Jay-Z

I Support Gay Marriage

Jay-Z says he STRONGLY believes gay people deserve the right to get married ... claiming discriminating against a gay person is the same as discriminating against a black person.

Jay -- arguably the most powerful person in hip hop -- discussed the issue with CNN ... saying President Obama's decision to come out in support of gay marriage was "the right thing to do."

“I’ve always thought it as something that was still holding the country back. What people do in their own homes is their business and you can choose to love whoever you love."

He continued, "That’s their business. It's no different than discriminating against blacks. It’s discrimination plain and simple.”

Jigga, Jigga, YEAH! Let's all jump into the Sea of Gamorrah head first and see which one burns first shall we? Punk ass people trying to get over with the young ones in hopes of staying in the spot light. Everyone knows it's wrong they just want to stay relevant. If you believe in this you cannot believe in the Bible. Sorry, cut the act n!ggers!!!!

"claiming discriminating against a gay person is the same as discriminating against a black person. "

IT IS NOT THE SAME THING. WHEN A BLACK PERSON CAN CHANGE THE COLOR OF THEIR SKIN THEN AND ONLY THEN WILL IT BE THE SAME. A GAY CAN PRETEND TO BE STRAIGHT,WHEREAS YOU CAN'T HIDE THE COLOR OF YOUR SKIN. SORRY,GAY-Z. TRY AGAIN. WHEN GAYS START GETTING HUNG FROM TREES ON A REGULAR FOR SIMPLY BEING GAY OR TAKEN TO WORK FOR MASSA BY FORCE FOR NO PAY THEN WE CAN TALK.

Apparently what the bible has to say about homosexuality is less relevant or important that Jay-z or Obama.

betty    

gays and blacks are different jayz.. black people are born black its natural. gays, its something that happens OUTSIDE the womb! being black is who black people are, whereas homosexuality is not who, but WHAT they does. its not natural, if it is society will not tag it as immoral. you dont need to be an evangelical christian to know that marriage is between a male and a female .

what kind of government will support a law that supports the damnation of its people??? so what will happen to the future kids of america... you just cant say approve gay marriage and let peole live the way they want.

jayz says those stuff cos hes illuminati and he does not believe in hell.
