The religious right hasn’t had a good album burning in years – I wonder if CDs burn as well as vinyl? We may soon find out now that Miley Cyrus – better known as Hannah Montana – has come out in a Twitter conversation with Perez Hilton in favor of same-gender marriage!
Miley: I believe that EVERYONE deserves to be happy. That’s all I’m saying 😉
Perez: A lot of controversy over your answer, which is silly. I think you answered the question better than Miss California!
Miley: What was her answer??? Cause what I said is the truth. Everyone deserves to love and be loved and most importantly smile 🙂
Miley: thx! U know what I get crap for whatever I do but you asked me an honest question and I gave an honest answer! So whatevs!!! 🙂
Perez: I’m sad that people use God and religion as an excuse 2 hate, discriminate and deny gays & lesbians full equality under the law.
Miley: ya thats lame! God’s greatest commandment is to love. And judging is not loving. That’s why Christians have such a bad rep.
Get ready for the religious right backlash. I’ll bring the marshmallows!
