Beyoncé Takes a Stand for Marriage Equality

Beyoncé

With gay marriage in the spotlight, celebrities are showing their support on social media. Beyoncé has taken a stand for marriage equality by posting a handwritten note on her Instagram page.

“If you like it, you should be able to put a ring on it. #wewilluniteformarriageequality!” wrote the “Single Ladies” hitmaker, who also uploaded a photo of the red equal sign, a symbol of equality.

“it’s about time #equality #prop8 #marriageislove ❤❤ show your support!!” she told her followers.

The constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act, which legally defines marriage as a union between a man and a woman, is currently under Supreme Court scrutiny.

B isn’t the only one in the Carter household showing her support. Her husband Jay-Z previously spoke out in favor of gay marriage.

“I’ve always thought it as something that’s still holding the country back,” Jay told CNN last year. “What people do in their own homes is their business. You can choose to love whoever you love. It’s no different than discriminating against blacks. It’s discrimination plain and simple.”

    … this is like, people wanting to turn church buildings into night clubs.

    You cannot take what GOD DESIGNED for one thing and turn it into something else. Y’all are playing with fire. So you can legalize this NONSENSE, but just know that the country will immediately go downhill afterwards.

    This is NOT the same as civil rights.

YOU SOUND LIKE A FUCKING IDIOT. BITCHES LIKE YOU ARE THE REASON WHY THIS COUNTRY COULD POTENTIALLY GO DOWN HILL.
    You mean to tell me that gay marriage is the deciding factor of whether or not an entire country’s social and economic structure will maintain. YOU. SOUND. DUMB.

    @Brass_knucklez, eh.. not at all. As far as I know Spain legalized a lot of immoral things and now is downhill. Also, USA is getting really immoral and look how the things are going. Maybe gay marriage doesn’t decrease the economy but it definitely doesn’t help it.

    @PRINCE OF POP, Right. And guess what is the MAIN CONSTRIBUTOR to our country’s problems? … The broken FAMILY STRUCTURE.

    Our families are already broken. Single parent homes, divorced parents, etc. And now you want to add to the problem by allowing the confusion of having two dads or two moms to lead a household? So yes. The country will continue to go downhill because we have no respect for God’s design of the family, which is the foundation of the country.

    Your feelings are irrelevant.

    @Realistically, they already do … I’d say ur feelings are pretty ire;avant cause its nothing you can do but comment on rap up you opinion isnt gonna effect millions but hers would see….>>> check out all the comments… same sex couples already lead homes the only reason its forbidden is because you think thats what your god wants… but your God is the devil my friend the devil because this society has gotten your minds screwed to believe that a homosexual lifestyle is wrong the only reason they have a bad rep now is because it is modern day segregation plz… lie to your self all you want but you cant hide from the truth forever … damnnn

    @Realistically, Look at the research though. Like seriously, ALL OF YOU. Y’all thinking that gay marriage is further eroding the family structure? The research tells us TWO GAY PARENTS ARE BETTER THAN ONE STRAIGHT PARENT. Seriously, look it up.

    Dr. Archbishop Oprah Reply:

    @Realistically, you sound so ignrant.marriage is a concept that was created long before Christianity. Why are you hiding behind religion to deny two consenting adults (any sex) from getting married? you have to have absolutely no educational background to believe that this isn’t a civil rights issue. No one is taking away the fact that you believe in God because its your belief and your choice. How is this any different. That’s like me telling you, you are not allowed to like your fav good or tv show because its against my religion. one should now be able to dictate another’s personal morals and values, that’s the whole purpose of freedom.

    anonymous Reply:

    yeah just like god said it’s ok to kill a woman if she gets raped by a man, or it’s ok for you to kill your spouse if he or she cheats????

    you should read the bible because there is a lot of things that the bible says that “CHRISTIANLY” people don’t follow.

    God never intentionally said “Gods children should never be thiss… or that…” and the bible was written many years ago, so anyone could have messed with the bible during that time period.

