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?

Its become increasingly apparent that once that great and promising President of ours got in office, the inbred ass backwards thinking frightened jagged offs of the world decided to come out against anything and anyone they think may be different from them. You are an ASSHOLE of the grandest and most unfortunately ignorant kind. Why don't you just take 5 minutes in the mirror which I'm almost certain you snort coke and Meth on to reevaluate your shitty discontented life. Because I'm sure the problems you're currently suffering from are self induced!

So! If gay marriage were to become legal in all 50 tomorrow- then what? 10% of this screwed up nation is gay and this country acts as if the 21st centuries survival is riding on whether or not we can officially embrace the lifestyles of the misfits of society. What real difference will it make? With all that is crumbling in the USA is it really necessary for everyone to except this. Insanity! Poverty-Unemployed-Taxes- and the continuous topic from the Libturds is Gayness! You people are engulfed in stupidity and self righteous egotistical ignorance! Gay Marriage? That's the "MECCA" - you can't be serious!

Sorry Clint, Your publicist can't save you. You support a party whose platform denies women, gays, and immigrants their right to equality under God, the Declaration and the Constitution.

I don't care. I care so little that I read this article and logged in to make a comment. I am also an idiot; thankfully I'm not alone in the regard.
