    around 1:14, a chance to be less alone…

  4. 4

    That was really powerful; and I completely agree.

  5. 5

    Keith Olbermann is an idiot.. who really cares what he has to say

  6. 6

    Keith Olberman rocks my socks!! everyone has the right to happiness and loving whoever they choose to love!

    Wow, this guy is kick ass.
    = ]]

  9. 9

    I hope all who want to ban a right to another listened to that to the very end. And no, a CIVIL UNION is NOT the same as MARRIAGE. Go do your research and have empathy while doing it….what if that were you?

  10. 10

    this is amazing.

  11. 11

    of all the messages against prop8, this one was the only one that truly moved me. you don't have to be gay or have any close friends/family who are gay to understand his fundamental message of human decency and respect. well done, keith olbermann!

    if it is a question of love… i love my little brother and my dog… is it ok if we get married??? i love them… ITS MY CIVIL RIGHT!!!

  16. 16

    well said. couldn't agree more.

  17. 17

    Keith's the best. Been watching him for years.

  18. 18

    I post this again, in the hope it'll reach more people: I am a straight, married Christian mother of two. It makes me so sad that Prop H8te passed. Jesus loves us all, and I believe he'd be scolding us Christians for giving so much attention to an initiative that really doesn't affect us. He'd lecture us on the hate and devisiveness we encourage by supporting such a law. He'd ask us to instead witness to our gay bretheren on the love that HE has for all of humankind. He'd order us to re-direct the attention and energy that has been designated towards excluding a segment of the population towards caring and nurturing those less fortunate than us.
    I think that all gay people should choose a day of protest and stay home. Don't go to work or school. All of us who support equal rights should stay home too. All of the bigots with closed minds will see just how important the gay community is to our entire community. This will also demonstrate how many people are really affected by such a callous law.
    Remember seperation of Church and State protects us all. Who's to say which Christianity is correct? Or that in the future, the majority of the population won't be Buddhist? If we protect the United States' seperation of Church and State now, it'll ensure that our future generations will be able to worship in peace.

  19. 19

    i completly agree. if its not bothering you why are u against others being happy?
    peace. love . happiness, no on prop 8!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    everyone should watch this video and try not to feel any compassion

  20. 20

    i loooooove keith olbermann.

    too bad the people he's addressing are too stupid to understand the words he's saying.

  21. Texas says – reply to this



  22. 22

    Truly amazing.

  23. 23

    He is fantastic, and smart and thoughtful. Look up what he said about 9/11 a while ago. Everything he said there, and everything he said here are very thoughtful, and true….seriously, "what's it to you?"…all of you, who think that gay marriage is ruining the marriage of men and women, what exactly do you mean? Let people be happy, and let people love.

  24. 24

    This is such a good report.

  25. 25

    I APPLAUD you Mr. Olberman! You ROCK!

  26. 26

    AMEN!!! I LOVE KEITH!!!!

  27. 27

    Awesome Keith Olbermann!

    These people need to find a cause worth fighting for… homelessness, the war in Iraq, starvation, literacy, poverty….. there are so many more important things to do than sit at home and obsess about what I'm doing in my bedroom. I don't sit and think about what homosexuals or heterosexuals are doing in their bedroom..why are so many people wasting so much time worrying about homosexuals? Get over it!

    Straight people have made a mockery of marriage. Today people can be married 2,3,5,or 8 times with vows taken of “till death do us part”. Why not issue marriage licenses in the same manner as a driving licenses? You can drive different vehicles with a driver’s license. Why not have a marriage license enable a person to marry any other person? They would be licensed as “certifiable spousal material”. It would streamline the process!

    Straight people are abandoning marriage for the less taxing method of shacking up. It seems nowadays anything goes. Just do what feels good. There is more to this than a first glance knee jerk reaction. A civil union is not objected to by a majority of the voters. Why not start there?

  30. 30

    i love keith!!!!! reminds me to watch countdown tonight along with 360!

  31. 31

    wow….that is a powerful mesage…very moving…keith has good oratory skills….religion is the root of most hate….most of us are brainwashed and indoctrinated in our decendants form of worship….we are immersed and impregnated with those religious beliefs and abide by it wholeheartedly. we refuse to hear others ppls perspectives and we judge by the so called bibile or koran doctrines…….if only the "others" could live as me for a day…..

