Brangelina Engagement:

Gay Marriage Group Gives Their Blessing

4/14/2012 9:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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.

Go get married like everyone else and quit making it such a spectacle it is soooo tacky, WHO CARES...move on!!! I mean if you really have to have your children tell you to get married, you already have the horse before the cart....the both of them should be ashamed and embarrassed....

Whoa, he wore that scruffy look so long he missed the end of his HOT period. Sucks to wake up one day and find you don't live up to your old hype and now you are just old...
Jenn, look at the pic, you could have looked at that until the end of time. You dodged a pudgy bullet. Take your hot bod and pretty, line free because I don't have more kids than I really want, face and have fun!

Not getting married until everyone can do so? What a poor excuse for not getting married!

yeah, I was worried these two love birds wouldn't be able to get married. Since marriage is such a sacred tradition to them. Of course, my first concern are the feelings of complete strangers vs. what my own children would want. Well thank goodness, they can get married so they can soon get that divorce. I do expect idiot brad pitt to wake up soon and not be under the tr a m ps spell.

What's important is not if some gay group blesses the marriage, but wether or not the marriage is Blessed by God! I'm tired of people shoving their views down other peoples throat.

The only reason Jolie is still with Brad is because she hasn't been in a movie latley with a hot guy otherwise he would have been kicked to the curb too just like Brad did to Jenn. Jenn is so much more attractive then this bag of bones, Jolie looks like she is pushing 70. Eat something already because you are not sexy at all.

Oh thank God the gays approve. It's the straight people who couldn't give a rat's ass. It is funny how a cheater & a home wrecker are so concerned about the sanctity of marriage for everyone except Brad's former marriage. Celebrities & their self righteous, bassackwards, hypocritical thinking.

Can't believe the Director of Ca. Marriage Equality would make the statement " ...the group is totally behind the Brangelina marriage, even if the right to marry is still not enjoyed by everyone. " She doesn't speak for the rest of gay folks, that's for sure!

What happened I'm sure is their children wanted to know why they were not married. Sort of a kid security thing, ya know. Their(the chidren) should have a lot more to say about this, then the ever present gays and their destructive agenda.
