Wentz Slams Move To Ban Gay Marriage

FALL OUT BOY star PETE WENTZ has slammed the passing of a ban on same-sex marriage in California - insisting voters have been duped into vetoing the new law.
Just over 52 per cent of those who voted on Proposition 8 on Tuesday (04Nov08) opposed May's (08) Supreme Court ruling, which legalised gay unions in the state.
The move means same-sex unions, such as Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi's marriage, will not be considered valid like those of heterosexual couples.
And Wentz believes voters were "intimidated" into voting against the new law - insisting anti-gay marriage campaigners misled California's citizens.
In a statement, Wentz says, "Many people were intimidated on this issue due to the scary misleading communications on the other side. I believe that this is, and has always been, a civil rights issue. We should not allow inequality like this in America."
It is not the first time Wentz, who is expecting a child with his pop star wife Ashlee Simpson, has slammed Proposition 8 - earlier this year (08), he branded the proposed ban "f**king lame".
