  • A Lot Of People Are Angry Thinking The Super Bowl Halftime Show Was 'Promoting Homosexuality'

    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?"

      OK, according to you it seems this show promotes homosexuality, so tell me , are you gay now?

    • commented 2016-02-10 10:53:13 -0500
      LOL at this post and the comments suggesting the halftime show didn’t promote/support homosexuality. I guess you forgot to inform all the homos, their supporters and “pride” orgs that are claiming the halftime show as a win. The complaint that viewers associate colors that appear to have been ripped from a pride flag—with the gay pride/rights movement? Well that’s just rich.
      Can’t have it both ways, bitches.

    • commented 2016-02-09 11:27:26 -0500
      oh for fuck’s sake. the network they are on also sport “pride colors” as part of their logo. homophobes go right to the “gay” colors.

    • commented 2016-02-09 10:18:15 -0500
      This is the exact kind of idiocy I’m concerned about. Now, colors are gay and if you use colors or rainbows it automatically means homosexuality. Don’t even get me started on the ignorant fear of homosexuality in the first place.

      OMG !!! Lets focus on the fact that Beyonsa “how ever you spell her name” came out in a" Black Panther" " not representing" The Panthers team mind you and needed a police escort for her protection because she knew her out fit and song would cause back lash ….. All the cops including her own color turned their backs on her …. So I rather "Believe in Love " then a raciest bitch !!!!

      The straights that are bitching about the half time show really need to FOCUS (Fuck Off Cause Ur Stupid). You’re killing me Smalls!!!

      I love how they all complain about homosexuality yet for the last 33 year I have been force to see them promoting heterosexuality. It’s overly offensive. Talk about being disgusting.

    • commented 2016-02-08 22:21:46 -0500
      I am a gay man. I have been “out” for the past 30 years. I’m also a very successful professional musician. This year I watched the Halftime Show and never once thought I was watching anything other than a halftime concert. So many of you people are crazy in your opinions. Nobody was promoting homosexuality. Nobody was doing anything but trying to put on the best damn show they could. Nobody was thinking about YOU! So why don’t you stop thinking so fucking much about NOTHING! And for the record, I thought the halftime show was mediocre at best. So to all the anti homo people out there. Get a damn life!

      Can I see anything without pushing #blacklivesmatter ?

    • commented 2016-02-08 17:15:02 -0500
      People are choosing to be trolls at this point. I wish these people would reach for stars instead of utter foolishness.

    • commented 2016-02-08 17:10:26 -0500
      That’s the dumbest thing I’ve heard since the last time I heard Trump talk.

      Love does no harm to a neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.

      These homophobic Republican “christian” morons are fucking hilarious. I swear, I laugh harder by the day at their dumbass comments. Keep it up…you entertain me….thorougly…

    • commented 2016-02-08 15:43:04 -0500
      “Believe in Love.” There you go. Want to fire up an anti-everything homophobe Christian? " All You Need Is Love." [pun intended]

    • commented 2016-02-08 14:27:14 -0500
      Right. Bring back the totally not gay halftime shows of the 80s – Up With People, Disney’s musical extravaganzas. Solid hetero entertainment there.

    • commented 2016-02-08 13:44:31 -0500
      Mkay so….football….a bunch of beef cakes in pants so tight u can tell their religion chasing each other around a cow pasture because of an oblong ball…when they want to take that ball they tackle each other and lay in a big happy pile of men on the field….the straightest man on the field is that male cheerleader being base…he would rather hang with hot girls that play grab ass with a bunch of guys

    • commented 2016-02-08 13:03:13 -0500
      If anything it was promoting the hippie movement, that is the message I got from it. The entire thing was of a message pertaining to love and beauty, apparently those that complain are full of fear.

    • commented 2016-02-08 12:40:28 -0500
      You’re all SO dramatic!!!! The show was not promoting homosexuality! Seriously get over it.

    • commented 2016-02-08 12:16:39 -0500
      The halftime show needed a proper homo to clean up that choreography and design. It was a chaotic mess! (This post is coming from a homo, though I didn’t get either the choreography or design genes.)

    • commented 2016-02-08 12:07:33 -0500
      The amount of ignorant hateful tweets is truly heartbreaking. Love is love people.

    • commented 2016-02-08 11:49:41 -0500
      The rainbow colors represent’s ‘Love’ and ‘Peace’. The rainbow colors are not just used for Gay Pride. These people have a serious phobia issue and need to receive some counselling or they’re just F***ing stupid.

    • commented 2016-02-08 11:48:03 -0500
      Most hilarious quote among them:
      “Super bowl 50 halftime show is emitting homosexual tendencies”

      “Emitting homosexual tendencies…”
      Gotta remember this one.

    • commented 2016-02-08 11:33:02 -0500
      Seriously, are the these people afraid they might catch GAY! I totally loved all of the rainbow colors and the huge LOVE spelled out in the crowd. So many people are too blinded by judgement and hate to see the beauty in this world. I hope they keep themselves miserable and hate living…because they got what they deserve!

    • commented 2016-02-08 11:13:09 -0500
      I think it’s f**king hilarious. These are the same people that bemoaned the “Homosexual Hijacking” of the rainbow colors, and the first time that they’re displayed without any homosexual concept to them at all, THEY are the ones to make the connection. They only have themselves to blame and it’s funny as hell.

    • commented 2016-02-08 11:11:59 -0500
      I guess a dozen is a lot now a days.

    • commented 2016-02-08 11:05:51 -0500
      What a lot of morons. Cannot believe they state something like full of happy music and colour is gay.

    • commented 2016-02-08 11:03:52 -0500
      It’s clear that anytime a rainbow appears in the sky after a storm, God is promoting homosexuality……..

    • commented 2016-02-08 09:49:36 -0500
      Funny the most Testosterone filled event in US sport people offended by a colorful show with the theme BELIEVE IN LOVE. United States Land of the Free and home of the OFFENDED. God Bless America!

    • commented 2016-02-08 09:29:15 -0500
      Right – I guess that whole crowd went in straight and came out gay.

    • commented 2016-02-08 09:04:45 -0500
      So, this display of color is seen as prompting gay pride, and the tweeters don’t like it. They want their promotion of heterosexual eye candy back, with its rampant sexism, and girls frequently dressed far too scantily for the weather just to titular the prepubescents in the audience.
