Fox News Contributor Todd Starnes Has Twitter Meltdown Over Grammy Weddings

Todd Starnes Twitter freakout

For those who were watching last night, the 34 gay weddings officiated by Queen Latifah at the Grammys was a groundbreaking event.

StarnesHaters will hate, as they often do, but Fox News religion "reporter" Todd Starns - who accused Duck Dynasty protesters of being "anti-straight" - just about blew a gasket and proceeded to have a very public freak-out on Twitter. In addition to sounding like grandpa on the porch complaining about this "rock and/or roll" noise and throwing a fair amount of slut-shaming:

He proceeded to completely lose it when the gay weddings came on: 

When a man whose views are so vile that even other Christian bloggers call him out for being a liar, one really can't help but indulge in some schadenfreude.

  1. I agree with Todd Starnes about female Grammy performers dressing like floozies. I don't see the male Grammy performers dressing in revealing clothes so I don't see why the women should be allowed to get away with it. It's sexist and demeaning to women in an overall sense. I loathe it when gay men support this sort of sexism.

    I also agree that the Grammys were used for political reasons. The best representation that the gay community can get is to actually have openly gay male singers winning Grammy awards. You won't see it because the music industry won't allow it. The Grammys won't allow it.

  2. I've seen lots of comments about how people "thought the Grammys was a family show". It IS. Only now it's for ALL families!

  3. Julie,

    I think the "family show" comment was meant to be critical of female performers who dress like skanky hos. I totally agree with the criticism. I don't see male performers dressing in clothing that reveals their behinds etc. I don't see why the female performers should be allowed to get away with it. I don't tolerate double standards.

  4. Sam, No, the comments I've seen and were referring to were about the same-sex marriage aspect of the show and Macklemore's performance of Same Love, etc.

  5. Yet another fundie who is fixated with gay sex. It's about time to hire a private eye and find out how deep this guy's closet is.

  6. Are there any other reactions (positive or negative) from conservatives/Republicans?

  7. American Family Association's notoriously anti-gay Bryan Fischer is also have a canary.

  8. I think the gay marriages were a gimmick but I don't think they were anti-family. Far from it.

    However, I can only repeat what I said before : the best way for gay people, particularly gay men, to make their presence felt at an awards show dedicated to music is to actually win music awards.

    When male performers can be openly gay and have hits on the charts for which they win Grammys - a concept that is very rare in America - only then can we say that we've progressed.

    P.S. I find it strange that gay people were applauding the Grammys organizers for allowing the gay marriages when you consider how much these same Grammys organisers have enabled homophobia over the years. Just look at how many awards they've given to homophobic rappers.

  9. I wish I could cry for the whole world to witness whenever the world doesn't conform to my idea of what it should be.

  10. These antigay people sure have a fixation about teh gay being "crammed down their throats."

  11. Does this blowhard's TV have an On/Off button on the remote? He could've used it at any moment. I use mine quite regularly when anything but THE SIMPSONS is tuned to FOX's channel.
    Oh, and, what credentials does one need to be a "religion reporter?" Isn't that a rather oxymoronic job?

  12. It is a common tack of conservatives to start with a reasonable (or arguably reasonable) middle-ground criticism and then manage to do a connecting slide into a "basket to hell" conclusion. Can be effective on unsuspecting, ambivalent, middle-of-the-roaders.

  13. "Cramming it down our throats"? 1.) you always have the option to turn off your teevee. 2.) lol

  15. Despite the wailing and gnashing of teeth from the NALTs, this is just hum drum christianity. If you don't all go out of your way to accomodate us, we're being oppressed.

  16. Hahahahahaha. Get over yourselves homophobic 'Christians' - you don't own marriage.

  17. First of all they weren't "gay marriages". There were all types of marriage, if we apply the antiquated standard that they still have categories. His version of God isn't of public concern, that's between him and his fiction within the greater Christian community.

    As far as anyone "mocking" the imaginary Christians he has dreamed up, they were also included in the service and he is doing his brothers and sisters an awful disservice to mock and their ceremony and religion.

    The God of truth shall prevail even with attempts to marginalize him in favor of the God of fiction used as a dividing point.

    Vampire Weekend won the Grammy for Best Alternative Album.

  19. What's up with the frying pan in his Twitter pic? Is that what his father used to beat him and his mother with?

  20. agree with first 2 tweets, i think most people probably agree to that extent at least.

  21. I find amazing how delusional this type of christians are.

    Your marriage is not about you and your husband is about them and mocking their religion.
    Sorry guys, but you are not that important

  22. Sorry, Im not for telling women how they should dress or calling them names. Floozy? Really?

  23. Conservative Christians have been roaring against "devil music" (read: black music) since the mid 1950's and this is no different. The fact that teens buy music their parents don't like makes the industry a very easy target for conservatives, and of course they know all about this but figure it's easy publicity.

  24. Which women were dressed like 'floozys' exactly? You mean Beyonce? Does he not get music?

  25. Um...

    Note to anti-gay Christians: This is NOT all about you.

    Seriously.
