Miley Cyrus Says 'God Is Love;' Mocks Santorum's Gay Marriage Viewpoint – Christian Post

The former Disney star and tween sensation Miley Cyrus recently expressed her support for gay marriage and faulted family values candidate Rick Santorum and his alleged corporate supporters for affirming traditional marriage.

Cyrus, in an effort to attack retailer Urban Outfitters for allegedly copying jewelry designs, linked the company to Santorum and mocked the presidential contender’s statements opposing gay marriage in a Twitter message last week.

She alleged the company gave $13,000 to the presidential contender and mocked his stance with the quote, “‘IF WE ALLOW GAY MARRIAGE NEXT THING U KNOW PEOPLE WILL BE MARRYING GOLD FISH’ – Rick Santorum.”

Santorum, a former Pennsylvania U.S. senator, has long been a champion for the family and social conservatism. In his book, It Takes a Family: Conservatism and the Common Good, says marriage between a man and a woman is important to the rearing of children, not just companionship or sexual gratification.

“Every known society has some form of marriage. And it’s always about bringing together a male and a female into the kind of sexual union where the interests of children under the care of their own mother and father are protected,” he wrote. Like us on Facebook

To legalize gay marriage, Santorum says, means “society will teach the next generation that marriage is a self-centered endeavor primarily about adult satisfaction, not children’s well-being.”

Santorum’s position on marriage comes from his Catholic faith and aligns with Christian values. Cyrus professes she is a Christian but says she also supports gay marriage.

Christian photographer Tammy Hudson tweeted, “What happened to that Christian girl from [Tennessee] with decent moral values and a lot of heart?” in response Miley’s comments about Santorum.

Cyrus responded, “What an ignorant statement. I don’t have ‘a lot of heart’ cuz [sic] I’m not gonna [sic] be a closed minded hypocrite? LOVE IS LOVE. GOD IS LOVE.”

The former Hannah Montana singer made similar statements in the past equating an accepting stance to same-sex marriage to God’s command to love.

When former Miss California Carrie Prejean expressed her support for biblical marriage between a man and a woman in 2009, Cyrus tweeted to celebrity blogger and open homosexual Perez Hilton, “God’s greatest commandment is to love, and judging is not loving.”

She continued, “I am a Christian and I love you – gay or not. Because you are no different that [sic] anyone else! We are all God’s children! I am not saying this so would be nice on your site though that would be nice … but because the LORD has spoken ‘luv [sic] cuz [sic] God loves.’”

At that time, MTV reality star Heidi Montag followed up with a similar tweet: “God says in the Bible that we should love our neighbor and he created us all as equals. I know in my heart that gays and lesbians should have the same government rights that Spencer and I will when we get married.”

Randy Thomasson, president of pro-family advocacy group Save California, responded to the tweets, saying Cyrus, Montag and other misled Christians are displaying a kind of “cotton-candy truth disguised as ‘Christian.’”

The real truth, says Thomasson, is that while love is the greatest commandment, God commands those who love Him to obey His teachings. God and His son Jesus both teach that homosexuality is a sexual sin and marriage is between a man and a woman only, he maintains.

“Miley Cyrus and Heidi Montag are in stark conflict with Jesus Christ and the Bible,” Thomasson asserts.

Thomasson quotes Jesus in Matthew 19:4-6. The passage states, “Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no man separate.”

For this reason, he says, marriage belongs only between one man and one woman.

Santorum, who has launched his exploratory committee for the GOP bid for 2012 race, has not responded publicly to Cyrus’ remarks nor to the assertion that he received funds from Urban Outfitters.

Correction: Tuesday, May 31, 2011:

An article on Tuesday, May 31, 2011, about Miley Cyrus’ tweet supporting gay marriage and mocking a traditional marriage advocate, incorrectly identified a celebrity blogger and open homosexual as Paris Hilton. The blogger’s name is Perez Hilton.

Miley Cyrus is Undie-covered – The Sun

The Hannah Montana star proves she’s all grown up as she strips down to lacy red underwear and boxer shorts for the drama, So Undercover.

She plays a street-smart private investigator hired to infiltrate a college sorority and befriend the daughter of a mobster.

And the 18-year-old actress showed off her stunning figure in a pyjama party scene from the movie, which also stars JEREMY PIVEN.

Miley met KELLY OSBORNE on the set and the pair have become close pals.

And Kelly says that growing up in the music industry around famous fathers – OZZY OSBORNE and BILLY RAY CYRUS – has given them a similar outlook.

In an interview last month she said: “I didn’t know Miley well before. We had only met once or twice but as soon as we started shooting it was pretty instant how we got along so well.

“She just gets it. She has a really similar upbringing to me – though her side of things is on a completely different scale to mine.

“I’m from rock’n’roll music and hers is country… but she gets it.

“It’s nice to hang around an unaffected girl you can have fun with and understand what I go through and I understand what she goes through.”

Turning 18 signalled a change in the former child star’s behaviour.

She released a series of sexually charged music videos and was pictured partying with pals and smoking the legal substance Salvia in December.

In February, dad Billy Ray voiced fears over his daughter’s behaviour, saying: “I’m scared for her. She’s got a lot of people around her that’s putting her in a great deal of danger. I want to get her sheltered from the storm.”

But this year has seen her complete two movies – So Undercover and the DEMI MOORE comedy, LOL.

And, despite the partying, she’s looking good.

