Michelle Shocked's Wiki Page Was Updated To Call Her A Bigot

Categories: Religion

Born-again alt-folk singer made incendiary "God hates f*gs" remarks at a concert last night, which have incited her remaining fans and almost made her famous again.

An angry activist type responded by changing Shocked's Wikipedia page to say this.

Alas, the Lord hath gone in and changeth it right back.

That's cool. We'll always have the link (and this screen grab) as our new bible.

When I was in the Music Business back in the 1980s... I would constantly find would-be musicians, or musicians who had actually made something of themselves, who would swing wildly back-and-forth between "Born-Again" and "Satanist-Goth" (Eva O comes to mind).

It seems to be in vogue now that homosexual musicians who have been deluded by an evangelical upbringing are now doing the exact same thing.

The "Cure the Gay" movement is an excellent allegory here as well.

More and more of the "Cure the Gay" Evangelicals are being discovered to be gay themselves (Does Ted Haggard ring any bells with anyone?).

We are just seeing this phenomenon among musicians now, with people unsure of how to handle their sexuality or celebrity, in a culture that worships celebrities in ways that would made a real God blush with shame.


According to those in attendance, she didn't say, "Gd Hates Fa**" She said, "You are going to leave here and tell people, 'Michelle Shocked said God hates faggots."

That sounds like she meant people were going to attribute things she didn't say to her. Only those that were in attendance would know exactly what she said.

While I don't agree with her hateful comments, the media should at least quote her right as many headlines used the Michelle Shocked said, "Gd hates fa**", which is possibly much different than what she may have said or meant.

Pretty irresponsible, "journalism" Musto. 


I forgot all about her - and this was not a good way to get herself remembered.


Michelle you say, "God Hates Fags", boy will you be Shocked to find out, "God Hates Bigots".


send her a letter at Michelle Shocked,  1850 Industrial St  Los Angeles, CA 90021, 7th Floor :)


I thought she was a lesbian.  Why do people have to spew their (self) hatred?


That was actually an anonymous poster, not me.

Someone else added the part about bigotry while I was updating the reference, which I tried to make as neutral as possible, because it's Wikipedia. 

Here's what I added:

According to Entertainment Weekly, Michelle Shocked spoke out against homosexuality during a concert at Yoshi's in San Francisco in March 2013, ending her words by saying ”You can go on Twitter and say, ‘Michelle Shocked says God hates fags.’” [9]
