Seth MacFarlane: Prop. 8 is 'ridiculous'; Red Sox a safer bet
A federal judge in California ruled on Wednesday that Proposition 8, which says marriage is strictly between a man and a woman in the state, is unconstitutional. Seth MacFarlane already knew that.
MacFarlane said money spent championing a same-sex marriage ban was a total waste.
"The ridiculous thing about something like Prop. 8 is that it will be overturned. They put something like $40 million into that campaign, and they might as well have just bet all that money on the Red Sox," he said.
"It's wasted money because that civil rights battle will be won eventually. They'll just have to sulk ...
And that's how he feels about that.
MacFarlane has written and will soon direct "Ted," a live-action feature about a man and his teddy bear.
