Brad Pitt Supports Same-Sex Marriage

Brad Pitt, has donated $100,000 to support gay marriage rights, The Associated Press reported. Mr. Pitt made the donation to fight Proposition 8, an initiative on California’s November ballot that would overturn the state Supreme Court decision to legalize same-sex marriage. On Wednesday Mr. Pitt said, “Because no one has the right to deny another their life, even though they disagree with it, because everyone has the right to live the life they so desire if it doesn’t harm another and because discrimination has no place in America, my vote will be for equality and against Proposition 8.” Earlier this week Mr. Pitt and his wife, Angelina Jolie, announced that they had donated $2 million to help fight H.I.V./AIDS and tuberculosis in Ethiopia.
