Now that the Supreme Court has legalized same-sex marriage, the LGBT community and their supporters are celebrating the huge step forward the United States has taken. It has been a long time coming, and those in the LGBT community now have the right to walk down the aisle with the one they love. The ruling was celebrated nationwide, and many celebrities spoke out and gave their support to those in the LGBT community. Miley Cyrus was one of these very vocal supporters. She even has an equal sign tattooed on her ring finger in support of same-sex marriage.
But despite the many celebs who celebrated the ruling, there are a few who won’t be waving around a LGBT flag any time soon. Many of these celebrities’ opinions on gay rights stem from their deep religious viewpoints, while others come across as just being homophobic.
Actor Kirk Cameron is one Hollywood celeb who basis his opinion on gay rights on the teachings of the bible. The born-again Christian has gone on the record to condemn gays, and he even thinks homosexuality is detrimental and destructive to civilization as we know it. Despite receiving backlash from LGBT advocate groups, Kirk stands by his opinion, and we doubt he will be changing his mind anytime soon.
Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao is another devout Christian who stands behind his religion and his thoughts on homosexuality. Manny didn’t care about being PC when he said homosexuals were “worse than animals.” Even after receiving backlash for his statements, Manny stood firm on his opinion. He apologized for his comments, but he still feels that homosexuality and same-sex marriage is something that is “against the law of God.”
Other celebrities can’t hide behind their religion when it comes to their disapproval of gays. Singer Chris Brown, for example, seems to have a negative opinion on homosexuals that is deeply rooted in homophobia. The singer has used gay slurs on social media more times than we can count, and he was also accused of telling a male fan “I’’m not into this gay s—t,” before punching him in the face.
Despite this list of celebrities who don’t support gay rights, there are millions of other people in the world who are all for equal rights of everyone regardless of their sexual preference.
