The California Supreme Court ruled to uphold Proposition 8 yesterday, more commonly known as the ban on gay marriage, and many celebrities opposed to the outcome have spoken out in the name of same sex rights.
Reality TV stars, Kim and Khloe Kardashian, both took to their blogs to speak out about the ruling. Kim sums up her feelings by saying, “Shame on You California!” while Khloe tells her fans, “The people’s decision is unfair, plain
and simple — It’s unfortunate the majority of California voted this
