Last week, Carrie Underwood, country music superstar and self-proclaimed Christian, voiced her support for gay marriage. In case you missed it, here’s what she said. All shocking points, I know. People have the right to love who they choose? People shouldn’t be afraid to live their lives publicly because who they choose to love? Get the fuck outta here, man. Edge reports:
“As a married person myself, I don’t know what it’s like to be told I can’t marry somebody I love, and want to marry,” Underwood said. “I can’t imagine how that must feel. I definitely think we should all have the right to love, and love publicly, the people that we want to love.” “Our church is gay friendly,” the “Jesus, Take the Wheel” singer said. “Above all, God wanted us to love others. It’s not about setting rules, or [saying] ’everyone has to be like me’. No. We’re all different. That’s what makes us special. We have to love each other and get on with each other. It’s not up to me to judge anybody.”
And as expected, Christian conservatives now believe she is possessed by the devil. Beating your ex’s truck with a bat? Cool. Letting an imaginary entity drive your car? Cool. Love and acceptance for all? WHAT DEMONRY IS THIS???!!
“I warned @carrieunderwood fans that their idol was going to get backlash for her support of marriage perversion and I was right! #asusual,” one person tweeted.
“@carrieunderwood Is a disgrace. Being vegan and supporting gay marriage doesn’t seem very country at all,” another said.
“Another day, and a another ’gospel’ artist signed to ’EMI’ comes out supporting gay marriage.@carrieunderwood Unequally signed to the devil,” someone wrote.
“Using Christianity to defend and promote homosexuality is insulting. Ugh,” someone said. “Being Saved doesn’t stop you from being dumb,” another wrote. “Jesus just let go of the wheel,” a commenter said.
Ok, so here’s the thing. “Christian” literally means “Christ-like”, so if you say you’re a Christian and you hate an entire segment of the population, you’re fucking doing it wrong. Sorry. Not sure what to tell you. If a gay couple can ruin your marriage, you should probably spend more time fucking your wife and less time being concerned what Neil and Bob are doing in theirs. The church didn’t like who Jesus chose to hang around with either, you know, then they had him killed. So if a book written centuries after the fact let’s you sleep better at night because it allows you not to think for yourself, then have at it. But just to reiterate, you’ll be dead soon too. Praise God.
