Bad Religion

George Michael Has Some Choice Words For The People Who Prayed For His Death

Did you know that while I was fighting for my life in Austria, there were a bunch of those lovely American ‘Christian’ organizations, who call themselves ‘Christians for a Moral America,’ who were actually taking the time to pray for me to die. How very sweet of them, considering how busy they must be on the whole. Now don’t get me wrong, I know for a fact that many devout Christians, such as the ones I work, rest, and play with on a daily basis, are truly wonderful, kindhearted men and women who take the best parts of that religion and live admirable, generous and loving lives. But in my opinion, and I think made evident by those who prayed for my death, there are others who use their twisted interpretations of ancient scriptures as a pathetic excuse to be totally fucked-up cock-sucking bastards.

And not in a good way!”

    He should be glad someone thinks he is still relevant enough to even think about him!

  • Lucifer

    Don’t feel to bad Micheal, they prayed the same for Obama and I find that disheartening.

  • Larry

    I can’t believe you use cock sucker as an insult…I don’t care how you meant it

  • Spike

    @Larry: Def ironic that he would use ‘cock sucker’ as a
    means to degrade his detractors. This guy never ceases
    to reveal what a complete and total mess he has become.

  • MikeE

    yes, because of course HE is the real villain in this story, right?
    get your fucking priorities in order people.

    who cares if he’s a washed out has-been.
    who cares if YOU don’t like him personally (and somehow, I DOUBT any of you’ve actually met him in person to make that judgment call).

    those vile pseudo-christians were disgusting and deserve to be universally condemned.
    not George Michael.

  • Mike UK

    makes you wonder who’s more vile, the god squadders praying for him to die or the commentators on here!

  • v

    Ron, chill a bit. The guy almost died.

    For other posters,so he isn’t a poster child for ” appropriate gay role model” behavior.
    Wishing death on him is a bit extreme isn’t it?

  • MikeE

    @ron: he doesn’t represent any such thing.

    any more than newt Gingrich represents everything that’s wrong with modern straight men, demonstrating how they all have no respect for the institution of marriage, abandoning his wife when she’s ill to marry another (twice).

    So George Michael isn’t your idea of a poster child for perfect behaviour by a gay man. So fucking what? He never set himself up as our “official representative”.



  • Bill

    @Spike: @ Larry and Spike He uses cocksucker as an insult to those religious bigots who look down on gay (cocksuckers). To them it is an insult!

  • Mike UK

    @ Ron: why the hell should he be a mouthpiece for those with HIV/AIDS just because he happens to be a gay celeb?

    if the tabloids here in the UK haven’t outed him for being HIV+ I’m intrigued to know how you know he is?

    tip: if you’re going to make a damning statement about someone without knowing whether it’s true or not I suggest you precede it with “alleged”

  • dvlaries

    You’ve got your life back, you’ve got your porn-star trick, you’ve got your money, and somewhere under all your neuroses and grievance, you’ve still got your talent.

    Stop whining.

  • Esculapio Mitiríades Torquemada de la Cueva

    @dvlaries: Doesn’t sound like he’s whining; seems more like he’s taking a (well-deserved) shot at a certain type of Christian conservative. Don’t see the problem here.

  • jj

    “He represents everything that is completely wrong with modern gay men, and gives our enemies the ammunition to oppress us.”

    @RON – considering your comments here, I would say you’re describing yourself to perfection.

  • Ian

    @ron: “Plenty of non-christians and your fellow gays were secretly hoping you’d croak as well, you vile old pervert.”

    WTF, Ron?? Vile old pervert?? Wishing him to die?? What the fuck is wrong with you?

  • Ian

    @ron: “He represents everything that is completely wrong with modern gay men, and gives our enemies the ammunition to oppress us. He won’t do the right thing and become an HIV/AIDS activist.”

    Enlighten us, Ron, as to what is “completely wrong” with “modern gay men”? Must we all become AIDS activists to live up to your expectations? WTF?

  • ian

    Well if that group was behaving in this manner then they are not Christians.

    p.s. all religions are made up bullshit

  • Storm

    In the black communities there used to be an admonition: “You have to be a credit to your race,” or “You ARE a credit to your race.” Meaning, you acted in a manner acceptable to the white fokes. It became a vile insult. Now, when I hear one gay man say to another, “You’re giving ammunition to our enemies!” I hear the same thing: act straight and be ‘acceptable.” It’s the same admonition — be a credit to your (gay) race so those other folks will accept us. It’s still a vile insult.

  • Fitz

    I don’t understand the vitriol some of you have for him.
    He is FLAWED. Like you, like me.
    He’s a homo raised in an anti-homo world and it damaged him a little.
    Like you. Like me.

