Geffen Says Gays Only Themselves To Blame

Published on November 11, 2008 with No Comments

Music and movie mogul David Geffen insists gays only have themselves to blame for the new same-sex marriage ban in California – because they didn’t lobby the state’s African-American community for support.

As a result, the gay DreamWorks executive fears black people voted against same-sex nuptials last week on religious grounds – and it was that vote that cost the gay community their marriages.

Geffen told website TheDailyBeast.com: “That was our mistake. So many African-Americans don’t look at gay marriage as a civil rights issue, they look on it as a religious one. And we, for whatever reason…fear? Arrogance? Complacency? We did not do enough outreach to them. We need to begin a dialogue with them, because we should be putting this back on the ballot every election every year until we win.”
