Miley Cyrus Weighs In On Gay Marriage Debate

Miley Cyrus at dinner with Brandi in Rome

posted a photo while having dinner with her sister Brandi in Rome over at her Twitter page. The 16-year-old is currently promoting ‘Hannah Montana: The Movie’, and found herself wading into the controversy Perez Hilton sparked at the Miss USA pageant on Sunday night, asking Miss California USA about gay marriage, prompting Carrie Prejean to respond that she believes “that a marriage should be between a man and a woman.” Check out Miley and Perez’s conversation on the topic below:

Miley: I believe that EVERYONE deserves to be happy. That’s all I’m saying ;)

Perez: A lot of controversy over your answer, which is silly. I think you answered the question better than Miss California!

Miley: What was her answer??? Cause what I said is the truth. Everyone deserves to love and be loved and most importantly smile :)

Miley: thx! U know what I get crap for whatever I do but you asked me an honest question and I gave an honest answer! So whatevs!!! :)

Perez: I’m sad that people use God and religion as an excuse 2 hate, discriminate and deny gays & lesbians full equality under the law.

Miley: ya thats lame! God’s greatest commandment is to love. And judging is not loving. That’s why Christians have such a bad rep. <3 u

    woo Miley I Love that girl

  2. Amy says:

    Good for you Miley! You are a TRUE Christian. Jesus preached love, not hatred. God bless you!!

  3. Amy says:

    Since when is teaching biblical principles hate?

    Doesn’t the bible want us to be disciples and go out into the world and teach his word?

    Homosexuality was a sin and an abomination in God’s eyes in the bible….has his viewpoint changed?

    It is easy to go with the Hollywood crowd when you are put on the spot, but it takes a real person to state their beliefs when they know they will be persecuted for doing so; Like Miss. Prejean did. I highly respect her.

    Miss. Prejean was given a question and she gave an honest answer on her feelings on this subject. Would you have her lie and go against her beliefs just to win a contest? No, telling the truth is more admirable.

  4. Amy says:

    Look at the online poll I just found….California and Hollywood does not represent mainstream America.

    Do you support gay marriage?





    Total number of votes

  5. God says:

    Amy, your statistics are wrong.

    And the bible isn’t real. You can’t prove the bible with the bible

  6. Richard says:

    The biggest problem with most who are called Christian is they’ve neither read his book(the bible) nor follow his steps. By calling oneself Christian it’s to be understood that one is following the one called Christ, don’t you agree? Christ loves everyone, hence the crucifixion; but Jesus is also the judge. That’s the part no one want’s to deal with, including Miley. The bible is clear: Romans chap 1; Lev. 18. 1 Cor.6. We will all be judged by the by the bible and Jesus. You can’t make everyone happy, but you better please God.

  7. Amy says:

    Those are not my statistics…they come from a major internet poll.

    There actually is historical evidence which proves many things in the bible actually happened, if you are interested in the truth…look it up.

    How do you know the bible is not real?

    What if you’re wrong?

  8. Amanda says:

    What Is Hate?
    According to, hate is “to dislike intensely or passionately; [to] feel extreme aversion for or extreme hostility toward [something or someone].”

    It IS possible to disagree with someone or something (even strongly), and not be guilty of hate.

    The true Christian does not condemn sodomy and ‘same-sex marriage’ because of fear or hate, but because his faith in God’s revelation requires him to do so.”

  9. Dan says:

    I am not sure who this “god” is, but I know it is not the GOD I serve and love. HE puts HIS WORD above his own name, Psalms 138:2. And in his WORD HE does not call homosexuals “gay” He calls them Sodomites. I do not hate but rather Love homosexuals and pray for their salvation. But I do hate the sin and the devil who has perverted this generation into believing that GOD would change His opinion on Sodomy. It still is sin. and Miley is WRONG!!!!!!

  10. Dr Donna K Buechler says:

    I have known I was gay since I was in high school over 40+ years ago. I hated myself because of what my church was saying about me. When I developed my personal relationship with God & quit listening to people, I learned that God created me just the way I am J that God loved me just the way I am. My partner & I belong J attend church but do not believe the discrimination that is taught is from God. The homosexuality that is discussed in the Bible is referring to castrating young males & keeping them as sex slaves. It was not referring to sex between consenting adults.

