Christian Rapper Responds To Macklemore’s “Same Love”, Gets Death Threats From LGBT Community
therightscoop.com ^ | 2/16/14 | therightscoop

Posted on 02/17/2014 7:05:43 AM PST by Texas Eagle

Admittedly I don’t listen to Christian rap or rap of any kind for that matter, but after watching this news report I had to hear Bizzle’s new song which is a well thought out response from a Christian perspective to Macklemore’s song “Same Love.”- (the song the played at the Grammys for the big gay wedding.)

And let me say Bizzle’s new song doesn’t pull any punches at all. It treads in love but it doesn’t tread lightly. It’s quite powerful actually.

But first, watch this news report by KHOU on how Bizzle’s life is being threatened because of his new song:

But understand this, that in the last days
There will come times of difficulty
For people will be lovers of self
Lovers of money, proud, arrogant
Abusive, disobedient to their parents
Ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable
Slanderous, without self-control, brutal
Not loving good, treacherous, reckless
Swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God
Having the appearance of godliness
But denying its power

Woe to he who calls evil good and good evil…

[Verse: Bizzle]
It’s funny how the media portrays things
They really pushing hard for this gay thing
And it’s so wicked how they manipulate things
Can’t even disagree without them making it a hate thing
I say you wrong, and you holla “hate” instantly
But you say we the ones who don’t tolerate differences
There’s a whole lot of things I could say really
But, see your hypocrisy is something I could paint vividly
Saying, it’s the way you was born, and I’m sure that
You lust just like I do just in a different form
But I’m married so if I give into mine, I’m a cheater
If you give into yours, you just fight to make it legal
You rather fight God, then fight sin
The Bible is alright, until it calls what you like sin
And I feel so disrespected that you were so desperate
You would compare your sexual habits to my skin (What?!?)
Calling it the new black
Tell me where they do that
They hung us like tree ornaments, where were you at?
They burned us for entertainment, you go through that?
Mom’s raped in front of they kids, while they shoot dad
Ever been murdered just for trying to learn how to read bro? (Nope.)
A show of hands?
I didn’t think so
So, quit comparing the two. It ain’t the same fight
You can play straight. We can never play white
Using black people as pawns for yo’ agenda
And these sell out rappers will do whatever you tell em’
Skirts on stages, campaigning for that black vote
Afraid to be blackballed, so they play that role
You were never oppressed, the devil was a liar
The only thing oppressed was yo sexual desire
Keeping yo’ desires oppressed is so lame to you
But when you get married, that’s what you expect yo’ mate to do
It angers you, if I compare you to a pedophile
Cuz’ he sick, right?
And you’re better how?
(Man, I ain’t choose this.)
You think he chose that?
(But, I was born this.)
Well, prove he wasn’t born that
But, you were never a girl
He was once nine
So at one time in his life, it was just fine
What makes your loss right?
I’m not buying it
So, put him in that same trash can you threw that bible in
See how that cycle is?
Nobody wants to repent of they evil
So, we all try justifying it
And you say it’s about rights, but you lying tho
Domestic partnerships gave you rights a long time ago
God created marriage, when he did, he defined it tho’
So why is it you want we He created, but deny Him tho?
It’s not wicked enough, switching the definition?
You want it done by a Christian in a church he worships in?
And that rainbow you using as a gay pride symbol (you stole that)
It represents a covenant with God if you didn’t know
Check Genesis 9:13 for the info
Homie, the war is spiritual, you don’t know what you in fo’
I ain’t sayin’ yo’ sin is worse, but it is sin tho
The Lord took the punishment for it all on Him tho (Praise God)
We just gotta repent tho
The problem is if you don’t call it sin, then
You walk as if there’s nothing to repent for
Let’s recap:
We all wicked and desire sin
But imagine a world where no one kept there desires in
If something was called right cuz’ simply we desired it
When yo’ right goes against my right, who’s right would win
As for being born that way
I should never see ya’ll
Ever see use a word like “retard”
To describe someone who was born a little differently than we are
I guess down syndrome really isn’t a thing ya’ll
What do we call yo’ syndrome?
Oh, that term is offensive now when it hits home?
So, what gives you the right to call the way he was born a defect?
I call yours a defect, you feel it’s disrespect
You don’t believe in God?
Hey, the universe says if we all gay
We either die off or have to do it God’s way
And God loves you no matter what you struggle with
At least struggle tho, don’t just give up and quit
Forget how you were born
We were all born in sin
But Christ died for your sin
You can be born again (Praise God for forgiveness)
We were all born in sin
But Christ died so we can be born again
Hallelujah!

