Steven Spielberg and his wife, Kate Capshaw, have followed in Brad Pitt’s footsteps, donating $100K to fight Proposition 8, the ballot initiative that would ban gay marriage in the state.
“By writing discrimination into our state constitution, Proposition 8 seeks to eliminate the right of each and every citizen in our state to marry regardless of sexual orientation. Such discrimination has NO place in California’s constitution, or any other,” the couple said in a statement.
Additionally, it has been brought to my attention that my home state of Arizona once again has an initiative on the ballot to ban gay marriage this year. It’s called Prop 102, and you can learn more about fighting this hateful legislation here. Arizona had the good sense to defeat this initiative in 2006, so, Arizonans, make sure you get out to the polls to make sure it goes down again in 2008. Let’s keep shutting this BULLSHIT down.
