Brangelina Engagement:

Gay Marriage Group Gives Their Blessing

EXCLUSIVE

0414_eq_ca_brad_pitt_angolina_jolie_tmz
A gay rights group in California fully supports Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's decision to tie the knot ... even though Brangelia always swore they wouldn't get hitched until everyone had the right to marry.

As recently as last September, Brad told Ellen DeGeneres, "I’ve said that we would not be getting married until everyone in this country had the right to get married." 

But Rebekah Orr, Communications Director for Equality California, says the group is totally behind the Brangelina marriage, even if the right to marry is still not enjoyed by everyone.

She tells us, "Marriage is something that says ‘we're a family’ in a way that nothing else can ... No one has to deny that for themselves or their family to prove they are an ally and supporter of equality."

Brad and Angelina finally announced yesterday they were getting married, even though they've been together for seven years and have six kids.

Since when is marriage a right?! Under the Constitution we have the right to life, liberty, & the PURSUIT of happiness. Did I miss the part about marriage?

Who cares what the gay people think? They can take their 10% of the population and go away. They think they are close to legal marriage. They are in for a shock, because this won't be happening for a long time, if ever. All they can talk about is bullying, bullying,
Looks like people really love gay people.

Jules,

It is the Declaration of Independence which contains the phrase "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" not the Constitution. That you don't know that may help to explain why you think that inalienable rights are bestowed by a do***ent instead of being bestowed by the Creator as the Declaration of Independence so eloquently states.

Well gee, it's good they finally decided to put their kids before the gays. It was just an excuse anyway, neither of them have any respect for the sanctity of marriage. Still it's trifling not to marry the person you have six kids with.
