    You cannot possibly support “same sex marriage”, and still hold any respect for what marriage is truly about.



    That's your opinion, which you are entitled to, and which I and a lot of other people don't agree with.

    I would agree except they were all already married, the ceremony was just renewal of their vows. Not at all the same as a mass marriage.

    I don't really care as I find all awards show semi-ridiculous...but marriage on a music awards show?

    Whatever the American masses want I guess.

    What's next...marriage consummations? First arguments? First child births? Live divorce finalization?

    Again they were already married. It was not a marriage ceremony. It was just a celebration of marriage in all forms and a way to inform the public that the music industry is firmly in favor of SSM too. Its a new world that some will just have to get used too.

    I don't much care if people were marrying table lamps (I am for SSM, btw)...like I said, whatever the masses want.

    As long as no one gets hurt...knock yourselves out.

    But still seems a bit goofy to me. Marriages on a music awards show.

    Whatever.

    I agree it seemed goofy but it shows how important SSM is to many in the industry and that it is here to stay. There is no doubt that that was the reason for including it.

    I understand/understood that. And it's a nice gesture for same sex couples.

    It's still goofy.

    The OP's article uses the term "mass marriage," as do other articles. "Renewal of vows" or "re-commitment ceremony" or whatever, the interruption was a stunt, one that served to cheapen both "marriage" and the Grammies, in my opinion. What a challenge for the Oscars to top this, though.

    Wow thats interesting, I probably wasnt going to watch and just catch the clips later but i might have to tune in for this part.

    Such a great thing,seems so nice. Its great some many people are standing up for equal rights and showing what civility, freedom, rights and caring for your fellow americans is all about.
    Reminds me of the movie Scrooged with Bill Murray where he wants to televise the baptism of the entire Zulu Nation.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.
