Ben Higgins says he has a few questions for Hannah Brown.
And they all center around two rather important topics:
We've suddenly got your attention, don't we?
During a podcast discussion on Tuesday with Bachelor Nation’s Courtney Robertson, Higgins honed in on how open Brown has been during this season of The Bachelorette about the pair of subject cited above.
She has talked often about both her faith and, to be frank, her f-cking.
We're not being crass here. Hannah literally told the camera that she "f-cked" one of her suitors in a windmill. Twice.
“One thing that I think Hannah is doing that is a little bit confusing is ... she’s saying things like, ‘We all fall short and we need God’s grace,’” the former Bachelor lead said to Robertson, adding that he isn't certain how to square Hannah's fondness for sex with her belief in Jesus Christ.
“Within that speech, she’s admitting to an incorrect decision, which on the show, I’m watching this and can kind of get behind her saying, ‘No, I feel good about this [decision to have sex],’” Higgins continued, referencing an Instagram post Brown shared last month.
“And so is she saying she made a mistake by doing this? Or is she owning it and saying, ‘I’m confident in my decision to do this?’
"Because there are two different things that are happening … and that’s the one part that is confusing me with Hannah."
Facing backlash from Christian trolls who have dared to sex-shame her online, Brown fired back this summer as follows:
"I am standing firm in believing that maybe God wants to use a mess like me to point to His goodness and grace. But dang, it's hard...
"We all fall short of the glory of God...we just happen to do it on national television."
What Higgins seems to be saying here is that Hannah wants to have it both ways.
She wants to admit to falling "short" when it comes to her religion, implying that her goal is to please the Almighty -- while also standing up for herself as a sexually active single person who just wants to get herself some D.
We never thought The Bachelorette would cause folks to debate religion and how one ought to balance one's love for God with one's love for making love... but here we are.
Higgins went on to claim that the one thing that he thinks Hannah has “not done well” is say one thing on air, but then jump on social media and make posts towards Luke that are “counterintuitive.”
Indeed, ousted suitor Luke Parker and Hannah finally went at each other this past Monday night.
But they did so with their clothes fully on, as Parker came right out and said he wanted off the show if Hannah had slept with any other contestant.
He did all he could to guilt trip Hannah for her sexual actions, acting as if he owned her and as if she had done something wrong by getting her bang on with these other eligible fellas.
"I have had sex, and, honestly, Jesus still loves me," Hannah said to Luke to put a capper on their epic argument.
“@AlabamaHannah The difference in how we view sin is seen in the response, I’m weeping at mine and you’re laughing at yours. All sin stings. My heart hurts for both of us,” Luke later Tweeted, which sparked a reaction from Brown as follows:
Time and time again jesus loved and ate with ‘sinners’ who laughed. and time and time again he rebuked ‘saints’ that judged. where do you fall Luke?
