Grammys: Macklemore and Madonna Perform 'Same Love' As 33 Couples Wed Live on Air
Hollywood Reporter ^ | 1/26/14 | Debbie Emory

Posted on 01/26/2014 11:22:09 PM PST by tcrlaf

The music giants joined forces to promote marriage equality as both gay and straight couples were married at the same time.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' "Same Love" anthem became the theme song for 33 newlyweds during the 56th Grammy Awards on Sunday night.

The gay and straight weddings were officiated by Queen Latifah while the hit song about equality was performed by the rap duo with Madonna hitting the stage with them, along with Mary Lambert and jazz artist Trombone Shorty.

"This song is not a love song for some of us but for all of us," said Latifah as she introduced the special segment.

The mass of couples exchanged rings at the same time as the singer pronounced them wed while Madonna emerged to sing her classic "Open Your Heart."

I no longer believe we can stop, or even have the will to stop, the destruction of the American family, and way of life. So many Freepers have discounted the propaganda power of the mainstream media for so long, that it is now too late to do anything about it, in dumbed-down, short-attention span, EBT-card society, straight out of "Idiocracy".

And yet, most people can't figure out why the muzzies want us all dead.....

The thing is the Muzzies always blow up regular people. If they blew up idiots like Macklemoore and Queen Latifah, I wouldn’t care at all. Everyone who participated in this satanic ceremony is an ENEMY of the country.

Should we seize power at some point in America’s future, we can redo the ceremony except with firing squads.

