Last year California's citizens acknowledged that marriage was between one man and one woman. Many people recognize that marriage between people of the same sex is impossible. Marriage is not a social construct but a part of human nature and no one has the power to change human nature.
Penn, in his speech said "I think that it is a good time for those who voted for the ban against gay marriage to sit and reflect and anticipate their great shame and the shame in their grandchildren’s eyes if they continue that way of support. We’ve got to have equal rights for everyone."
What is so shameful about acknowledging that marraige is between one man and one woman?
Equal rights for everyone?
We already do have equal rights with regard to marraige. Everyone is allowed to get married, no one is excluded from marraige. There are a few guidelines which everyone must follow. You can't marry your dog or your cat, someone who is already married, someone underage, your brother or sister, your mother or father, or someone of the same sex.
Watch the video and see Penn's embarrassing moment.
