Kristen Bell: Gay Marriage Ban ‘Breaks My Heart’

 

Actress Kristen Bell has recorded a video for the HRC’s Americans for Marriage Equality project.

In the 30-second video Bell says:

“When my fiancee and I decided to get married it was because we knew we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together. And it breaks my heart to know that millions of gay Americans still can’t marry the one they love. And I can. That makes no sense.”

Watch the video below:

The 31-year-old Bell and fiance comedian Dax Shepard, 37, have said that until their gay and lesbian friends can wed, they will not tie the knot.

Kristen Bell is of course very good friends with out actor Zachary Quinto who was inspired to publicly disclose his sexuality after Jamey Rodemeyer’s tragic suicide.

Good on them! I'm sorry that they feel the need to put their marriage off, but it's a strong statement!

I don't understand why conservatives don't want to encourage monogamy for homosexual couples. Marriage generally implies commitment to one person -- isn't that a good thing?

A class in RESPECT AND RESPONSIBILITY should be taught from Grade one to graduation, children should be taught that anything is permissible as long as it does not hurt themselves or anybody else. Common sense would dictate that if children are taught at a very early age that every child has their own strengths and weaknesses and that they should use their strengths to help not tease or bully others. It should not matter if a child comes from a FAMILY of a mother and father, 2 mothers or 2 fathers or a single mother or father as long as they are LOVED.
Sex Education should be taught from LGBT, Contraceptives, Masturbation, Pregnancy and all forms of sex. Let us face it whether we like it or not children are curious and are having sex earlier and earlier. Children should be taught the joys and the consequences of having sex ( Pregnancy, STD, AIDS and others.) But you say when will this be taught. Cut out Geography or History early on then put it back in and remove Geometry or Algebra. They can learn this in college if needed. I believe this is a solution. Stopping the damage before it starts so that Bullying, Sexual Assault, and many others will be greatly diminished if not eradicated. It is my belief that when children graduate with these principals where they are taught RESPECT for themselves and others and to take RESPONSIBILITY for their actions. If children grow up with these principals I believe business and government would benefit greatly. Within a few generations

I love Kristen, and her openess to all people, no matter their backgrounds........ Also, anyone who LOVES sloths, and gets so emotional, and happy when meeting one, is my friend for life! (see her on the Ellen DeGeneres show, so funny).
