As many of you know, Elton John caused a controversy this week by performing at anti-gay marriage radio host Rush Limbaugh.
Well, as it turns out, Elton John is anti-gay marriage as well!
“What is wrong with Proposition 8 is that they went for marriage. Marriage is going to put a lot of people off, the word marriage… I don’t want to be married. I’m very happy with a civil partnership. If gay people want to get married, or get together, they should have a civil partnership… You get the same equal rights that we do when we have a civil partnership. Heterosexual people get married. We can have civil partnerships.”
You see, both he and Rush Limbaugh are opposed to gay marriage, but support civil unions.
Because nothing makes me happier than an openly gay celebrity speaking out against gay marriage!
Seriously, this is so disappointing. Civil unions are NOT marriage, people! They don’t provide the same rights at all!
Project Queer: If my partner and I were to get a civil union, we would be lacking over 1,000 rights that a married couple has. Otherwise, that is totally true, Mr. John. (That was sickening to read)…
