Mass Homosexual ‘Wedding’ Officiated Live During Grammy Awards Show

Macklemore Credit Drew of the Come Up ShowLOS ANGELES — A mass homosexual ‘wedding’ was officiated live during the 56th annual Grammy Awards show on Sunday.

The event featured both homosexual and heterosexual couples–34 in all–who exchanged vows on stage, which was decorated to resemble a wedding chapel and featured a large choir.

During the occasion, the popular rap/hip hop duo Macklemore & Ryan Lewis performed their hit song One Love, which celebrates homosexuality and criticizes those who interpret the Scriptures to define same-sex behavior as sin.

“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 on stage. “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.”

Queen Latifah officiated the ceremony, leading participants in the exchange of vows and wedding rings.

“Music has the power to bring people together at the Grammys,” she stated in her introduction to Macklemore. “This song is a love song not for some of us, but all of us! Strip away the fear; underneath it’s all the same love.”

Madonna followed Macklemore with a presentation of Open Your Heart to Me, as the crowd gave a standing ovation to those who were “wed” during the live ceremony.

The event was broadcast live nationwide via CBS, which announced in writing prior to the broadcast that the Grammys would feature an “on-air wedding.”

Neil Portnow, the president of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, which organizes the Grammys, acknowledged that there would be disagreement surrounding the ceremony.

“I expect that people with all kinds of opinions might voice them,” he told the New York Times, “And that’s healthy.”

And, as Portnow expected, some expressed disapproval of the live ceremony, calling it a “political stunt.”

“They can say this is not a stunt, but that’s exactly what it is—a piece of musical agitprop to mock the traditional values of conservative American Christians, Jews, Muslims, and others,” wrote commenter Tim Graham in a Newsbusters article. “Entertainers never want to have a debate, just a series of arrogant ‘statements’ with no opportunity for a conversation as they flush the Bible on national TV.”

Conservative commentator Todd Starnes agreed.

“Macklemore launche[d] a hate-filled, bigoted, ignorant diatribe against Christians,” he Tweeted on Sunday. “This was not about marriage. This was about bashing God and the Church.”

    It’s so sad that you, as “Christians”, are passing judgement on this when the only one that stands in a position to judge is God. Maybe you all should worry about yourselves instead of things that do not concern you. Below is a list of everything written in the bible about homosexuality and what a sin it is:

  • Bruce MacFarlane

    Very sad!
    And the world says we must tolerate this. God calls it an abomination.

    • John W

      What is being used is intimidation. If you don’t accept their lifestyle no matter what it is.. Than you are labeled as a bigot or hater an intimated to silence. If you look at countries that have had Homosexual marriage longer than the US has started to indulge into it. Any speech against the homosexual lifestyle, is considered hate speech and you will end up in jail for several stories here at CNN about that very subject.
      The point is this, it’s not about homosexuals being able to marry, that’s just the vehicle that is being used. The real goal is to place Christians in a place where they are silenced. To allow free reign of the Devil to lie to the masses. Which I can tell will not happen. Too many good people today standing for Jesus.

      • Mary Waterton

        Yeah, and I’ve noticed that 99% Christians are too spineless to object to the agenda. They would rather please the world than please God. In the 1st century AD, the cost of being Christian and upholding the standard was a horrible death at the hands of unbelievers. Today the worst that can happen to you is that they call you a name. Where has all the courage gone? How do you explain all this cowardice? Is it that 99% of American Christians don’t REALLY believe the Gospel? Is it that 99% of American Christians were never REALLY born again?

        • John Watson

          Very well said Mary absolutely and the verse that keeps running through my mind is this, if you deny me before men I will deny you before my Father.

    ..All q433r5 are vile pedophiles. Read the latter half of Romans 1 for just what kind of people they are inside.

      @ ….
      I have always read that section of Romans as talking about “US” more than talking about “THEM”….whoever “THEM” may be according to today’s wind of doctrine.

      Romans 1: (1599 Geneva Bible)
      28 [as]For as they regarded not to acknowledge God, even so God delivered them up unto a [at]reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient,
      29 Being full of all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness, full of envy, of murder, of debate, of deceit, taking all things in the evil part, whisperers,
      30 Backbiters, haters of God, doers of wrong, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, without understanding, [au]covenant breakers, without natural affection, such as can never be appeased, merciless.
      31 Which men, though they knew the [av]Law of God, how that they which commit such things are worthy of death, yet not only do the same, but also [aw]favor them that do them.

      Romans 2: (1599 Geneva Bible)
      1 Therefore [a]thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that condemnest: for in that thou condemnest another, thou condemnest thyself: for thou that condemnest, doest the same things.
      2 But we [b]know that the judgment of God is according to [c]truth, against them which commit such things.
      3 And thinkest thou this, O thou man, that condemnest them which do such things, and doest the same, that thou shalt escape the judgment of God?
      4 [d]Or despisest thou the riches of his bountifulness, and patience, and long sufferance, not knowing that the bountifulness of God leadeth thee to repentance?

      Romans 3: (1599 Geneva Bible)
      9 [m]What then? are we more excellent? No, in no wise: for we have already proved, that all, both Jews and Gentiles are [n]under sin,
      10 As it is written, There is none righteous no not one.
      11 There is none that understandeth: there is none that seeketh God.
      12 They have all gone out of the way: they have been made altogether unprofitable: there is none that doeth good, no not one.
      13 Their throat is an open sepulcher: they have used their tongues to deceit: the poison of asps is under their lips.
      14 Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness.
      15 Their feet are swift to shed blood.
      16 Destruction and calamity are in their ways:
      17 And the [o]way of peace they have not known.
      18 The fear of God is not before their eyes.
      19 [p]Now we know that whatsoever the [q]law saith, it saith it to them which are under the law, that [r]every mouth may be stopped, and all the world be [s]subject to the judgment of God.
      20 Therefore by the [t]works of the Law shall no [u]flesh be [v]justified in his [w]sight: for by the Law cometh the knowledge of sin.
      21 [x]But now is the righteousness of God made manifest without the Law, having witness of the Law, and of the Prophets,
      22 [y]To wit, the righteousness of God by the faith of [z]Jesus Christ, unto all, and upon all that believe.

    So the Grammies have been reduced to deviant garbage pits. Oh well, I watched the otherwise boring Pro Bowl instead.

  • HOLY WARRIOR FOR CHRIST

    They may have their mass values events, but all in all, they will face God’s judgment alone, one by one, not as a group or with their partners.
