Miley Cyrus Defends Gay Marriage Beliefs, Tattoo

by at . Comments

Miley Cyrus has gone very public with her defense of gay marriage.

In July of last year, the singer got a tattoo (below) on her finger that she posted on Twitter, along with the caption "All LOVE is Equal." She got a lot of flak for the move, criticism she's now responding to via an editorial in Glamor.

"A lot of people mocked me," Miley writes. "They said, 'What happened to you? You used to be a Christian girl!' And I said, 'Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have your facts straight. Christianity is about love.'"

Cyrus is speaking out now on the topic, she says, due to the "unnecessary threats" leveled at both her and her supporters. She adds:

"I believe every American should be allowed the same rights and civil liberties. Without legalized same-sex marriage, most of the time you cannot share the same health benefits, you are not considered next of kin and you are not granted the same securities as a heterosexual couple. How is this different than having someone sit in the back of the bus because of their skin color?"

It's just not right, Miley concludes of the argument that homosexual couples are somehow held to a different standard than heterosexual couples.

"We all should be tolerant of one another and embrace our differences," she writes.

No doubt Cyrus will fall under fire once again for making her beliefs on this controversial subject well known, which is exactly why we admire her so much for doing so.

christianity is about following God's rules. And being gay is not one of them...so this little girl is a little bit confused. I bet she never read a page from the Bible. Goin to the church on a rare basis doesn't mean knowing the Bible. She shouldn't make herself so ridiculous atleast. Wear the tatoo and shut up. and i AM a Miley fan, but i am not one of those sheep types.

I think that it is good that she is standing up for what she believes in and doesn't give a damn what anyone has to say about it. They always say celebs have to watch what they do or say since their ever move is noted and put in mags, she doesn't care. She isn't like the others who tip toe around worrying what others will say if they do something or say something "wrong." I personally say love is love. If you don't like it then get over it, it isn't hurting you because someone else is gay. The way that straight people look at gays is the same as gays look at straights. I really don't see why people make such a big deal about it..I hope that soon every state makes it legal for them to get married.
