    Ignorant homophobic Christian getting likes in youtube is nothing new as there’s a lot of trolls there, comparing to pedals is a sick evil idea yet scum like this cannot even see that

    1. He sounds like my Nan’s carpet sweeper, it’s a Bissel and it’s full of crummy fluff and crap too.

    2. Stephan 2 Feb, 5:48pm

      This closet-case is NOT a Christian.
      Read the Gospels, what JC actually taught, then, compare it to what these so-called fools say. You’ll find their rhetoric more closely parallels that of the Pharisees & Sadducees, the church cons of JC’s day who first plotted his assassination.
      JC loves you & stated that you were born gay, in Matthew 19:12.
      “Natural-born eunuchs”, used in thr King James version, was the phrase used in His day & culture for anyone who, naturally, had no desire for the opposite sex.

    3. When a christian speaks out and shares his opinion or belief on a particular matter that perturbs him, he is being judgmental and is forcing theocracy on others, when a non christian speaks out and shares his opinion, he is exercises his freedom of speech and is appraised as a hero and defender of human rights. You say we live in a secular society, but by definition, a secular society is a social order separate from religion, and exists without actively dismissing or criticizing religious belief. So if a person promotes secularism and yet they are the first to criticize another person expressing his beliefs, then I don’t know what the fudge you want!!!! RESPECT is all we should portray towards each other, not hate and bitterness.This should really stop.

    I’m sure this track will receive all the chart success it deserves, i.e. none. Homophobia does not sell well to the under-30s.

    I hope no-one confuses this idiot with the UK rapper Lethal Bizzle, who has stated his opposition to homophobia.

  3. Actually yes we have been burnt for entertainment where do you think the term faggot came from, when they used us as faggots and thrown onto the fires. Just another hater spewing hate and bile, clearly not a Christian value. Amoeba’s have more intelligence.

    1. Actually, that’s an urban myth, it’s not the origin of the usage faggot.

      1. Actually it is not an urban myth the term originated during the 13th century;

        Paul Halsall
        Fordham University 1988

        The Experience of Homosexuality in the Middle Ages

        John Boswell sometimes overstates his case,
        but he is on to something; churchmen become much more
        consistent after the mid-thirteenth century in their
        condemnation at the same time that in the secular
        sphere capital punishments begin to be handed out31.
        Various writers have drawn links between the treatment
        of Jews, lepers, heretics and homosexuals. Each group
        tended to be scarred with the stigma of the others.
        Physical persecution followed the increase in
        intolerance. The burnings began when the secular
        lawmakers took up the ecclesiastical themes33. Their
        motives were explicitly religious; fear of the divine
        vengeance meted out to Sodom was often given as a
        reason for the new laws

  4. Sinead Harkin 31 Jan, 7:27pm

    Never heard of you son,who are you?Get a life and let others live theirs,some people are gay,it doesn’t affect you so get over it

    1. Stephan 2 Feb, 5:44pm

      On the contrary, it does affect him, in that it makes him feel self-conscious about his own gay identity & desires.
      Turn on your radar, and you’ll see what his deal is.:)

  5. Colin (Queenstown/London) 31 Jan, 7:46pm

    There is No God. There is No sin. Get over it.
    Just BIZZLE is a BIGOT and using religion for his own ends. Sad

    1.

      1. Pavlos 7 Feb, 8:26am

        No, it’s ridiculous to expect people to have respect for other people’s religious views. If you really respected their religious views you’d share them too but mostly we find other people’s religious beliefs and views too ridiculous to respect.
        The best you can hope for is tolerance of other people’s strange beliefs but that relies on a reciprocal tolerance from both sides.
        When “religious” people quote their God at you in judgement they are not being tolerant but they are trying to outrank you or bully you, they’ve then lost the right to expect tolerance from you. Nobody should tolerate the intolerant.

  6. Craig NZ 31 Jan, 7:59pm

    Hey, are any gay or progay rappers out there willing to fight dire with fire and pen their own rebuttals to this talent-challenged tirade? And is it true that the fundamentalist “Christian” muzak industry consists of people who are just too bloody awful to get onto respectable, mainstream music labels?

    1. Stephan 2 Feb, 5:42pm

      Yes, it’s true.
      It’s also true that the most homophobic ones are also the gayest.
      Google Bishop Eddie Long, Juanita Bynum & Kevin Terry.

