Discrimination has always been an issue in this world. Previously, it was strictly about sexism and racism, and now its about anyone who is 'different'.If you aren't tattoo and piercing free, and straight, you get judged. Frankly, everyone gets judged, and to be perfectly honest -that's a load of bullshit. People should be judged on what's on the inside -who they are, not how they look or what body parts they have. Discrimination is advised when you're trying to decide who's a good person and who is not, but otherwise, its just plain wrong.
SKARLETT, an extremely devout Christian band that claims to be multiple genres, has proven their character some. This probably isn't all they are, because nobody is just one thing, but some recent posts on their Facebook page about homosexuality and preaching what God thinks is "Right", leads many to believe that they are the stereotype for all Christians. Which are judgmental assholes, that simply want to smack you over the head with the bible, in the hopes that it'll save you. With that, comes a hatred of homosexuality. Not all Christians are like this, of course, this is simply a stereotype.
SKARLETT -or at least one of the members- has stated that "if gays should be allowed to marry, pedophiles should be allowed to molest children." You can see the post itself below, and others on their Facebook page.
Why would anyone think its alright to say such a thing? Most fans of SKARLETT are turning into balls of fury over this, and many have said they just killed their music career by stating such crap. The band went on to attempt to explain themselves in a later post, and stated that they don't hate gays, but that they love everyone and are trying to help.
I call bullshit. If you love everyone, you'd see that two consenting people, regardless of gender, should be allowed to be together. Its not like pedophilia which is sick and wrong because a child cannot be consenting as they more than likely do not understand what is going on. They also went on to say, in a lengthy rant that "We're responsible for our own choices in this world." Or something along those lines.
Okay. So tell me, when did you decide to be straight? When will people get with it enough to realize that you don't choose what sexuality you are. You just come to realize it.
If you don't like "gay marriage" -don't get one! Period, point blank. End of discussion. It shouldn't even be called 'gay marriage' anyways, its not like their married life is any different from anyone else's. Its a matter of human happiness, nothing else. Build a bridge and get over it.
SKARLETT seems to have already lost quite a few friends and if they keep up their conversational slurs, they might end up with hardly any. Its one thing to state your feelings, and beliefs, but its another thing to bash a whole group of people, and make some of your fans feel like outcasts. This just isn't right.
Good job, SKARLETT, how does it feel that you just basically flushed your career down the toilet?
