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?

You religious nuts need to get the fuck over yourselves. The bible was written by man not doG so I would think that it probably contains a few opinions from those who wrote it. Besides those without sin cast the first stone, and doG will judge all as he or she wants.

God tell us to love each other not marry with the same sex..It means that we don't hate gay people but their lifestyle (gay relationship) that should we avoid..God doesn't hate gay people..He forbid same marriage because it is wrong.He creates man and woman to complete and support each other..
gay couple usually adopt baby or make child through sperm or ovum donor..lets see..there will come a day when people realize this kind relationship will make world screwed up..maybe it'll happened such genetic disorder because the parents don't know that they are related by blood (sibling)

unlike other sins, homosexuality has a severe judgment administered by God Himself. This judgment is simple: they are given over to their passions. That means that their hearts are allowed to be hardened by their sins (Romans 1:24). As a result, they can no longer see the error of what they are doing, and then they go and promote it and condemn others who don't participate in their sin. So, without an awareness of their sinfulness, there will be no repentance and trusting in Jesus. Without Jesus, they will have no forgiveness. Without forgiveness, there is no salvation. Without salvation, there is only damnation in eternal hell.

The creator of the heaven and earth disapprove of same sex marriage. Throughout the Bible it shows how he feels. It is not about how we feel or think. The true God created us and he know what is best for us. He created the whole world and everything in it and most of all he knows what is best for us. Can any of us resurrect a living thing but the true God can and he has proven so by means of his son Jesus Christ. He does not approve of homosexuality. If we are follower of Jesus we will not be supporting anything that goes against the true God.

She is a fool if she feels this way and really has no business stepping into the house of God. She apparently does not know God. She needs salvation, to accept Jesus as her Lord and Savior. You can not call yourself a Christian if you hold onto to the ideas that being a homosexual is acceptable to God.

Way to go Carrie!! I'm not gay, but I support the right to love whomever you want. For all these idiots blathering about sin and God and what would Jesus do?????? You probably believe Jesus was born a Christian! Get over yourselves and leave the judging to God.
