Accepting her Best Talk Show Host People's Choice Award last night, Ellen Degeneres referenced the California Prop 8 gay marriage ban by thanking her "roommate" Portia DeRossi (zing!) but if you're still holding some racist grudge against black support for the marriage ban, knock it off: a new report shows that religion, not race, was the deciding factor against us.

Well, who knows…he may yet turn. This episode of "Bitter Lawyer" makes it look easy!
