Steven Spielberg Gives 100,000 to Fight Prop. 8

Steve Spielberg

Following in the footsteps of Brad Pitt, Steven Spielberg and his wife Kate Capshaw have donated $100,000 to help defeat California’s Proposition 8, the ballot question that seeks to reverse the May court decision allowing Gay Marriage in the state.

The Spielbergs said, "By writing discrimination into our state constitution,
Proposition 8 seeks to eliminate the right of each and every citizen in
our state to marry regardless of sexual orientation. Such
discrimination has NO place in California’s constitution, or any other."

We think it’s great that celebrities are helping out, especially as funding tends to make a huge difference for any ballot question advocacy groups.
