Stars React To Prop 8 Ruling

Stars React To Prop 8 Ruling-photo

Yesterday marked a step backwards in the fight for equality in our country, when the California Supreme Court ruled to uphold Prop 8, which makes same-sex marriage illegal in the State of California.

Not suprisingly, many celebs have spoken out against the ruling, which does allow the 18,000 same-sex marriages from the last year to remain legally binding.

An outraged Kim Kardashian took to her blog, saying "This really makes me sad. I thought we were more forward thinking than this, and I'm disappointed in the Supreme Court for being so closed minded. Everyone.. gay, straight, bisexual, transgendered, EVERYONE should have equal rights to marry who they want to."

Kim's sister Khloe shared similar digust for the marriage ban, saying "While I feel extremely angry about this decision, I find myself ultimately feeling more disappointed with the state I call home, as well as my country. If you don't believe in same sex marriage, then don't marry someone who is the same sex as you! Simple as that! Honestly people, what gives you the right to dictate how others should live their life? Who are you to tell someone that they can't marry the one they love?!?"

Other stars took to their twitter accounts to express their distaste for the ruling:

Samantha Ronson: "Nice work california court, u must be beaming with pride. bet ya can't wait to tell the grandkids one day all about how you saved marriage!"

Russell Simmons: "So california supreme court upheld proposition 8. I don't get how it matters to anyone except those who want to marry?"

Adrianne Curry: "Treating gays like they arent human is wonderful!Might as well tell the gays2get to the back of the bus!Equal rights for SOME!"

Eliza Dushku: "Shame on California Supreme Court!"

Kat Dennings: "This is disgusting."

Alyssa Milano: "A sad day for equality."

Holly Montag: "BOO CALI! Our Bill of Rights and Constitution intended equal rights for ALL regardless of race, gender, SEXUAL ORIENTATION, age or creed!"

You've heard what the stars are saying, and now it's your turn: What do you think about the ruling on Prop 8?

    Well, too bad on the gays. You wanted to ram your dishusting lifestyle down our throats and get your little crusade put on the ballot. Well, be careful what you wish for. You wanted people to vote on it, and vote they did. You're all just pissed that the vote didn't go your way.And congratulations to the California SUpreme Court for not caving in and going against the 54% of the population who think gay marriage is wrong. Congrats. Too bad weirdos. Thank you to the California Supreme court for letting the deffinition of marriage to remain as between one women and one man.

    P.S. Robert Pattinson HATES Twilight. He even said so. He's only in it for the money. He can be in crappy movies all he wants, I don't care.... Jack PWNS Edward Cullen by a thousand!

    How could someone even THINK that twilight could beat Titanic??? Titanic was one of the most epic love stories of all time! And Jack is not a dork! I'm sorry, but Jack Dawson > Edward Cullen. Edward Cullen freakin' SPARKLES he is so gay!!! Jack doesn't sparkle. Do you call playing poker, swearing, yet being romantic, always saving his girlfriend, smoking, drawing, and giving up his life to save his loved one dorky? I don't! Edward Cullen sparkles and plays the piano! I call THAT dorky. (For a guy) I don't know what's wrong with you guys... Edward and Bella aren't even in love! It is lust and obsession! I can't believe all of you are falling for that trap BREAK FREE!!! Twilight was the worst piece of literature I ever read! >:( How could you go from something as awesome as Titanic to something as stupid and pointless as Twilight? HOW?

    Hey Joel, I loved your rant. It was fabulous attempt at trying to sound educated on the matter but unfortunately you're just closed minded bigot. Have a nice day.

