"everyone deserves to love and be loved and most importantly smile :)"
"i believe that EVERYONE deserves to be happy."
Hmm, actually those don't seem all that...oh wait, we found the problem.
"gods greatest commandment is to love. and judging is not loving. thats why christians have such a bad rep.Yes, our Miley has gotten herself in trouble with the right-wingers for coming out in support of equal rights for gay people via her twitter account. Her comments were in response to a question from Perez Hilton about gay marriage in the wake of the whole Miss California drama.
jesus loves you AND your partner and wants you to know how much he cares! thats like a daddy not loving his lil boy cuz hes gay and that is WRONG and very sad! like i said everyone deserves to be happy
i am a christian and i love you - gay or not. BECAUSE you are no different that anyone else! we are all gods children! i am not saying this so [you] would be nice [to me] on your site (though that would be nice jk;) but because the LORD has spoken "love cuz god loves"
Miley also said that she agreed with Heidi Montag's answer to Perez's question: "God says in the bible that we should love our neighbor and he created us all as equals. I know in my heart that gays and lesbians should have the same government rights that Spencer and I will when we get married. So, yes, this blonde Christian believes in gay marriage and I hope to one day go to YOUR wedding, Perez!!!" (If Heidi can figure this shit out...)
All of this love and tolerance and acceptance was too much for the group One Million Moms (which was created by our besties at the American Family Association), who sent out an email blast criticizing Ms. Cyrus. (Interestingly, the action alert has since been removed from their website, but it was picked up by a bunch of blogs before it disappeared, and a search of the google cache produces the page. )
Here's their action alert:
Miley Cyrus said what?
"Hannah Montana" star Miley Cyrus recently made statements supporting gay marriage.
Her comments were in response to a question posed to Miss California Carrie Prejean in the April 19 Miss USA Pageant. Homosexual celeblogger Perez Hilton was the pageant judge who asked Prejean her opinion of same-sex marriage, to which she responded that marriage should be between a man and a woman. Outraged by her response, Hilton began blasting the beauty queen and asked for celebrities to share their thoughts on gay marriage.
Miley Cyrus responded to Hilton through her Twitter.com account with the following comments:
Such statements will send the wrong message to our children who are influenced by this teenage megastar. Parents need to realize that Cyrus is not the positive role model she was once thought to be.
- "Everyone deserves to love and be loved and most importantly smile."
- "Jesus loves you and your partner and wants you to know how much he cares! That's like a daddy not loving his lil boy cuz he's gay and that is wrong and very sad!
- "Like I said everyone deserves to be happy."
- "God’s greatest commandment is to love. And judging is not loving."
- "I am a Christian and I love you - gay or not - because you are no different than anyone else! We are all God's children."
Send Miley Cyrus a letter stating that you do not approve of her comments.
Clearly she is confused and does not understand the Bible. Please pray for the Lord to open her eyes to the truth.
Shortly after this action alert went out, Miley posted this update on twitter: "love is the lords greatest commandment. i understand the bible just fine!!! :)" So we kinda love her now.
Let's see if we're clear on the right-winger party line on this one. Carrie Prejean is a lovely and brave young woman and a good Christian who is being attacked by horrible bloggers like Perez Hilton and the evil liberal media for speaking out in support of a definition of marriage that excludes people and denies them equal rights under the law. Miley Cyrus is a confused young woman and a horrible role model because she spoke out in favor of love, equality, acceptance, and compassion. Yeah, we're sure that Jesus would totally be with the Million Moms on this one. He was so into judging and excluding and marginalizing.
You know, when a 16 year old pop star can call you out on your hypocritical bullshit in 140 characters or less, you should probably rethink...well, everything.
