Two important statements from Barbra this week

Supreme Court Decision On Same Sex Marriage

By Barbra Streisand.

The decision of the Supreme Court to recognize that same sex Americans should enjoy the right to any state sanctioned marriage is a cause for celebration.

This is a triumph for love and commitment. I salute the tireless work of the activists who worked to make this day happen.


Join with the Humane Society International to Protect Dogs in China


By Barbra Streisand.

I would like to join with the Humane Society International in its effort to draw world attention to the barbarity of an annual festival in China celebrating... yes, celebrating... the human consumption of dogs. Dogs became domesticated, became in every true sense our best friends, very early in the evolution of our species. Part of human civility is that we don't condone the slaughter of our best friends.

It is important that pressure has been brought to bear both outside of China and from within that country which has reduced the number of our beloved friends who perish in this tragic event. But any continuation of this practice is sorrowful and distorts how we regard one of our most ancient cultures.

Dogs, give us unconditional love. You don't kill anything that gives you unconditional love.
