The mass wedding held at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards on Sunday night has sparked controversy and been criticized by many as a political stunt to promote same-sex marriage...
Christian Gospel singer Natalie Grant has revealed that she left the Grammys early, and many have taken her early exit to mean she was protesting against the events.

I've tried to read all of the comments on my previous post but I can't respond to them all. Most of you have always been so supportive and encouraging to me & I'm grateful. It does sadden me when people argue, judge and hurl insults at each other from both sides of the fence. I'm not going to engage in arguments, but just have a few things I'd like to say:
I NEVER said I left during any particular performance. I only said I left early.
I never pointed out any one particular performance, I only said I had many thoughts about the entire show, which were best left inside my head and that is where they will stay. So those who say I condemned one performance but then condoned others clearly did not read the post.
What I DID say is this: I am honored to be a part of the Christian music community. I've had many people throughout my career ask why I never tried to go in to mainstream music and last night was a beautiful reminder that I love singing about Jesus and FOR Jesus.
I've judged no one. I hate no one. And I believe that every person has been created in the image of God. I will never stand on a street corner and wave a sign, I won't use my platform to engage in political arguments that will only divide and not unite. I will continue to pray that my life will be my message. I do have my own personal convictions that I live by, and I will continue to work out my own salvation with fear and trembling before the Lord. (Philippians 2:12)
I was honored to be nominated for 2 Grammy awards last night. I'm so grateful that NARAS and The Grammys continue to recognize the contribution that gospel and Christian music make to the world. And I'm so thrilled for those who won in my categories. And I can say that with all sincerity.
My last thought:
"I am not ashamed of the gospel of Jesus for it is the power of God who brings salvation to ALL who believe." Romans 1:16
God Bless Natialie Grant!
That’s an awful lot of words instead of just saying “I believe marriage is between a man and a woman, and I felt that leaving early (after the performances) was the appropriate choice for me”.
Tolerance is not enough.
You must CELEBRATE Sodomy, or else you’re a hater.
Kinda doubt gays arre listening to Christian music so walking out during the gay “marriage” won’t hurt Christian musicians whose music labels are prolly Christian owned.
This thread demands your input. I was going to use your comments, but felt it was better to come straight from you.
I read that she may have left earlier...during Katie Perry’s witchcraft performance.
I dunno...didn’t see the show.
It is a political issue in that they want to promote Marxism by inventing another victim group. Nothing else matters to communists except destroying the church and America.
Pray America is Waking
Wonder if there will be a gay marriage tomorrow at the speech Obama is giving??!!!

I’m surprised any Christian artists bother to show up for the Grammys...how many awards are handed out (during the prime time telecast) for an “inspirational” song, performer or album (to use the recording industry’s favored term? The answer: zero. All gospel awards were handed out before the telecast began because CBS and the music industry don’t want anything that might promote Christianity, or take away from the freak parade that made up most of the show.
Within a few years, Gospel acts will be lumped in with musical performers from other religions, so they can further dilute the category. And at that point, most gospel acts will simply refuse to enter the competition and the progressives who run the entertainment business can notch another victory.
She’s way too defensive.
notice that she couldn’t bring herself to tell the truth about sin.
I agree. The mission of all Christians is to be a witness and spread the Gospel. There is no room for neutrality in the war against Satan.