Geoffrey Dickens's picture

Pop star Miley Cyrus got on her high horse, via Twitter, to paint former Pennsylvania senator and current GOP presidential contender Rick Santorum as a bigot for his stance on same-sex marriage. As reported by the Politico, the singer/actress was so upset that Urban Outfitters had contributed to Santorum she took to Twitter, last Thursday, to preach to her fans that every time they made a purchase from the clothing retailer they were helping to “finance a campaign against gay equality.”


The former star of Disney’s hit kid show, Hannah Montana, who was already annoyed that the company had allegedly stolen jewelry designs, added the Santorum donation to her list of personal grievances against Urban Outfitters, as seen in the following May 26 tweet:

“IF WE ALLOW GAY MARRIAGE NEXT THING U KNOW PEOPLE WILL BE MARRYING GOLD FISH” – Rick Santorum UO contributed $13,000 to this mans campaign.”

Miley Cyrus “Gypsy Heart” Manila Concert on June 17

After two successful Best of Both Worlds and Wonder World tours, international pop star and Golden Globe nominee Miley Cyrus has been wowing thousands in her latest musical adventure titled Gypsy Heart Tour.

Since April 29, she has been busy performing for her fans in many countries in South and North America. Her successful concerts in Escuador, Peru, Chile, Argentina, Paraguay, Brazil, Venezuela, Colombia, Costa Rica, Panama and Mexico have just proven the popularity and staying power of the 18-year-old singer-songwriter. At least 200,000 fans’ dreams came true when they finally witnessed Miley Cyrus perform on stage.

The teen actress-pop singer gained fame for the hit TV series-turned-movie Hannah Montana. Her single “Party in the U.S.A.” peaked at No. 2 in the Billboard Hot 100 of the United States.

The teen star-artist herself has been tweeting about how moved she has been during the tour and how her fans have been amazing. Some of her messages read: “Honestly I can’t believe my first show is already over. Amazinnggg. This crowd was beyond incredible. I cried my eyes out. so touched. ILY,” “Wow Argentina :) I can’t thank you enough for tonight. You all truly radiate. Looovvveee you,” and “From bottom of my heart, THANK YOU BRAZIL. Shows like these are what inspire me to get going when the going gets tough.”

Earlier this month, British singer Paul McCartney compared the effect of Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber to the new generation of teenage fans. “I think when you have new sensations like Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber, adolescents who identify with it, the same way that children identified with The Beatles,” said the English artist.

Miley Cyrus is set to make history as she will be holding a concert party in the Philippines, her only stop in Asia. Her concert in Manila will take place on June 17, 2011 at the SM Mall of Asia Open Concert Grounds.

Miley Cyrus isn’t a fan of Urban Outfitters

Miley Cyrus may not be the first person we turn to for advice when it comes to weighty issues like current events and gay rights, but the singer has spent the past few days posting Tweets that are decidedly less OMG-y than usual.


Cyrus took aim at Urban Outfitters following reports that the company stole a necklace design from a jewelry artist in Chicago (which the Philadelphia-based fashion-and-accessories chain “unequivocally” denies), as well as Urban Outfitters president Richard Hayne’s contributions to right-wing Republican Sen. Rick Santorum and his Political Action Committee.


Cyrus Tweeted, “Love that everybody is hating on Urban Outfitters.” She added, “Not only do they steal from artists but every time you give them money you help finance a campaign against gay equality. #SHADYASHELL”


Hashtags aside, Cyrus also pointed out, “IF WE ALLOW GAY MARRIAGE NEXT THING U KNOW PEOPLE WILL BE MARRYING GOLD FISH” – Rick Santorum UO contributed $13,000 to this mans campaign”


The necklace in question is part of designer Stevie K’s United/World of Love line that includes necklace charms in the shape of states with a heart cut-out. Urban Outfitters is offering a very similar piece for less than half of the price.


What do you think of the controversy? Will you continue to shop at Urban Outfitters? Leave your comments below.

Miley Cyrus rips Rick Santorum – Hotair.com

Hey, I like “Party in the U.S.A.,” but I don’t think it’s particularly patriotic of Miley Cyrus to pop off about potential presidential candidates.

The teen pop sensation took to Twitter to ding Rick Santorum in a roundabout way Thursday.

Cyrus isn’t a fan of Urban Outfitters after stories emerged alleging that the store has copied jewelry designs, so she pointed out that the company’s president had contributed to Santorum.

“IF WE ALLOW GAY MARRIAGE NEXT THING U KNOW PEOPLE WILL BE MARRYING GOLD FISH’ – Rick Santorum UO [Urban Outfitters] contributed $13,000 to this mans campaign” tweeted Cyrus, mocking Santorum for some earlier remarks regarding gay marriage.

She also wrote about Urban Outfitters and Santorum: “Not only do they steal from artists but every time you give them money you help finance a campaign against gay equality.”

I doubt former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.) worries much about Cyrus’ effect on his potential campaign, even if she does have more than a million Twitter followers. For that matter, I doubt he worries that Keira Knightley recently said she had to google his name. (And he shouldn’t — I know firsthand several high school senior girls who don’t know who Joe Biden is. Not that that’s excusable.)

But I had to pipe up about this because, when I read her comments, I couldn’t help but think, “Right. And every time you give Miley Cyrus money you help finance a girl who clearly doesn’t understand the value of the world she’s been given.” She’s a Southern-bred gal who grew up with an essentially intact family. She should know better than to be less than gracious. And Santorum is a stand-up guy who has always been solidly in support of family values — who suddenly seems pretty cool to me.
