Ellen DeGeneres 'Saddened' By Proposition Passing

My Idol and Talk-show host and comedienne Ellen DeGeneres is getting serious and expressing her disappointment for the passing of a California proposition!

DeGeneres says she is "saddened beyond belief" that California's Proposition 8 passed, a proposition that would ban same-sex marriages, says the Associated Press.

She told the AP Wednesday that although the nation took a huge step forward with the election of Barack Obama as the first African-American president, "we took a giant step away" with the passing of Prop 8.

The comedienne, who reportedly contributed $100,000 to combat the proposition, married actress Portia de Rossi last August after a Supreme Court decision last May legalized same-sex marriages in California. I'm supporting same sex marriage. I believe there is nothing wrong when two people who are in love to get married.
