Sir Elton John is "fed up" with being a treated like a "second-class citizen" in the U.S.
That's why the 63-year-old gay singer said he took a stand last week during a performance at a private Beverly Hills fundraiser for the ongoing legal challenge to California's gay marriage ban...

How comes it that a foreign national gets ink in America demanding that things...Oh, AP. Sorry.
What a cry baby.
John is a God hating degenerate.
Oh the horrors of being wealthy and famous.
I think that he would have to surrender his title of nobility if he were actually a US citizen. Course Obama would probably let him keep it.
uhmmmm,,, he SHOULD feel like one. Isn’t he British?
Isn't he a "Green Card" holder ?
Isn't he a "resident alien" ?
He says this because deep down he knows he's involved in unhealthy behavior.
So. Stop engaging in sodomy.
It’s not complicated.
Cring like a little bitch!
I want to marry two or more women. Certainly I should be allowed to do that before men can marry men.
I think he’s going senile. A couple months ago he said gays had civil unions and that was enough. Now he says this.
Elton Piper puffed a peck of pickled peckers.
If Elton Piper puffed a peck of pickled peckers,
How many peckers did Elton Piper puff?
Really. Must be awful to travel on private transportation, have thousands of people cheering while you play music, go to a slum five-star hotel, and have the concierge fawn all over you.
If you are so "fed up" then get your stomach pumped again like you did when you were younger and you will feel better.
What a whiny loser.
Gays have more rights in this country than any other group. They are practically worshiped for their lifestyles.
A Fag should be made to feel second class.
Acceptance of evil in this nation is what has led us down this path to destruction. It’s high time we start rejecting certain behaviors and stop w/ the politically correct B.S.
he’s MR Money for Nothing
Sir Elton: Lighten up Reginald and go kiss a girl...you’ll feel better.
It’s a fundraiser to overturn Prop 8 so of course he is playing to the crowd.
What’s he supposed to say?
“Don’t let your son go down on me”????
He is NOT a citizen of the US. He is a subject of the United Kingdom. Go bitch about your treatment in your home country.
It’s the other way around...
STRAIGHT HETEROS are 2nd-class citizens as the MSM keep pushing their faggot agenda down the majority who dont want any part of it.
Didn’t Rush Limbaugh state that Elton John said he wasn’t interested in the ‘gay marriage’ issue? (I may be mistaken)
That was probably before Elton found a child to make into a pervert. After all he would not want his child to think he had sex before marriage. LOL
He isn’t a citizen at all, is he?
I think the gay lifestyle is wrong. It is a choice, unlike one’s orientation. Others may disagree. My problem with stances like Elton John has taken is the assumption that those who disagree hate him (although I am sure some do). Most of us just think it is wrong to change the definition of marriage from one man/one woman for life to any other combination. We don’t want the law changed. Many of us would not object to some form of civil recognition of the relationship because we believe in freedom to do things even though we may think they are wrong. But that is not enough for John. He does not equality, he wants equivalency. He is not entitled to that. Gay marriage is not marriage. Stating that fact is not hateful, it is just the truth.
Elton John’s self-image is his own problem...not society’s.
They all want their behavior sanctified by the most basic code known to man, the religious code. Pretty much no religion sanctifies the marriage of two from the same sex. This is the goal. I say sorry but if we all chose your path where would the woman and child go for care and protection and yes those are still needed roles to fill. So it’s a matter of paying some price for turning your back on a basic social responsibility.
I was chatting with a very nice gay fellow the other day and it finally came around to gay marriage. They really want it. I said that’s we part. The lunch time conversation pretty wrapped up on that note. I’m not sorry to say there’s a price to pay for being socially irresponsible.
The outspoken British piano man, who became a parent to a baby boy on Christmas Day with partner David Furnish, added that “as I get older, I get more angry about it.”
“In this country, we need more dialogue,” he said during an interview Friday. “We don’t need any more stone throwing. We don’t need any more vitriol.
’ I’m sick and tired of people being hateful to each other in this country’
in 2008 when he said he had no desire to get married and was satisfied with his civil partnership in England. He sang a different tune Wednesday when he praised the effort to overturn Proposition 8 and promised to do everything he could to support it, even though he is British.
Is Elton John a US citizen?
When was Elton John granted US citizenship?
That’s where we part, it should have read. Yes I had the guts to make my stand. Not an easy thing to do anymore, as it’s almost cause to be assaulted.
The young generations are very militant on the subject and it’s because of the social programming going on in public schools and the systematic attempts to keep kids from attaining critical thinking skills.
Now we are seeing the seeds planted by the equally militant education system taking root. The society is on an irretrievably social left bent in the short term. It’s going to take a real crisis to change the course.
He should try Saudi Arabia instead of the USA. Then he will know what “second class citizen” really means.
Delta’s ready when you are, Tinkerbell.
(Elton John not the OP.)

Rush will say what his new wife wants him to say.
What he means is that he wants PREFERENTIAL treatment and is not getting it. Cry me a river.
Elton is free to marry a woman of his choosing, providing she agrees. There is nothing second class about it. Marriage is a union between a man and woman. Elton might have some identity conflict when it comes to distinguishing which he is, but the overall intent and meaning of the institution of marriage isn’t complicated.
I’d give anything to be a “second class” multi-millionaire citizen! Wish I was half as oppressed as Sir Elton, Oprah or any number of these rich elitist A-holes!
Did Mick Jagger get knighted?
Oh poor baby. Our hearts lie bleeding in his hands
I’m sure polygamists feel like second-class citizens too. So too for pedophiles, bestialists, polyamorists, incest, necromancers, master-slaves.
Lots of people are discriminated against. They all love each other, so why can’t our smug and self-righteous society worship and tolerate them as normal?
Everything is so simple in the liberal mind.
People like him are responsible for AIDS in our country period. I’m seeing people on TV telling me that I have to eat far less salt.They say they do not want to pay increased insurance premiums caused by sodium in my diet. They say my “lifestyle” is costing them money.
You are so right.
yeah, Elton John is a real poor fellow. :)
Hey, if he wants to move to California and vote on the issue, go for it.
