Proposition 8

There’s no mistaking the joy as celebrities tweet their reactions to California’s same-sex marriage ban being overturned.

The courts have spoken! On Feb. 7, a federal appeals court ruled that Proposition 8, a measure which sought to ban gay marriage in California, is unconstitutional, and now the stars are weighing in about the historic ruling!

“Proposition 8 served no purpose, and had no effect, other than to lessen the status and human dignity of gays and lesbians in California,” the court said.

Almost immediately following the decision, celebrities began taking to Twitter to share their thoughts. Check out what some of Hollywood’s hottest stars are saying:

Lost respect for Kristin Cavaralli and Miley Cyrus, especially speaking up for this. Would think Jay Cutler would not be in favor of this; it’s sad that the world is saying that marriage is okay for gays/lesbians. Marriage was meant for men and women only. Evidently people need to get out their Bibles. I especially find it distasteful when people call themselves Christian, say they read their Bibles and then say it is okay for these people to marry.

I find this completely disgusting and unholy and morally wrong in every way. There is no way our beautiful nation should have to soil itself with such a thing. I am disgusted and will be forever ashamed to live in this world if this continues!

Then maybe you shouldn’t live anymore, you ignorant, homophobic, ugly person. Homosexuality is not wrong in any way, and I believe it is against almost everyone’s beliefs to discriminate against ANYONE for any reason.

Discrimination is wrong. Sex, heterosexual, gay, or otherwise, between anyone that is 18 to 29 who is female, georgeous, and with a man or woman, and preferably on film should be allowed, anyone else should be outlawed unless they’re making babies, and yes that includes the Kardashian and the Jenners and the Humpries and the Odoms.
