Conservatives Flip Out Over Gay Marriage at Grammy Awards

i watch the Grammys yesterday I don’t
really care much about award shows but there were some musical performances I
was interested in checking out I don’t really care about award show
specifically and that at the end to the show
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis did their song same love and the big deal was that they
were going to be doing I guess thirty three couples we’re getting married some of them were
gay cock gay couples lesbian couples and I don’t miss the song is OK
Macklemore is OK but the right-wing anger around the kinda mainstreaming up marriage
equality is really something to take a look at
Drudge Report all day yesterday and today had a headline gay marriage at the Grammys oh my god
it’s shocking Louis today the game ease instead a the
Grammys the right wing is flipping out I I
thought sweet late last night from Ben for dissent
who’s this conservative host who a but he just the
young conservative host and he tweeted that the Grammys showed
intolerance towards Christians and Bible believers I tweeted back saying business this is
not intolerance it’s abundantly clear that marriage equality is going
mainstream in a buncha people start getting involved in the tweet storm
Louis I the watching what is happening to anti-gay right-wingers as we see more
and more states legalize marriage equality and we see an
awards show where not everybody in the crowd is a super liberal but it’s just the
quality this is just not a big deal we’re moving past it it’s very interesting to see those those
retrograde right-wingers who just are very angry
Louis the out there they’re basically Sol combusting it’s great but the if I were had the
opportunity to get married at the Grammys I think I
would have to you have to decline I although you know for I i mean I guess
the the publicity is good it’s it’s very
popular but I hate the Grammys David I think it’s
the world’s biggest piece of crap you would get married you you would be
interested in getting married at the MTV Video Music Awards alright now that is almost an equally large piece of crap I alright so in any case I it was the
reaction I I did enjoy seeing that

  • Gay marriage is on the rise and no amount of Conservative biblical bullshit is going to stop it. I'm just glad it's come to the turning point because we have more pressing issues that need to be addressed sooner than later.

  • The Grammys have awards for Gospel music and Christian Contemporary music. There is no pleasing these egotistical brats.

    The fucking Pope even says "Who am I to judge?", but these sociopaths just keep clamoring to be burned in a hell of their own making.

  • My physical reaction was smiling and nodding my head to an awesome segment.
    My mental reaction was "Oh, I'm going to fucking LOVE the giant conservative backlash from this."

  • While I do see what they were trying to dp, in a society with ture equality a person would then be able to go on stage after that and express dislike for gay people, right? Free speech is a two way street and I think everyone (Republican, Democrat, flying spaghetti monster) forgets that sometimes.

  • "Intolerance towards Christians and Bible believers"?
    What a stupid argument.  Treating minority groups just like others can never be intolerance.

  • Same sex marriages destroying the sanctity of marriage? Kanye and Kim are married… Nothing more needs to be said.

  • That song was so brilliantly performed and produced. The faces of love among the couples getting married was the picture worth a thousand words. The support of the talented folks at the Grammys was priceless. Peace, love and equality!

  • Being tolerant toward a group of people is being intolerant to anyone who hates them. Yeah just like freeing the slaves was intolerant to slave owners. got-cha.

  • We need to stop discriminating against these poor people. Stop gay marriage! If gays didn't get married anymore, the conservatives would have to go back to hating the blacks and the Jews. 

  • Why is gay marriage so mainstream? Can't they just stop asking for all this attention? Exactly why I oppose. Give them the right of way and they take advantage. Smh. -.-

  • Anything that makes the right wing flip out is fine by me…and I love seeing the ire indignation that they display..the wankers that they are… But that said , I agree with Louis…the Grammys are the worst piece of shit going and have nothing to do with the music and everything to do with the business.
    They're one big circle jerk

  • His co-anchor is hilarious.
    'The world's biggest piece of crap.'

    You don't have to be anti-gay to think it was a very tacky pukeathon.

  • My takeaway from all this? 
    Madonna in a cowboy hat.

