Kate Upton: Religious and Proud of it!

by at . Comments

Supermodel Kate Upton says she's religious and proud of it, despite attempts by others in the industry to force her to downplay her Christian faith.

The 21-year-old got a cross tattoo on her finger so she could always show her devotion to God, the Elle cover girl revealed in the September issue.

Not unlike the way she says men treat her like a toy or an object, she revealed how it's upsetting to find that her religion isn't always taken seriously:

"I was at a photo shoot, wearing a cross necklace that my mom bought me, and somebody made a joke like, 'Why are you wearing a cross? Like you would be religious.'"

"And then they took [my necklace] away,” Kate Upton added. “I was really affected by that."

"The whole thing made me realize that I do want [a cross] with me, at all times."

In her new Elle interview, the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue stunner seems intent on showing that she is so much more than a pretty face (and body).

Just because she models for a living doesn't mean she's not a human being with brains and a devotion to her faith that should be respected, she says.

You guys can judge all you want. Jesus said, "He who is without sin cast the first stone." I'm not saying that modeling the way she does is agreeable. For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. I'm not proselytizing, but only God knows what is truly in her heart and we all should remember that before we condemn people, supermodel or not. Take the plank out of your own eye first and then you can help your fellow human remove the plank from their eye(s). She just seems confused and we all have experienced that from time to time Christian upbringing or not.

I had my doubts but now I'm certain- this little blonde is full of more shit than I could ever have imagined. Now I'm having my doubts about the strip club I frequent off I- 10, I'm thinking if they stand up there and show me their tits then SHIT.... They are Christians as well! They took her Cross? Yet she was able to carry on? Don't forget she was effected! I'm not bullshitting, it affected her! Where does she find the strength! Just keep talking Sweetie and you will remove all doubt!
