Hmm, Lady Gaga Sings The Star-Spangled Banner at NYC Gay Pride Event … “Land of the Free, and the Home for the Gay”
SHAMEFUL … You know, I do not care what side of the gay marriage debate you are on, I do care that you show respect for the Star Spangled Banner.
Why does the following not surprise me at all? Lady Gaga sang “The Star-Spangled Banner” to kick off New York City’s gay pride celebration Friday night by changing the lyrics to pander to the folks in the crowd that were celebrating the Supreme Court’s two recent gay marriage rulings. The ever-controversial singer sang the following while clenching a “rainbow” gay flag, “Oh say does that star-spangled flag of pride yet wave” and then disrespectfully changed the lyrics to … “O’er the land of the free, and the home for the gay”.
And they wonder why some folks have an issue? You just can’t keep it classy. You claim you want equality, but you take every opportunity to conduct yourselves in an unconventional and provoking manner. You were not pledging your allegiance and proudly singing the anthem to the American flag, you were doing to to the gay flag. Sorry, but I do believe the definition of marriage is that between one man and one woman, as it has been for thousands of years. I think it should be a state’s right to chose. However, that being said, what ever your believe is, is your belief. But do not think that you can force others to believe what they do not. Marriage is more than the common benefits one gets because of being married, that is a perversion of marriage that government has inflicted upon us. No one should get any more or less benefits, entitlements, tax breaks, etc whether they are married or not. However, there is one thing that I do demand and that is that you respect the United States National Anthem and the Star Spangled Banner.