    I mean … just … I didn't even watch the grammys, and now, just …

    Madonna in a cowboy hat.  That's all I got.

  • All awards ceremonies are self indulgant tosh & the thought of getting hitched at one,(if I believed in marriage),leaves me cold.BUT if that's how people want to express what's meant to be the most important day of their lives then let 'em.And if it pisses off the fundies then even better…I'll go with that.

  • I think they found the satanism followed by beyonce being a slut, inappropriate. Also the 33 couples going back to masonic nonsense, Had Katy perry and 3x 6 mafia. I think it was mixing it with satanic ideas like they do every year is just plain disrespectful

  • This kind of reaction by anti-gay people should be expected, I mean, it's what Nixon exploited from racists during the Southern Strategy. This feeling of victimization, that their world is slipping away in favor of this "depraved" new world that doesn't align with their views. That said, I'll be very surprised if Republicans that aren't locked down for reelection used gay rights as a wedge issue again. It'll be interesting to see the difference in national platform from the safe seats vs. the contested seats.

  • Of course conservatives are going to flip out… they flip out at everything hollywood does these days.  Did they think Hollywood wasn't liberally biased at this point?  Pop culture drives ideas forward because film making is all about the next best thing… taking on stories and roles of people/places/realities that COULD or SHOULD exist… thinking outside our traditional view of the world.

    These ideas are not conservative, that's for certain.

  • Welcome to the 21st century right wingers. Get used to it as we are only going to become more and more liberal. We are moving forward like it or not. In 20 years it will be legal in every state along with legalized marijuana, min wage laws and freedom of choice for all women. You could always move to Russia where your values will be shared.

  • people who hate on the grammies if they had there way, wouldn't allow the entertainment industry to exist at all because stuff like that destroys their petty ideals about ''human brotherhood''. Brotherhood is a cult. Individualism is freedom.

  • Once again, leftists are intolerant for not tolerating the intolerance on the right. Wrap your mind around that one. 

  • At the CMAs they will be marrying boys and girls , like nature intended! Of course they are first cousins and brothers and sisters

  • If there are religious nujobs claiming persecution at the wedding on the Grammy show, it makes it so much better!  LOL

    Take it, bitches!

  • Yes, we right wingers are self combusting. I think I'd like to marry my dog at next year's show since we're constantly pushing the boundaries.

  • The Conservatives are just jealous because there all so ugly that no straight person in their right mind would want to marry them anyway. They are not hot enough to be gay so they are firmly anti-gay.

  • One more time.  Marriage is between a man and a woman.  Homosexual marriage does not exist.  Fudge packers and lickity splitters can certainly have their civil unions, but make no mistake,  marriage is between a man and a woman.

  • If everyone was gay, the human race would be extinct in a generation.  That is not natural.  You cannot refute that argument, don't even try.

  • Romans 1:26-27
    26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
    27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

  • Jesus said "So it will be at the end of the age,the angels will come forth and take out the wicked from among the righteous, and will throw them into the furnace of fire, in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth."Matthew 13:49-50. Jesus also said "You are my friends if you do what I command you." John 15:14. Jesus taught that the only way to be saved is to choose him as your Lord and Master, repent and believe that he died for the sins of his people on the cross see John 14:6.

  • God says that homosexuality is an abomination in Leviticus 18:22 Jesus said that marriage is between one man and one woman in Matthew 19:4-6 in Genesis 19 God roasted to death a bunch of homosexuals and Romans 1 speaks against it as well.

  • This is why the Republican Party is falling. When they hate on gay marriage, it hurts them in the polls come election time. They're just people

  • I do believe the Grammy's went a little overboard. But I'm proud people are recognizing the gay community as something more tolerable and something to be proud of. My God loves all.

  • Wrong! I am conservative and 100% pro L.G.B.T. I guess being trans, I have to be, huh? Also, Log Cabin Republicans sued the U.S. government to overturn don't ask, don't tell (which was signed into law by a democrat).
