“Scandal” star Kerry Washington stood up for same-sex rights in a fiery speech Saturday night that brought a cheering crowd to its feet. Washington made the remarks in her acceptance speech at the 26th Annual GLAAD Media Awards, where she received the Vanguard Award for promoting equality.

In addition to calling for more representation of the LGBT community in Hollywood, she also called out marginalized communities for turning against each other, encouraging them to come together.

“Women, poor people, people of color, people with disabilities, immigrants, gay men, lesbians, bisexuals, trans people, intersex people: we have been pitted against each other and made to feel like there are limited seats at the table for those of us who fall into the category of ‘other,'” she said.

“As others, we are taught that to be successful, we must reject those other others, or we will never belong.” She also challenged black people who don’t support gay marriage to resist “messages of hate.”

“We can’t say that we believe in each other’s fundamental humanity and then turn a blind eye to the reality of each others’ existence and the truth of each other’s hearts. We must be allies. And we must be allies in this business because to be represented is to be humanized. And as long as anyone, anywhere is being made to feel less human, our very definition of humanity is at stake and we are all vulnerable.”

    Let no man decieve you with vain words coz of this things comes the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience…..it really was a mega mess.

  2. C. Dixon

    I just don’t get it. Why are all these worldly celebrities allowed to stand in front God’s people when a gathering of worship occurs. Are thier hearts anywhere near the heart of God? Popularity seems to be a drawing point to get the crowds in, not the drawing of the Holy Ghost. What edification do they have for the body? Jeez, Steve Harvey stands on stage at the mega mess, and then excuses himself, and Christians in the audience cracks up. Saints, no matter how famous they are, our God is still holy, and his son’s death on Calvary was not for naught, but to deliver those who want the church to accept thier ways.

    I guess if you’re receiving an award at a function governed by the gay community, you’ll say what they want to hear. Principled Christians would never stoop to this level. Hopefully, Ms. Washington gives further thoughts to this action and changes her tune.

  4. Kerry

    Here’s another person who I don’t give a fart about what she thinks, wow I watch that show for a minute and got so discused with it. It was probably the nastiest dhow on TV.

  5. TerranceMinister Woods,esq

    How would that be any differant then being colored in America,,well with color it is permanent,with homosexuality is,learned from society and influenced by the workers who are of its mental illness.

  6. Paula

    So then she was challenging T.D. Jakes and all those who go to his church to stop the hate messages? Since when does ‘I do not agree with your life style’ is translated ‘I hate you’? Why does Mr. Jakes and all the other celebrity pastors associate with these ungodly people?? I think I just answered my own question.

  7. Wanda

    Blessings Ex Mistries and Pastor Graige,

    I say to to Kerry Washington! SHUT UP! And REPENT! Her show scandal and her money is talking through her for higher ratings. She has forgotten where she’s come from. I have never watched scandal anyway Will I never ever! SHame on the Potters House, you don’t represent God , You are representing your money to get more money, mo money. I’m not impressed with foolishness big or small. REPENT!!!

  8. James Cooks

    Listed to the play on words by these crafty people, they want you to believe that if you don’t agree with the same sex message you are committing a hate crime. Most of all celebrities believe in all immoral acts and we seen last year how the church and the world merged together at Mega Mess. Kerry Washington and many like her are leading many people (believers and non believers) down a path that destroys. Celebrities, athletes, and politicians are not good people to follow when it comes down to obeying God’s Law and statutes.

  9. Angela Williams

    The devil plays on people’s emotions. He’s trying to appeal to the “intellect” to make people who stand for biblical principles rethink their stance. SMH. I pray the people of God stand firm. The devil isn’t playing, and neither should we.
    We have to be on guard. Now IS NOT the time to sleep.

  10. Bruce

    i definitely do not support so called earthy same sex marriage . This agenda is mainly supported by women who are lesbians and are the weaker sex and who are seeking political and sexist ground to emasculate men .

