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 see gays at the store. {the obvious ones who must let it be known to all} one usually looks angry the other looks scared to death of the other one. How can that be a life? Medical science had done proved it shortens life span and police reports show higher instances of abuse and domestic violence. Yeap sounds like a gay old time. {sorry Fred Flintstone LOL}.

They take every venue, every event, and have to gay it. They even take GOD’s sign to mankind He would not again flood the earth and use that for a flag.

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.

I looked the song up. I haven't heard it before. It was written by the two men in the 70's group Abba believe it or not. I saw the names and double checked to make sure.

Oh conservatives have given up for sure. Gimme Shelter the conservative movie that opened this weekend ranked number 22 and didn’t even make a million dollars. No wonder Hollywood doesn’t make more of these movies. What a bomb.

Well - AS USUAL- they can’t help themselves but wander into territory that shakes a defiant fist at God.

It wasn’t just that they are redefining the definition of marriage - they had to imply they had the endorsement of God Himself by putting Christian imagery up as a backdrop.

They spend the other 364 days of the year bashing Christians - faith - the bible - and traditional Christian values, but last night they actually presented themselves as holy rollers.

“Joan of Arcadia” was the TV show.

The title song, “One of Us”, was sung by Joan Osborne.

btw, she does THE definitive version of “What Becomes of the Broken Hearted” with the Funk Brothers in the salute to Motown. Just an amazing cover!!!

“Same love”? Is that why the CDC says that two-thirds of this nation's syphilis cases are found in “men who have sex with men”?

My Mom gets very angry about politics and such - its good to be informed & all - but I always tell her “Mom, put this energy into prayer & focus on Jesus”
The world is heading along in a handbasket - and we should be devout & pray for it.

From Matthew 7:

21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Many people in this country self-identify as Christian but they don’t know the Master. Many of them couldn’t even explain the gospel. Those truly born again are standing strong and they will continue to stand strong. What has happened is actually a return to an historic norm. Most throughout human history have not lived in a society that was as safe and comfortable for Christians as the United States was for the first 225 years of our history.

I’m really hard on pastors, popes, and the many silly trends within the church world because I can’t stand the thought of anyone believing he is saved when, based on God’s Word, he is not. Most religion is false religion.

I haven’t been to the movies in 28 years and likely never will again. I can’t take the sound systems. That said I did watch The Bible last year on TV and evidently so did a lot of other people.

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

Yet this is exactly the reason they give. Trouble is, most Americans no longer have a problem with the incessant barrage of rot that constitutes pop culture in this country.

It’s a song by Joan Osbourne...I have it on my iPod because of the guitar riff more than the words and sentiment. Had a discussion with a priest about it when it came out: pro-Christianity or not? No definitive conclusion...

I see. Well, I will assume that’s your general recommendation for our country because I most assuredly believe in God for only “the fool hath said in his heart, There is no God.” I not only believe in God, but Christ also, the Jesus Christ who came and died “according to the Scriptures.” All of my hope is in Him. “For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.” (Romans 11:36)

A. Queen Latifah is not an ordained minister, so no one was ‘married’, and

B. Why was Madonna dressed as Colonel Sanders?

I’m surprised Madonna didn’t defer. That young singer she sang with put her to shame.

My wife walked out of the roo and I reached for the fast forward button.

Tape these shows and watch them in 1/3 of the time.

There was some good moments. Ringo and Paul, Carole King and the young singer, Waylon, Kris and Willie.

I read in a news article that the Muzzies threatened to blow away Madonna if she did a concert in Israel. She bulked to the threat only because by that time she had Lordes and Rocco.

23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”
 
24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.
 
25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.
 
26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.

The communist takeover of america- 45 declared goals.just a couple of them.. know this..IT IS ALL PLANNED.

..
Only thing you can do is what the bible tells you to do. Come out her, my people..

I normally wouldn’t have watched, but I saw it last night; was watching with my son, a huge Daft Punk fan. It provided a teachable moment for us both. I was at first disgusted and upset by the open mocking of Christianity with the lyrics and imagery, but as he and I talked, I came to the realization that we were looking at a huge number of potentially lost souls. Suddenly, the sin took a back seat and the reality of the danger that exists for these people’s souls became paramount. I don’t like their beahvior or mocking, and fortunately, neither did he, but we should all be praying for them. (and ourselves, that we can keep the faith.) I am glad for the personal revelation, but really sad to think that this is the world my son is inheriting.

Christian pop is usually only known and promoted in Christian circles. Harder-edged Christian rock (i.e. P.O.D., Skillet, Demon Hunter, etc.) has lots of following and appreciation among secular fans as well as Christian fans. Some of those bands are really good musically. I personally find Christian pop to be too feminized, with little appeal to male audiences; you know, the so-called “Jesus is my boyfriend” music. I would rather just listen to Air Supply than most of that stuff.

I don’t listen to much Christian music, but I think Ashley Cleveland can belt it out pretty well, and I think Miriam Webster has a real bluesy voice. A few years ago I bought a couple of Hillsong albums and thought they were pretty good - kind of a wall-of-sound, cast of thousands approach. At that time, Miriam Webster was with Hillsong. I think Darlene Zszech (sp?) of Hillsong was very good