Hey, I had another FReeper telling me how we’ve got to give in, because we lost the 2012 election for being so intolerant. We’re zealots, you know, expect regular family life and not embracing this new (old) trend.

~~~Queen Latifah~~~

Certainly who I go to for all matters in life. /s

I sat through the entire Grammy Awards show. It was an androgenous circle jerk of cookie cutter bimbos, gratuitous sexual content, rappers telling me I’m a bro in da hood, and some celebrity appearances to give it star appeal. If you didn’t see it, you missed nothing.

Day by day we become more and more like Sodom and Gomorrah.

Not just in the mainstreaming of homosexuality, but the brazenness of it.

We were discussing this the other day. The Olympics will suck because I will have to explain to my 9 yr old, why after every event, NBC puts a homosexual person on for an interview and or asks each medal winner how they feel about homo marriage.

Disgusting. I think after a day of that I’m just taking him to the gym to shoot some hoops. Screw it.

The muzlums want anyone dead who isn’t one of them, and they want half of the muzzies dead too.

I actually enjoyed a lot of the acts up until the end, except when they screwed up the rock bands with a bunch of rappers. Then they had to ruin it with the whole same sex marriage propaganda, complete with phony stained glass “church” effect.

The Grammies are purportedly an award ceremony for musical achievement, and here we see it being used in a blatantly political and propagandist manner, far beyond any previous politicizations of the event. Earlier today, at a family birthday event, my supposedly Catholic sisters were just so gaga about this, they couldn’t wait to get home and tune in.

I enjoyed the grammys. McCartney together with Ringo, daft punk with a great Chinese piano player and Stevie wonder -— and my huge crush, pharrell in his royal Mountie hat -— a whole bunch of country greats together, Taylor swift very emotional on the piano, and Metallica! Great show! Didn’t like the gay marriage bit but at least most of the couples were man woman.

There was some good music going on.

Oh, and the handsome pharrell, did I mention him? Lol

“Should we seize power at some point in America’s future, we can redo the ceremony except with firing squads.”

...Or we could NOT murder gay people. Maybe instead of the firing squad we can preach the word of God, offer people salvation, love our neighbor... You know, what Christ would do.

Its a result of Christians abandoning the culture. We need more Christian music, movies, literature. This false worldview is winning because there is no alternative.

Nope most Christians have not given up. Hope doesn't come from this world but rather through Christ. The Bible warns us we will be hated and we are the minority.

We need more Christian music, movies, literature. This false worldview is winning because there is no alternative.

It's out there more than ever before if you simply look for it. Thanks in large part to a legally blind preacher and his wife plus Bill Gaither's efforts Southern Gospel took off and can be found on TV. Many sermons are available 24/7 as well. Family TV shows or movies? Get Direct TV or Dishnet and it's there.

The Gospel has indeed been literally spread now to all nations. The Prophecies of communication, knowledge, and travel as foretold in Daniel have come to pass. It isn't the Christians abandoning the culture rather it's a majority of non believers rejecting Jesus Christ with prejudice. The few Christian sects that have abandoned GOD's Laws you have to ask were they ever Christian churches to start with? United Church of Christ harbors some of the most radical "get GOD out of our nations face and out of public venue" so called preachers. Again were they ever Christian to start with? Some maybe perhaps.

The moral collapse was started in the 1930's a quiet planned low key infiltration from Marxist Germany that Hitler kicked out. Columbia University invited them here. From them came the 1960's campus riots and college take overs. The phrase "Make love not war" was also their product. Added to that was Lyndon Johnson's Great Society where fathers were told go do your thing the government will raise your kids and btw moms more babies means more money.

From there TV began an abrupt change. Norman Lear I think was the name of the man had a liberal agenda and thus All in the Family and other shots aimed at Conservative Christian stereotyped Dad began.

It hit the music industry hard as well. Sex, Drugs, and Rock and Roll. Rock became so tainted it encouraged kids to seek out destruction. Some left the industry in disgust at the heights of their careers over that. Remember the group Kansas? A decent bad lyrics wise. The key song writer Kery Livgren left the band after becoming a Christian. With him he took the bass player who had a serious drug addiction problem. That bass player is now a Priest. Livgren stayed involved in music but not to a destructive degree. The group America had Dan Peak. He too left the industry. The ones who lead normal lives you don't hear about. You never heard about Alice Cooper after he straightened out. Some artist in Rock and in Country as well are trying to reverse the impact and get both their secular and Christian music out there. One of the most sucessfull is Ricky Skaggs.

Don't get me wrong there is still good secular Rock out there but parents need to read the darn lyrics before allowing it in their home. Review TV as well. The Occult and the fascination with it is now all out in the open and being glorified. In my childhood Devil Worshiping was not heard of as such. It was considered kookery. My first encounter with one such person came in the Navy in the late 1970's. It's a shame too as much talent as AC/DC had they wasted it on garbage like Highway to Hell.

The Master is allowing the wheat and the chaff to grow together in the same field to harvest time when separation shall come.

"Nope most Christians have not given up."

I strongly disagree. Probably 50% of Christians are totally on-board with the Grammy awards and all other manifestations of contemporary "culture." Another 10-20% are a bit out of touch with it, but don't take it seriously. Probably only about a third of professing Christians were really offended by the Grammy's tonight.

Yep. I used to keep up with some of that.

Some of the older Rockers made it out without being destroyed. One was Skynyrd's piano player Billy Powell. He's passed on now but at some point after the plane crash he became a Christian. My music varies widely. I like Traditional & Southern Gospel, Bluegrass, Country, Folk, & old Rock from 60's - mid 80's.

It's odd the radio's don't play Rockers Gospel music. Clapton did Swing Low Sweet Chariot, Don Henley recorded Uncloudy Day, Aaron Nevile recorded The Lord's Prayer, Charlie Daniels has done numerous Christian songs. What do they play instead? The Atheist Anthem "Imagine" by John Lenon. Even some misguided preachers play it in church. Read the lyrics very depressing. No Savior, no hope, no salvation, no nothing. But hey the world will be as one... NOT!

There is this theme - even accepted by some Christians - that Christian musicians are second-rate, and that is why they don’t have an impact. But it is a lie. Christian musicians are - quite simply - discriminated against.

I watched Alaska the Last Frontier last night. So did my wife for that matter. I gave up on big four network TV 20 years ago after I got C-Band then later Direct TV. I'll watch reruns of Duck Dynasty before I'll tune into major network shows. I can find plenty of older shows to watch and have a decent video library as well. I don't watch The Grammy's because for years it's been trash and nothing more much like The Super Bowl and other staged events. I take it seriously I just don't watch it.

BTW nothing makes me angrier than being in a waiting room where some office worker has Ellen on the TV. I've seen channels get changed by those sitting in waiting rooms to another station minus Ellen.

True on post 44 and 45. Really the last Christian based song I remember getting significant air play was by Carmen "America Again". A very prophetic song.

I can also remember when Beatles records were being smashed over remarks Lenon made. There is one sure way this nation will come back to GOD and that is when the right to worship is taken away or forbidden under penalty of law. That is our most likely next page in history IMO.

There was the song - I forget the name and the artist - but the lyrics were like, “What if God was one of us, just a stranger on the bus, trying to get home.” Or something like that . . . Christian messages occasionally get through, but usually in distorted form.
