Brad Pitt contributes $100K to gay marriage efforts, including in Minnesota
pioneer press ^ | 10-30-12 | Matea Gold

WASHINGTON -- Gay marriage advocates fighting tightly contested ballot initiatives in four states are getting a lift from actor Brad Pitt, who is donating $100,000 to the Human Rights Campaign's National Marriage Fund and calling on others to match his efforts.

"It's unbelievable to me that people's lives and relationships are literally being voted on in a matter of days," Pitt wrote in an email going out Wednesday to supporters of the gay rights group. "In Maine, Maryland, Minnesota and Washington, voters will go to the polls to decide if gay and lesbian couples -- our friends and neighbors -- are worthy of the same protections as everyone else."

Like Tom Cruise Brad Pitt was a houseboy for David Geffen before Pitt got famous. Pretty things like Cruise and Pitt who “worked” for the very very gay Geffen were usually not there to serve tea to the guests. Folks say that Pitt was straight — maybe not?

This probably happened last week.

Hope he’s sorry it’s coming out now as many North Easterners are sifting through rubble.

What a load of BS. And here's a prediction: gay marriage will be voted down in all four states mentioned.

I went out yesterday for early voting and voted against same sex marriage. The whole idea of 2 men or 2 women marrying is BS. If they want to get their cookies by playing with each other that’s fine I suppose, but it isn’t a marriage in any form.

It’s funny I never knew Brad was a Ben Dover boy.Guess you can’t tell a book by it’s cover.-—especially not in Hollyweird. Gay has been acceptable there for years. It’s a strange land where you accept their freakish sex lives or you don’t work.

By the way I watched the latest NCIS Tuesday night, and they have even ruined that now with their latest liberal horse dung.

Protections against what?

Or is it the creation of "special" "rights."

Just another sodomite-loving Hollywood creep. Wonder how many sodomite Hollywood producers had their way with pretty boy when he first got to Hollywood?

If Brad Pitt were truly for marriage equality, he would also cut a check to those organizations who support marriage between a man and a woman. And if I’m not mistaken, heterosexual marriage, while legally recognized, has no legal proctections in the United States.

I’ll never understand how guys like Pitt, who had their choice of beautiful women, could go for all this queer shit.

Brad and George Clooney should just come out of the closet and marry each other.

She is avowedly bi, is even raising one of her diversity brood of kids with a dyke-looking nanny, as her token lesbian

Poor little child

so maybe they are MFEO

They are a couple of hypocrites, out touting marriage when they are raising 6 kids in an unwed relationship that is no doubt a tightly constructed legal partnership available to any 2 people (or maybe why not 3, or 4?)

Interesting, I happened to mention to my daughter that Pitt was homosexual and she jumped all over me for "spreading lies" about "innocent people.

I told her that it was not a lie but a fact and the part of his being "innocent," never entered into the subject.

EVENTUALLY, Brad Pitt will see the Light. His mom prays for him. Remember St. Monica and St. Augustine! ;-)

It is a land where there are no boundaries. They made it that way and like it. Most of Hollywood spend their days in their psychiatrist office or popping pills because they are insecure and confused about life (or maybe the one they made). They make their livings being someone else. But, they need to be told they are ONLY actors and not idols and we really don't want or need their advice especially on morals and values.

totally agree with you—maybe he should focus on his own marital state instead of trying to push others to accept same-sex marriages.

Pitt is an HHH (hypocritical Hollywood H%m0).

“And here’s a prediction: gay marriage will be voted down in all four states mentioned.”

I hope you’re right. here in Minnesota, the pro-gay marriage forces are going all out to defeat this amendment.

The latest? They’re now saying that members of the business community are worried that passage of this amendment will make it harder for them to attract and retain taleneted professionals. In short, being in favor of traditional marriage is bad for business (eyes rolling).

Their TV ads all feature straight people talking about the need for us to be, as one actor put it, “The land of the free and the home of the brave”. At no point do you see a flaming homo on TV lisping about how we wants to marry his “boyfriend”. If they ran an ad like that, the poll number sin support of the amendment would shoot thru the roof.

They’re even bringing out a number of prominent Republicans (including the former chief justice of the state Supreme Court) to say that this amendment is a bad thing.

The pro-gay marriage group is going all out to stop this amendment. if you believe the polls coming out of here, the amendment may not pass either.

Nope: Turns out that the man Gibbs was named after was black and was in love with Gibbs motehr , but of course they couldn’t marry because he was black so Gibbs dad played second fiddle.

Anothe gag a maggot liberal moment written in just for the political correctness of it.