  11. * says:

    Wow, this is quite AWFUL.

    Dan-YOU RULE.

    Miley-Alright,who said the girl ever hated anyone!! She never said that she didn’t like anyone! She simply stated that she just believed in the opposite sex marriage. What is wrong with that? They asked her a question,she answered. Yes, I believe everyone should be happy, but I also believe in respecting God’s commandments. It would have totally been different if she had of said, “No I hate gays that’s wrong.” But she didn’t.

    Dan I totally agree with you, I love the gays and I don’t believe in what they do, I agree with Miss California because it’s what the Bible says. (“God” the Bible is 100% real.)

  12. Christaian says:

    I respect her for being able to talk her mind and not just “say” what she thinks a gay judge might want her to say in order to win a few more votes. Homosexuality is WRONG. Yes, God loves the homosexual and the lesbian, He just abhors what they do. They will be judged one day by HIM as will the rest of us. As far as being stripped of her crown goes…..I’d rather be stripped of it here on earth than to be stripped of my spiritual crown. She stood for what a true Christian believes.

  13. Christaian says:

    Sometimes it’s a lot easier being a “nobody” than being in the spotlight because you will have to give an account one day for leading young, vulnerable kids(who idolize you), astray by the words that you utter. Rest assured, we will ALL be judged.

  14. Max says:

    Miley did not even deal with the question/problem at hand. The issue is not whether they are allowed to “love” each other. The issue is marriage.

    To be clear, God’s love and justice are inseparable. We all want justice, just so long as we are not the ones in the judgment seat.

    Why is it wrong for Miss California to share her belief (which was not bigotry) but ok for Mr. Hilton to share his? This seems absurd. She can passionately and tactfully share what she believes and she is attacked. He calls her a bi#$# and that’s ok? What in the heck is this world coming to?

  15. Dr. D says:

    Funny how people are listening to the words of a 16 yr. old to look up to. It is not up to Christians to judge homosexuals, but they cannot say that it is ok either.

  16. Julie says:

    ‘Homosexuality was a sin and an abomination in God’s eyes in the bible….has his viewpoint changed?’

    Dude, Jesus never said anything about homosexuality. He did however speak out against divorce. I don’t see Christians in a tizzy about THAT.
    So God’s viewpoint doesn’t change? In that case it’s perfectly okay to stone our kids and kill our neighbors for working on Sunday. Hey, the Bible said it’s okay!

  17. Richard says:

    In response to Julie: Jesus said much more than is indicated by the red letters. In fact read 2 Tim. 3:16 for further explanation. How God deals with man concerning his sin does change, that’s called a dispensation; but sin does not. Sin is Sin, whether O.T. or N.T.; but when God judges it can and has changed. Please read all the N.T. to see what the bible says about this abomination(Romans 1; 1Cor.6). Point to remember the whole bible is the Word of God(Jesus)no matter who the earthly author is. ex Paul,John,and Peter.

  18. Casey says:

    Dan and Amy, I <3 you and you are so right. Everyone else who says you’re wrong is an idiot!

  19. Oregon Sidekick says:

    Dan, God never calls homosexuals sodomites anywhere in the Bible. People who misunderstand/misinterpret the story of Sodom/Gomorrah have used the term sodomites to describe homosexuals. If you think it did, you’re reading your Bible wrong.

    God tells us clearly what the sin of Sodom was: “Now this was the sin of your sister Sodom: She and her daughters were ARROGANT, OVERFED and UNCONCERNED; they DID NOT HELP THE POOR AND NEEDY. They were HAUGHTY and did detestable things before me. Therefore I did away with them as you have seen.” (Ezekiel 16:49-50). If you think you can point to the men of the city wanting to have sex with the angels – if that was homosexuality, then why did Lot think he could offer them his daughters. He knew them, he knew that they were just perverted and that they weren’t gay.