  11. Jameel

    What a bunch of silly foolishness. This is an awful shame to say that she’s blessed from God to have the Church excited by Adultery is an utter shame. If we did our job as a church this would not be taking place. How dare Kerry Washington says that the Lord gives her these ridiculous parts to destroy us. Then to call out Black people for the sake of supporting the LGBT. We are going to see the coming of our Lord Jesus very soon and every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that he is LORD!!!!

  12. Jenn

    I read about this speech earlier today and it confirmed why our household does not watch ie support any television program that aggressively pushes this agenda. Of recent time Hollywood is really pushing it towards the black community, Empire, Sam Smith, etc. If every person that proclaimed Christ would cut that mess off! Safeguard your homes and minds. The world is gonna do their mess and their sin. We have to choose to withstand, be a light, be the remnant, be the church. Live out truth in love.

    1. C. Dixon

      It sure would be awesome if the the church really would reunite and guard our eyes and ears gates by not being glued to a t.v. series or movie that promotes the sin(s) that causes our God to be ashamed.

  13. HB

    SMH, I’m sorry but all she is saying is baloney! She has to say
    the things she is saying because she’s part of the system
    that promotes that very garbage! She will not under any
    circumstances come against the LGBT agenda
    it’s a sure way to destroy her money, fame and career! So,
    to folks like her or anyone else who supports LBGT
    causes, they put their spin on it with a few bell and whistle words
    such as humanity, civil rights to make that wicked
    lifestyle accepting to all. Well, everyone has free will yes,
    no matter how much they appeal to people that behavior is
    normal, it’s still SIN! And how dare she call folks out for not supporting sin!
    Unfortunately, in setting like MegaFest I suspect most were too busy
    being star struck instead of getting delivered from their issues, let
    alone seeing right thru the foolishness of her words.

    1. travis

      Why do you think her saying anything against gay people will hurt her career? Is it because most of the population is sane and wouldn’t support her anymore if she was against people that are the way God made them? You’re all an idiots.

      1. HB

        Hollywood promotes that very lifestyle! She makes her living in that industry therefore it
        would be wise for her to not talk against that lifestyle if she still wants to work and you need
        to watch the name calling here pal!!

  14. C. Dixon

    When will the church wake up and take hold to the fact that we should celebrate Jesus, and be ruled by his spirit and word! Washington is wrong without discourse. She is invited to a gathering of God’s people? Were there edification in the words she spoke? Come on, saints. Get it together. Jesus is high and lifted up, not black celebrities that negates the very word of God.

  15. Armedia

    What? Just crazy, nothing but lies, black folks if you believe this you will believe anything that Hollywood folks will say and support. Stay in the word.

  16. Dorene

    Really! I never will judge another person but enough is enough! I don’t want to
    Know what and who doing what in your bedrooms! Also I know God
    DO NOT MAKE MIStakes! When man try to correct God the outcome
    Is Hell! God made me a Woman I love my Husband he was born
    Male. We have children together we now have grand children we
    Had them naturally we enjoyed that being fruitful. Folks don’t follow
    What some of these folks on television are trying to convince you
    This lifestyle is man made man following man it will not work!

    1. Cheryl J Grady

      Jack, you said a mouthful….you will dance with who bought you or you won’t dance at all..and I thought the same thing when she said “humanity’s definition is at stake.” We clearly know what SHE meant by saying that and to those who truly believe in God, got the meaning you got! Thanks for sharing your views.

  17. Cynthia

    I wonder how many people that have called what Kerry said as unbiblical watch Scandal. I am not surprised by her comments at all. Look, Hollywood has sold slavery in the show Scandal as ok. 200 years ago a married white man having a black woman at his whim and will=slavery. Same beautiful woman in a suit with a good paying job and today it’s called love. Forgive me if I have it wrong as I do not watch Scandal and or Empire. I have enough in my life.

    1. Sam Medina

      The leaders of the church don’t teach real holiness for the most part… as Leonard Ravenhill once said, ‘When churches find something in the Bible they don’t like, they call it legalism.’

