Thespian union backs lesbian unions

by Jeremy Hooper

 Good As You Images SaglogoIn a move that doesn't surprise us yet still delights us, two different committees of the Screen Actors Guild have taken a stand against Proposition 8. This from Variety:

The guild’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender committee and its Hollywood Legislative panel announced the action on Wednesday, noting that the moves are part of the Guild’s ongoing anti-discrimination efforts.
...
SAG said its Hollywood members are volunteering for the "No on Prop 8" campaign and will assist with phone banking, events and community outreach.

They of course stood for equality rather than bias because it is the right thing to do. But also because the opposition has been so fully creating a world of make-believe and illusion, the actors were terrified that if left unchecked, the "yes on 8"ers would steal their jobs by Christmas!

Seriously -- when it comes to pretending like discrimination is "moral," the California anti-gays are like Olivier and Hepburn rolled into one!