    That said, I am so proud of Miley Cyrus. My 9-year-old daughter and I have always liked Hannah Montana and Miley Cyrus and to hear that she supports gay marriage and gay people and stands up for what the Bible really says makes me so happy and proud of her.

  20. angel says:

    It has now been proven that homosexuality derives from an inborn brain function. So if all people are created in God’s image, then how can God oppose homosexuality since He has created it? And if you say no, homosexuality is a defect in the brain, then you are dismissing God’s power to create life exactly as He wants it to be. It always amazes me how people would rather rely on their own translation of an ancient book from a vastly different culture (which means it was written in a symbolic, metaphorical, profoundly true way we no longer normally read) than by actually looking at the evidence God gives us in the natural world all around.

  21. dan says:

    Oregon sidekick. You said it yourself, they did destitute or as it is found in the KJV Abomination. check out Leviticus 18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. Also Romans 1:21-28. 21Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 23And changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and four footed beasts, and creeping things. 24Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves: 25Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. 26For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet. 28And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient

    As for Angel. Where is the proof? So if I go out and kill a bunch of people like Charles Manson, I can blame God for that because he made me like that. But in fact we all are sinner, and all of us deserve to go to HELL whether we are heterosexual or homosexual. Romans 3:10 There is none righteous, no not one. Romans 3:23 For ALL have sinned and come short of the Glory of God. Am I better than anyone else? the answer is absolutely not. I am a worthless dog that God saved through the precious blood of Jesus Christ. Jesus loves and died for everyone, but we must confess our sins to God and ask him to forgive us our sins, and trust in the finished work of Christ on Calvary’s tree. Rm 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus Christ and believe in thy heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

  22. Bill says:

    Men and women are different. They contribute different things to a child. Societies all over the planet, for thousands of years, have understood this. It was understood that from the child’s standpoint, all things being equal, it is better to have a mother and a father than two fathers or two mothers.

    Societies therefore created the concept of “marriage” to encourage men and women to join together for the sake of children. *This has nothing to do with love.* It has to do with what is best for the child. Of course, love is an added benefit, but it *was not and is not the basis of the reason for marriage.*

    Marriage is a license from the state. Marriage is not a right. It is a definition. A driver’s license is a license from the state. It is not a right. The state says minors can’t marry; siblings can’t marry; multiple partners can’t marry, and same sex partners can’t marry. Marriage is discriminatory.

    However, there is NOTHING that stops gays from getting married–as long as it is between a man and a woman.

    So, marriage was based on being between man and a women. But now people want to define it on the basis of love–alone. Well, the consequence of this is that there is *no way* to say three people who love each other can’t get married. Nor can anyone stop siblings who love each other from being married. You may not like the idea of siblings being married. But once love becomes the criteria, you will have no legal way to stop it.

    Those who are fighting to keep marriage defined as it has been for all history understand this.

  23. Lita says:

    Miss Cyrus – that you so much for your comments. Stick to your beliefs and don’t let anyone try and change them!

  24. Josh says:

    Actually who cares what she thinks? Some of you people are so gullible to think that she is so much smarter just because she can sing.

  25. Josh says:

    The most recent explanation is that people are just “born that way.” Let’s think about that. Let’s say a man is born a kleptomaniac. Should society give him the freedom to steal? What if a man has a natural tendency toward adultery? Should it be approved? You see, the question is not that of psychological predisposition. The question is one of morality — and one of obedience. To practice homosexuality is a choice of the will. Whatever affinity anyone may or may not have for it, to practice it he must choose to do so. Scripture describes it as always wrong, and so to choose to practice it is always sin.

    But think about this claim of “natural tendency” a bit further. It is a denial of the fact that according to what God says no one is born that way. There is no such thing as a homosexual child. Homosexuality is “unnatural” and contrary to conscience. It is practiced only and always out of rebellion.

