Sarah Silverman On Marriage Equality: “Some Things Aren’t Meant To Be A Vote”


“Gay marriage is something that Newark Mayor Cory Booker said it best [about]: Some things are not meant to be a vote. Some things are a right. And if things like that were left for a vote, he said, ‘I wouldn’t be where I am today’—meaning anything that is civil rights. Because people don’t always know what’s best. Their fears keep them from being open and being fair. And so that would just be not up for a vote. Gay marriage, legal, with a big f*cking apology for the past few years.”
