Elton John's Choice Words For Musicians Boycotting ArizonaTopics: Immigration and Border Issues, Political News and commentaries
The Arizona Daily Star reports that Elton John slammed his fellow musicians for boycotting Arizona over the controversial SB 1070 immigration law:
"We are all very pleased to be playing in Arizona. I have read that some of the artists won't come here. They are (expletive)wits! Let's face it: I still play in California, and as a gay man I have no legal rights whatsoever. So what's the (expletive) with these people?"Well, I at least agree with him on his final point - what's the (expletive) with these people? After all, they are in our country ILLEGALLY.
As for his quip about gay men having no rights whatsoever in California, that's another argument for another day. In the meanwhile, I'll still be sticking with what the U.S. Conference of Bishops have to say about "marriage" being between a man and a woman, since this is the only "right" John could be talking about that he doesn't have.