      I know quite a few preachers who watch Scandal, and post about it regularly, disregarding what Psalm 101:3 says:

      I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me.

      I

    2. Akil

      To Kerry Washington, you are an example of a Mis -Educated Negro, I challenge you to go find out about your Afrikan history and culture. (Remember the former slave master and his descendants will never teach you the truth because there whole position and status is base on lies.) The promotion of the so called LBGT is just another form of genocide, in particularly the Afrikan/ African American communities all over the world. Go do a little research and I mean really go see for yourself that this phenomenon is something that is orchestrated by the European. You will find these practices very pervasive in European history.

    These celebrities have to say what they say because they commit themselves to the god of this world. Notice, she didn’t say anything about Jesus Christ. We need to start asking folks which god their talking about. She’s already given herself over to the wicked one. Her mission is now to confuse the church. But very few people are actually the church in America these days anyway. Oh Lord, we repent of being led astray, evil, vile, full of ungodly affections, trying to make you apart of our whoredoms. Let us return to Your heart and mind for Your people.

    1. Cheryl J Grady

      So true, itiswhatitis – the god they refer to is NOT the creator of heaven, earth, and all the planets and the stars..and I am certainly NOT talking about celebrities of this world. When the Lord and Savior Jesus the Christ hung on that cross and said, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do..”, it went far beyond the folks that were there when Christ was being crucified for the forgiveness of sins…
      Thank you for sharing what was on your heart. May God have mercy on us all.

  19. Sam Medina

    This isn’t surprising. She was paid to be at megafest to help draw the crow, the same as any other celebrity guest or speaker. Considering the Jakes is already comparing David and Jonathan of the Bible to a homosexual couple, it’s hardly surprising that he would bring such people into his money-making events.

    Yes, folks, in the end, megafest is about money.

  20. Rachel

    If God says something is wrong it is wrong..no one who now come or who was here a thousand years ago can say it’s right. Whenever we stand for what is right we are viewed as radicals or people who accept messages of hate. We didn’t now come to make this up..this is God’s eternal word..the same word that says lying, murdering, committing adultery and fornication and coveting what others have and all the other commandments is the same God that said homosexuality is an abomination. Jesus Christ the same yesterday today and forever..get with the programme

  21. David Monnig

    The cry of the advocates for LGBT equality and same-sex marriage – continually use a primary argument that these folks are “born gay” or “born an LGBT”. This in turn leads them to argue that they are fighting for “Civil Rights” – which in turn angers most every person of color I know. It is certainly, at the very least, a slap in the fact to those folks of color who gave their all to gain equal rights for blacks. It is slap in the fact to those folks such as Harriet Tubman.

    Yet – 40 years of genetic science and over 50 years of behavior research prove otherwise.

  22. george harrison

    I am calling out christians, and you know who you are, for watching that trash, perverted show Scandal along with that fruity queer-hip hop trash show Empire. Two dudes, no way, I never watched one episode. Preachers of L.A and Detroit is good because it exposes a lot of fake-money hungry, fame seeking ministers, this show is trash and need to be cancelled.

    1. Cheryl J Grady

      Mr. George Harrison, from the pilots online that I have seen of Preachers of LA, I don’t see that show as being one that is good to watch either. These men, from what I have seen are not displaying the “workers” according to the Lord and Savior Jesus the Christ, who “in the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning.” John 1:1-2 (NIV)
      Unfortunately, there are hardly ANY shows that come across the television that are true Christ followers should be watching. The few shows that are out there may be overlooked because they are not “thrilling” enough, or so the publicists and those who are well paid, will broadcast to the world…
      I appreciate this reply line so that we all can voice our views with hope that others who see it will share in “the truth” which will truly make us free.
      I thank you also Mr. Harrison for your views.

  23. george harrison

    Money making, preacher faking TD Jakes. how can a man of God be buddies with hollywood stars when you know what they stand for. You can’t serve two masters, you can’t serve God and mammothmoney.

