Michelle Shocked: Activist Singer Declares, “Gods Hates Fags” in San Francisco
You can go on Twitter and say ‘Michelle Shocked says God hates fags.’
Shocked, who self-released the album Kind Hearted Woman after leaving Mercury Records, and contributed an original song to the soundtrack for the film Dead Man Walking called “Quality of Mercy,” is clearly neither the former and lacking in the latter. On her Facebook page Shocked describes herself as
your average anarchist skateboard punk rock born again Christian.
Maybe she should hook up with Fred Phelps. They have a few openings in his hate-filled family cult. Tweets from appalled concert-goers at Yoshi’s in San Francisco included:
“she said gay marriage would cause the end of the world” — @anile02
“wow, she’s a total bigot and said so on stage. It was unreal. We had to leave. I am so disappointed.” — @lisahubbert
Video gamer blogger and online personality Matt Penfield, who was tweeting the show for Shocked was stunned, reporting on his Twitter feed:
adding that he was proud of the audience for voting with their feet.
