A lot of people took to social media to complain the Super Bowl Halftime show was an attempt to advance the gay agenda, or something.
The old saying goes, "When you're a hammer, you think everything is a nail." And when you're anti-gay, apparently you think every thing with lots of colors is promoting homosexuality.
Sunday's Super Bowl 50 Halftime show closed with Beyoncé, Bruno Mars, Coldplay, and the entire stadium audience sending the message: "Believe in Love."
It was actually promoting Coldplay's new album:
But because the colors in the cards, as seen in this tweet Coldplay posted, might be considered "rainbow," the anti-gay crowd on Twitter went nuts.

Friendly Atheist's Hemant Mehta observes the anti-gay "complaints come from the same people who are watching a game in which dozens of men jump on top of each other for hours before dancing and patting each other on the butt."
Gay Star News' Joe Morgan adds, "if the NFL were planning on promoting gay rights, actually drafting an openly gay football player and keeping him on a team would probably be a good start. Right, Michael Sam?"