  24. george harrison

    Wow, like Obama, Kerry Washington knows how to play to her audience. Wonder if money Jakes gonna invite Kerry to the next Mega mess.

  25. PROPHET J.

    Jakes, Blake, and many other so called “church leaders” are about one thing…MONEY-MONEY-MONEY-MONEY-MONEY!!! Kerry Washington is clearly BOUGHT & PAID FOR. I have never seen her trashy TV show: I usually flip the channel when the ad comes on! Did I hear her right? She believe that we are MANDATED to stand with these perverts? I have tried to warn people about Jakes and others like him, but they just get mad and I move on. They have become many of the churchgoers idols. I don’t recall any of the LGBT reps marching for civil rights in the ’50s & ’60s…THEY WERE IN THEIR CLOSETS! I don’t recall any of them getting beaten, sprayed with fire hoses, forced into separate restrooms, or forced to drink from designated water fountains…THEY AMALGAMATED WITH THE MASSES! Church, this is what happens when we leave JESUS (our FiRST LOVE), deify compromising, hypocritical, sin-laden, powerless, ungodly leaders, and put them out front to lead! The devil is a LIAR, and so is anyone who affirms these wicked stances! It’s time to REPENT, LIVE HOLY, get rooted in the WORD, put on the ARMOR OF GOD, PRAY AND FAST, and do what GOD commands of us. Let those of us that stand for GOD’S RIGHTEOUSNESS cover each other in prayer, including G, Craige, Tetaun, and all of EX MINISTRIES.

  26. Cheryl J Grady

    I am going to assume that the 50 or so seconds of the program that was ‘cut out’ from this link is where Ms. Washington spoke about accepting, embracing, or whatever, the LGBT people. What was left in was bad enough…I am shaking my head but I cannot be surprised. No one who wants to be successful within the “media world club” will say anything against sinful lifestyles-not even the ones who promote Christianity; they will just stay away from the subject altogether, making sure that some question doesn’t get asked of them. I agree so much with so many of the people who have posted. I especially like the scripture reference Sam Medina quoted in Psalm 101:3, ‘I will set before my eyes no vile thing. The deeds of faithless men I hate; they will not cling to me’. (NIV) Prophet J’s comment was straight on as well…It amazes me too that so many people that call themselves Christ followers, (oh no wait, they call themselves Christians), are proud to be so easily entangled with these new shows-specifically, Scandal and Empire. But there are so many shows that true believers should not even glance at which are too numerous to name. Face it, true Christ followers, there is barely anything on television that we should be watching…barely anything! What we must do as disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ is become workers, harvesting the field that Jesus says is plentiful. The word says in Matthew 9:37-38, Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”

    Did Serita Jakes just quote “shakespeare?” what the ????????????????”were all just actors on the stage? what kind of influenza strain was this cause it sure infected a lot of folks here.

    1. PROPHET J.

      According to the British Dictionary, the term actor has 2 distinct defintions:

      1) a person who acts in a play, film, broadcast, etc.

      2) (INFORMAL) a person who puts on a false manner in order to deceive others.

      I think that the latter definition is most applicable in this instance. Actors of that day were also described as HYPOCRITES. It seems that she inadvertently revealed the truth about their agenda, and who they REALLY are.

      We are NOT actors on a stage. Ephesians 2:10 says;

      “For we are HIS workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto GOOD WORKS,which God hath before ordained, that we should WALK IN THEM. I abide in Christ Jesus and He abides in me.

  28. Samantha

    Truth and Christianity ?????????????? She spends time with God every morning and clearly she has not heard what God says about being a part of another sins…..

    2 John 1:10-11New International Version (NIV)

    10 If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not take them into your house or welcome them. 11 Anyone who welcomes them shares in their wicked work.

    Yes you are still teachable Ms Washington and you should read this scripture and get taught what it means and what it means to Christian Business owners.
