Grace Slick Sentenced To Death By Trump Nutter

We’re not sure that Grace Slick really cares, but Franklin Graham, head of the Christian charity Samaritan’s Purse and a speaker at President Trump’s inauguration, has told her she has a “death sentence” for supporting an LGBTQ charity.

During the Grammy Awards, a national advertisement ran for Chick-fil-A, a chain that has regularly donated to anti-gay charities, that included the 1997 Starship hit Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now. Slick, who sang on the record, licensed the use for the ad even though she is a strong supporter of gay rights and knew the stance of the restaurant chain, but decided to do it anyway but give all the proceeds from the song placement to Lambda Legal, an organization dedicated to advancing the civil rights of LGBTQ people.

She told Forbes, “…instead of them replacing my song with someone else’s and losing this opportunity to strike back at anti-LGBTQ forces, I decided to spend the cash in direct opposition to “Check”-fil-A’s causes – and to make a public example of them, too. We’re going to take some of their money, and pay it back.”

That hasn’t set well with Graham who, last Friday, used Facebook to push his form of Christianity, writing:

Jefferson Airplane band’s now 77 year-old lead singer Grace Slick has announced that the money she receives from the use of her song in a Chick-fil-A ad (bought by an ad agency) will go to fund LGBTQ causes. She certainly has the right to do that, it’s her money, she earned it. She said, “I firmly believe that men should be able to marry men, and women women. I am passionately against anyone who would try to suppress this basic human right.”

What I want Grace and others to know is that Almighty God created and defined marriage in His Word. Any sexual relationship outside of marriage between a man and a woman is sin, and all sin carries a death sentence. But God loves mankind so much that He sent His Son Jesus Christ to save us from the death penalty of sin. He is willing to forgive the sin in our lives if we will call on Him in faith. He is the only one who can bring the healing and transformation our hearts need. Grace, it’s my hope and prayer that you will put your faith and trust in Jesus Christ because He loves you very much.

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).

So far, no comment from Slick on her “sentence”.

I could go to a James Taylor show just for the stories. The man is a part of music history and is still around to tell the tales of how it all began. Like, for instance, being the first artist signed to Apple Records. James “auditioned” for Apple with his song ‘Something In The Way She Moves’. "Paul went away and started the label and George went away and wrote the song”, he said.
