The No on Prop 8 ads TV launched today (see above) In a statement quoted by Daily Variety Spielberg and Capshaw said:

By writing discrimination into our state constitution, Proposition 8 seeks to eliminate the right of each and every citizen in our state to marry regardless of sexual orientation. Such discrimination has no place in California’s constitution, or any other.
