    LOS ANGELES (Sept. 1icon_cool.gif - If there's two things obvious about Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, it's these things: Firstly, they really enjoy children. Secondly, they're all about supporting causes they feel strongly about. Hence, Brad Pitt's donation to help save California's gay marriage policy.
    Pitt has donated $100,000 to fight California's November ballot initiative that would overturn the state Supreme Court decision legalizing same-sex marriage.
    It's the first time voters will be asked to ban same-sex marriage in a state where gay couples already have won the right to wed. Same-sex marriage is legal in Massachusetts and California.
    It's the first time voters will be asked to decide the issue in either California or Massachusetts - the states where gays have won the right to wed.
    "Because no one has the right to deny another their life, even though they disagree with it, because everyone has the right to live the life they so desire if it doesn't harm another and because discrimination has no place in America, my vote will be for equality and against Proposition 8," Pitt said Wednesday.
    Trevor Neilson, Pitt's political and philanthropic adviser, told The Associated Press that Pitt was surprised that his colleagues in the entertainment industry had not donated more money to support the battle against Proposition 8.

    Good for him!
    If only more influential people thought the same, the world might be a totally different place.

    But he is also against Global Warming, yet flies in a private jet. He flew from Paris to Montreal for a film festival, then flew back the same day by himself. I appreciate his support, but I would also appreciate it if he was more consistent in his public beliefs and his personal actions. The money he donated will most likely be written off in his taxes. Which means it will not affect him personally. Though I do appreciate the support.
