ABBA credits 'the gays' for their return to music

ABBA credits 'the gays' for their return to music
@Brian37

ABBA is just here to make music for the gays

Quote:The band which consists of Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson, and Anni-Frid Lyngstad are collectively gay icons and they know it.

In an interview with Gay Times, Ulvaeus spoke about the groups return to music, noting that they were “very proud” of the outpouring of love to ABBA from LGBTQ+ fans, “We found out quite early that Dancing Queen had become an anthem and we were very proud that we’ve been chosen by the community,” he told the outlet.

“As a Swede, long before most others, we had a much more open society and open attitudes. This is, in a way, a liberating anthem and it makes me proud. It’s a wonderful thing, it really is,” Ulvaeus continued.

I find myself shocked and saddened by this news - all this time, I've been defending the taste and discernment of gay people as regards the arts.

Hurricanes blow, ABBA sucks.

Dr. Ishiro Serizawa : There are some things beyond our understanding, Mark. We must accept them and *learn* from them. Because these moments of crisis are also potential moments of faith. A time - when we either come together or fall apart. Nature always has a way of balancing itself. The only question is... What part - will we play.

Um no, ABBA makes music for everyone, they are just happy to support LGBT and get support from LGBT. 

Your link in blue above is misleading "ABBA is just here to make music for the gays."

And don't say "the gays", they are not a separate species.

DON'T MAKE ME TAKE YOU OUT BACK SO YOU CAN KICK MY ASS! And for that matter, Florence is the last hurricane I am going to ask for your help with Mr Smarty pants!

And just for that....

The headline in the article was 'ABBA Credits The Gays For Their Return To Music'. [bold mine] The article is from 'Out' magazine, a gay culture periodical. 

Gay people have no problem saying 'the gays'.  Lighten the fuck up.

That was a surprise. If there was one group that I thought that gays will revive it would be The Bee Gees.
teachings of the Bible are so muddled and self-contradictory that it was possible for Christians to happily burn heretics alive for five long centuries. It was even possible for the most venerated patriarchs of the Church, like St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas, to conclude that heretics should be tortured (Augustine) or killed outright (Aquinas). Martin Luther and John Calvin advocated the wholesale murder of heretics, apostates, Jews, and witches. - Sam Harris, "Letter To A Christian Nation"