  26. Josh says:

    It could provide a slippery slope in the legality of marriage (e.g. having multiple wives or marrying an object could be next). Gay rights activists claim that these marriages should be allowed because it doesn’t hurt anyone, but it could start a chain reaction that destroys the whole idea of marriage. If someone wants to marry his dog, why shouldn’t he be able to? What if someone wants to marry their brother or parent? What if someone wants to marry their blow-up doll or have 10 wives? Unless we develop some firm definition of what a marriage is, the options are endless. If these options sound absurd, remember that all it takes is a few activist judges to use the statute to open the door. It doesn’t matter if 95 percent of the population disagrees with the policy, one judge can interpret the case the way he or she wants and use the doctrine of stare decisis to impose a law on everyone. Do you remember how two judges in California recently declared the Pledge of Allegiance unconstitutional? If the decision hadn’t been overturned, it would have prevented millions of children from being able to say the pledge every morning, despite the fact that 95+ percent of Americans disagreed with the decision.

    The gay lifestyle is not something to be encouraged, as a lot of research shows it leads to a much lower life expectancy, psychological disorders, and other problems. Studies show that homosexuals, for a variety of reasons, have life expectancies of approximately 20 years less than the general population. Just like a lifestyle of smoking, drinking, etc., unhealthy lifestyles should be discouraged.
    It would weaken the definition and respect for the institution of marriage. The 50 percent divorce rate has already weakened the definition of marriage. We shouldn’t be taking further steps to define what marriage is. A law allowing gay marriage would increase the number of joke or non-serious marriages, such as a couple of friends who want to save on taxes. Marriage is the most sacred institution in this country, and every society considers it the joining of a man and a woman. It makes biological sense since only a man and woman can pro-create.

    It would further weaken the traditional family values essential to our society. The building blocks of our society and the thing that makes it strong is the traditional family of man, woman, and children. It is what has sustained us through two world wars, a great depression, and numerous other challenges over the centuries. While friends & lovers come and go, your family is always there. The main reason our culture and values have started to crumble is the weakening of families. Introducing another form of “family” would only make the situation worse.

    I agree about how some Christians use that excuse to discriminate against gays & lesbians….

    I believe (even though I am a Christian) that everyone DOES deserve to be happy because the Bible in my religion says…homosexuality is MORALLY wrong….


    that God makes everyone in his/her own unique way…

    (in other words…they are born that way and I respect that…it’s just who they are and nobody can change them.)…

    and besides it’s not like the Bible is 1,000% right…

    (I’m not trying to offend anyone or anything but…)

    how do we as Christians not know that some random…(or maybe not random)…guy came up and decided that HE ALONE didn’t like homosexuals and put that in to the Bible? That is a big mistake that has been ignored and taken the wrong way for many years.

    I really don’t want to offend anyone it’s just what I believe

  28. xXGabrielaXx says:

    I do support gay marriage.

    those of you who are like:

    “Eww…she’s gay! stay away from her…she might hit on me or something…”

    don’t flatter yourself
    most homosexuals have boundaries and most likely will not “hit on you” because of your attitude towards them.

    so just get over it and calm down.

    if not then just stay away…you don’t have to go around gossiping about it..jeez

  29. xXGabrielaXx says:


    when you said:

    >As for Angel. Where is the proof? So if I go out and kill a bunch of people like Charles Manson, I can blame God for that because he made me like that.

    have you listened to yourself?
    (I’m being dead serious…not joking or making fun of you)

    1) when you said where’s the proof?…that is testing God…surely you would know about it.

    2)If you go out and kill Charles Manson then that would be murder and if you want to go to jail then go kill him but…you can’t blame God…because yes he made you but YOU MAKE YOUR OWN CHOICES…not him…that’s why he puts all these obstacles in your life so that YOU CAN CHOOSE whether or not to go down the right path or not. And yes it is true that we are all sinners…and we all should go to hell but we don’t deserve it..the reason we deserve it or not is because WE MAKE OUR OWN CHOICES and the choices we make determines if we go to hell or not…again that’s God’s choice.