  7. May be words but all we hear is an arsehole farting, guess Mr Macklemore and Mr Lewis won’t be bothered by this fool on any red carpets anytime soon, maybe he can follow it up with a remake of ” It’s raining bigots”

  8. Your Christian God was created by white men Mr Felder, interesting how you bow and scrape at the altar of a conception dreamt up by those who were your ancestors’ masters and oppressors. Pathetic.

    1. Stephan 2 Feb, 5:41pm

      Jesus Christ was a Middle Eastern Jew, not a white man, nor was anyone else in the bible. How Europeans have since twisted the faith to their own purposes, as do all religions of all cultures, creeds & colors, is another matter, entirely.

      1. Pavlos 7 Feb, 8:34am

        Whatever Jesus Christ was he’s an American right now.

  9. This is nothing but a homophobic rant. Go onto youtube and report it as offensive and promoting hate. If they do not remove it then shame on youtube! And before anyone mentions freedom of speech (1st amendment) then that is rubbish. You can say what you want but that does not mean there will not be consensuses.

    1. You’re correct. Removal of a youTube video is not censorship. YouTube is a private forum. The 1st Amendment only guarantees freedom from government censorship in public forums.

    2. Stephan 2 Feb, 5:38pm

      Freedom of speech has to do with government censorship, not one’s fellow citizens bitch-slapping for being hateful.:)

    3. How is this hate he spoke what he thought and y’all are calling it hate if anyone is close minded it is yall

  10. twat

  11. What exactly is the difference between an abusive homophobic Christian fanatic and a paedophile?

  12. That There Other David 31 Jan, 9:33pm

    Seriously,who? I can’t be bothered even getting mildly annoyed by what he thinks.

  13. What a pathetic, sub human, moron – I lay good money he hasn’t even read this so called divine book of fiction!

    “Where knowledge ends, religion begins.” ~ Benjamin Disraeli

    1. Pavlos 1 Feb, 9:55am

      A very homely looking rapper who doesn’t swear, doesn’t go on about drugs or how much pussy he’s getting or would like to get and I guess he’s not a gangster, he doesn’t hang with the guys in the street but he seems to have picked up only the whining hate element of rap, hate rap is the lowest of them all and he’s not even a good rapper, massive fail.

  14. a rapper eh – so NO vocal skill and NO identifiable intelligence – good job he can fall back on blind faith.

    it is written – Man created God in his image: intolerant, sexist, homophobic and violent.

    1. Stephan 2 Feb, 5:35pm

      “God created man in His image.
      Man has more than reciprocated.”
      -Voltaire

  15. oh you big girls blouse never heard of you -Christian yeah right wheres you love care and compassion you bigot homophobe YouTube my god you are on your way to fame love if someone done the same as this guy but used the word black I wonder how this moron would feel

  16. So he classes all gays as pedos…. Wonder what he would of said if I classed all Christians of having a child fetish ….

  17. The patriarchy strikes again.

    1. You racist.

      1. A patriarchy is just a male-dominant society that defines rigid gender roles, and is against homosexuality and women. It’s not the least bit racist to accuse Bizzle of perpetuating this patriarchy. Race typically has nothing to do with patriarchies, except that the patriarchy in America is driven by white males.

  18. I don’t see anything hateful or phobic in the lyrics – just a negative, disapproving view of homosexuality.

    Most of the comments on this site verge on the hysterical. Get a grip.

  19. Hang on. Hasn’t it been exposed that there have been Christian priests in schools conducting sexual acts with pupils at their schools? I don’t here him singing about them in this ‘song’.

    1. Only Catholic priests, mostly. But many Protestants (like Bizzle) don’t consider Catholics to be Christians, anyway, so…

  20. This is exactly what he was after, to be seen. With the video being shared and more the people watching it giving him more views, thus thinking he achieved something. Any video on YouTube that has set out to cause hate or offence should never be allowed! We need to be teaching the future that being gay is ok and everyone is different, love them for it!

  21. “Christian [c]rapper Bizzle” (or should that be Pizzle?). Those three words alone were enough to extinguish any interest I have in this story.

  22. He’s ignorant to history saying it’s the new black, with it still being illegal in many countries to be gay, people have been killed because they were gay, prison, tortured. To compare someone who is gay to a pedophile is just astonishing, it’s like the mindset of some of Russia atm, the guy needs to get an education before dribbling his script. God loves us all, pritty sure he made gay animals as well don’t see how it’s unholy it’s natural, must be his clever trick for population control.

    1. And gays restore neighborhoods and old houses, they don’t destroy them.

      1. Pavlos 1 Feb, 9:40am

        OK, you sound a little like Baroness Knight, she who said gays were delightful and good with antiques but didn’t require marriage.

