Hey Prop 8: The entertainment community pretty much despises you

by Jeremy Hooper

Picture 13-61They are two blonde pop stars who once shared a same-sex lip lock. Now Christina Aguilera and Madonna are speaking out against the cruel, divisive, unwarranted, un-American, biased, offensive, discriminatory pock mark known as Prop 8, which has eliminated the marriage rights of countless other same-sex smoochers.

First up, Madge:

And now Xtina:

But don't worry Prop 8 backers: We're sure Anita Bryant will gladly come out of retirement to offer your side well wishes.

Your thoughts

Madonna and Xtina haven't had the opportunity to understand what is really being asked for. Even if they did understand that the issue came down to allowing experimental genetic engineering to create children of same-sex couples, they would probably have a pretty shallow understanding of the costs and benefits and what changes it would bring. They're not really people to listen to.

Please, John Howard: Spare us your nonsense today. Our threshold is particularly low this week.

Does anyone know if there are going to be any protests against Prop 8 in New York to show our brothers and sisters in CA that we support them? Are there even any Mormon churches in NYC? I don't even know how to organize something like this.

I am afraid I must say SO WHAT!!...JH...Too late and a dollar short and saying I'm sorry doesn't cut it. Where were they between June and November, when we needed support.

Hoot, John Howard you are so out of reality. You did see the pictures of Erik Hyman and Max Mutchnik's OCT 25th wedding in LA right? Wonderful NYT story and pics...it was also the naming day for their TWO infants daughters born via a surrogate in September..Rose and Evan..They had 30 family and friends at the wedding/naming and each had a part in one of the ceremonies I understood from the story. Wonderful, wonderful story. Lovely family.
