WATCH: Michelle Shocked Claims She’s Not Homophobic, Just Super Jesusy

There’s nothing like a wildly inappropriate rant about homosexual hellfire to get you back on top, is there? Just ask Michelle Shocked, who went on Piers Morgan to discuss said rant.

In what CNN describes as “a rambling, and confusing interview, that at times struggled to remain coherent,”  Shocked admitted that she may have made a mistake — but she was just giving the audience what they wanted: reality.

A reality where Jesus is going to come back once preachers are forced at gunpoint to marry same-sex couples.

Then, when asked if she was homophobic, Shocked continued to ramble, before circling around to the realization that “on the surface” what she said “sounds really bad.” Well, on any surface really.

      She was basically a one hit wonder. Let’s not spend any more time, or expend any more energy, on her crazy ass. She is simply not worth the effort, and surely, is not worth the effort it took me to type this comment.

      These morons should be thrilled their time with Jesus is nigh because of gay marriage. Religion is so stupid.

      Caleb, don’t get it twisted, she had two hits. lol

      I predict that her short career is nearly over. One cannot be this extreme and this bizarre tand survive.

      She is obviously suffering from a mental illness. I hope a friend will insist that she seek help from a mental health professional.

      No clue who this person is other then her recent remarks. Unfortunate that the media, including Queerty continue to give her continued coverage. Can’t we just ignore the no-name homophobes?

      She wasn’t attacking divorce, adultery, murder etc…. She wasn’t attacking any of the main “Laws of God” she was attacking gays.

      Secondly, the REASON for somebody’s bigotry is irrelevant. Before 1980 the Mormons had rules against blacks being full members of their church. The fact that that was their religion doesn’t make it any less rac ist.

      She is simply a bigot.

      Listened to her early in her career (yes, I’m dating myself here). Haven’t heard her for years until this resurfacing. From watching this, she’s either deluded by christofascism or she is mentally ill or both. She’s now moved into damage control and appears to be playing the shitty hand she dealt herself. I see more interviews, maybe a book….. Yuck.

      She’s just simply bat-shit crazy and truly needs a little vacation in a lovely,padded room.

      Raised Mormon, a Closet Case, and now an Evangelical Christian….

      All signs point to crazy.

      Anybody know what is happening with the European leg of her tour? All of her U.S. dates were cancelled, but what about overseas?

      @hephaestion: one doesn’t need medical help, mental health professionals or science when one has Jesus…. Michelle and most of the GOP are living proof of this.

      Really, whoever she is, should also be arrested by the fashion police!

      Am I totally misremembering, or is she calling herself a liar? Because before, she was claiming her rant was misunderstood, that she didn’t mean it at all, that she was quoting what others would say…

      As an Englishman, I hate Piers Morgan. Americans’ have no idea how awful that tabloid newspaper editor who exploited and hurt anyone he could, in order to further his career. Awful!

      Considering this bit of information and how she rambled during the interview…perhaps she truly has mental issues. That would explain a lot.

      From the heartwarming uplift of the Garbage concert/gay marriage proposal to… this. Ughh.
      What the hell am I doing here? I don’t want to see this. I don’t care if she’s mental or self-deluded or hyper-fundamentalist or all of the above. I’m sick unto death of pathetic nincompoops like Shocked using us for cheap, last-gasp grabs at celebrity “relevance.”
      I’m going over to the “Jeffrey Fashion Cares Runway Show” post–who’s with me?
      (Note: I am not a gay man, but I do appreciate me a nice set of abs.)

      Last year nobody even knew who she was. Now she’s a guest on CNN Primetime Live. Homophobia certainly can get you noticed.

      And she’s not schizophrenic. She just hears more voices than you or me.
