More than 1,500 New Yorkers gathered today in Manhattan to mourn the death of a 32 year-old gay man, who was shot down on Friday just blocks away from the historic Stonewall Inn in an apparent act of anti-gay bias.
Tori Amos Speaks Out Against Prop. 8
Singer Tori Amos, who is the daughter of a United Methodist minister, is disappointed with California voters for passing Prop. 8. She told UK's Attitude magazine
that outlawing same-sex unions was un-Christian:
A lot of people were saying, 'Well you have to understand that a lot of the voters are Democratic and Christians, the ones that had an issue with rights for the gay community'. And I would say how, in any way, is that the Christian path?
This isn't the first time that Amos has spoken on marriage equality and her religious beliefs. Asked by Spinner on how religion is often used as an argument against marriage for same-sex couples, Amos stated that intolerance and the need to dictate how others live their lives "is the greatest sin of all."