    2. Deadbeat 1 Feb, 5:47pm

      The ignorance Alex is you lack of knowledge of the homosexual lifestyle, Have you ever heard of “Man-Boy Love”. Look it up

      1. Stephan 2 Feb, 5:32pm

        Deadbeat, just come out, already.
        Life’s far better on the other side of the closet door.

  23. Pavlos 1 Feb, 1:10am

    Christian Crapper Bizzle,
    Dear God so awful, couldn’t listen to more than a few lines of drivel.

  24. WessexBear 1 Feb, 2:23am

    A child can’t give consent, so yeh a paedophile could & should be called ‘sick” but when two consenting adults, straight or gay have sex or get married, that is their business, not Bizzle’s. (What kind of dumbass name is that anyway?)

  25. The telling racist and homophobic line in his crap is …
    “You can play straight, we could never play white.”

  26. Watford 1 Feb, 11:16am

    All I want to do is laugh, this JOKER who thinks that by trying to spit some homophobic views and feelings will actually make a difference is a joke, it just shows that still people like him are so far back In the closet (let’s just say even further back than Narnia) actually has issues with his own sexuality. The only feeling I have for him is that of sadness. Good luck to you Bizzle maybe one day you’ll realise the truth

  27. Avalon 1 Feb, 4:53pm

    Only way he can get any publicity.

  28. David Hancock 1 Feb, 5:42pm

    The real irony is that he’s a former drug dealer and pimp – but, of course, his life choices are beyond reproach!!!!

    Legitimate question here, I wonder how many of these so-called Christians have ever actually read the Bible. If they were to actually read what is written, as opposed to what their “preachers”/”pastors” etc interpret it as meaning (i.e. paraphrasing) – I think they’d have a HUGE eye-opening revelation.

  29. Deadbeat 1 Feb, 5:44pm

    The title of the article is loaded and misleading. Bizzle is pro-Christian. He clearly is not “afraid” of homosexuals.

    1. He seems deeply afraid of society’s growing acceptance of gay people hence he actually asks in indignation why a gay person should consider themselves better than a paedophile.

    2. Few homophobes are afraid of homosexuals, they are afraid and have been made to feel ashamed of their own homosexual attractions and every time they see an out gay person it reminds them of what they are shamefully trying to conceal and divert attention away from …for whatever their reasons

  30. Mark Y 1 Feb, 6:13pm

    And his 15 seconds of fame are up. Not sure he’s going to win any grammys for that one. Sad bigoted loser. No love in his heart.

  31. How many actually listened to the whole song he clearly explained his opinion smh

  32. Stephan 2 Feb, 3:35am

    Bizzle should be a man & come out of the closet, already.
    It’s not like we can’t tell he’s gay.

  33. hetrophobe 2 Feb, 12:54pm

    He states in the track, no sin is greater than another, ie homosexuality is no worse than being lustful and heterosexual. The track is regarding the Gay marriage debate, which is becomming impossible to debate because as this page demonstrates if you have an opposing view its taken as “homophobic” exactly the same as the numbskull notion of opposing mass immigration makes you a racist.

    I’d suggest that some of you millitant homosexuals listen to the whole track and take the whole message (even if you dont agree which is your right) not just the bits you don’t like!

    OPPOSING YOUR VIEW DOESN’T MEAN I HATE YOU IT MEANS I DON’T AGREE WITH YOU!!! #freewill #nohate

    1. Pavlos 7 Feb, 8:55am

      “OPPOSING YOUR VIEW DOESN’T MEAN I HATE YOU IT MEANS I DON’T AGREE WITH YOU!!!”

      You can oppose my views till the cows come home but you don’t have the right to stop me from marrying because same sex marriage doesn’t comply with your religious beliefs or rules, your religious rules do not apply to me, it’s not my religion.

      What debate?

      You are free never to have a same sex marriage if you don’t agree with it, but preventing me from marrying my same sex partner is not acceptable, it’s nothing to do with you or the lame brains rapper .

      So it’s the political lobbying by fixed opinion, anti-gay “christian” homophobes that is unacceptable and uncivilised, they are trying to impose their religious belief upon me through legislation, this fathead rapper is not being tolerant but he is attempting to impose his religious and personal views and hoping to restrict my freedom whereas I have let him be until this point when self-defence is required, now who are you calling militant?

