Miley Cyrus and Britney Spears have taken to Twitter to support gay marriage, just days after Miss California Carrie Prejean sparked controversy during Sunday night’s Miss USA competition when asked by celeb blogger Perez Hilton asked her if more states should legalize same-sex marriage.
Prejean stated her opinion that marriage should be between a man and a woman — and in the process has made an enemy of Perez Hilton — but has also started a conversation among many notable celebrities on Twitter.
“Love is love!” Britney Tweeted to Perez Hilton. “People should be able to do whatever makes them happy!”
Miley Cyrus Tweeted similar thoughts, telling Hilton, “Jesus loves you and your partner and wants you to know how much he cares! That’s like a daddy not loving his lil boy cuz he’s gay and that is wrong and very sad! Like I said everyone deserves to be happy. I am a Christian and I love you — gay or not. Because you are no different that anyone else! We are all God’s children!”
Apparently her comments are right in line with those of “Hills” star Heidi Montag, who is expected to marry the show’s Spencer Pratt this weekend.
“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. So, yes, this blonde Christian believes in gay marriage and I hope to one day go to your wedding, Perez!!!”
On a related note, I want to tell gossip queen and Miss USA judge Perez Hilton (of whose work we are not a fan) that while his question to the California beauty pageant contestant was brilliant, his behavior afterward — namecalling and disgusting drawings and such — did and does not help the cause for equality and justice. In fact, it may do harm and add an unnecessary speed bump in the road we still must travel. If Hilton wants to stand for justice, fabulous. It would behoove the effort, however, if he behaved like a grownup while doing it.
