Samantha Ronson: Gay Marriage Ban is “Really Sad”

Atlanta, GA 11/07/2008 06:57 AM GMT (TransWorldNews)

Samantha Ronson is the latest celebrity to speak out about California’s Proposition 8, which bans same-sex marriages. She expressed shock that voters approved an animal-rights initiative but voted to ban gay and lesbian marriages.

“I guess people care more about farm animals that they do their fellow man, that’s really sad to me. Yes, I am glad that the chickens will have more room and better conditions as they wait to die, but I just think it’s frightening that people show more compassion for tomorrow’s dinner than for the chef,” Ronson said on her MySpace page.

Proposition 8 will ban same-sex marriages in the state and call in to question the legitimacy of nearly 16,000 gay and lesbian marriages. The proposition specifies that only marriages between a man and a woman will be recognized and it will rewrite the states constitution with those stipulations. Attorney Matthew D. Staver says that he believes California’s same-sex marriages will be annulled. “Constitutional amendments are retroactive,” he told People magazine.

Proposition 8 drew opposition from many other celebrities including Ronson’s girlfriend Lindsay Lohan, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and Ellen DeGeneres.
