Brad Pitt–who we’re hoping will do in Maine what he did in California to fight Prop 8, that is donate money, raise the profile of marriage equality, and encourage to vote No on Maine’s Prop 1–had this to say about American theocrats when he appeared on Bil Mahr:

You have a group of people telling other people how to live their lives…To the three who are watching, I just say you have to, you really have to check what country you’re living in because the freedom that allows you to practice religion is the same freedom you’re stepping on. That’s not right….And I want to add… if there was a nation of gay married couples that were telling you you couldn’t practice your religion, I’d be speaking up for you, too…. So, let’s stop the nonsense.
