Carrie Underwood Responds to bigot Joseph Farah Criticisms Of her Pro-Gay Marriage comments…
Recently i posted about out Carrie Underwood’s pro-gay marriage stance. Well i knew it would not take long for the “Christian” trash to take her to task for it.
In an interview with the U.K. paper The Independent, Underwood had this to say: “I definitely think we should all have the right to love, and love publicly, the people that we want to love,”she said, before adding, ”Our church is gay friendly,” she says. “Above all, God wanted us to love others. It’s not about setting rules, or [saying] ‘everyone has to be like me.’ No. We’re all different. 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.”
Underwood as we know is a country superstar and lets face it, the majority of country fans are based in the south and tend to be bible beaters. So it’s not suprising that a bigoted, ignorant Joseph Farah, editor of right-wing website WND would rip Underwood in a commentary he posted today.
“What is a “gay friendly” church?” Farah asks. “Is it one that affirms people in their sin? Or is it one that welcomes sinners and confronts them with it to bring them to the saving knowledge of Jesus? I suspect Carrie Underwood attends a church that does the former rather than the latter.”
I will tell you what an anti-gay church is; one that affirms bigotry and discrimination, now that is sin. And just like so many “Christians” , Farah obviously knows nothing about Jesus. Because if he did, he would know that he loved everyone equally, hookers, lepers, criminals, the god fearing, etc. Jesus saved EVERYONE…Stupid fuck….Can i get an Amen up in here!
Underwood says “I was asked a difficult question in the last five minutes of an interview and I answered it the best way I knew how, and after that I do what I do and I love making music and I generally try to stay out of any kind of controversy,” she says.
“The role-model word is really scary to me, because no matter what happens in your life, something you do, wear, say, sing, whatever — somebody somewhere is probably not going to like it too well,” she said. “I just really try hard to do what I do and try to be nice to people and make great music and if people think they can look up to that, that’s wonderful. If not, that’s OK too.”
Honey, It is not a difficult question. You answered it perfectly. Everyone deserves equal rights in this country. It is that simple.
