Pete Wentz and the guys from Fall Out Boy have joined Brad Pitt and Stephen Spielberg in making a big-time donation to opposing Proposition 8. The initiative, which will appear on the California state ballot during the November election, seeks to overturn an earlier ruling legalizing gay marriage. The rockers donated $50,000 to the organization “Vote No For Prop 8“.

Earlier last week, Pete Wentz blogged on the topic saying,

“There are a lot of causes out there — a lot of ‘good’ fights to be fought. I think proposition 8 is pretty lame — as many others do too. It’s fucking lame.”

Well said, Pete. Well said.
