Cybill Shepherd: Gay Marriage Ban ‘Doesn’t Make Sense’ (VIDEO)


Actress Cybill Shepherd has recorded a video for the Human Rights Campaign’s Americans for Marriage Equality series.

In the video Shepherd asks, “Why would the government think that I am more deserving than a gay or lesbian couple? Just because I’m straight? That doesn’t make any sense.”

She goes on to say: “I believe we are all equal in the eyes of the law. And therefore, we all deserve marriage equality.”

"Gay marriage ban doesn't make sense"? Delete the word 'ban,' and the rest of it coheres sensibly.

History doesn't just lead up to this generation and then stop. We need a next generation. What that means first is the commitment of heterosexual couples to stand by each other and by the children they generate. That means a restoration of marriage, not a dilution of its definition or structure.

That said, same-sex "marriage" remains a noisy sideshow. Divorce is a far worse problem -- broken families injure children emotionally, and couples who make their marriage vows need to keep them... or else not bother making them in the first place. (But look out: partner abuse is far more rampant in common-law relationships than in marriages.)

Elaine, have you been taking lessons from your fellow free thinkers like Jeffrey and PraetorianSlv
or are you just that nasty and judgmental all on your very own? You really are a piece of work!

And just remember..

There's a lot of other stuff that doesn't make sense either, like how come we STILL don't have the
Equal Rights for WOMEN amendment PASSED? Would that be because old WHITE MEN
don't want WOMEN to be EQUAL? Looks like it. I wonder WHY? Could it be because they
are CONTROLLING PRICKS who can't get it up without VIAGRA?

Elaine A. ------What is your problem? If you don't agree with some people's thoughts, as my teachers always told me, "use your words". The words you used are just jibberish.....
