American Idol alum Carrie Underwood is a good ole Christian gal, but did you know that she also supports gay marriage? It was in fact, her own marriage that attributed to her feeling so strongly about it. Read on for more!
It’s no secret that American Idol‘s Carrie Underwood is a Christian girl, but did you know that she fully supports marriage equality? Speaking to a British newspaper recently, Carrie revealed: “As a married person myself, I don’t know what it’s like to be told I can’t marry somebody I love and want to marry,” adding: “Above all, God wanted us to love others. It’s not about setting rules, or (saying) ‘everyone has to be like me.’”
Now, one thing that Carrie does not agree with is those who use the Bible to preach hate, adding “that’s not how I want myself as a Christian to be represented.” The 29-year-old country star revealed that the church she attends with husband, Mike Fisher is a “gay friendly” church. Underwood then reiterated that it’s how we are different that makes us all special, and “we have to love each other and get on with each other. It’s not up to me to judge anybody.”
