"I don't want to be married. I'm very happy with a civil partnership. If gay people want to get married, or get together, they should have a civil partnership. The word marriage, I think, puts a lot of people off. You get the same equal rights that we do when we have a civil partnership. Heterosexual people get married. We can have civil partnerships."
-- Sir Elton John to USA Today on why Proposition 8 passed in California. He blames gays for demanding marriage instead of civil unions.