  34. What I don’t get is Same Love is a song with Christian root’s. ‘Same Love’ Mentions God and Macklemore’s faith a few time’s. This “rapper” seems to be attacking an Atheist ideology that is not present in the song. Hell, the song damn near mentions him going to church and believing in a God out right.

    This Arse wit sadly seems to be one of the “all people of faith have my back” when the God damned person hes attacking is a person of faith. It’s sad, even as an atheist myself Macklemore had such a more realistic and hopeful view of the New Testament teachings of Jesus, that being one of looking for the good in all things and Acceptance/forgiven.

    Still I must have read a different copy of the bible when Jesus went round shouting at gays. Since the only time i remember Him ever interacting/speaking on the subject of homosexuality was Matthew 19:10-12 when he healed a Centurions gay lover.

    But I fear I know more about the Bible/Jesus than this Cock end so What ever.

    1. David Hancock 2 Feb, 8:02pm

      Suggest reading John 11; Mark 14:51 and John 13:23; suggest you read the King James’ version as some of the material has been edited out of the newer versions (especially in the case of John 13:23). If you read it exactly as it’s written, with no preconceptions, it casts quite a different light on what the bigoted “Christians” teach.

  35. Holy Walter 2 Feb, 6:10pm

    Can someone quote me a scripture where the bible gives approval of homosexuality? IA free banana to the 1st person who does

  36. Crazy how all you people defend homosexuals we even see it in nature how its supposed to be male and female, its crazy how you people defend homosexuals with sword and shield.

    1. David Hancock 2 Feb, 7:54pm

      I think you miss the point that nature makes people (and other animals, there is evidence of it) homosexual. It is nature and being homophobic is going against nature.

    2. Appeal to nature is irrelevant. As a technological species we transcend nature.

      Nevertheless, homosexuality also occurs in the animal kingdom, showing that you understand humans or animals very little.

      1. Animal homosexuality you say.
        Please name one animal that is sexually attracted to the same sex whilst shunning the opposite sex?
        Did you know that some animals practice cannibalism and incest too, so I guess thoise things are fine too?.

  37. Support you 100% Bizzle

    1. The Same Love backing track he’s stolen is the only good thing about this lazy reactionary, misinformed piece of homophobic, racist hate crap, he’s not fooling anyone the “all gay people are white” spiel, many are black guys suspiciously like Bizzle in fact, I’d say he definitely has a past even if he has not much of a future

  38. I feel like Bizzle said what he wanted to say in a loving way and I respect his opinion.

  39. vanessacrepeau 3 Feb, 12:26pm

    just as Henry explained I am taken by surprise that a student able to profit $9357 in four weeks on the computer. did you read this webpage… TEC80.COM

  40. Once again showing what faith is truly like when it comes to homphobia. Let them sing out as many tracks as they like! The more twisted homophobic tracks the world see’s the quicker that world will realise we should banish religion from the mainstream of any modern democracy!

    1. Pavlos 7 Feb, 9:23am

      Well the cannibalism and incest are equally intrinsic to the heterosexual animals too, we aren’t concerned here whether it’s fine behaviour but whether it’s natural behaviour and clearly it happens in nature and it is natural.

      The point is that animals not only engage in heterosexual couplings but also in homosexual couplings, yes, they also sometimes kill and eat other animals and they sometimes mate with their own offspring , exactly like some people do.

      Sheep
      There are many animals that engage in same sex mating, it’s a fact that field studies have shown some domestic sheep to be exclusively gay for life in that they always seek out others of the same sex to mate with whether or not there are opposite sex sheep available to them who they will ignore.

      There is only one species of animal that exhibits homophobia, it’s not found anywhere else in nature.

  42. Stephen Frost 6 Feb, 1:46am

    “The song currently has over 30,000 views on YouTube”
    And you provided a link! I won’t be clicking on it. You’re just helping to spread it.

  43. This is great love this song stay strong bizzle there are close minded haters that won’t let you have your opinions and for those who say there is no God look outside and tell me how that happened. God Bless

      All beings want to live undisturbed in peace and happiness. Therefore, the concept of human rights is universal. It should apply to everyone who experiences pain or pleasure. This is why developing sincere concern for others gives us peace of mind; it brings with it trust and a sense of peace. Cultivating warm-heartedness contributes to our own well-being.

    I actually get so angry when I read stories like this. According to the bible, God loves everyone… EVERYONE. Regardless of colour, sexuality etc etc. Supposedly, we’re all God’s children and it angers me how people use religion to breed hate… I’m not religious, but I don’t call everyone that is sick and a paedophile… Keep throwing your opinions on people and see were it gets you…
