In the waning days of the election, Proposition 8 continues to draw big name celebrities to the controversial ballot initiative that would reverse a May Supreme Court decision legalizing gay marriage in California.

Celebrity opposition to the gay marriage ban continues to outpace endorsements.

“This is not what America is about,” says former President Bill Clinton in a record telephone call to California voters.

“This is Bill Clinton calling to ask you to vote NO on Proposition 8 on Tuesday, November 4th,” Clinton says in his telephone message. “Proposition 8 would use state law to single out one group of Californians to be treated differently – discriminating against members of our family, our friends and our co-workers.”

“If I know one thing about California, I know that is not what you're about. That is not what America is about. Please vote NO on 8. It's unfair and it's wrong. Thank you.”

Basketball Hall of Fame inductee, five-time NBA champion and HIV/AIDS advocate Magic Johnson also recorded a similar telephone message.

Millions of registered California voters will hear Clinton's and Johnson's appeal to reject discrimination and vote against the gay marriage ban.

California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger came out in favor of gay marriage just after the Supreme Court overruled the gay marriage ban in May. And in April – a month before the court ruled – Schwarzenegger told a group of gay Republicans, “I will always be there to fight against that [a constitutional ban against gay marriage], because it should never happen.” But since May, the governor has been silent on the issue.

That is until last week, when the Log Cabin Republicans – the gay Republicans – used his words and image in a new ad against the gay marriage ban.

The sixty-second spot draws parallels between former-Governor Ronald Regan's rejection of the 1978 Briggs Initiative, which would have eliminated the right of gay and lesbian Californians to teach in the public schools, and Schwarzenegger's opposition to the proposed elimination of gay marriage in the state.

“Ronald Reagan is a conservative icon because of his efforts to spread freedom around the globe,” said Republicans Against 8 Campaign Manager Scott Schmidt. “Conservatives need to remember that Ronald Reagan was opposed to taking away people's rights. Were he still with us today, Ronald Reagan would be in good company with another Republican Governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger.”

The video effectively conveys the shared ideology of the two Republican governors. And if the gay marriage ban is to fail, it will be at the behest of the moderate voter – who better then to reach out to them than Reagan and Schwarzenegger. Still, with only one day left of campaigning, one wonders, where is the “fight” Schwarzenegger promised?

If Republicans opposed to the gay marriage ban goes against common wisdom, how about a celebrity Mormon?

Legendary former San Francisco 49ers quarterback and Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee Steve Young and his wife, Barbara, said Saturday they disagree with adding a gay marriage ban to the state constitution.

“We believe ALL families matter and we do not believe in discrimination, therefore, our family will vote against Prop 8,” a Young family statement said.

In taking a stand against the gay marriage ban, the Youngs are voting against their Mormon church. Californians Against Hate, a group that tracks Prop 8 donors, says Mormons are responsible for a majority of the giving. The group estimates Mormons have funded $22 million or 77% of the Yes-On-8 campaign.

Top Mormon leaders, known as the First Presidency, sent out a letter in June to be read at all California congregations asking members to “do all you can” to support the gay marriage ban.

“The church's teachings and position on this moral issue are unequivocal. Marriage between a man and a woman is ordained by God,” Mormon leaders said. The leaders also urged members to donate their “means and time” in support of the gay marriage ban.

Barbara Young also disclosed that she had given a gift of $50,000 to the No-On-8 campaign.

Meanwhile, USA Today, the nation's largest daily newspaper, sided with the majority of dailies who have spoken up on the gay marriage issue and called on Californian voters to reject the gay marriage ban.

In making their case against the gay marriage ban, the editors wrote, “the state's responsibility is to protect their citizens' rights.”
