If you watched last week's music awards, you know it wasn't your Grammie's Grammys. Hello, I'm Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C. If the music industry was trying to give conservatives another reason not to watch their biggest award show, they succeeded. Organizers spent more time promoting same-sex "marriage" than the country's best singers. The biggest spectacle was a massive on-stage wedding ceremony for homosexuals, set to a live performance of the conservative-bashing song, "Same Love." And while morality hasn't exactly been a guiding principle of Hollywood, several people think the Grammys went too far -- especially in a country where the majority supports natural marriage. Maybe that's why the producer of the Grammys is suddenly backpedaling on whose idea it was. "I would not want to make a broad statement that it represents the views of the Academy or CBS," he said. Obviously, it's the Grammys' right to make a political statement. Just don't be surprised when fans make one of their own -- and start turning the industry out.
