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?

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.

Yeah...shame on you, Carrie, for not being a hateful, ignorant bigot who believes you have the right to judge others and take away their fundamental rights as an American.

all religion aside there is just something inherently wrong with being gay. First, the rectum is part of the large intestines that was made for waste products let me stress WASTE products to exit the body. Unless people like tho get sh@@ on. Secondly, if we were made to be gay then your existence would not be here as a matter of fact people on this earth would not exist.Â
