Donny and Marie Osmond AGAINST Prop 8???
Can anyone verify this? I have read on some message boards that Donny and Marie were strongly against Prop 8 but can not find any proof of this. You would think because of their fame it would make some news but I can not see where they have spoken out against it. If so, I tip my hat to them. Has anyone heard their views on this?

1. I found this:
http://www.eonline.com/uberblog/the_awful_truth/b66995_...

But isn't it ironic that my husband, Jon (who's a recovering Mormon), and I picketed some Mormon churches this weekendhe put the pics up on Facebookand next thing you know, a member of the most famous Mormon family of them all, the Osmonds, contacted Jon and said right on, complaining about how intolerant her own clan is?

This, while on the official family Osmond blog, it's clearly stated to vote yes on Prop 8. Just goes to show, don't believe everything you read.

2. I wouldn't doubt it. They tend to have a "off-Hands" approach to many things.
I think it (probably) has something to do with their being in show Business for so long.
They've seen things that are a lot more Liberal than their Mormon Associates.

But privately, may be saying otherwise.

But the blog referenced above apparently no longer exists.

But is now here:
http://strengtheningfamilies.blogspot.com /

Can't find anything to confirm the post above, though.

But found this:

MySpace.com - Marie Osmond - LAS VEGAS, Nevada - Country / Pop ...
MySpace music profile for Marie Osmond with tour dates, songs, videos, ... Vote YES on proposition 8 to preserve our freedoms, rights and children for the ...
http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.vi... - 167k

Can't get a good archive of it. That COULD be someone who posted a message on Marie's MySpace page, rather than a message from Marie herself.

4. According to Celebrity Myspace,
neither one of them have an official Myspace. I also searched but came up empty on them saying anything one way or another.

5. So, we don't have conclusive evidence of their stance either way.
I suggest someone attend Marie's show at Haraford's and ask her from the audience.

6. Unless they publicly state otherwise, one can safely assume that they supported Prop 8.
