Kevin Spacey Talks Gay Marriage

At Monday’s Happy Hearts Fund 2008 ball in New York City, Kevin Spacey was asked about Proposition 8 and whether or not he hopes California will fight the ban on gay marriage. Here’s what he told Celebs Gone Good:

On President-elect Barack Obama: “Hope is in the air, and it’s palpable. It’s an exciting and generous spirit. And I think that the American public is ready for it, and I think he’s ready for it, and I believe the world is ready for it.”

On Prop 8 and gay marriage: “Well there’s no doubt that election night was a bittersweet night. But in some ways, these kinds of setbacks allow for a bigger fight, more challenges, and eventually we’re going to get it right. Eventually the American public will figure out that it really isn’t right to deny citizens basic civil human rights. And we can no longer allow that to happen.

“So the fact that these things were voted in, to me, it’s just an example of the fact that they had more money. How much money did the Mormon church put in? So I hope, like Arnold Schwarzenegger said, ‘Don’t give up. Keep protesting.’

“I think at the end of the day, if people are given rights, and the same basic rights that any individual is given, then we are in fact honoring the Constitution of the United States. Anything less than that is unfair.”