  33. 33

    I am so sick of these sore loser ass gay supporters/gay people pushing their lifestyle on others. Homosexuality is a sublifestyle! You CANNOT push a personal practice of yours and force it into society. The real problem is California, being a liberal state was suppost to vote no on 8. It didnt happen. No one wants to believe it. And this is what we get. Idiots selling discrimination and hate to the press to get their cause going. SO STUPID. This makes me wish gays seriouilsy went extinct.

  34. 34

    I completely agree with him… Gay people should be allowed to marry! …
    but isnt news media suppose to be objective…and not impose opinions upon people? He is the liberal version of Oreilly !

  35. 35

    britney spears got married for like 48 hours. where's the sanctity in that? we see celebs making a joke about marriage and then getting divorced and suing each other for millions. even regular people get married for all the wrong reasons. the shit is really fucked up!

  36. 36

    ok ok ok now is too homo too homo….stop these now…to homo

    Re: PEREZ SUCKS – no you fucktard - as your little brother, nor your dog is a consenting adult. but hey… when little brother turns 18 and you wannt fuck the shit outta him, be my guest sicko.

    I adore Keith! He's the anti - Bill O!

  39. 39


  40. 40

    this was amazing. kudos to him!

  41. 41

    HELL YEAH! GO KEITH! Very well spoken…

  42. 42

    omg this is so true. if i could vote i would totally vote no on prop 8 oh yeah and if i lived in cali.
    but i told my mom to vote no on 102 in AZ wich is just like prop 8
    and she did (:

  43. 43

    that was extremely well said… im in tears!!!

  44. 44

    I agree with Keith however why didn't he put something like this before the vote? it might have helped to swing the votes the other way. Just saying!!!!!

  45. 45

    as of now, I am in love with Keith Olbermann.
    He is totally right.
    I know that in years, maybe centuries, people will realize that discriminating against gays is bad.
    I hope that it will not take that long, I just hope people realize it.
    There will always be people out there that are against gays, just like there are still racists out there.
    These people, I will never understand.
    In the future, people will look back at this time and think "wow, what were they thinking?"
    I want to know too, what are all you homophobes and people that voted yes on 8 thinking?
    because it seems to me that you all are saying these things because of your religion. well you know what? God created us all, meaning he also created gays. We are ALL equal.
    Gays were born gay. If you think they were taught to be gay, think they chose to be gay, tell me this:
    why are people that were taught to believe that being gay is a sin gay?
    Why would someone decide to declare themselves gay when everyone discriminates against them? hates them for no reason? thinks they are below them?
    I myself am not gay, nor do I personally know anyone that is gay, but I believe these things so strongly.
    If you vote yes on 8, tell me one reason that you believe being gay is bad. One reason that does not have anything to do with church. One true reason why we should discriminate against gays?
    WE ARE ALL EQUAL. So why aren't we all treated equal?

  46. Jezz says – reply to this


    Yeah, like I'm gonna listen to this idiot. Give me someone with more credibility. Like this website, this idiot makes me not want to listen to what gays are about. This is turning into more and more stupid as weeks pass by. I'm for equality but come on, you guys are taking it out of hand. Ridiculus!

  47. 47

    Beautifully said!!

    Re: topper
    Go school yourself on that…
    And for the expected few who say "But the people have voted. You don't see me whining about Obama. Get over it!"
    I say to these people: No one voted to have your right that others enjoy taken away. So these two votes for McCain and to amemd the CA constitution are not the same.

    Keith Olbermann is amazing.

  51. 51

    I love Keith! He's amazing! How couldn't anyone agree with his comment?

  52. 52

    SEE WHAT I MEAN !!!!!!!!!!

  53. 53

    Re: topper – whos to say gay people wont get divorced over and over again too???
    people always focus on the negative… "50% of marriages end in divorce"… how about the praise for the other 50% that stayed together????

  54. 54

    Wow! If only everyone could be as brave as to have a heart that open. Truly beautiful.

  55. 55

    Re: Jezz
    If youre getting sick of is then leave.
    If people had not stood up to others when blacks were still discriminated against they still would be.
    we HAVE to make a stand against homophobes and people like you.
    And I'm not even gay. :)

  56. 56

    Re: lili808 – Bravo - you're a credit to yourself and to your children. A non-bigoted Christian is a rare find, thank you for sharing your thoughts - they'll make a difference to someone . . .

