Sugar Bits — Same-Sex Marriage Ban in California Might Pass

  • Although it is still too close to call, it looks like California has passed Proposition 8, banning same-sex marriage just months after it was legalized in the state. Similar measures restricting the rights of gay Americans passed in three other states as well. — CitzenSugar
  • Celebrities such as Brad Pitt and Oprah Winfrey were live in Chicago for Barack Obama's acceptance speech, while others have released their happy reactions to the news. — Us Weekly
  • Tim Robbins was told his name wasn't on the register at a polling place he'd been going to for years, and he refused to fill out a provisional ballot, went down to a judge, and after five hours voted on a machine. — TMZ
  • Simon Cowell opened up about his split with Terri Seymour and said that although they want "different path(s)" in life because he does not want to get married or have children, they remain friends. — Fox News
  • There was an anthrax scare at a Chicago police station where Patrick Swayze was filming yesterday, although he did not come into contact with the package, which turned out to be corn starch. — Chicago Tribune
  • Patrick Dempsey told Ellen DeGeneres he doesn't know why Brooke Smith was fired from Grey's Anatomy, that it's "too bad," and read a statement from ABC as a response on Wednesday's show. — The Ellen DeGeneres Show
  • Todd Shemarya, an agent that has represented Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Aniston, and Leonardo DiCaprio, is being sued by his former assistant, who alleges he sexually harassed her and discussed Brad's private parts with her as well as stole gifts from Brad and Jennifer. — Page Six

I'm sad that Proposition 8 passed, but I have a feeling that gay marriage will be legal sometime in the near future. I have hope. P.S. I'm a Christian (Catholic to be exact) and I voted NO on prop 8, so I don't like it when people generalize that the reason why it didn't pass is because of Christians. Many Mormon churches also supported prop 8, and I know a few atheist/agnostic men who didn't want to legalize gay marriage because they don't like the idea of two men having sex (two women having sex if okay with them though :oy:)

that prop 8 thing is terrible. Apparently we are ready for a non-white male president but still denying basic human rights.

this is AWFUL about prop 8. i don't know what message we're sending if we allow it and then it's overturned. i think that as a society we need to make more of an effort to be more accepting about people's right to choose. i saw oprah and jesse jackson but not brad - i guess it's nice that he was there...since he was such a supporter of obama throughout the campaign. that sucks about tim, and at least he had the day to argue with people about it. i don't know many people who would have put up with 5 hours of debate - they would have just voted via ballot and sent it in. it's just a shame about simon and his relationship. i have to admit though, that family and marriage and kids can truly be a deal breaker. i don't understand why there continue to be anthrax scares - it's just insane that this is something that we're STILL dealing with. i'm upset about Greys and i hope that we find out what really happened. it's a shame since brooke's character was just starting to get more developed. wow - another manager who's not doing the 'right' thing. i hope that this gets settled quietly - since personal stuff doesn't need to be drawn out into the public.

I am sad about Proposition 8. I am a straight Christian and I believe everyone should have the same rights. I agree with badkitty about taking a giant step forward and 2 steps back. Sad!

I'm angry about Prop 8. I'm sad that the world can't overcome their hate and not allow people who love each-other get married. I'm tired of straight and religious people use Gods name into it all. With divorce at an all time high if marriage is so sacred than why are people divorcing left and right? I'm one of the few who fight and protest. We have overcome color, sex, and religion in our nation now it's time to fight sexual orientation.
