Give up, gay marriage haters: Grammys mass wedding proves you've lost
The Los Angeles Times ^ | January 27, 2014 | Robin Abcarian

The movement against gay marriage is starting to seem kind of silly and outdated, no?

The Grammys mass wedding moment Sunday — where 33 couples, including a sprinkling of gay ones, were joined in matrimony by Queen Latifah — might have been a stunt, but it was an effective one. There’s no better way to normalize gay marriage than to simply show it.

Who would have thought we live in a world where the prim and traditional Rose Parade would break this ground before the Grammys got around to it?

On Sunday, the traditional wedding processional was replaced by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis singing “Same Love,” a plea for equal rights that has become an anthem in the gay community. It begins with Macklemore recounting himself as a third-grader, questioning his sexuality because he's just like his gay uncle — artsy and neat. He muses about whether the hip-hop world would hate him if he were gay, deplores the casual use of anti-gay slurs and concludes:

... a certificate on paper isn't gonna solve it all But it's a damn good place to start.

Yes it is.

Same-sex marriage is still legal in only 17 states and the District of Columbia. But signs abound that opposition is crumbling....

They don’t want it voted on, they want it forced upon society. They choose what to call “equal rights”, while ignoring their own heavy-handed use of tyranny.

The only winners that will come out of ‘gay marriages’ will be ‘gay divorce’ lawyers.

Are the Grammy awards relevant at all? I remember the Simpsons in 1993 where Homer attempts to give one away to a delivery kid, and he throws it away.

I think The Judge of Judges has yet to speak again to this issue. Last time the ruling was definitive, but the usual suspects seem to have disregarded that.

But watch the usual suspects report a spike in "married" AIDS patients (the insurance and benefits are what this is about, not "marriage").

If Divorce, adultery, and fornication hadn’t dragged traditional marriage down into the gutter the gays would never have wanted it. It’s time for an affirming of real marriage—chastity before marriage and fidelity afterward. Don’t dumb it down and they won’t want it.

Star Wars proved Vader blew up Alderon too.

What? The Grammys are no less a scripted creation.

Also, What could anyone in that audience do BUT applaud? they would be blacklisted it they didn’t. And they knew it. So did the people that created this fiasco...to force all these celebs ‘on record’ so to speak.

Give it up, Romans

Caligula’s appointment of his horse as a Senator shows times have changed and you need to stop resisting progressive changes in public morality

Now Senators, be patriotic citizens and send your wives and daughters out to the whore houses to work off the public debt for the glory of Rome.

What good does it do a man to gain the world and lose his soul?
WE haven’t lost anything. It is they who have lost and what they have lost can never be regained.

Those who did not agree should have picked themselves up and walked out rather than sell their souls and allow themselves to be prostituted.

No “haters” amongst the lawyers. They are looking forward to cashing in on all the new divorce business gay marriage is going to bring them.

I totally agree. But considering that they are a bunch of whores to the dollar, there was never a real danger of that happening.

Hell, most people on the right can’t give up their TV shows and make any excuse to keep sending that monthly $100 indulgence straight to the libs propaganda machine, so the odds of the propagandists themselves taking a stand has a brother named “Slim” and a sister named “None”.

The only thing that stunt proved was that the small percentage of Americans that are gay like to flaunt their lifestyle in public arenas ... and then they say it’s none of our business. Go figure.

Give up, gay marriage haters: Grammys mass wedding proves you've lost

Several things wrong with this headline...

1) Don't know who the "haters" are.

2) There is no such thing as "gay marriage". Marriage is a covenant comittment between one man and one woman.

A corollary headline in the 1930's-1940's would be...

Cannot wait for the Gay Marriage at Superbowl half time, or during the seventh inning stretch of a baseball game.

The punk journolist needs to understand the militant Gays can get in our face, but most will not accept/condone there perversion

Haters? I wouldn't waste my time. It's not "hate", it just a Darwin thing.

God hates the sin but loves the sinner. But woe to the sinner who promotes his/her sin and encourages the whole world to participate. Well, you know, in Germany it became “normal” to hate the Jew, so much so that it became acceptable practice to publicly burn them out and beat and kill them in the street. America the Gay, No fear of God... Judgement will fall, it is coming.

It wasn't shocking enough.

Hollywood loves to give the finger to traditional Americans but we're so used to their recent antics we're yawning.

Maybe next year's show they can wear little thongs, hump chains and kick small kittens. Come on Hollywood try harder to shock us, we're getting bored out here in flyover land.

How screwed up is it that the desire to put one’s penis into another man’s butt has been deemed a trait worthy of protection and celebration? Is half the country just stupid or are they just apathetic, believing that this has no impact on their society and their children’s lives?

I’ll give them this: there are apparently a lot of wealthy/powerful homosexuals in the media, entertainment and politics. Less than 3% of the population, but the attention paid to them is remarkable. All the more so because of the acts that define their lifestyle.

Actually, the facts are much more depressing: gay "marriage" was implemented in:
-6 states by court decisions
-8 states plus DC by legislators, and
-3 states by voters.
So, things are already worse than we'd like to think.

How do sexual perverts, or for that matter normal people getting married, have to do with the Grammys? This is people with an agenda trying to influence our thought processes. It is wrong for them to do.
