Singer Michelle Shocked's words about gays are coming back to haunt her.
By late Monday evening, hours after the spread of news about Michelle Shocked's anti-gay tirade at Yoshi's San Francisco, most venues on her national Short Sharp Shocked tour - including Los Angeles, Santa Cruz, Napa, Portland, Eugene, Boulder and Chicago - had canceled.
Mike Green, communications director of the Kings Place Music Foundation, under whose auspices she was to play in London, wrote to inquiring reader Lisa Woolf that they'd been in contact with her agent in Europe "and will speak with him as soon as possible, but it is very unlikely that she will tour again after what has happened. I must say that it's very unfortunate for all involved."

It began with Andrew Dice Clay... It will end when people stop cowering.
You can’t upset The Tolerant Ones!
Control the language, Control the culture.
A famous guy once said that in some obscure book....1984 I think it was. No biggie. No one believed him anyway...
I have no idea who this chick is, but I’m curious about exactly what she said that got the homosexual mafia’s panties in a bunch.
I thought she was a lesbian. I’d say a good chunk of her fans are.
...Michelle Shocked's anti-gay tirade at Yoshi's San Francisco...
According to Fox:
“I live in fear that the world will be destroyed if gays are allowed to marry,” Shocked told the crowd at Yoshis, according to San Francisco news site, sfist.
She reportedly added: You can go on Twitter and say Michelle Shocked says God hates f**s.
took a lot of cahonies to rant like that.. or a few too many umbrella drinks. all the local media is in a tizzy covering it.. it beats police chasing and shooting suspects, it’s a jungle out there in the bay area yaknow.. the underbelly of the left.. where all the slime hangs..
Good for her. Her reward will not come on earth, but it will come.
She’s a friend of mine on Facebook, and I posted a message of support for her. Of course the slimeballs attacked me, using the typical accusations of hate and intolerance. I replied that as a Christian I beieve you love the sinner but hate the sin.
I read that she said the world will end if we have Gay marriage. Didn’t I read that in Romans chapter 1 as well.
Soon we may all be brought before tribunals and questioned about our thoughts on soddomites.
I think it’s a play on her surname
I have personal experience with Tolerant, Open-minded “Progressives” (especially ones in my family). Know the Nature of God- Slow to anger and quick to forgive? Progladytes are the exact opposite.
All Christians know that Romans 1:26-27 says that homosexual behavior leads to a depraved mind. But Democrats are loud and insist on conflict, which weak conservatives prefer to avoid.
Certain groups are protected, others are not.
Liberals are fascists. Dare to speak outside the thoughts they allow, and they will attempt to ruin your life.
I think it’s accurate to say she literally shocked her audience. The word “shock” predates the connotation with electricity and, in this case her statement produced a strong sense of upset or shock in her audience. This is literally true as can be gauged by the reaction.
Whoa! - you’re right. They really were shocked.
That reminds me of this bit from a piece by Mark Steyn: That comes with the grasping of
binders, literally grasping in Joe Bidens case (and literally literally, not Bidenesque literally),
as a major campaign theme.