[Outro: Bizzle]
And I never want to act like
All gay people are the same because that’s ignorant
But at the same time
What I won’t allow you to do
Is paint this beautiful picture
Like we don’t have people from the LGBT community out here
Running up in churches, disrupting services
Kissing on the pulpit
Out here attacking old ladies
Throwing crosses down and stomping em’
Violently assaulting people
So don’t take my most aggressive lines that you know are to that group
And try to apply it to the friendliest
Lovingest gay person because that’s not the case
And to that struggling Christian right now
Struggling with homosexuality
Fight the good fight soldier
No matter what anybody says
We all have different desires
We all are drawn toward different sin
And my desire might not be your desire
But I have a desire that’s just as strong for another sin
And I have to fight it day in and day out
And sometimes I win and sometimes I lose
Sometimes I stand and sometimes I fall
But fight the good fight
God is worth it
God bless you
No hate about it
I love you

hollyweird mistakes hedonism for “born that way”.

so these hollywood types were “born” to like heroin and thus have to legally consume heroin? drugs? etc?

It has all the validity of infidelity excuses. (ie monogamy is sooooo 21st century ago.)

Just like you can't be a democrat and honestly call yourself a Christian....

I don't see how you can be a Christian and a jabbering murderer at the same time.

Death Threats From LGBT Community

A new movie title for a horror flick: Killer Queers Within Our Midst (Based loosely on Killer Klowns From Outer Space).

Yeah. Kinda weird how NY Mayor Bill de Blasio's wife and actress Anne Heche were once "born that way", but, now they're both married to dudes.

Well, I'm not a hundred percent sure Heche and Harrison Ford are married.

Or even if they're still together.

But, still, they were both lesbians at one time and now they're not.

Look, if you’re going to criticize a hate group, you need to get your ducks in a row, first. This means that when the hate flows in your direction, you are ready to record it and respond forcefully, by doing things like contacting police agencies.

Imagine when ALL the positions of authority in the military, police, and education are taken of by the libtard homosexual advocates.

If you want something to compare read “The Pink Swastika” about what happens when people with no moral compass are put in charge.

Actually, that thought has been occurring to me more and more lately.

I wonder at the same time how it is that Moose Limbs are gaining power and influence in the same arenas.

It just seems incongruous.

Yeah, I'm not crazy about "Christian rock" either, but at least the rock musicians they emulate aren't a bunch of murderers....however, they are drug crazed womanizers.

Besides...rap isn't even music.

You may be right, but I'm kinda partial to those magnificent pipe organs, classical choral arrangements, as well as a soul-stirring Full-Gospel Chorus with Gospel combo, piano/Hammond.

Reminds of a guy I knew that hated any sort of contemporary Christian music because they were too much like those worldly rock stars, but he loved his “Elvis Sings Gospel Greats”.

Same bolt of cloth as Jimmy Swaggart on TV preaching against Christian rock music then running a commercial for his new Southern Gospel album.

I agree. A lot of people don’t like Gregorian chant (it is repetitive and can be boring) or Bach. I don’t like heavy metal. I do like Christians and the people who try to communicate to people who otherwise might not be listening. This is poetry, not the best but pretty good and chanted. To lump all people into one category is amazing.

______________________________________________

I’m a 50 year old white guy so I wasn’t raised on it. I like some Christian rap, not much of it, I like some southern gospel, but after a couple of songs it all sounds the same.

What matters is the message, and is the performer walking the walk; if you look hard enough you’ll find some deficiencies in these areas in every genre of Christian music.

The most popular Christian rapper is Lacrae, and he has a tremendous personnel testimony: http://www.iamsecond.com/seconds/lecrae/ and while I don’t like all his music, he’ll reach people for the Lord who are never going to listen to organ music.

No I didn't...he did, by becoming a "rapper".

"Traditional" Rap is all about bitches, hos, killing cops and getting even wit whitey. Trying to get your message out by emulating these murdering thugs is at the very least...deceptive.

You think the gangsta-rapper and ghetto hos, are going to give this "artist" a second listen?

I suppose you could record a long compilation of car crashes, breaking glass and screaming, string it all together in an audio stream and call it music, or art...but it isn't.

Neither is rap. Other than the writing of the lyrics, minimal talent is used.