    PRINCE OF POP Reply:

    @Dr. Archbishop Oprah, lol long before they mad up that filthy religion thank you hahaha… religion is like gang … how does it preach about unconditional love but then teaches its followers to hate people for their differences… crazy man crazy … its prejudice and segregated … the bible was desing to control population get out of that mind frame ppl yeah its your choice agreed…but the god only made earth and what about the billions of other planets and galaxies o wow… what about how only 144,000 are going with jesus to heaven lol… hmmmm jesus was a man who was enlightened and the only way the people of that time could describe him was to be the son of God.. screwed …. he was a God but not the only 1 … it says we are all the sons of God… then says in the same breathe Jesus is the only 1 … the only smart 1 who looked within hahaha… its pointless trying to get these ppl to be open minded i guess thats the whole point in the religion method…

    Dr. Archbishop Oprah Reply:

    @common, in opposed to you being a real Christian? Oh I forgot real Christians are judgemental bigots who bash others rather than love, like the God they serve. Real Christians go on blogs calling out fake Christians. Real Christians can put fake ones or non-believers in a heaven or hell because they set the standard. Real Christians like you are w/o sin and therefore can place judgment on others. Or is that just u? if your a real Christian you would know that the bible says in James 4 that There is only one lawgiver and judge, he who is able to save and to destroy. But who are you to judge your neighbor? And also in Romans its mentions that passing judgment on another you condemn yourself, because you, the judge, practice the very same things. And when it says practice the same thing it means sin, because to God sin is sin. So if u don’t sin fill free to keep typing #BibleShade on that windows 98 desktop but if u do, have several seats on the altar and on the front row of pews at the mega church you attend

    GOD is LOVE. Until people accept that simple fact and unite as one unit, we will always have a discriminate minority in this country. Its sad, because most religious followers are self-righteous,intolerant people who spew so much hate, judgement and distaste. When the GOD that they aspire to be like is one who is LOVING and UNDERSTANDING.

    thank you beyonce! a simple message for a very simple issue that people are making complicated. you love who you love period. alot of you are talking about God & his plan, that being gay is “a sin”, gay households are the demise of the family structure. For you bible thumpers, you want want to read or reread John 7 “he who without sin …”. you’re promoting hate, defamation, character assination in the name of “God”. where in the bible does it state that a home is a man, woman, 2.5 kids & a dog in a 3 bedroom home constitute a family or home? newsflash, the family structure has been messed up for awhile now w/ single parent homes & even 2 parent homes (man & woman) where they are not getting along. self righteous christians are THE most judgmental, unforgiving & deceitful people on this earth. judgment day will be very interesting w/ all you demigods running around. #judgenotlestyoubejudged

    Andy Reply:

    @KaramelKisses, I noticed that you indirectly stated that gay marriage “messed up” the family structure. Just because the family structure is already messed up you think we should let it be more messed up? Christians had tried to persuade people to educate correctly their children. FAIL. Then, with the messed up children of the past generations, they tell them to not have sex since they can get pregnant (one of the reasons). FAIL. Nobody listen to them like if they are completely ignorant people. You may not like what they (or God) say but you should know that what they said is what you should do, no matter if you don’t want to, is the correct thing. Besides, Christians (specially catholics) have made more than Beyoncé could make in her entire life, let’s not talk what YOU could dream to make (any help is still appreciated, whatever).

    I am a Christian and I believe that Gay marriage should not be held in a CHURCH.
    I’m not saying God “Hates” gay people, because he loves every one of his children, he just sees Gays and Lesbians as abominations and blasphemy. So why disrespect him and have gay people married in a Church, combined with HOLY matrimony.
    Don’t get me wrong, I have no problem with gay people at ALL. They can do/be what they want to do/be. It’s their lives and they can live it the way they want to!
    ALL I’m saying is, they should not be married at a church or in God’s name, because it’s like a slap in the face.

Gay people aren’t forcing anyone to marry them — they’re asking openminded members of clergy to perform the ceremony.