    Good G-d… don’t you have real things to dislike? You sound like a bored
    housewife getting mad at her soap opera.

  • christopher di spirito

    Self-professed Jebus worshipers are the worst. Look at Tony Perkins, Rick Santorum, Michele Bachmann, Sarah Palin and Joel Osteen. All are queer-haters.

    It’s a sad comment on the state of America that these loons prayed for George Michael to die.

  • Esculapio Mitiríades Torquemada de la Cueva

    @Fitz: I don’t understand either.

    Can someone from the anti-George camp please explain what’s so awful about the guy?

  • gus

    Wow I forgot about that cop dick sucking incident where he got busted.
    I guess his fear of a potential loss in income surpassed his need to be true.
    Just sad. Plain ole sad.

  • For Real

    @Esculapio Mitiríades Torquemada de la Cueva: Similar to other bad gay stereotypes we see on Glee, Modern Family, George is worst of all since he is a real person and can actually change and live a positive life but he chooses to continue to disappoint!

  • Muscle Fan

    George Michael pays his own bills, makes his own art, and lives his life on his own terms pretty much the way he chooses. Sounds like a -great- role model to me.

  • Allen D.

    @ron: And if he’s NOT HIV+? I would go off on an obscenity laced tangent, but that makes Queerty flag (and censor) my comments.

    Your post could very well be as sensical as asking me to become the spokesperson for blonde women. Idiot.

  • Esculapio Mitiríades Torquemada de la Cueva

    @For Real: I’m no fan of gay stereotypes on TV. So I’m with you so far. Where you lose me is on the GM stuff: I’m not a fan of the guy, and just know the stuff about him that pops up periodically on the news. But he’s always really seemed like just another messy celebrity à la, I don’t know, Britney or Lindsay or Mel or Amy or whoever. The fact that he happens to be gay never struck me as his distinguishing characteristic so much as his belonging to the “messed-up celebrity” club.

    Or are we saying that all gay celebrities have a duty to lead exemplary lives?

  • EM

    Well I like George Michael, so there.

  • Keane


  • scotty

    why doesn’t everyone stop acting like george was dan white? the fact is that ANYONE who prays for ANYONE to die is FUCKED UP and doesn’t represent any God anyone would recognize. ignore them, they can’t get anymore traction with the majority of Americans than pat bucahnan or jerry falwell could when they were attacking us at the begining of the pandemic. it is possible some could be dangerous to individuals and a certain amount of caution would be prudent should you meet one in person, but, they constitute no real threat to the movement. NOR DOES GEORGE. LIGHTEN UP!!

  • derick wade

    So George needs to act more Saintly so as not to give the rest of us a bad name? Ridiculous. This particular poverty of thinking is insulting to anyone with a working brain. Perhaps all of you self loathing,psychologically projecting, moralistic shit pastries should sign off, self administer a Drano douche and call it a night.

  • derick wade

    @Ron. I think the Draconian, MegaMoney Pharmaceutical companies already have plenty of people peddling their toxic treats.

  • derick wade

    Damn Ron. If you’re not already a member of this “Moral” America group I’m sure they’d love to have you. Who the fuck are you to dictate who should disclose personal info? You moralistic miscreant.

  • Penelope Clark

    Okay gays you do know that when you assume something it makes a ass out of you and me ( ass-u-me) me for feeling like i have to point stuff out and you for the assumption.

    to assume that just because someone was sick and is gay they have HIV is just stupid!!!!!!!!!!! I ,myself am not gay…and dont have HIV but did have this same type of pneumonia in july and am just now getting back on track with my life! This pneumonia is like a new strain of it and its hard to get rid of it really knocks a person for a loop.

    so dont assume he has HIV because he is sick and gay!!!!!!

    The main point here is a group of people preaching the bible proudly prayed that he would die.. what kind of god would teach that! Im pagan and even our religions do not teach that! and then brag about it on line did these peoples parents teach any of them respect at all… wow all this just blows my mind…
    and ps
    To the ones that say he has done nothing to bring awareness to HIV/aides you need to redo your check work because he has for a long next time you do a back ground check make sure you get all the facts straight please… geeezzzeee


    Well well well, looks like some of those lovely bigoted Christians have taken the time to log on here and spew their vile hatred all over again. He nearly died and I somehow, can’t see Jesus celebrating it. In fact I think Jesus would not tolerate such hatred and bigotry around him, Jesus apparently loves us all, or did you all forget that part?



  • D

    People should look at themselves and reflect before passing judgment on others…

    Sometime as people…we pray for the suffering to end when we see terminalyl ill family and friends living each day with pain…it is the miracle of life that brings us into this world and it should be that same miracle, in any faith that we should reach out to…for everyone, friend or foe.
