The Grammys last night broke a rule. No, not the joining of rapper Kendrick Lamar and Imagine Dragons as they did something never done before – perform a rap song in the form of heavy metal, or is it performing heavy metal in the form of a rap song. Whatever it was, it was amazing, and it was a first according to host LL Cool J.
See it again below. I promise to get into the conservative outrage after the video.
Wow. That was freaking amazing!
But so was the second rule that the Grammys broke last night, and the ourtrage today by the conservatives shows just how big a deal this rule was. Apparently, there was a rule that said never marry gays at the Grammys. That rule is no more as Queen Latifah presided over the joining together of 34 couples. And conservatives are flipping out!
The headline at The Drudge Report this morning spoke of “THE GAYMMYS,” and Twitter was overrun with people discussing the ceremony officiated by Queen Latifah during Macklemore’s performance of the same-sex marriage anthem “Same Love.”
At the conservative site Free Republic, a commenter who confessed to “see[ing] gays at the store” complained about how “[t]hey take every venue, every event, and have to gay it.” Another prayed that “the hands of the demented who applauded this sickeness rot off at their limp wrists.”
Those on the left generally applauded the ceremony. Hemant Mehta, the Friendly Atheist, tweeted:
Gay couples just got mass-married and now robots are embracing each other. All those conservatives’ nightmares have come true. #GRAMMYs

Meanwhile, thousands die yearly at the hands of someone weilding a gun. Yet these same conservatives fight tooth and nail to deny sensible regulations, thus, keeping the death rate as high as possible.
