Carrie Underwood Supports Gay Marriage Based on Religious Beliefs

by at . Comments

Carrie Underwood is not alone in supporting gay marriage, but she's one of the few stars to say she does so because of her strong religious beliefs.

The "Jesus, Take the Wheel" singer, a devout Christian, told Britain's The Independent newspaper that for her, marriage equality is rooted in faith.

"As a married person myself, I don't know what it's like to be told I can't marry somebody I love, who you want to marry forever," she 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."

Raised Baptist, Carrie recently switched to a non-denominational Christian congregation along with her husband, NHL player Mike Fisher.

You see a lot of religious objections to marriage equality, (like this hate-filled child), but Underwood said her faith inspired her to support gay marriage.

"Above all, God wanted us to love others," the Oklahoma-born CMT award winner said. "It's not about setting rules, or [saying] 'everyone has to be like me.'"

"No, we're all different," the 29-year-old continued. "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."

She makes a point, doesn't she?

Carrie your comments and your switch to a non denominational church demon-strate how the love of money rules your thoughts now...... God has given you tremendous beauty and a tremendous talent(as well as your husband) and you have slapped him in the face. You always love the people..... I am so with you there but you are getting yourself past your belief in God when you say you support it. I too love everyone and would never treat anyone badly or think worse of them. It is between them and God , but to outwardly support it ...I don't believe God will be very happy about that with all he has blessed you with. You have forgotten the Bible teachings and GODS WORDS which is a constant. It is the same yesterday today and tomorrow just like God....He doesn't change....... I will pray for you. God gives and God taketh away........


I think we all should love who we are and Know the consequences for loving who you want ,I'm Christian and I think that everyone should be treated equally without hate ,I don't think people should judge people ,Because No one is god and I believe he should be the only ultimate judge , Someone and my family is gay I will never be Hateful towards him or anyone else who's gay because it's his Choice , Jesus came to this earth with his love If you claim you're christian than you shoudn't be hateful towards anyone for how they choose to live you change people with love and kindness not hate and Cruelty .

We are supposed to love everybody and not judge as Christians/believer. But we also cannot mislead those who are disobeying God, and make it as if its right for them to live wrong. We can't judge, but we can't justify. Parents have to disipline their children so they know right from wrong. Not because they are judging, but because they are trying to protect them from something bad in the future. Its ok to tell someone when they are wrong, and still love them afterwards. But to flat out act like something wrong is right, we are not really showing we care, especially if an activity/sin is one that could cause them to lose their soul in hell, not because they are gay, but because they are disobeying God and rejecting God by living in rebellion. If a child disobeys their parent, that parent can disown them. And when people continuely sin and reject God, God has the right to disown them. And we are supposed to warn, but in love. And if a parent can warn and still love, so can we. No matter what, even when you are not trying to judge some people, they are going to say we are judging no matter what, just because they want to do what they want to do. But if we know a path could lead to enternal separation from God after these people die, we have to speak up. Otherwise we dont even need to talk about it at all. We just dont need to say we support or dont support. Because we cant be passive. The devil is out to steal, kill, and destroy souls. Nothing else. He does exist. And his job is to cause us to disobey and reject God through the lust of this world. We have to be lights, those of us who know better, to help save our brothers and sisters. Even if they dont want to hear the truth. We still have to say, what you are doing is wrong, and I dont agree with it, but I still love you and care about you. There is absolutly nothing wrong with that at all, and it is not judging, its called standing up for what we know is right without compromising our own faith and beliefs. We cant say we support what we really dont support. Because either we are for God, or enemies of God by being friends with the world and what the world stands for. There's not inbetween. That would be double-mindedness

Avatar response to Heather...perhaps you need to read your bible a little closer...New testament talks about marriage being "between one man and one woman" it does address what "marriage" IS. It's not that homosexuals are being "judged" that is up to God. But their "views" on pushing their agenda's down Christian's throat and not respecting "the other side" is rude and disrespectful. They can do whatever they wish (and stand before God as we all do in the end). Life is a choice and Christians (which some of you have such distain for)is about the forgiveness of sins through the sacrifice of Jesus and his death for them. We are NOT perfect, just forgiven and yes, Bobd, and "sin no more", which means when you know you've done something wrong, ask for forgiveness and DON'T DO IT AGAIN. Prayer us what our entire COUNTRY NEEDS RON,

@ Sheryl

I agree with you. I think sometimes believers are afraid to correct people in error. Its not judging to confront something thats not right out of love. Our boss can come to us and tell us when we done something wrong, and so can parents, and that doesn't mean that they dont care or that they are judging just because they correct us. How can people know they are wrong if nobody says anything. Everybody isn't a believer or a Christian, and not everybody understand why some things are wrong. Sin isn't the issue, being gay isn't the issue, no bad thing is an issue. The issue with us not doing bad things, is the fact that those things have the potential of taking us away from God. When we sin or disobey God's commandments, we reject God. Eventhough we still love God, we still reject him everytime we do something he doesn't want us to do. And its not about doing wrong, its the fact that God doesn't want us to lose our souls and be separated from him. We have to tell people the truth. Ezekiel 33:6 says that the watchman is supposed to warn the people. Just because warn, that doesn't mean we are judging. And just because we dont agree, doesn't mean we dont love them. We can't want to please God and please people at the same time. We have to love them though. But we dont have to agree. Galatians 1:10 - For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.

