What she said is wonderful. Yet another reason I’m glad that my sister picked her as a role model.
For those who are unfamiliar with her, here’s a Miley Cyrus song:
“you can tell we are Christian by our love…”
Hate mail from ‘christians’ – who’d have believed it, eh? I hope their protests had the opposite effect from the one they hoped and just made Miley more determined to stand up for gay people and less accepting of that peculiar fundie brand of bigotry they have the cheek to call Christianity.
Out of the mouths of babes, a 17 year old! To think Gordon Brown or David Cameron and their parties can’t even say what Miley said, let alone support the freedom to legally marry the one we love, and yet gays keep on on voting for people who aren’t interested in full equality for an entire group of taxpayers and voters. Neither will get mine ever again.
What else would you expect from Backward people!
A Christian…acting like a Christian? What a concept. She’s earned a lot of respect from me. One of the few child stars that actually has her head on straight.
You have new found respect from me. This was the first Christian thing I’ve heard any Christian say! 95% are just bigots for sure.
Pity you had to delete your Twitter account because of the negative feedback, but then again what did you expect? The first four characters spell it out: TWITter. Ignore them.
Thankyou for taking a stand and saying what you believe. Everyone has the right to be happy.
You go, girl.
I am very pleased that Miley Cyrus has said this – good for her.
There are lots of non-homophobic Christians. The Unitarians (not all of whom identify as Christians; we include Humanists, mystics, Pagans, Buddhists etc) have been LGBT-inclusive and affirming since 1977. The Quakers have been inclusive of LGBT people and gave had blessings of same-sex relationships for ages. The Metropolitan Community Church is run by & for LGBT Christians. And there are many LGBT-affirming groups within other denominations. I am not a Christian, but let’s get the facts correct before we dismiss all Christians as homophobes.
NOBODY does hate mail like “Christians” because nobody does HATE like “Christians”.
Christians, leaders in hate and hypocrisy since 32 AD.
You hear that people? That’s the droning “hisss” of religion expelling and hating their own kind for being anything progressive. Christianity is the biggest running joke on this planet for this very reason because they are harming all the nicer Christians who arnt out there hate mailing, gay hunting and science killing. I gotta just dub current Christian standards “the asshole country club” because apparently you cant be a christian and be live a life without trying to harm others. so sais-ith the rednecks.
Here you have someone who is more progressive and says something which ironically is pretty true to the bible about not judging others and that in the end its their god who is the decider, and what happens? well all the hicks come out and go “she’s a thang of the devil! us chrispies hold the right to judge and attack whom ever we please, get this heather out of our sight!”
A golf-clap to the Christians for making sure that that 5-15% of true good Christians get burned at the stake and exiled for not being asshats, you get and A+.. “A” for asshats and “+” for going all the way to be one!
Miley Cyrus you are a star and will shine on for ever in our eyes you may be young but you have more wisdom than people twice your age .dont let the Christians put you down
“Love thy neighbour as thyself. There is no command greater than these.”
Your Bible will say this. Please take a look- Miley obviously did.
