04 Dec Watch Out Elton John!
“We’re not married. Let’s get that right. We have a civil partnership. 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,” John says. “The word ‘marriage,’ I think, puts a lot of people off.
“You get the same equal rights that we do when we have a civil partnership. Heterosexual people get married. We can have civil partnerships.”
As Elton John has voiced his opinion, I would advise him to watch his back. For as many have found, there are some tough repercussions that come with publicly supporting traditional marriage. Just ask the people of California who spoke, whose votes were counted, and who now, in defiance of democracy, are being persecuted for their opinions.
Let us hope that the Militant Gay Marriage Movement does not blacklist Elton John nor boycott his business. Let us pray that they do not send mysterious white powder to the office of his record label, or that they do not disturb the religious practises of those who enjoy his music. Elton John and his partner ought to be prepared the disturbing slurs that will come out of the mouths of those who disagree with him. Disgusting are the actions of the No-On-8 movement.
