    Who is this person? She looks like someone who`s gone to too many Lilith Fair concerts.

    She`s a one-hit wonder from the early 90s, as far as I can recall. Has all the talent and charm of a sunbaked mollusk.

    All posts below are correct!
    She was a whiney, preachy lesbian herd-left hippie freak who got far more airplay than her songs deserved.
    NOW she`s "Born Again" in the blood (as she puts it) yowza~! I didn`t think it was possible for her to be MORE ANNOYING than she was, but she found a way!

    Then factor in that her "core audience" is gay, and she was in San Francisco?
    The fail=epic!

    News Report About It It`s "Huff Post Live" so no, it`s not "right wing".

    Her website is a chuckle- specially the warning that Wikipedia is biased- so of course I looked her up there, they mention her psychiatric issues and her bi-sexuality.
    Wikipedia does mention that since the mid 90`s, she`s been vocal in her beliefs that homosexuality is a sin- so why all the surprise now is kinda `whaddayaxpect?`

    Ah the joy of freedom of speech.
    The moment someone says something you don`t like people exercise their freedom to shout "BURN HER".

    Hypocrites are hypocritical .

    She has for years cultivated a gay or at least maybe/probably/most likely gay vibe regarding her sexuality. I have to think this was either a terribly ill-delivered joke, or she`s suffering from a stroke or mental illness. Or, maybe, like others have suggested, she`s going with the ol` Kardashian words to live by, "No publicity is bad publicity!" Heck if I know...

    I think a majority of vocal religious bigots are bisexual like her. They think because they can ignore their gay side that that is how everyone is. Pretty closed minded about the vast ranges of sexuality out there. Probably explains a few of the vocal bigots on IAB though.

    "they cancel her shows because of her personal beliefs, now who`s the bigot?"

    Really? Playing the religious victim card? 10 out of 11 private venues don`t want her brand of hate in their establishments. That is their right. It will probably be 11 out of 11 as soon as the owner of Harmony Bar in Madison, WI returns on the 28th. They can not be forced to allow a bigot to play in their club the same as religious institutions are not going to be forced to marry gay people.

    So.... what did she actually say exactly because an opposing opinion to someone else is not necessarily bigotry or fear

    Here`s what she said @tsiemens:

    "So it`s not too late. You can jump into this Jesus gang anytime you want. But, um, I was in a prayer meeting yesterday, and you`ve gotta appreciate how scared, how scared folks on that side of the equation are. I mean, from their vantage point - and I really shouldn`t say `their,` because it`s mine, too - we are nearly at the end of time. And from our vantage point, we`re gonna be, uhhh, I think maybe Chinese water torture is gonna be the means, the method - once Prop 8 gets, uh, instated, and once, um, preachers are held at gunpoint and forced to marry the homosexuals, I`m pretty sure that that will be the signal for Jesus to come on back... You said you wanted reality.... If someone would be so gracious as to please tweet out, `Michelle Shocked just said from stage, God hates faggots.` Would you do it now?"

    I listened to the actual recording. And there is no way her "I`m damn sorry" was sincere...I mean if that is what she believes then she could at least own it and don`t go OAUHEKA I`m so SORRY! T_T` when all her shows are cancelled. It seems she only apologized because of that. Which makes me feel like she has no integrity at all and is completely flaky. Now, if she is a troll...then I guess congrats because she definitely trolled a lot of people. But if she is a troll...still, don`t apologize for something you did on purpose once it ends up ruining your U.S. tour.

    Thanks @markust! I was wondering what she`d actually said. Many reports talked about her asking the audience to tweet that she`d said "God hates faggots" but I wondered if there was some sort of context?
    NOPE!
    She`s nutz. Looney-toons! Missing a few cards...

    You can shove your "Liberals are so tolerant" up your ass, troll. To some people, being told that god hates you would be the worst possible thing. This is absolute hate speech against the gay community. Worse, talk like this puts our gay youth at further risk of suicide, but it also empowers the evil in our world with the permission to beat or kill gay people because who cares, God hates them.
