Clint Eastwood Pledges Support for Gay Marriage

by at . Comments

He's one of the few big-time celebrities who is also a big-time Republican.

But Clint Eastwood has veered from the viewpoint of many Conservatives in one regard: the actor signed the American Foundation for Equal Rights’s “Friend of the Court” brief this week.

In doing so, the actor became one of over 100 prominent Republicans to support this gay rights organization's document, which it has filed with the Supreme Court.

In April, the highest court in the land will listen to arguments about the legality of California’s Proposition 8, an amendment that passed in 2008 and which declares “only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized" in that state.

Those such as Eastwood have affixed their name to this brief in the hope that this gay marriage ban will be overturned.

And recent poll revealed that 61 percent of CA residents would support marriage equality. Do you support it?

Just because an individual is a conservative, it does not give them the values of Christianity. To understand God's hatred of same sex marriage you must be "born-again" by the grace of God through faith in the completed work of Jesus Christ on the cross of Calvary.

you are all anti-american by trying to suppress one group of people. this country was founded on the belief that everyone was created equal, yet somehow, who somebody loves makes a person less equal, and should have less federal rights than someone else? how does that make any sense. fuck you and your beliefs, you will burn in hell for judging others.

Eastwood's stance is common today. We live in a society that outlaws prayer unless its to Allah and yet two underaged kids of the same sex doing public displays of affection have to be accepted. Moral decay ruined Rome and we are not immune. Eastwood started out as a porn star. Regardless of his tough guy rolls in movies and his views on gun control he is still a Hollywood icon who has no problem with sexual deviation. As a Republican he's more of liberal even as liberals go. He is no different than Charleston Heston being head of the NRA and openly gay. Is this about honesty or integrity or are these people infiltrators into the Republican Party who always were truly Democratic Socialist Party members? Even Ashley Judd who was at the inauguration of Obama speaking how great he is and nothing but an extremist liberal Democrat is now considering running for public office in Kentucky as a Republican. And this with het true residential roots in the neighboring state of Tennessee! Why don't she run as a Democrat in Tennessee? Because destruction of the Republican party is more important and thus now Eastwood shows he's not whom we always thought he was. So again..do you really want to trust the endorsements of Hollywood stars ir would you rather get off your own ass and make up your own mind as to whom you'll vote for next election?

America used to be a high culture civilization prior to the lefts feminizing assault on logic.Leftists oppose logic and champion emotion because the former refutes their views while the latter deceives them into feeling right about their wrongs.All of history refutes feminist' ideology while science refutes their claims to equality.

Clint Eastwood supporting gay marriage? I'm sorry but I'm having trouble believing this...especially the "equal" part. Back in the day, when he was in a relationship with actress Sondra Locke (who is now living a quiet and retired life), he made her life a living H-E-L-L. In more ways than one, Clint did N-O-T give a goddamn about Sondra or her (equal) rights. (1) Sondra had to put up with Clint's wild-ass mood swings. (2) Clint made Sondra cater to his every egotistical whim and need for 24/7. (3) And, Clint made Sondra get not 1 but 2 abortions because (at the time and as far as Clint himself was concerned) having a child out of wedlock (or whatever) was bad for Clint's so-called image. Clint is acting like an old fool. Period.

Oh for heaven's sake...are you crazy? He didn’t “make her” to do anything. And by the way, Eastwood was married when they began their relationship…which Locke knew very well.

Kit...perhaps you ought to read Sondra Locke's 1997 autobiography "The Good, The Bad, And The Very Ugly - A Hollywood Journey." Just a thought..........
