Gays are the new John Conner. Yesterday, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger spoke out in opposition to Prop 8., which… oh you know what it did, already. The Boston Globe reports:
In past statements, he has said he believes marriage should be between a man and a woman and he has rejected legislation authorizing same-sex marriage. Yet he also has said he would not care if same-sex marriage were legal, saying he believed that such an important societal issue should be determined by the voters or the courts.
Schwarzenegger publicly opposed Proposition 8, which amends the state Constitution to declare that “only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.”
Yesterday, he urged backers of gay marriage to follow the lesson he learned as a bodybuilder trying to lift weights that at first were too heavy for him. “I learned that you should never, ever give up. . . . They should never give up. They should be on it and on it until they get it done.”
His eyes glowing red, Arnold then set off for the Yes on 8 headquarters, muttering to anyone within earshot, “I’ll be back.” Don’t tell me Terminator references get old. They never do.