Bob Dylan was rapping

“Subterranean Homesick Blues”

Johny’s in the basement
Mixing up the medicine
I’m on the pavement
Thinking about the government
The man in the trench coat
Badge out, laid off
Says he’s got a bad cough
Wants to get it paid off
Look out kid
It’s somethin’ you did
God knows when
But you’re doin’ it again
You better duck down the alley way
Lookin’ for a new friend
The man in the coon-skip cap
In the big pen
Wants eleven dollar bills
You only got ten.

Maggie comes fleet foot
Face full of black soot
Talkin’ that the heat put
Plants in the bed but
The phone’s tapped anyway
Maggie says that many say
They must bust in early May
Orders from the DA
Look out kid
Don’t matter what you did
Walk on your tip toes
Don’t try, ‘No Doz’
Better stay away from those
That carry around a fire hose
Keep a clean nose
Watch the plain clothes
You don’t need a weather man
To know which way the wind blows.

Get sick, get well
Hang around an ink well
Ring bell, hard to tell
If anything is goin’ to sell
Try hard, get barred
Get back, write Braille
Get jailed, jump bail Join the army, if you failed
Look out kid
You’re gonna get hit
But losers, cheaters
Six-time users
Hang around the theaters
Girl by the whirlpool
Lookin’ for a new fool
Don’t follow leaders
Watch the parkin’ meters.

Ah get born, keep warm
Short pants, romance, learn to dance
Get dressed, get blessed
Try to be a success
Please her, please him, buy gifts
Don’t steal, don’t lift
Twenty years of schoolin’
And they put you on the day shift
Look out kid
They keep it all hid
Better jump down a manhole
Light yourself a candle
Don’t wear sandals
Try to avoid the scandals
Don’t wanna be a bum
You better chew gum
The pump don’t work
‘Cause the vandals took the handles.

Hank Snow was a rapping too

I was totin’ my pack along the dusty Winnemucca road
When along came a semi with a high and canvas covered load
“If you’re going to Winnemucca, Mack, with me you can ride”
So I climbed into the cab and then I settled down inside

He asked me if I’d seen a road with so much dust and sand
And I said, “Listen, bud I’ve traveled every road in this here land”

I’ve been everywhere, man
I’ve been everywhere, man
Across the deserts bare, man
I’ve breathed the mountain air, man
Of travel I’ve had my share, man
I’ve been everywhere

Been to Reno, Chicago, Fargo, Minnesota, Buffalo, Toronto, Winslow
Sarasota, Wichita, Tulsa, Ottawa, Oklahoma, Tampa, Panama
Mattawa, La Paloma, Bangor, Baltimore, Salvador, Amarillo, Tocopilla
Barranquilla, and Padilla, I’m a killer

I’ve been everywhere, man
I’ve been everywhere, man
Across the deserts bare, man
I’ve breathed the mountain air, man
Of travel I’ve had my share, man
I’ve been everywhere

Boston, Charleston, Dayton, Louisiana, Washington
Houston, Kingston, Texarkana, Monterey, Ferriday
Santa Fe, Tallapoosa, Glen Rock, Black rock, Little Rock
Oskaloosa, Tennessee, Hennessey, Chicopee Spirit Lake
Grand Lake, Devil’s Lake, Crater Lake, for pete’s sake

I’ve been everywhere, man
I’ve been everywhere, man
Across the deserts bare, man
I’ve breathed the mountain air, man
Of travel I’ve had my share, man
I’ve been everywhere

Louisville, Nashville, Knoxville, Ombabika, Shefferville
Jacksonville, Waterville, Costa Rica, Pittsfield, Springfield,Bakersfield
Shreveport, Hackensack, Cadillac, Fond Du Lac, Davenport, Idaho
Jellicoe, Argentina, Diamontina, Pasadena, Catalina, see what I mean’a

I’ve been everywhere, man

Of travel I’ve had my share, man
I know some place you haven’t been
I’ve been everywhere

"He is a Christian rapper."
Oxymoron. That's like saying he's a Christian Nazi.


Your circular "reasoning" really is bigotry by stereotyping.

Example:
A. I had a teacher who always wore green.
B. I hated her because she was mean.
C. My sister likes to wear green.
D. Therefore I am justified in hating my sister, because all females who wear green are mean."

I loathe the rap form. But I like this guy's use of it to reach people who might otherwise not hear this message. John Wesley, the founder of the Methodist church movement, did the same thing in the 1700s by resetting drinking songs with Christian lyrics and going into the taverns to reach people who were shut out by the snobbish Anglican church — and some of those songs are still sung 200+ years later.

Try not to be a hater in order to hate haters.

Dylan has a gift, but all Dylan’s songs were markedly better when someone else performed them.
