordinating efforts in the entertainment industry to defeat the measure, added, “It is our hope that others in the entertainment industry will step up and match Brad Pitt’s heroic commitment to quality and defeating Prop. 8. This isn’t a special interest issue – this measure affects every business and every family. With California’s budget and the national economy in chaos, the last thing we need is an unnecessary measure that threatens health benefits and protections for children.”

Well Brad, I suppose you don’t know how miserable is the life of gay people and that you have no idea all the discrimination they have between them. I do know it. Gay marriage is not that “happy ever after” as evertobody think.

Well I think you should be able to marry who you want. Why allow it then deny it?

Way to go Brad…fighting for equality for ALL.

Thanks Jared!

Waving to feline, anoble, vicki, tita, nlal, neleh, and to all posters!

Agree!!!

Obama/Biden ’08

He should have fought for his own marriage. ” because everyone has the right to live the life they so desire if it doesn’t harm another” – What a lie – he doesn’t believe this or he would still be married.

I guess may be he meant it when he said they will get married when all the gays can legally get married in this country.

It’s good to see him speaking out on such an important cause. He really is a good guy.

Does this mean Ellen’s marriage to Portia would be considered illegal if the Proposition 8 passed?
