Supporters seeking to overturn Proposition 8 in California are certainly feeling lucky now.
Clint Eastwood has pledged his support for marriage equality. A gun toting, right wing Republican…supporting marriage equality…times have changed.
He’s one of the few big-time celebrities who is also a big-time Republican.
But Clint Eastwood has veered from the viewpoint of many Conservatives in one regard: the actor signed the American Foundation for Equal Rightsâ€™s â€śFriend of the Courtâ€ť brief this week.Â
In doing so, the actor became one of over 100 prominent Republicans to support this gay rights organization’s document, which it has filed with the Supreme Court.
In April, the highest court in the land will listen to arguments about the legality of Californiaâ€™s Proposition 8, an amendment that passed in 2008 and which declares â€śonly marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized” in that state.
Those such as Eastwood have affixed their name to this brief in the hope that this gay marriage ban will be overturned.