  57. 57

    That was excellent!

  58. 58

    I honest to god think a lot of people were confused on what they were voting for based on how they advertised it.
    Even me, who voted against it, had to say it out loud a couple of times to make sure I was voting the right way.

    You have to admit that voting no to some people meant they were against gay marriage and yes meant they were for it.

  59. 59

    unfortunately, alot of people think oberman is a complete asshole and will not support anything he says. those who listen to him, well, are liberals and probably voted no on the prop. so it is like preaching to the pope. again, protesting is only going to make people angry, especially if you do it at their place of worship, some of the worst people are getting out there and basically calling the people who voted yes stupid and ignorant, again getting people mad. and going on and on about on your site is making your decline come even faster. A year ago, you would have over 100 posts on almost every blog. and the ones that post now, many are against your point of view, at least the ones that aren't deleted (a landslide I believe you call it). I was sympathetic to you until you began to post items on how stupid catholics and mormons are 6 times a day. I don't see you posting on how stupid and ignorant the blacks and hispanics are for voting yes. by posting hate, you are just as bad as the ones who voted yes because of hate towards gays. Mormons did not make the vote go the other way, they do not even have 1 million people in california. I am willing to bet some mormons, catholics did vote no even though their religious leaders told them to vote yes, but if you continue to try to make their leaders look stupid, they will change their minds and, if the vote comes up again, the margin will probably be even wider

    Re: Sensitivity
    GET HELP!!!!!!!!!!!

  65. 65

    Re: Sensitivity – I'm all down with the free speech thing, but you have the choice of coming so this site or not. This site is run by a 'homo' and a lot of the readers are 'homos' or allies of 'homos' so if you don't like it, I urge you to go get your celebrity gossip elsewhere.

    I personally enjoy hearing Perezzers political opinions, it's great to hear from all sorts of people. So you can count on me to continue reading and bring in more readers as well.

  66. 66

    Why does the government get so involved in peoples lives… Give the right to do as they please…….

  67. 67

    This was so moving and right on point. The lives of others that in no way affect your own life is (and always should be) of no concern to you. If a gay couple wants to get married, have/adopt children, be on their partner's insurance, or anything else that the rest of us take for granted, who are we to say they can't? If the tables were turned and 'conventional' marriage was outlawed the prop h8temongers would be having an outright hissy fit yet they condemn others who are justly outraged and disheartened by this vile proposition.

  68. 68

    Re: PEREZ SUCKS – If you really want to marry them and have sex with them, do you? Then maybe you should marry them.

    But unlike you, I won't judge you for your beasteality.

  69. 69

    Nicely worded.

  70. 70

    So beautiful. So true.

    This is not about religion or politics. It's about LOVE & EQUALITY. Equal rights for all mankind.

  71. 71

    This pinhead admitted on The View that he doesn't even vote…..put on your big girls panties and deal……

  72. 72

    go keith!

  73. 73

    What matters is that homosexuality is an abomination of and to God.

  74. 74

    Wow Perez…while everyone else is watching O'Reilly you're one of 2 people watching Keith Olbermann. It's offensive to compare black civil rights to the rights for a guy to stick his dick in another guy's ass. Gay people need church. There is a reason so many people are against gay marriage. Stop offending me gay people!!!

  75. 75

    well said

  76. 76

    My dad thinks Keith Olbermann is "despicable." That only further convinces me that he is one of the best correspondents on TV. Keep it up, Keith!

  77. 77

    That is some powerful stuff. I hope he changed the mind of at least one of you hate mongers out there.

  78. 78

    Ignorance is so strong in this country, I'm actually ashamed to be an American sometimes.

  79. 79

    i believe there's only one true judge, and that's God…if it's all so wrong, the "sinners" will pay for it in due time, and that will be their burden to bear, not yours, so don't u spend ur days trying to deny someone else their happiness…think about all off the things you do wrong in the eyes of God…lie, steal, cheat, fornicate…God does not place weight on sin…each and every one is the same…i say…LIVE AND LET LIVE…stop the judgment…

    Re: tinyhands10
    " whos to say gay people wont get divorced over and over again too???"

    That's my point. And who would get custody of the children? BTW I don't focus on the negative. I look at the big picture.

  82. 82

    I couldn't have it said it better!

