Conservative Christians who hadn’t heard of Macklemore‘s pro-gay hit “Same Love” have certainly heard of it now. The massive wedding that took place live at the Grammys last weekend, which included same-sex couples and was officiated by Queen Latifah, has right-wingers furious over the destruction of marriage, morals, purity, and everything else they get upset about as soon as LGBT folks enter the picture.
But few seem to be more upset than Bizzle, a Christian rapper who has previously targeted the music of Jay-Z, Kanye West and Nicki Minaj, among others, for the messages their music sends. This “Same Love” nonsense really has Bizzle in a tizzy — so much so that he released a rap song explaining why LGBT people actually have it all wrong.
In “Same Love (A Response),” Bizzle offers his opinions on the LGBT rights movement and the presence (or absence) of God in the ongoing debate, all while the iconic instrumental of the original song plays underneath. If we could only ignore how we feel and give our lives to God, he seems to say, everything would be fine.
