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 I love your voice I love ur music and we are all equal under the lord whom ever that may.be. It is people
Like u and Obama that are opening their eyes and their minds that we all are not the same but we are equal.
Who wrote gods word, man did. It is a wonderful work of fiction anyways. I am a heterosexual yet have an opened enough mind to allow for other ways to live one's life. Gays are not killing people, they just want the
Opportunity to love someone of the same sex and be loved back. We go to no ends on killing each other
But when it comes to loving each other we put up so many road blocks including religious ones. When will the
World open it's eyes and let people love one another?

I don't hate gays. I think they are part of nature's population control. If they want to marry, well, why not? You don't plan to peep into there windows at night, do you?

All i have too say is if god is perfect then if gay people are born that way god must have fucked up somewhere and if he is incharge of everything he wouldnt let gay people exist maybe you should pray and ask him why homosexuality exist in the end he has too be at fault.

She just don't get it Chritianity is not about how u feel if she is a christian as she is being potrayed then she ought to know that in christianity u don't ask God why or when He is God nd He determines how u shud live.Remember the time Jesus was to be crucified he almost wanted to like back out when he sed "fahter let this Cup pass over me but Him rembering that that is why God sent Him to the world in the first place He added not my will but thy Will be done"So what really matter is God is sayn gay/lesbianism is a sin

Maybe she really feels this way or maybe she's just saying what she sounds good at the time- protecting her image. Whos to say. I dont agree with her... but thats why we are all unique.

I not only support it, but I also agree with Carrie Underwood's statement, and I'm a devout Catholic. It was well said!!

It's funny how people say stuff about children being adopted by gays or gays using donors for kids.. They have more stable relationships than most heterosexuals who cheat on spouses, leave their children, or are just terrible parents to begin with. Gays are born to heterosexuals - as you point out they can't have their own children together - so why don't you look at that? God makes us who we are, it isn't a choice. Stop hating. THAT is what will tear America apart, not two dudes sleeping in the same bed. Let God deal with that because he already knows what's going to happen in the end.