  83. 83

    I think this is beautiful. Rights have been affected and this is an opportunity, its drawing people together, for Love. How remarkable, how wonderful. The very thing they are trying to take away it actually being brought out in people more.
    Its scary as hell that the rights of some have been denied. But I think peoples response in coming together and talking more openly about love is a miracle in its self. It will give renewed strength. The people that dont break down those walls they have built up for themselves, in the misguided idea that they are 'protecting' themselves, will be left behind, while the rest of the world evolves. Cant they see the world is heading in this direction anyway. Why waste energy fighting it? Love will ultimately prevail. Because deep down Love doesnt have a face, a gender, a colour or really even a specises. Its a feeling and every living creature is capable of it; everyone is on loves side. Its the people that focus on the superficial car and not the soul driving it that will loose.

  84. 84

    I'm so moved. And I fully agree with him. It really is a shame though, the demographic he is preaching to is too busy celebrating over at Fox News that they probably didn't even see this incredible speech.


  85. 85

    YAY KEITH! he almost made me cry tonight. i am so glad you watched this!

  86. 86

    They all ready do - its called a civil union. CREEPY. This whole thing is creepy with these people - being exposed for the radical homosexual sickos we always knew they were. Yeah we saw that tolerance in San Diego. Flipping people off, screaming at people, throwing rocks, vandalizing shit - now bothering people at church - CREEPS & FREAKS - more ammo for us

  87. 87

    right on!
    i think its sad that americans have finally come soo far
    and they cant let this one go

    I couldn't even finish watching this stooopidity. Equating slaves/blacks and whites marrying with gays being allowed to marry is ludacris. Race is not chosen but there are no studies that show gays don't chose to live this way. Gays want marriage to receive monetary benefits, i.e., medical, tax right offs if kids are involved, etc. Gay/lesbian is not natural. Don't expect those of us who want to see our country not fall like the Romans to agree to gay marriage. We have to keep some order to survive. Civil union is the answer for gays and I think that's giving a lot, so that they can make decisions for their partner if neccessary.

    Re: Honey Rider

    I cannot believe a so called "Christian" can spew such hate. What do you think of this Honey Rider?

    The Bible permitted certain behavior that it is not deemed proper today: prostitution, polygamy, concubinage, treatment of women as property, very early marriage (for the girls the age was 11-13) and sex with slaves.

    There are rules in the Bible that people cannot accept and are old fashioned, impractical or against the ethics of a healthy society. Imagine if present societies started to follow some of those old rules:

    * Men can sell their daughters (Ex 21:7)
    * The nations around you can acquire male and female slaves from the nations around us (Lev 25:44)
    * Whoever works on the Sabbath shall be put to death (Ex 35:2)
    * People with a hunchback, or dwarfs, or people with eye problems shall not approach to offer the food of his God (Lev 21:20)
    * Do not eat hares or pigs. Do not touch a dead pig (Lev 11:6-8)
    * Do not sow your field with two kinds of seed; nor put on a garment made of two different materials (Lev 19:19)
    * Blasphemers shall be stoned to death (Lev 24:10-16).

    If these laws were enforced, the outrage would be cataclysmic. Yet today many people still allow a couple of specifically selected verses in the Bible to condemn the union between two people of the same sex who love one another and live in a committed and loving relationship.

  93. 93

    Douche! I dont know anyone who likes OVERBITE. Listen to the MARK LEVIN! he loves them liberal bitches..especially 'MILLHOUSE".

  94. 94

    So beautifully said….

  95. 95

    Being gay is a mental disorder..or its because you were abducted by aliens when you were young like my gay uncle. still love him tho.

  96. 96

    Re: Lick_my_Icing and other who don't like the content of this site – unlike gay people and marriage, u have a choice of which sites to read, if you don't like the content of PEREZ'S site, don't visit PEREZ'S site or simply don't click on the topics that don't interest u…it's just that simple ;-)

  97. 97

    I want to marry Keith and I don't even believe in marriage

  98. 98

    I'm speechless that was moving and true!
    All americans deserve the same rights period And as a black woman it INFURIATES me when other black people delude themselves into thinking the struggles of gays are any different than the struggles of blacks the struggles are the same.
    The government is discriminating against americans it's wrong it is against everything this country stands for. Also the fact that gay people can "pass" and we can't is a ridiculous and disgusting argument this is their country as much as it is ours WHY SHOULD THEY try to pass.It says "ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL" NOT ALL STRAIGHT MEN.
