Elton John Is For Prop 8
This confuses us! Sir Elton John has come forward saying he’s for Proposition 8, which bans gay marriages. He believes gay couples should stick to civil unions rather than getting married.

Elton and his longtime partner David Furnish celebrated a civil union ceremony back in 2005. At the Elton John AIDS Foundation in NYC on Monday night, he said, “We’re not married. Let’s get that right. We have a civil partnership. 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. 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.”

We have to say, we didn’t expect this from him! We figured the point is to be treated equally as citizens of this country. Do you agree with Elton’s statement?