@ Pray

I am 45 years old and I lived 25 of those years in a gay relationships. I never thought I could change it, I was right but god can. I became a Christian, and prayed a lot for the lord to take it away . He gave me the grace to change. I have repented 5 years ago, and have not turned back. God tells us what sin is and if we love him we will obey him. Romans 1: 24-28 Wherefore god also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of god into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the creator. Therefore, God handed them over to degrading passions. Their females exchanged natural relations for unnatural, and the males likewise gave up natural relations with females and burned with lust for one another. Males did shameful things with males and thus received in their own persons the due penalty for their perversity. And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God handed them over to undiscerning mind to do what is improper.......We should not hate the sinner but we should hate the sin and stand for what is right , Romans 1: 32 Although they know the just decree of God that all who practice such things deserve death, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them.. My prayer is that people that are living in this sin will turn to our god and ask him to help you , you are loved by God and he wants you to love him, old things pass away, all things become new with our lord.....

@ Danielle Archer

Carrie you sang How Great Thou Art , the best I have ever had the privilege to hear, you have a voice straight from heaven..

@ Danielle Archer

Carrie underwood , Love you and your music, it is very inspirational..


Hey wat do u mean guy marige shuld be suported? De bible say if u want 2 be cold be cold nd if u want be hot be soporting their marige u r pretending 2 be a christien which u r not


Still love C. underwood....just some misguided faith.... God does say to love all and "the greatest of these is love" problem is God is not talking about sexual expression of love..In fact old and new testament alike condemn same sex marriage . Not God's plan, and in the greatest expression of His love toward us, gave his son as the atonement sacrifice for sin..all sin, adultry, and homosexuality. I can't presume to know the mind of God on this, except to say, He wouldn't have given sexual guidelines if it wasn't for our best.


Amused...You do amuse me. First of all, hetrosexualism is natural, Homosexualism isn't. Any anatomy book will tell you that. Second, You stated that gay marriage is not going to turn the whole world gay, granted yes, however, what is being done here is the fact that unnatural acts are being condoned and made offical to the world. Nature has a way of controlling the population, Nature has a tendency to find a way to correct an unnatural act. And God one day will have had enough and correct the problem himself. Either way Carrie as well as many other celebs are cashing in on the newest fad. Plain and simple.


I agree with Carrie but that doesn't mean i don't see what other people are saying. Its your own opinion and i cant change your mind. But imagine if it was the other way around where it was a "sin" to be heterosexual and the norm was to be gay what would you do and i for one don't see the big deal in letting them get married its not like its going to turn the whole world gay and they only want the same rights as a married couple everyone has a right to their own opinion so for all you people who think Carrie isn't Christan this is just her interpretation of the bible not yours so lay off


Another example of a celeb trying to increase their fanbase. That's all it is...A beautiful person has sank below her values to jump on the newest bandwagon. The bandwagon of homosexual marriage has allowed celebs to profit, which in other situations she would not. Take a look at all of what has currently happened (Carrie Underwood, Green Latern, etc.. These people have changed themselves to gain public support. That is what GREED will do to you.


What a colossal bunch of morons this thread represents. No wonder America falls further behind the rest of the civilized world every year. Clearly, the low salaries we pay educators have combined with the intellectual/moral deathgrip of evangelical Christians to produce a nation of fools, bigots, and mental midgets.


For all the people who think they are "Christians" you might want to go and re read your bibles. All if the statements made on homosexuality were in the old testament of the bible. If we are going to live by the word and follow all the laws of the bible, then I guess we better start sacrificing animals and our first born children for our sins. People have manipulated the original script of the bible from day one. The entire bible other than the words that Jesus himself spoke are nothing but opioionated statements and storytelling. You should all quit judging people and worry about yourselves and let people live their lives the way they want. Judge and ye shall be judged!

I feel more beautiful when I see the pictures after. I'm like, 'I wish I had felt like I looked like that when I was actually there.'

Carrie Underwood

I’m content with 90 percent of me. I like my teeth. Sometimes I wonder if my orthodontist realizes how important he was.