    Ok, Glen, I will attack your message. To start out you said that gay marriage does not infringe on my inalienable rights but banning it infringes on those of the homosexuals. First of all, the status of gay marriage does not affect the life or liberty of anyone. We are all still alive and free, those liberties are not infringed. You may argue that it affects their pursuit of happiness. I would argue that the happiness of a gay relationship does not depend on whether they are legally married or not. I would also argue that imposing gay marriage against the will of the people would negatively impact their happiness and that radically altering the fundamental institution of marriage would negatively affect the happiness of society as a whole. Your second claim, first of all, comparing sexual orientation does not equal race. An example, having separate bathrooms for blacks and whites in unconstitutional, having separate bathrooms for men and women is perfectly fine. Gender matters. You are also wrong when you say that the majority does not matter when human rights are concerned. This is wrong because rights are ultimately defined by the people. The supreme court was able to desegregate schools because those violated rights established by the people. Not because they created some new right, as the Cali court justices did. Also, people have the right to vote and to amend their constitution. So I ask you, Glen, is it fair to uphold the so-called "rights" of gays at the expense of the rights of everyone else? I

    I hate to be the one to break the news to all of the people that are against same sex marriage! Turns out this country follows the Constitution, not the Bible! If our founding fathers got together and came up with the Bible, then maybe we would all be responsible for looking at this situation in a different way, but since they came up with the Constitution, the part where "all men are created equal" is stated, should be inforced, no exceptions! I promise you, there is no way to kill off homosexuals, turns out majority of homosexuals are born that way!

    Wow glen, you're right. I should move to a place where my "stupid, selfish, and bigoted" views on marriage are welcome and in the majority. Hmm, Let's see, California, Florida, New York, Illinois, Washington, 40 other US states. I heard Europe is nice too. England, France, Germany, Italy. In fact, my views are the norm most places in the world. You Glen, are a shame to your cause. Your attempt at an inalienable rights defense was sorry and unconvincing. And your hate speech is disgusting and hypocritical. Say no to hate! Say yes to defending marriage! You absolutly fail to understand that majority rule is irrevelant when human rights are being violated. That is why the surpreme court was able to desegregate schools in the 1960's despite the majority disapproval in the southern states. I appreciate your response, because you've show me that you're incapable of refuting the points i've made. You would rather attack me than the message.

    Well, I'm glad to see some people still don't understand that the Supreme Courts of states and the country are there not to uphold public opinion but to reverse unconstitutional laws. A law based on religion is, wait for it, unconstitutional. I'm highly disappointed in the court and their ability to do their job despite its political repercussions for them. Oh and seriously people, marriage was around long before Christianity or the Bible, quit pretending the church invented marriage.

    While I can understand having a strong opinion on such a controversial subject, the first comment here is incredibly saddening. "You wanted to ram your dishusting lifestyle down our throats" -- if this comment is a reflection of your religious belief, then I feel incredibly sorry for your lack of understanding of the Christian belief that everyone deserves to love and be loved. As Tim also pointed out, the meaning of the Bible at the time it was written has already changed tremendously to keep up. I don't remotely claim to be an expert in the Bible, so I won't argue much on it. However, I hold out faith that eventually the times will shift in favor of finally extending the rights we are meant to have as Americans to EVERY American.

    If you refer to the Bible, women are also property that can be bought and sold for a few head of goat or an ox, just so we are keeping things accurate. Additionally, gays don't want a HOLY marriage (which opponents can't seem to separate from LEGAL marriage). The ruling lets us know that our relationships are viewed as less legitimate than something that can be done drunk, naked, in a drive-thru, with a total stranger officiated by an Elvis impesonator. Since that is still a legal marriage, the claims that marriage has been protected are a fallacy and a total joke.

    It doesn't matter what the people of California voted for. There are "certain unalienable Rights" that gaurantee that every individual in this nation has "...Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness." Gay marriage does not infringe on your life, your liberty, or your pursuit of happiness. It doesn't infringe on any right or lifestyle you choose for yourself. Banning gay marriage does infringe of those inalienable rights of others. If you do not believe in equality for everyone or any of what I mentioned above, you need to pach your sh*t and leave this free country. There are plenty of places around the world where stupidity, selfishness, and bigotry are welcome and practiced openly.

    I agree, with the first comment but we can have a little more tact. Its not what you say its how you say it. I do agree that the people voted and it should be upheld. I do not approve by any means of gay marriage. Marriage was not for a man and a man nor woman and woman but if you refer back to UR bible, marriage is between a woman and a man. I think that people that chose to be gay or what ever they have been hurt badly by a woman or a man and they just turn to the opp. sex for comfort and they need to be healed. But once again I'm truly happy that gay marriage had been banned. And Prop 8 is not hate but it's the TRUTH.
