Grammy Awards say 'we do,' get political with mass wedding, both gay and straight
Fox News ^ | 01/27/2014 | Hollie McKay

This year, the Grammy Awards weren't just about the music, they were also about making a statement in the same-sex marriage debate.

Heavily hyped in the hours leading up to Sunday night's show, 34 couples -- both gay and straight -- exchanged rings and said "I do," as officiated on stage by Queen Latifah. The actress/rapper/talk show host was recently deputized by Los Angeles County to legally conduct wedding ceremonies and will sign the marriage certificates for each couple.

The event took place on a stage set to resemble a giant chapel with stained-glass windows during a performance by hip-hop duo Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, in which they sang their hit tune "Same Love," a song embraced by the LGBT community last year.

One of the couples who tied-the-knot was Lewis's sister Laura and her boyfriend Alex.

"The right-wing conservatives think it's a decision/And you can be cured with some treatment and religion/Man-made rewiring of a predisposition," Macklemore rapped. "Playing God, aw nah here we go/America the brave still fears what we don't know/And God loves all his children, is somehow forgotten/But we paraphrase a book written 3500 years ago."

Madonna later joined the matrimonial moment in an all-white suit, singing a portion of her heyday hit "Open Your Heart."

Everything was fine (including the reunion performance of Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr ).

No controversies in the show until they showed this performance.

Any straight guy who got married during this, needs to have their Man Card revoked.

The entertainment industry, including the unholy trifecta of the music biz, Hollywood, and Silicon Valley, are Marxist propaganda tools. They have never been as openly brazen as they are today. This is a sick ritual designed to brainwash kids. Records show this was one of the most watched Grammy award ceremonies in years. The goal is to normalize and brainwash children, and it can all be traced back to CPUSA. They’ve infiltrated the entire country God damn it!

The only silver lining is the entire entertainment world is dying a slow death from the illegal download industry. They lose trillions in profits every year. It’s why they are trying to stealth push things like SOPA and PIPA.

There’s no room for any sympathy for the enemies of America. This entire thing is satanic.

I skipped it out of indifference, now I’m GLAD (not be confused with GLADD) that I skipped the Grammys.

Has anyone seen the ratings for this year’s Crummy awards show? Did viewers tune out in droves, like they have for the last decade or so?

I think the performance reunion of the last two living Beatles had something to do with it.

Never watched, hate the music, hate the culture. Very disappointed to learn that Jedadiah Bila/Bula (sp) supports gay marriage, heard her say it a couple weeks ago.

Again tonight, on Hannity she says she is a right wing Conservative, but that she supports all that crap, and then she goes on to say that many many right wing conservatives (her term) feel same as her, and that we have to embrace this stuff to start winning elections

NO THANKS, I used to think I liked this girl

Not relevant. I won't watch any show that includes homosexuality as a way of normalizing perversion.

Didn’t intend for that inference. I was speaking to the consequences of placating the fallacy of homosexual ‘marriage’.

Hopefully she’ll stay in New Zealand and stay away from the poisonous Hollywood culture.
