Former game show host Chuck Woolery has
criticized a federal court's ruling declaring unconstitutional
California's gay marriage ban, Proposition 8, The
Huffington Post reported.
Last week, the Ninth Circuit Court of
Appeals ruled that the 2008-voter approved amendment violated the
constitutional rights of gay and lesbian couples who wish to marry in
“Majority rules,” Woolery said
during the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in
He then dismissed the notion that
minorities need constitutional protections.
“We were born with natural rights.
We don't need civil rights. [African-Americans] don't need civil
rights. They don't need them. They have inalienable rights granted
by God in the Constitution.”
“I mean, I'm discriminated against
all the time. I don't care. It doesn't bother me. [I'm
discriminated against] because I'm old. I'm too old to get a job as
a game show host. They say, well, the guy's 71 and in five years
he'll be 76. And I'm a one percenter, and I'm absolutely
discriminated against as a one percenter.”
