Miley Cyrus has just spoke out about the new proposed law in Indiana. It is the Religious Freedom Law. Which is said to allow business owners to legally discriminate against the gay community. First of all I have to say this, are you kidding me? Why does it always seem when everyone as a whole (speaking of the U.S. only) is starting to be more open minded, the mental wall built by those who do not understand get in the way. I really never like to use this phrase, but do they not understand that this is supposed to be a 'free country'. That does not mean that those who can initiate bills should do so on their own prerogative.
This has happened many times throughout the years with marijuana, gay marriage, and freedom of speech just to name a few. When will this nonsense stop? What does it take to make these people realize that this is not an issue lawmakers should be wasting their time on? It is wildly hypocritical to support the discrimination of homosexuals for the purpose of religion. Religion. So, the followers of religion have priority over followers of a sexual preference? If you ask me, hardcore Christians (I mean the kind that feel it necessary to ban a homosexual from their work place) are far more of a danger to society than their... let's call it nemesis. They teach children it is perfectly OK to judge others to the extent of this ridiculousness, yet turn around and go to church and swear by a set of rules NOT to judge others. Come on people. Remember the first grade? The Golden Rule? Since you have misplaced this in your normal Sunday rituals, I will tell you here:Mathew 7:12“So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets."
Oh, and be sure not to forget that that quote is directly from your holiest of books, the Bible.
What Miley had said was rather short but to the point:
"I lived a life where I had to be something every day and had to be a character, and it wasn’t necessarily who I wanted to be. And now I’ve dedicated my life to being whoever it is that I want to be, and also constantly learning and evolving.
That’s what’s wrong with [supporters of the Indiana law]—they’re not choosing to live that way. And if you don’t choose to live that way, you’re not going to last in this generation because we are overtaking you. They are dinosaurs, and they are dying off. We are the new generation, and with that will come so much.
We are moving forward. As much as we get distracted by stupid laws that make us feel like we’re regressing, we’re not. We are moving forward because it’s our turn as young people. It’s a new rights movement. There’s so much that young people want to do and change and see, and I think a lot of that can come through social media.
I put something on my Instagram today about how people are trying now to make the Indiana law look like something that it’s not. They’re trying to make it look like it’s not discriminatory. It’s confusing for my fans, so I’m happy to [speak up about it]. They won’t listen to Tim Cook, maybe. But they’ll listen to me, you know? And people are starting to listen, I think."
