From Ellen's Blog:
Hey everybody. There’re only a couple weeks left before we vote. In California there’s a proposition that’s trying to take away my right to be married. And if it passes, my marriage will probably no longer be valid.
The supporters of Proposition 8 have raised more than $25 million just to discriminate against same-sex couples who want to get married. That’s a lot of money.
I can think of 25 million other uses for all that money:
- How about paying teachers more? - What about helping those people who just lost their homes in the recent fires? - How about buying a pony for every child in California? How much fun would that be?!
Don’t let them convince you that discrimination is okay just because they can pay for a commercial. It’s wrong. Please vote NO ON PROPOSITION 8! I’m begging you. If you vote no on Prop 8, I’ll buy you a pony.
