Actress Drew Barrymore joins the fight against California’s controversial Proposition 8. Read the rest of the story and see photos and video of Drew Barrymore below.


Actress Drew Barrymore joined protesters in Silver Lake, Los Angeles, to rally against California’s controversial Proposition 8. In the midst of over seven thousand angry citizens, Drew took to a megaphone and passionately spoke about her feelings about the recently passed California constitutional amendment:

“This cannot happen. We have to change this. This is so wrong. With all my heart I could not feel more passion about this and honored to be in your presence and I will fight with you.”

The protest was a rally against Proposition 8, which narrowly passed in last week’s election. Prop 8 is a state constitutional amendment that bans same-sex marriage, a right the state Supreme Court had given gay couples a few months ago. The Silver Lake protest is just one of many that have sprung up over the past few days to protest the election results. Other celebrities, including Melissa Etheridge and California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, have also spoken out against Prop 8.

    Drew Barrymore is just a bog standard hollywood liberal.

    The whole purpose of marriage in society is the declaration of a new breeding pair. I’ve never been anti-gayrights before but I don’t see them as a hard done to minority this time, I just see them as being unreasonable. Stand together, protect the meaning of our ancient institutions, marriage is not a tax break or a ticket to citizenship.

    Drew, you are so cute.

    What else do Celebs do other than drugs, affairs, and protests?

    You’re still cute.

    More and more of us are WAKING UP, America. No taxation without equality; simple math.

    Now the feds will need to repeal DOMA and DADT, grant us FULL equal rights (including marriage), and begin to start viewing our families – OUR FAMILIES – as the tax-paying contributing members of society we are…..well…..we USED to be!

    Because if our HOMES, our FAMILIES, our very BELOVED are not acknowledged and valued as other families are legally, whatever we do outside of that home will never be acknowledged and valued legally, such as adopting children, working without discrimination, or serving openly in the military.

    FAMILY FIRST. What is more important than FAMILY?

    We owe the IRS absolutely NOTHING until equal. NOTHING. Get it?

    This is NOT a test.
    This is NOT a debate.
    This is NOT a vote.
    This is definitely NOT a popularity contest.

    This IS justice – GAY TAX PROTEST.

    Chris-

    You are kidding right? A new breeding pair? Why do we allow women to marry who have passed the age of menopause? Shouldn’t that be made illegal too? How about men who are sterile? Let’s legally dissolve their marriages. Wounded in war and incapable of dadhood? Too bad for you, soldier. Please sign your state-mandated divorce papers.

    Or how about this? We keep government out of the business of dictating the personal lives of consenting adults who want to spend their lives together. Allow states to take away the rights of any minority, (in this case revoking the right to legally marry) and your rights disappear next.

    Personally, I’m sick of a second class of citizenry for gay people or anyone else. We are a great and just country. Our young men and women fight and die for principles like freedom and equality under the law. If we want to claim to be better than countries who stone women for being the victims of rape, one person’s religion must never dictate the human rights of another. We as a nation are so much better than the prop 8s of the world.

    Now who’s kidding?
    We somehow think that we are all knowing and all powerful, to the point of knowing how it should all be worked out.

    If you don’t believe in the word of Elohim than what I am about to say will go over your head, but If you do; then you do the research to discover why Adonai say’s these things are destructive to his plan for us as just and holy people.

    If you where (heaven forbid) the creator of a world, and you knew that there was an enemy that opposses you because this enemy wants chaos, anarchy, and to destroy the very people that you have created; you would set presidence for how they should live and behave to maintain your standards, and to protect them from all of the deceptions that would lead them into chaos.

    If any of these humans that you have created start to do things that are outside of your standards for them; then they in affect declare their independence from your rules and ultimately your protection. This means that the natural consequences for sex outside of marriage for instance would mean the greater possibility of more and more devestating desease; or let’s take same sex marriages for instance. Let’s not even talk about the spiritual consequences of such a thing. In the natural if it were to become so common place and a natural way of life your people would soon perish because there would be no procreation. Why? You might ask; remember that enemy that I was speaking of? This would be the perfect tool for that enemy to use to deceive everyone into thinking that this is the kind of lifestyle they all should be living and eventually this mindset would eradicate all life on your created world. The only thing that would be left on the planet would be animals, but wait would there be? If same sex marriages is ok then why not beastiality, or wholesale killing for sport…Etc.

    When you say “We are a great and just country.”
    Who’s definition of “Just” are you referring to?

    When you say “principles like freedom and equality under the law.”
    You are applying “freedom and equality” under a flawed and completely chaotic standard.

    We are only still a great nation (and that is becoming blurred) because there are still those of us that are not afraid to stand up for biblical principles and holy standards. In other words; for those who believe right is still right in accordance to Him who created right, and wrong is definitely without a doubt
    wrong in accordance to Him who gave the definition of wrong.

    We want to holler “TOLERANCE”, but I submit to you; how do you tolerate concepts that will eventually obliterate everything that is good in accordance to Him that created good.

    Please hear my heart:
    Those that want to live different than the biblical standards are not hated by true believers because we know that “we are not struggling against human beings, but against the rulers, authorities and cosmic powers governing this darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realm. Eph 6:12″
    Better known as the enemy that I spoke of earlier. The people are highly loved and it is because of this love that those like myself are trying to change the perception that wrong should be excepted as right.

    By-the-way, everyone cannot be right and everyone is not wrong. There is only one truth and we as a nation; strike that; WE AS A WORLD had better find out fast what the truth is before it is too late.

    Emissary, you are one of those bible thumping pricks who cannot see past there beliefs to SEE the actual world!

    people like you start wars for “god” and damn people who are different!

    i am Catholic but i am also gay my church my priest has accepted me for me and that is amazing, if they can do that why cant you open your eyes! god created us ALL! and i believe he wouldnt have created me the way i am if he were just going to send me to hell! he loves me and even you being the prick you are.

    when all this was happening i hoped prop 8 wouldnt be passed and that i would be able to legally marry the women i love so much, i just want to have the same right as every one else, just because i couldnt stand to be with a man doesnt mean i shouldn’t be aloud to marry
    and its not about tax reductions and other stuff like that to me i just want the beauty of a legal marriage with the one i love so very much

    and children of course i want them and if i do i of course will raise them catholic and let them grow to be who they were ment to be, weather they turn out to be gay, straight, dumb or smart i will be there for them like any other mother and love them for who they really are.