    3)you are not a worthless dog…you make yourself that way……i bet (since your quoting all those versus) that you have true potential in you to become a leader and teach what is TRUE…(YOUR GAME OF RECITING VERSUS JUST TO TWIST GODS WORD AROUND IS NOT THE TRUTH.)


    you could just sit back and complain like you are doing now.

    you may not agree with me but that’s your opinion not mine and I’m not trying to change it (that’s your choice), even though it might sound like it…

  30. anomynous says:

    this time I’m against Miley in gods eyes gay marriage is wrong and they are sinning for its in the bible genesis 1:26 to 5:5 that god made Adam and Eve not Adam and Steve I highly respect Miss Prejean for her honest opinion that she believes a marriage should be between a man and woman it irritates me when Miley tries to twist gods words and say he loves all of us , he does but that does not mean he allows gay marriage for god tests us in this world which is a big challenge and people get caught up in other opinions they twist god words just to be on peoples good side, Miley I hope you know what you said was a big no. no against god

  31. kwesi says:

    All them battyman will die because in the bible says that God created them male and female and to go out and multiply and God made Adam and Eve not battyman Steve.

    For the same reason that’s why God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah for their Gayness which is an abomination to God

    That girl need to read the bible more and stop talk one set ah bullsh**….done know!!!!

  32. Vanessa says:

    All you people who are Christian and straight have no idea how it feels to be gay. Don’t say stuff about something which you haven’t even experienced.
    I am Christian and Jesus loves me as well and you can’t do anything about it!

  33. Debbie says:

    It is quite common for the enemy of Christ to get prominent Christians to believe lies and speak them out. The enemy of God’s children wants nothing but their death and destruction.
    We are all judge by what we did with the knowledge of Jesus’ life, death and resurrection. Not by who we slept with yet who you sleep with speaks loudly of who you believe Jesus to be.

  34. Sarah says:

    I understand where Miley is coming from. God loves everyone, but he does not love their sin. I will love gay people same as straight people because everyone deserves to be loved, and God loves them, but eventually one day judgement will be passed. No offense to anyone, but I do admire miss California for not being beaten into submission.

  35. tat says:

    hey I say that gay marriage is not right

  36. NiaSha says:

    Wow, I’ve never really liked Miley Cyrus. I mean, she is actually a pretty darn good singer, and she’s really beautiful- but I always found her annoying for some reason.
    I was so surprised to find this, I honestly thought Miley Cyrus would give an old fashioned statement about how she personally believes marriage should be between a man and a woman. But this was a real wake up call.

    She’s a good kid. I’m not saying that I’ve converted to a full-on Cyrus fan and I’m out the door to get her latest Hannah Montana single, but she is a real good person with a real good talent. I respect her.
    Anyone who believes EVERYONE should be loved, is a person with a heart of gold.

    I just lose respect for people who don’t believe in homosexuality. Would all you haters believe that black people shouldn’t marry white people- if it said so in the Bible? Would you believe that Asian people can’t marry British people because there’s a whole testament in the Bible saying it’s wrong?
    Because, my good people, I do believe that would be racist.

    It’s sad though. All I can do is type down a message through the internet that will probably be forgotten past all the other messages stating their own opinion. It’s sad that even though I’m not gay, I’m still fighting for gay rights with everyone around me putting me down.
    It’s sad that I can’t say anything significant enough to make people realize that everyone really does deserve to be loved, and that I’m still fighting to see the good in everyone’s hearts.

    God bless Miley Cyrus for shedding that small bit of hope that some people are better than that.
    What she said really made my day.

  37. alizee says:

    wtf, as conservative as she is I would have thought, that she is also as extreme as other fundamentalists…

    I am very surprised. Perhaps she is not as ignorant as I thought. Great, Miley


  38. ashlyn says:

    I am a Christian and god created Adam and Eve not Adam and Steve!!!!!! His greatest commandment might have been to love but not to love the same sex! It might say a commandment is to love all…….but it also says whosoever shall love the same sex is an abomination unto god. There are many things that the bible says not to do but people do it anyways and call themselves Christians. Unless you live the way god said and you have repented and got baptized in the name of Jesus.

    Don’t get me wrong I love Miley Cyrus and all……….But some of the stuff she does makes me sad. My little sisters look up to her. They are young and they really love her she’s the best singer in the world they think. Well I hope she changes her mind about what she follows……

    Peace out
    -Ashlyn Sheffield
