Christian rapper Bizzle recently responded to Macklemore’s hit song “Same Love.” RapRehab received the following statement and “Same Love Response” from Bizzle. Listen closely to the lyrics; we’re curious to hear your comments.

Bizzle:

For a while now, the acceptance of homosexuality as the norm, has been pushed in the media. Recently on The GRAMMY’S, numerous same sex couples were married on stage as Macklemore’s “Same Love” song played as the anthem.

A song that also refers to The Bible as outdated. The media has used manipulation as a means to make ANYONE who disagrees with homosexuality seem “Intolerant” and “full of Hate”. Meanwhile the reactions from the LGBT community and its supporters often prove very intolerant of those with opposing opinions.

    Yes. We GBLTQ people don’t tolerate homophobia. We also don’t tolerate slavery, misogyny, spousal abuse or child prostitution. We’re just wacky old liberals like that.

    The truth is, that everyone does have the right to live as they please, but as a Christian rapper, I also thought that saying the bible is outdated – is misleading. The bible is the word of God, and therefore has no time limit. :) I don’t tolerate hatred of anyone in the LGBT community, if Jesus were on earth today, He wouldn’t tolerate it either. But that doesn’t mean we all agree on the lifestyle.

    I think that this is yet another fine example of someone in the privileged dominating group (Christians in America) claiming that it is somehow oppressive to them to allow other groups to share in the power and privilege — even though there is little or no actual expense of that sharing to the dominant group other than allowing other people to think/act/be different from them. He tries to make a standard and unimpressive fundamentalist conservative biblical argument against gay “behavior” and “sin” but can’t resist throwing in the “gays are oppressing the Christians by wanting to get married” argument. He wants to say that inclusive folks exclude the opinion of people who disagree with them and label it “hate” — even though he is using the same arguments that were used against African Americans 70 years ago — which even most conservative Christians would now consider hate and racism. He lords his racial minority status as his point of authority to marginalize other groups that he doesn’t feel befitting of being recognized as marginalized.

    “They hung us like tree ornaments, where were you at?”
    …umm… gays were being gassed next to the jews in Dachau… that’s where they were at, asshat.

    There are few places outside the church in America today where people can openly make arguments that intentionally marginalize other people groups and still get away with calling it “just an opinion which I am entitled to.” Sure Bizzle, you and all your friends go on having your “opinion” and you can say that my dislike of that opinion is bigotry, but you forget that bigotry isn’t just an intolerance of opinion, rather it requires that the opinion be rooted in fear, distrust, and prejudice… which is the definition of what right wing Christianity is hawking these days in the death throes of homophobia.

    I think that the song was dope… I also appreciate how he cleared up any lingering issues that people in opposition would try to use as ammunition.

    Simply put – Brilliant… I agree with the message, but not Jesus relieved our sins part. If that were the case free will would not exist.That was a control method, used as anglo slander, and justification to wrong others and yet be able to sleep at night/maintain power in the name of religion. Until that part “Excellent”!
