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?

Cheesy Carrie Underwood has no religious beliefs. She panders to the liberal press. She sings like a chicken in a cracker-barrel.

My friend is 21 and just came out to his family. He is not a kid you would've ever thought was gay, and his parents are really struggling with it because we're from a small farm town in the lower Midwest - generally not an accepting area. However, he is a genuinely nice guy and loves everyone. He tried for years to be in relationships with girls and couldn't go on living a lie. Why would God want someone to lie just to be accepted by society? God makes us who we are and loves each of his children. He knows us and the path each of us will travel and while we will sin along the way he KNOWS that and loves us anyway. It's just up to us to live our lives as he wants us to, by loving those around us despite our differences. Way to go, Carrie. You definitely have the right idea of how God wants us all to be.

Alright you guys listen. Yeah they say being gay is a sin. But do you think you are so perfect that you arent going to die sin free? Alot of them cant help it I have gay friends so I can support that! You arent a real christian if your going to use the bible as a weapon to spread hate. Thats not what Jesus intended and if you were a real christian you would understand that. The bible may say its a sin but that doesnt mean they are gonna go to hell for it. You guys need to read the bible without all your judgements in mind for once.

America is now number one in teen pregnancy and violent crime
Number one in illiteracy, drug use, and divorce
Everyday a new holocaust of 5,000 unborn die
While pornography floods our streets like open sewers America's dead and dying hand is on the threshold of the Church
While the spirit of Sodom and Gomorrah vex us all
When it gets to the point where people would rather
Come out of the closet than clean it
It's a sign that the judgment of God is gonna fall If there's ever been a time to rise up Church, it's now
And as the blood bought saints of the living God proclaim
That it's time to sound the alarm from the Church house to the White House
And say, "We want God in America again"

Wow, shame on her? God is Love, Bernie. Jesus died for YOUR sins as well as those of every other believer - gay, straight, white, black, red, purple or blue. And gay children are made from heterosexual parents sooooo why don't you haters worry more about yourselves and less about people you don't know? Why don't you self-righteous religious nuts who use your Bible to preach hate give a word-for-word quote from JESUS on gays? You won't find it because he never said anything about it - stop living in the old testament because Jesus changed everything.

I don't think Carrie should be attacked for her opinion on this matter. She never said that she was against it or for it. She just stated how she would feel if someone told her no on who to marry...We as Christians shouldn't judge other people, bottom line. That is left up to GOD. That is what she said and everyone is on the attack when I believe her comments were heart felt. She believes in her faith and in love. It's not up to anyone to hate or down people because they are different.

Yay Carrie! God is about tolerance and love! All you hateful people who use your Bible as a weapon of hate should be ashamed! Theres a special place in hell for good Christians who preach hate in the name of God! Judge not lest ye be judged! Not one of you is without sin, so who are you to judge? If its wrong in the eyes of God. Its on them. Not you. Dont get your panties in a bunch. What happens in other people lives and relationships is none of your business.
