Lady Gaga sang the national anthem at Pier 26 to kick off New York City’s gay pride celebration Friday night, changing some of its words to fit the occasion, The Blaze first reported.

Holding a rainbow flag, the performer sang, “O say does that star-spangled flag of pride yet wave,” then substituted “land of the free, and the home for the gay.”

 

On Wednesday, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down a federal provision that denied benefits to legally married same-sex couples and, in a separate case, cleared the way for California to resume offering marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

 

Lady Gaga posted a photo of herself in a wedding gown to her Twitter account Wednesday.

“We stand tall today.#DomaStruckDown So many fought for so long. Be proud, the prejudice are now the minority,” the singer tweeted.

I've noticed more and more people, celebrities especially, taking on gay/bi lifestyles and then saying those who disagree are the haters. It reminds me of this scripture :

 

(Isaiah 5:20) Woe to those who are saying that good is bad and bad is good, those who are putting darkness for light and light for darkness, those who are putting bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!

Odd, it doesn't feel as if prejudice is lessening - just changing. Now, those who feel marriage should be between a man and a woman (as the Bible prescribes) are being prejudged as bigots. So the table just turned - not lessened.

 

This is exactly how I see it also. In no way is prejudice lessening, it's reversing. Interesting also is that many of the churches are caving in and going along to get along. Will be interesting to see how it plays out with us.
