Country Singer Trace Adkins On The Record ***AGAINST*** Same-Sex Marriage

“Through civil unions, gay couples are welcome to all the legal benefits that married couples get. But please don’t call it marriage, okay? I know it’s just semantics, but words have meaning. And that’s where I draw the line — and that’s where I draw the line. And please don’t call me homophobic, or whatever y’all call it, because I’m not afraid, least of all of lesbians or gays. Lots of gays are country music fans.”

On July 5, 2001, Adkins was charged with driving under the influence in Nolensville, Tennessee. The singer pled guilty and was sentenced to 11 months in jail; however, the sentence was suspended after 48 hours. In addition, he had to pay $350 in fines, and his driver's license was suspended for one year.

As a youth, Trace was in an automobile accident in which his 1955 pickup truck hit a bus head-on. Both his arms, a leg, and some ribs were broken and his nose was partially torn off. Trace was forced to give up football after a severe knee injury at Louisiana Tech. He has also experienced a number of serious injuries as an adult, including being shot by his ex-wife in 1994. The bullet went through his heart and both lungs. He survived and chose not to press charges. The little finger on his left hand was partially severed and surgically re-attached.

No, R20, even if he supported gay marriage, I'd say the same thing. It's a political belief spoken from a non-political person.

The fact that we are discussing this means that this is a celebrity using their celebrity for some other purpose, OBVIOUSLY.

Homophobia is homophia with or without dragging semantics into it. Live and let live. And if the 'abuse' of the word marriage is the only big thing that bothers Trace Adkins so much he should consider himself the luckiest man in the world.

I hate this piece of trash for all the reasons listed above, but even more for this:

[quote]“Through civil unions, gay couples are welcome to all the legal benefits that married couples get.

Out and out lie. Gay people cannot get the legal benefits of marriage through civil unions. CUs do not exist in most states, civil unions are in fact illegal by constitutional amendment in many states, and they are not recognized at all BY LAW at the federal level even in the few states where they exist. And this doesn't even start on the fact that in the tiny handful of states where CUs do exist rarely do they measure up to the benefits of full marriage.

Interesting that this shithead has to make it up wholesale to make a point. Pure ignorance.

Dearest, r21... This is more than just a disagreement about the new Batman film or Rihanna's latest album.

It's about civil equality, Some views are reprehensible, and this is one of them. Someone who denies the holocaust or says blacks are inferior doesn't just merely have a different opinion that needs to be respected, you retard.

by Anonymousreply 3607/19/2012

It's one thing for someone to have a differing personal opinion if the topic is taxation or war or economic recovery, it's quite a DIFFERENT thing to have a differing personal opinion when the topic is YOUR CIVIL RIGHTS. One does NOT have to "respect" that differing opinion. I do NOT have to "respect" that someone thinks I am a lesser human. YOU can respect it, but you are stupid beyond debate if you think I should respect someone's anti-gay opinion as a valid opinion.

by Anonymousreply 3707/19/2012

What people like Atkins and his apologists on here don't get is that any other terminology for gay marriage would be second best.

It would reinforce the opinion that we are not equal to 'straight' people and not worthy of the institution of marriage.

They're hung up on the old definition of marriage being for procreation only. That's the problem.

They are conveniently and homophobically forgetting that (a) many straight people have children out of wedlock, (b) most marriages end in divorce, and (c) many marriages produce no children.

I know people who have gone from out-and-out homophobia, to believing that gays are "OK" and should have civil unions but not call it "marriage", to supporting full equality and marriage rights for all. Perhaps this Trace guy is evolving along the path to enlightenment. The fight is going to take many years.

If Country Music wants to be a bastion of homophobia and racism, it has the right to do that. What it does NOT have the right to do, is claim otherwise, which is what Trace Adkins and so many other Country Music singers do. AKA I don't think Gays should have full equality but that doesn't mean I'm homophobic.....

B*ULL SH*IT... Thats EXACTLY what it means.

Everyone has a right to voice his opinion, just as we have the right as consumers to support them or not after they speak. I've been loving seeing all the bands/artists I follow on Facebook voice their support. This one from Shovels & Rope is my favorite so far:

[quote]We stand in staunch support of ALL people who love each other uniting in marriage in the eyes of God and State. We pray for peace for those who can not reconcile it in their hearts, and we though understand the challenges it faces to the religion of friends and family, we support equality under the law for gay marriage. We are praying for the wisdom of the court to recognize this. "In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends." ― Martin Luther King, Jr.

by Anonymousreply 6803/26/2013

I love this "it's just a difference of opinion/get over it" shit.

It's hardly a surprise that this fool is a homophobe, but when it comes to personal equality, it's a lot more than a difference of opinion.

Anyone trying to lighten the load on Adkins is either a straight phobe or a coward who's daydreaming about sucking his dick. Both can suck shit out of his ass.
